Here's some 411 on the 05 Bushy deal..
The facts for 05 from ICD
Ok here are the facts. The black to yellow pictured in the 05 thread is a proto-type Bushmaster for 2005. Its a tested and working unit. There will be changes made before release early next year. The changes already made from 2004 are as follows, no manifold, upgraded ball detent system (like f/s) 3mm eyes for pds, no tray, clamshell grip with 1 switch even with pds, new milling, new board software. These are the facts because I actually work at ICD. We have not finalized details on the F/S but that is a rough version of one model for 05. Look for a few new versions of the F/S in the coming months.
