Off The Break once again sets the standard with the Vert Frame available now for the Bushmaster. The combination of vert frame ergonomics, and ultralight reverse polarity magnetic trigger are deadly. Specific to the Bushmaster Vert Frame is the replacment of the stock trigger pins for easier to use screws which allow easy removal. Most everyone who uses the vert frame notices more confidence in there snap shooting, faster strings while running and overall a tighter profile.
The Off The Break Bushmaster Vert Frame is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.
The trigger is plastic, Way overpriced, Poor machining.
It is defenitely better than the stock frame, as far as comfort goes but not what its cracked up to be.The plastic trigger doesnt make for a very smooth feel. I feel the trigger switch adjustment screw is too high, which makes it more difficult to register trigger pulls from the top of the trigger.I had to oil up the bolts and back them in and out to get them to screw in nicely, it felt as if they were crossthreaded at first. The 2 rear tray screws were hitting the frame when installing,which ended up in some minor filing.But it did go on.
I would have put money into my gun elsewhere if i would have been able to test this.

-Fairly easy installation
-Easy to walk
-May need modification to fit (mostly to the screws)
First off, installation. The front frame screw doesnt fit, going to need to grind it down. It's a little wider so the tray screws are kinda hard to get in, but no biggie. Microswitch installation was a breeze, just put the screws in.
I love the feel of it. It puts my wrist at the perfect angle. Looks good too. Its about 3/4" taller than normal bushy frame.
Plastic trigger. I think for the price tag on this frame, it should be metal, but I kinda like the plastic. Its light, but its not cheap plastic. It bendable. but only on the bottom part and only if you push.
Extremely easy to walk, super fast.
The grips are hard, which made putting them on a pain. I like the OTB logo on them though. If you want sticky grips, I'm pretty sure IR3 grips will fit on it.
All in all, I think this is a great frame. Worth all the hype and long wait? Maybe not. But if you are looking to upgrade your frame, and have the money, I think you will be happy. But its all personal preferance. Do you like vertical frames?
