Bushmaster and Law Enforcement: Why Agencies Use Bushmaster Firearms

Headquartered in Madison, N.C., Bushmaster Firearms International is the most popular manufacturer of semi-automatic rifles for military personnel and police departments from more than 50 countries worldwide, according to Bushmaster’s website.

So, why do Bushmaster firearms hold such universal appeal with law enforcement agencies?

Specialization
Military and law enforcement agents are confronting enemies and criminals who are increasingly better equipped with the best of weaponry. According to an analysis by Dury’s Gun Shop, police officers and soldiers need weapons that can fit a variety of dangerous situations, from building-to-building searches and room-to-room combat to fighting overseas and in urban areas. Bushmaster is a widespread choice with the police and military because it offers several options for various operations. For example, the Bushmaster ACR can be adapted for a range of situations thanks to its tool-less quick-change barrel, variety of barrel lengths and calibers, and a bolt assembly that can be modified from 6.8 mm Remington SPC to 223/5.56 mm NATO.

Dependability
Bushmaster’s AR-15 rifle is the weapon of choice for military and law enforcement members when entering combat scenarios because of its reliability, according to the Men with AR-15 website. The AR-15 has a track record of dependability and accuracy dating back to its creation in the 1960s, when the rifle was “radically different than other guns of the time, many of which featured heavy wooden stocks and outdated bolt-action systems.”

The ACR’s trustworthiness for law enforcement purposes is due largely to its ability to withstand harsh conditions, according to Dury’s Gun Shop. Bushmaster collaborated with Magpul and Remington to concoct a specialized finish buffered with dry lubricant designed to greatly extend the weapon’s bore.

Agility
Military personnel and law enforcement agents turn to Bushmaster firearms like the Adaptive Combat Rifle for their adaptability, according to Ammo Land. The ACR “redefines the term ‘modular’ with the extraordinary ability to change calibers, barrel lengths and stock configurations in less than two minutes – without the use of tools,” according to Ammo Land. Such qualities, along with ease of modifications, an adjustable barrel length and adaptive caliber capabilities, are essential when engaged in combat or fighting gangs and other criminal elements, according to Dury’s Gun Shop.
