Our Assessment: The predecessor to the LAR-8, the Bushmaster .308 is a true AR-10 with a unique feature as the BAR serialized (PreBan) rifles all used and were compatible with metric and/or inch pattern FAL magazines.  Bushmaster has been synonymous for decades with law enforcement and military rifles and the Bushmaster .308 is no different.  It is a mean powerhouse of a gun that sports the classic ArmaLite rifle aesthetic.  This is a rifle that would make a great addition to any collection as it glows with a particular beauty as only preban rifles do.  Good Luck!
