I'd pass on both and get a DI AR.

Here she is!
It has one of the Original Armson OEG Sights. I also have a Scope adapter and Rifle Scope for it.

The other issue is confidence in the Bushmaster product since they have had so many quality control issues and problems throughout the years with their weapons. Some very recently. I guess with that said knowing a little about the history I have mentioned, when it came to spending in the area of $2000.00 on a Bushmaster product I would look into something else with a better track record. I am not saying there are not those who have had great luck with their Bushmaster which I am sure some have. But once a manufacturer gets to be known for issues it would be hard for me as it is others to spend hard earned money on one! Only some thoughts!
Hopefully some of the very knowledgeable people here on the Forum can contribute more to their experience and exposure to the ACR! At least those with enough knowledge and experience with the weapon system and have fired them enough to prover reliability and not just a mag or two.

Well said, Sniper03!
The biggest issue with assembling an AR isn't so much getting the parts together right - it's getting the right parts together.
