    My initial "thoughts" are that it's pretty new, pretty much unproven and you could spend 1/3 of that cash on upgrading your perfectly good AR into something that would easily compete.

    However, in fairness, I haven't handled the weapon, or even examined it up close. It just seems like an expensive solution to a problem that already has many answers....

    *shrug* Let me know what you think of it if you end up pulling the trigger and getting one. Maybe is the best best thing since sliced bread.... but I kind of doubt it...

    No one has really examined it up close, because it went into the black hole that is Bushmaster. I would expect it right after they release their .308 AR that takes FAL mags...

    yeah i checked out both magpuls and bushmasters version on the internet
    personally i like the look and functionality of the masada
    the bushmaster ACR is i think one too many steps ahead with the whole front charging mechanism and it doesnt look as smooth as the masada
    both are almost identical though...
    gonna try to check it out at the next gun show get a feel for it before i make any decisions on it
