Summer? Fall? Next winter?

With Magpul, it comes when it comes. Every time a box shows up from them, I wonder what goodies are in it. They have surprised me a few times... Damn good stuff. I am waiting for an ACS for a project myself (as well as a UBR)...

OK, I have or know what the CTR, UBR, and PRS stocks are, what exactly is the ACS? Pix? What is it's niche? (pronounced Neesh, like some flaming social worker :D )

Ok, go to www.magpul.com

lower right where it says "2008 propaganda". Click on that. The ACS is in the 2008 Catalog.

The closest thing I can equate it to is an E-Mod.

Any more news on the ACS release date? RSR has them listed on their site. I am hoping that is a sign they are due in soon.

Yes you would need an account and a FFL to buy from them.

jmart, I was told over at LF.net that the ACS was not due out for several months. That was from one of the Magpul employees.

No specific release date as for now on the ACS. Things are moving though. Hang in there guys.

Any pictures of this stock available yet? It sounds like just the ticket for a build I'm considering...

Looks nice. That does look like one of the "mock up" versions at the SHOT Show (done in some wimpy plastic to prove the concept). So I would not be surprised if minor change show up in production versions.

Any word on these?

Does anyone know if:

Will the ACS accept the rubber butt pads used on the CTR?

If not, will butt pads be offered?

What's the storage compartment set up for? Will it operate like the MIAD, with variable drop-ins, custom-tailored for different parts, or is it an open compartment?

Is this like a lighter version of the UBR for lighter carbines?

No, it's like a more badass version of the CTR. CTR plus SOPMOD like cheek weld and what's probably better storage.

So if a CTR and a SOPMOD were left in a rifle rack in a dark safe...

I couldn't tell if the cheeckpiece stayed forward like on the UBR.

I need one. Maybe RichFitz will whet our appetites, and appease our impatience with some Magpul Porn, ala the MBUS...Break out some photos, dudes.

Any dealers wanna start a pre-order list? I'd like it in FG.

Im still holding out for the UBR in OD (though I understand why many arent being made as black and FDE are the sellers)

RSR's got us flagged for a black one and a OD one for the shop.

My new rifle is almost done...just waiting for my smith to finish my barrel, and the UBR (running another stock til then) and then a set of 9.0 larue guards and I am done!

Thanks, Stick!

I'm hoping I can snatch one up before they end up like the UBR - Nonexistant.

I wonder if Chad or Grant are going to do pre-orders...

P.S. Your recommendation sold me on the Bobro mount. That thing locks on like Bernie Madoff on someone's life savings.

Thats a fact.

The UBR is MUCH more intensive with its needs in production than the ACS, or at least that is my understanding. The ACS should be much easier to produce, and at a higher volume, which should greatly increase the amount we see available on the market.

I've certainly got no insider knowledge, but it wouldn't surprise me if one of the first places that we saw the ACS break cover was on one of the next Noveske/Magpul LE collaborations ... say, at around the $2,500 to $2,750 price point. Consider it a wild guess, but one that is based upon some rather logical inferences.

Either way, if the ACS turns out half as well as we're expecting, the real question won't be when they enter full production, but rather when are you going to be able to actually find one, as dealers aren't going to be able to keep them in stock for a long, long time.

If I could work my tease a little better, I would have that weapon out "dancing" for tips in seedy sections of the city....

Actually, not to go too far afield, but the AAC SPR mount makes it a bit tough to discern the barrel length on that carbine. I take it this arrangement gives you a flush-to-the-gas-block mount for the can, correct? Nice.

No need to tease on the ACS, we are (or, at least, I am) sold already. ;)
