Bushmaster 20 IZ .308

Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

This rifle had a ball-type detent on its cocking handle, which we liked better than the springcatch common to the others.
This ominous-looking device was actually three short rails formed into the gas block on the Bushmaster. Underneath it were three tapped holes filled with Allen screws to keep it in place. Yet there was no forward sling mount.
