Remington VTR R15

When the VTR R15 first came out, I bought one. I think it was literally the first in our state. Traveled 400 miles to pick it up. Was so excited about this gun and thought it was just so neat, I bought another! Had them for over a year and still have yet to fire a round through them. I don't know much about this gun because I NEVER see, hear, or read anything on it. I've done searches and there seems to be no one who owns this gun. When I mention to others what it is, they give me a funny look. Its the R15 with the Max 1 Camo and triangular stainless barrel. I would like to know if others have it and how well it performs compared to other AR's. The main reason why I bought it was because it was kind of based around Preditor hunting.... already came with camo, 24" barrel, etc.... So, if anyone has any info they would like to share, whether you own this gun, shot this gun, or have heard anything about it, please chime in. I would really like to start shooting one of them. Thanks


Jason

Re: Remington VTR R15

Not personally familar but, did go to Remy site and read up on it. It sounds like it's a pretty good gun but, I think I would get out there and shoot it. Comparisons are nice but, what's important is how does yours shoot and are you satisfied that it will accomplish what you want it to accomplish. Go shoot it and have some fun. Just my 2 cents.

Lol. See, thats what I'm talking about. No one seems to know anything about this gun. I know tons have sold because they use to be hard to come by. Guess its time to put a scope on one of them and go shooting. Thanks

Are these Remington AR's a Bushmaster frame? Are they made by Bushmaster like some say and if so, I wonder if there there made the exact same, just camo'd up. I've never owned any AR style rifles before; the reason for all the questions. Plus, the Rem. web site doesn't tell you much about this gun. Just says it has a crisp trigger (I don't think so) and the "Triangular 24" barrel provides rapid cooling and extreme rigidity. Accuracy is amazing. “How do these Rem. AR's compare to some of the other more popular DPMS, Bushmaster, etc.. AR's. Has to be someone that owns one. Thanks for the input guys.

Re: Remington VTR R15

Remington, Marlin, DPMS, Bushmaster are all owned by the same parent company. I would assume the rifles are Bushmasters. I didn't know they made a VTR R15. I am very interested how it shoots..
