Seriously, you could build one heck of a tack driver for that kind of $$.

then again, there are those out there who just have to have the latest designer name brand on their toys.
The first article on the ACR came out before Bushmaster got involved. The rifle was designed by MagPul Industries and the quick change barrel/caliber conversion ability is what caught my eye. I don't need the newest gadgets, "favorite handguns are old full sized 1911s", but I do appreciate innovative designs.

I've followed it since Magpul put it out, and it's bigger brother now, the Massoud. As for quick change barrel/caliber conversions, that's been around for a while, but none have really caught on to stay. Robinson Armament's XCR is capable of the same thing, and was in the running as a replacement for the M4, along side the HK's, FN's, etc.

I wasn't putting you down or anything like that for being interested in the latest inovations in firearms. Not at all, because I too like to keep up with what is new and BETTER. All I was saying is, at that price point, I can wait until they get the bugs out and the price down. I have pieces to cover just about every caliber I need, from .17 to .50, so no real need for anything right now that is convertible. Dedicated platforms fit all my needs

But hey, if they ever build a better 'hammer', I'm sure I'll be in line for one. They've been trying to improve it for over 40 years, and still going.

Thanks for the info on the XCR, I'll look into it. And no worries, I didn't take it as a put down. I generally believe in the concept that "A jack of all trades is a master of none" and think that applies to most convertible gun designs over the years but eventually someone going to get it right...right?

Default How's the Recoil?

These new rifles should be interesting to hear reports in the next year.
I'm curious about the new op rod craze on AR's. I was 11B for 6 years so I certainly get the whole "ease of cleaning effect" you get when you go from gas impingement to op rod but when Stoner designed gas impingement it was state of the art and it certainly achieved the goal a rifle that is totally controllable in full auto mode. My AK and my M1A are both op rod, both great guns, but the recoil makes follow up shots about 1/10 as fast as I get with my good old gas AR.
Now I'd be happy to loose the hours of carbon scraping you get to enjoy with gas impingement but not if means my AR's going to handle like my AK does.

So...Hows the recoil on the op rod AR?

Here's a link to Bushmaster website highlighting the ACR. Although, the views loaded slow the music was pretty good. Just click caliber change, etc, etc.

I see there also adding a .308 to their line of rifles.

for $2500+ your smokin crack. you can build a stable of ar's that will out shoot that thing and look better doing it.

Or you can build a decent bolt gun and put a nice scope on it for that price and end up with a gun that will split the hairs on a gnats ares at 100 yards.
