I traded a Marlin Cowboy 45-70 and a Sig Sauer 45 M2 Mauser pistol for a Bushmaster
XM15 E2S 20in Barrel Rifle:
Features of this lightweight, semi-automatic rifle include a heavy barrel with a gov't. mil. spec. chrome lining in both bore and chamber for optimum durability and accuracy. The 20" barrel, and all steel components, are manganese phosphate coated for complete protection against exterior corrosion or rust. The latest M16A2 rear sight system is incorporated offering dual flip-up apertures: the short range aperture (0-200 meters) has a larger opening for greater light gathering as well as better moving target visibility; the smaller aperture is designed for maximum accuracy at longer ranges. Knobs adjust the sight for windage and elevation - the elevation knob is graduated from 300 to 800 meters so that range adjustments may be made without the need to compensate for bullet drop. The receivers, of 7075T6 aircraft quality aluminum, are precision machined from forgings for maximum strength. The upper receiver includes an integral cartridge case deflector and a last round bolt hold open feature to alert the shooter of an empty magazine. The ribbed front handguard offers increased control and heat dissipation and is molded of mil. spec. polymer thermoset composite. The XM15 E2S 20" Rifle is shipped in our clamshell style hard case complete with 10 round magazine, operating, safety and instruction manual, and sling.
In addition I added a hogue pistol grip and a hogue free floating hand guard,an extra clip,kept my 3x9 Swift scope and rings from the 45-70 to be added on to the predator rifle.Also added on the Harris 13 and 1/2 to 27" adjuidtable bipods,and a Butler Creek sling.We traded even for all that.
Still one shot,one kill, they are highly accurate,and so am I
...but a lot of fun to plink with,and there is always the extreme danger of another coyote I didn't see actually getting away with the single shot Encore 22-250! I wanted both rifles,because I'll be taking my grandson with me a lot and his 30-30 wouldn't quite cut it!
