    Got me an ACR!

    I know these weren’t too popular but I’ve always liked them for some strange reason. Lately it seems like they’ve been selling better now that a pistol configuration is available. Bought it with a Geissele Super ACR trigger which was sweet. I’ve been creeping on them since they came out and someone locally literally gave it to me and now I have my eye on a Templar 300blk kit once they’re available. For now it sports an Elcan and had a Knights MAAM pin/welded after bringing the barrel down a bit.

    This is one of the only "could have been" rifles out there, if a reputable company had picked it up.

    I agree. Its one of the only rifles that popped up in that era that really had potential. Its really too bad what happened to it.

    This is next on my acquisition list.

    Despite their problems I just like them and really regret selling my old one.
    Tell my tale to those who ask. Tell it truly; the ill deeds along with the good, and let me be judged accordingly.

    How does the recoil impulse compare to other 5.56 rifles? Also is the bolt lock release stiff or hard to actuate?

    Looks fantastic
    it seems to cause some people real emotional anguish not to insist, at every opportunity, no matter how irrelevant to the discussion, that you....

    I got one too a while back. Oddly enough, I have yet to get around to firing it.


    I'm trying to figure out the logic of the step up in the barrel diameter towards the muzzle.

    Cool rifle man! I've wanted one since I saw pictures of the Masada in a magazine article by Patrick Sweeney. The control layout seems really, really nice. Pretty much ideal. The tool less barrel change and the looks are just plain sexy.

    I have a dream that someday I'll build a Masada clone out of one with a pinned 14.5" pencil barrel and find a way to get the weight down to what was originally advertised. I wonder: does the added weight come entirely from the carrier and barrel profile, or are there other changes from the Masada? I nerd out on those kinds of details for some reason.

    I think the assumption at the time was that Bushmaster, in it's desire to cut all the corners, simply used what it already had lying around - namely non-chrome lined, 1/9 twist 16" M4 style barrels.
