I figured I would be seeing pictures of the Remington R-15 AR rifle and possible range reports with pictures and interet groups! Nothing yet as far as I have seen.

My local shop has a good deal on them on I'm waiting for the call to get one in .223 with an 18" barrel. It's gonna be a mean light weight coyote slayer.

There are better guns for the money. It isn't a bad gun by any stretch but a DPMS can be had for less or a RRA with a 2 Stage Trigger can be had for the same money.

Edit: Deleted before I de-rail my own thread. Just looking for folks that may have them in their hands and how they're working out.

it was designed with Bushmaster R&D consulting.

But it appears to be built by Remington. These days, that's not exactly confidence-inspiring.

Why buy the re-badge ? Just buy the original.

The Remington R-15 is a "hunting rifle" and everybody knows that the Bushmaster is one of those "evil" rifles..... :what: jeesh, can't you tell the difference... The Remington is camo..... plus it costs a lot more than the Bushmaster....:confused:

I live near the Remington HQ and talked to some of the folks involved.

It is a Bushmaster, just prettied up with camo and Remington's name.
