    It all started with a grinding sound. Within 20 miles it evolved into a death rattle...

    Mrs Badger was driving our beloved camouflage van home when the tranny up and died on her. Thanks to AAA we got it towed back home. But, alas, we are in dire need of another rig so I am posting my Bushmaster M4 rifle for sale on here in an effort to raise funds for a vehicle.

    For sale:
    Bushmaster M4 (only took it to the range once!)
    30 round magazine (12 ea.)
    A couple hundred rounds of 5.56mm ammo (including a couple dozen blanks)
    Blank firing adapter (not pictured)
    Speed loader for stripped ammo
    M9 Bayonet (new, not pictured)
    Brand new pair of "Wiley X" shooting glasses (includes all accessories)
    Original Bushmaster Hard case

    Price: $1,000

    Rifle has only been taken to range once, when I initially zeroed it. Been stored in hard case ever since. Rifle has OD sling, bayonet lug, 4 position collapsible butt stock, detachable carry handle, picatinny rail perfect for scope or reflex sight.

    PM me if you're interested.

    Gosh Badger, that is bad and I'm sorry you have to part with the rifle. Too many folks selling neat things here - anyone know a good divorce lawyer?

    If you don't have any luck here try the ar15.com equipment exchange, I don't think you will have a hard time selling it.

    Sorry to hear about your van.

    And I'm heartbroken to miss out on this deal.

    Seriously.

    Good luck with the tranny, and the sale badger, looks like a nice setup.

    The Bushmaster has left the building!

    Thanks for the interest and Happy New Year to all the open-carriers out there. I'm off to the dealership to grab a pick up now.

    Just a helpful hint... NEVER, NEVER, NEVER store your rifle in a case that has foam or fabric in it. NEVER store your rifle in plastic. These materials retain moisture which your rifle sits in. This will obviously rust, and possibly ruin your rifle. I am especially sensitive about the M4 because I have one. It is better to store it upright in a closet, leaning against a wall than to store it in those foam- lined hard cases. Of course a gunsafe is best, but PLEASE, don't use your hard case to lock up your M4 (or other guns for that matter).

    A 1911 that works properly is as rare as a Glock that doesn't.

    Because you want your foam to absorbe the oil??? OK, if you don't want to listen... You'll have a harder time selling that rifle to anyone who knows anything about them if you don't take care of it.

    If the firearm is oiled properly and the exterior is wiped down, the foam shouldn't absorb too much oil, right?

    If you throw in several packs of dessicant at regular intervals inside the casethe firearmshouldn't rust at all, right?

    I'm just asking. I don't store mine in the foam cases, but firearm manufactures ship and store them in the cases, so it can't be a 100% no-no to do.
