Along with a new R1, Remington has trimmed the fat from Bushmaster. They have simplified their components. So no more commercial buffer tubes. Every AR will have mil-spec buffer tubes. Their new Bushmaster Minimalist has been set up with some premium accessories. It will come with an MFT Minimalist stock and grip. They will use an AAC Square Drop handguard and an AAC flash hider. They have gone with an ALG Advanced Combat Trigger. The one they brought was chambered in .300blk and with their AAC can, it was very quiet with subsonic loads.


The Bushmaster Minimalist has an MSRP for $1169

Just for me to drool over.  Most of you know, I cannot afford a cap gun, much less a new real one!

  1. Interesting…I wonder what the street prices will be? Not that I have any excess funds either post retirement.
    I already have hand cannons in revo form but the 10mm has a cult following among some gun folks. (the LAST thing I need is yet another caliber to reload for!)

    A lot of the cool kids on the innerwebs like to trash talk Remington because of the conglomerate buying up so many name brands and then cutting costs of production and perceived quality. Many times it is deserved.
    I would love to see Big Green get through the bad economy intact and get back to being well respected brand.

    • As to the street prices? Who knows?
      I’ve never owned a 10, but have shot a few.
      VERY accurate. IMHO.
      Regarding Big Green? Again, who knows?
      I’m hoping the free market weeds out the
      bad guys…
      I would like to see both success and quality.

  3. I’ll stick with my old 1911s… Don’t care for the 10mm, IMHO it doesn’t buy me anything I don’t already have…
