MidwayUSA discontinued a bunch of 450BM stuff.

Postby TonyRumore » Mon Mar 06, 2017 2:35 pm

Looking at Midway's website, it looks like either Bushmaster themselves or Midway has discontinued the following 450 Bushmaster items.

450 BM Barrels
Hornady 450 BM ammo
5rd 450BM magazines
10rd 450BM magazines
16 and 20" uppers are showing "unavailable - limited production" as well as Remington ammo.

Anyone have any insight on this?

-Well, since I've been playing with the 450 bushmaster (about a year and a half), I haven't seen Midway sell just barrels.
-It looks like they dropped (or hornady did) the original hornady ammo for the black. AFAIK, they are the same thing.
-They currently have 5rd mags in stock, and they haven't offered 10rd mags for a while.
-The uppers and Remington ammo seem to be seasonal, usually show up around fall, from what I remember.

Just looked on MidwayUSA website:

I believe as Bmt85 said, that the Remington ammo is a seasonal item and will be available later this summer. I don't believe they have had any BM upper in stock in over a year. I am on the list for notification when they come in and I have not heard anything in at least a year.
The "Black Box" Hornady ammo is exactly the same as previous Hornady ammo. As explained to me by a Hornady representative it is a marketing ploy.
