You can ask 10 different people what the best survival rifle is and you will get 10 different answers. Well I am going to give you my answer. The Bushmaster CAR15 .223 in my opinion is a great survival rifle for so many reasons.
First lets start with the basics of the rifle. This is an AR platform that performs very well. It has a carbon 15 upper and lower, 16″ lightweight barrel, telescoping stock, Bushnell red dot sight, 30 round magazine and it weighs in around 5 pounds. The Bushmaster rifle is legal in most states but unfortunately is illegal in a few states because of certain features (you know what states you are, wake up and give your citizens their rights!.) We know we might hear a lot of negative feedback and disagreement because we are saying an AR with a .223 round is a great survival rifle. Do we care? Actually no we don’t. We think after are testing and the facts we are laying out we might actually change some minds. We are confident this rifle would perform in any situation and the reasons below are why.
