Iam looking to purchase a "AR" style rifle for predator hunting. Does anyone have any experience or knowledge regarding the Remington R-15 VTR?

Pretty expensive for an AR clone... nice camo job though.
My suggestion would be to build one from the ground up. That way you'll end up with exactly what you want, with no extras, in the caliber you choose, and you'll learn how to deal with any broken parts that may eventually crop up. It's so easy a caveman can do it.
Be prepared to wait a long, long time, due to the run on all things AR since Obama was incarnated as the Messiah.
The good 'ol days were as recent as last September when I was able to pick up these lowers for only $85 each...

The Rem. R-15 is made by Bushmaster, or at least Remington bought Bushmaster, so I would think it's a pretty good rifle though I have not personally seen one yet. I don't think the price is bad compared to some of the other AR's out there.

I was reading an article about the R-15 a few months back and it said that they are not available in california?? Not positive but I remember it cause I WAS gonna buy one.

Remington won't ship direct to CA because of the stupid AW ban. Because of the pistol grip, a CA FFL will need to order from an out-of-state FFL that pre-installs a bullet button (or similar device) in order to require the use of a tool to detach the attachable magazine (i.e., weapon must not be capable of accepting a detachable magazine).
Stupid, stupid, stupid Democrats... vote these folks out of office before it gets worse.

O.... well, illegal in california means no go for me then! I guess it was a good thought while it lasted! MAN I LOVE THIS STATE!

It is not a priori illegal in California, as the receiver is not a listed receiver, and it can very simply made to comply with the law in about 20 second.
If you have your heart set on it, order it, have it sent to an out-of-state FFL that agrees beforehand to install a bullet button, and then agrees (beforehand) to ship it to a local CA FFL that will deal in OLL's.
Sounds complicated, but in reality very simple.

umm.....yes your right, it does sound complicated....????

As evidence that it is in fact, not complicated (only sounds complicated), many estimate that at least 500,000 AR type lower receivers have been sold (LEGALLY) in California in the past two year.
The Internet is your friend...
Need a midleman FFL? - Calguns.net (http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/showthread.php?t=144422)
I am based in AZ and an registered with the CA DOJ. I can receive from FFL's not willing to ship into CA and then forward the item on to your FFL in CA.
My fees are $10.00 for the first firearm, $5.00 for each additional firearm up to $20.00 total and plus actual USPS Priority Insured shipping from me to your dealer in CA.
3 firearms would cost you $15.00 + actual shipping.
6 firearms would cost you $20.00 + actual shipping.
Fees are based on all firearms being received and shipped out together. I will put a limit of 6 firearms in a single shipment. I will only be receiving from other FFL's in these transactions.
Contact me with any questions.

on these kind of guns, what does the bullet button do???
03-23-2009, 07:55 PM
The bullet button is necessary to comply with the stupid CA assault weapon law, by altering the function of the lower receiver such that a tool is required to remove the attachable magazine (emphasis added).
