    AR15 -- m4 xm15-e2s in iraq

    this was my m4 and 92f that i was isued in iraq
    it is a bushmaster semi+3rd burst civilian weapon as was my 92f we were not allowed anything military
    never a stopage from both and the m4 took the british high velocety ammo no probs btu it kicked like a mule
    it was a pleasure to shoot ,, even in anger i could rely on it not to let me down ,a great design and it just feels right ,,looks right ,which usualy was right
    i believe bushmaster is the old armelight company ??
    The correct designation for your carbine is Bushmaster xm15-e2s m4 M4A2, as it has the non-removable carry handle.

    You write: "it is a bushmaster semi+3rd burst civilian weapon as was my 92f" - I assume you dont really mean, that your pistol has a three round burst, but that only your carbine has that nifty feature and that your handgun is civilian and not three round burst.
    If your pistol was selective fire, that would make your handgun the Beretta 93R, which is not the one pictured (the 93R has a handgrip underneath the frame and is further more a relatively rare gun).

    Bushmaster and ARMALITE are two different entities entirely. Long story short, what might have caused the confusion is that Bushmaster makes rifles of the Colt/Armalite design (amongst others).
    Plenty of reference for that on the web, so I wont bore anybody with that. Anyway, google the firearms genius Eugene Stoner and all will be revealed.

    if anyone shows interest
    i could post some pics of our battle damaged vehicles
    they hit us hard

    2 of my team were killed in basrah and we lost over 30 guys in the 14 months i was there
    not a nice subject i know
    but some of the pics are interesting
    i had a few very close calls ,,few intence but short fire fights
    our bigest threat was insegents dressed as iraqi police
    doesnt that ring true for afgan now ,,,unfortunately
    I have plenty of pics of thrashed vehicles, but I was with a regular army unit, so more blown up vehicles, than I care to remember.
