Navarone Bushmaster from Riley

I call this a parts Navarone Bushmaster because while the gun and engraved sight rail came from the same seller together the sight rail that came attached to the gun was non engraved and I switched the engraved sight rail onto it. The original owner, Samuel “Riley” Riley was a part time airsmith at Unique Sporting Good in Anaheim where he acquired this bushmaster. I’ll have to ask whether he received the Bushmaster with the Navarone sight rail on it.

The later style post 90 snub looks as though it may have originally been polished diamond dust but I’m not sure. The direct feed is close to original Diamond Dust hard anodizing but the body is nicely polished.

The finish/polish body is nice though and the overall Bushmaster (body finish, engraving, generation) looks similar to a Navarone Bushmaster that Paul “PWPaintball Weber owns (minus the nice green Line 45 Trigger frame.

Paul’s Navarone Line Si Bushmaster can be seen here on mcarterbrown.com:

Judging from Paul’s Bushmaster I would guess this sight rail originally did come on this Bushmaster but who knows. Not all Navarone Bushmasters were engraved so the lacking engraved arms isn’t a big deal.

Here is Navarone player Rick Rector’s Line SI Bushmaster which didn’t have engraved arms or an engraved sight rail:
