The Bushmaster Predator was built as a result of numerous requests by hunters who wanted a slightly shorter barrel and a lighter swing weight in a carry rifle for predator hunting/calling. This 20" barreled version of the popular Varminter will deliver all the accuracy you've come to expect from a Bushmaster. The barrel is fluted 4150 ChroMoly Vanadium Steel (not chrome-lined) with sharp 1 in 8" twist rifling for the heavier bullets typically used on bigger varmints and predators. A vented aluminum tubular forend free-flooats the barrel from the receiver forward for optimum accuracy and an ambidextrous, ergonomically-designed pistol grip is included, with a rubberized, non-slip textured surface. Mini-risers are mounted on the flat-top upper receiver to raise mounted scopes ½" for a correct sight picture and comfortable cheekweld on the stock. Shipped in a hard plastic, lockable storage case complete with a black web sling, an orange safety block, a 5-round magazine, and the operating and safety instruction manual. One year Bushmaster warranty.
