Default Bushmaster ACR do you have one?

I have been thinking about getting a ACR and selling my AR and AK since you can change out the barrel but does anyone have one and if so how do you like it?

I can change the barrel on my ar15's pretty easy. Ak its pretty hard to do but there isnt much reason to.

With an ar15 you can do it by pushing the two reciever pins out remove the upper receiver from the lower receiver put the new upper receiver on the lower push the two pins in good to go.

If you want to keep the same upper and replace a shot out barrel (10,000-70,000 rounds depending on barrel metal) takes about ten minutes and a barrel wrench.

Unless your running a full auto belt fed there isnt much reason to swap barrels quickly on an individual rifle

2 rifles are always better than one...

You can still shoot if one breaks ...
You can take a buddy shooting ..

Plus one for each hand

Another thing, you can buy two excellent ARs for the cost of the equivocally awesome ACR.

This is about 300 bucks cheaper, and in my opinion, a better value if you have to have something other than an AR.
