I found these two 1975 ads today for the brand new Bushmaster Armpistol (at the time) in a Shotgun News dated 5/1/75.  I thought I would share them here, for anyone who has interest in the pistol which was touted as "the most powerful handgun in the world" at the time.

i saw a pair a few years ago at a show, along with some original gwynn bushmaster rifles. 

 

 

 

Neat , not super expensive either but I'm all about buying things that have readily available replacement parts.

StooperZero,

 

Replacement parts are nil for the Armpistol, except for a few parts that interchange with the M16, from what my brother has indicated to me in the past.  His Armpistol will fire, but is quite unreliable.  If you want one, look for one you can test fire first.
