Bushmaster Delivers with New Magpul-Decked Rifles for 2013

Earlier this year, Bushmaster announced at SHOT Show that they would be offering several of their rifles configured with Magpul furniture, specifically the new MOE fixed rifle-length buttstock.

These rifles will expand on Bushmaster’s higher-end offerings, their Varminter, Predator and 308 Hunter models. The Firearm Blog scored some photos of the newly-reconfigured rifles.

First up is the new Predator, which will be available in three models, basic black, A-TACS camoflage and black with a bullet button for California (not shown). Depending on the finish the standard A2-stocked Predator the MSRP varies between $1,414 and $1,518.

They have extra-heavy fluted barrels with a 1-in-8 rate of twist for heavier bullet stabilization that measure in at 20 inches in length. The barrels are not chrome-lined and have 11-degree target crowns in addition to using free-floating handguards for utmost accuracy.

Bushmaster will also be rolling MOE stocks on their Varminter rifles, which will be available in four models, stainless, matte black, black with a bullet button (not shown) and one with A-TACS camo print (also not shown, but the same camo finish as the Varminter above).

The Varminters also have extra-heavy fluted barrels, but they’re longer at 24 inches and made with 1-in-9 twists for light, fast bullets more commonly used for small to medium game and varminting.
