I have a SCAR I'm doing a transfer on later in the week. After I'm done drooling over it, I'll let you know about it :D

Did you get the scar H or L? The only thing that I Ike about the ACr is the caliber change option. You can't do that with the SCaR right?

Don't know it's not mine, a client purchased one and is having it shipped to me so I can do the transfer I only get an email saying that it's a SCAR and it's coming, but I think there are some SCAR caliber conversion kits.

I think that the SCAR has this also... but for $2700 you can buy an AR15 with several different caliber uppers, it's not like you're going to be carrying multiple barrels around and I would imagine that with each caliber change it would have to be re-zeroed... POI isn't always the same.

yes since its only the barrel and bolt if neccessary being changed any optics or sights need to be re-zeroed. more effective to just buy a regular AR15 and multiple uppers.

and its still a 2700$ bushmaster... for that price range you can get a larue or POF or some other high end high performance AR15 or AR10

Lol.. One last question.. What exactly are the differences better a bushmaster AR-15 and the Remington R-15? Is it just the camo finish or what?

JonM:
What ar 15 would you recommend for 2,500?
if you REALLY just gotta spend that then larue pof bcm colt daniel defense and a slew of others really dpends on what your going to do with it. with that sort of spending limit you might try to land a colt LE901 that shoots 308 and can accept any standard ar15 upper. that one is on my must have list

the name basicly. remington and bushmaster if im not mistaken are both owned by the same conglomerate company. i just cant see spending that much money for a ar15 that has no aftermarket support. but hey if you just want one go for it.

im just lending you my personal opinion and i highly recomend holding one in your hands before you buy one sight unseen. i personally cant stand the ergonomics of both the scar and acr. they feel clumsy to me. everything feels like its a half size too big. the scar for me doesnt shoulder well.

everything that makes the ACR an adaptive combat rifle like the add-on 25mm launcher and military grade thermals etc is not available to the public. so there really is nothing you can "adapt" to the gun yourself.

there are a couple of folks here that have both of those and simply love em. so take my opinion for just what it is an opinion of some guy on the interweb :)

Thank you for you opinion! I will start researching on the AR's! I'm preferring not to spend top dollar. Thanks again!

If I wanted a high end AR, I would go with a Noveske. they have Vltor uppers and are very nice.

OP, glad you came to your senses since the ACR really doesn't make much sense over a quality AR. JonM said it best, it's just "a $2700 Bushmaster".

Picked one up (acr) last year for a little over 1600.00. I like it a lot. Accuracy is good, right now I have an eotech with a magnifier. The range I shoot at is only 100 yards, so I'm not sure of it's performance beyond that. Probably fired about 1500 rounds through it and no problems. Looked at a scar, post purchase so I might be a tad biased. Didn't really care for the feel, it is lighter though. In retrospect I should of opted for an M1a, I like 308/7.62. Can't say I'd shell out 2700.00 for any plastic gun, acr included.
