If you haven’t heard about the Bushmaster ACR (Adaptive Combat Rifle) transition over to the Remington ACR, we implore you to catch up with this excellent post from our friends at Soldier Systems.

In addition to a few killer photos, Drake Clark from Magpul has posted a few noteworthy updates recently at AR15.com.

Clark ensures that everything is moving along well and they’re working had to ensure the ACR is everything the public expects, and that the ACR continues to be a front-burner project.

He also noted to keep in mind, that recently some other small arms have needed an 8-year development time table, and that when the ACR is ready to move forward Remington and Bushmaster will be too.

A lot of mistrust of Bushmaster. Eithor there was a business change, or Magpull heard the cu$tomers and decided for a change.

Freddie Blish (Aimpoint's director of MIL sales) reports back from the '09 NDIA Small Arms Symposium that Remington will be producing the ACR for mil/LEO sales in 5.56, 6.5, and 6.8. Obviously, all these are just a quick barrel/bolt swap to change calibers.

No word from LtCol Blish on non-LEO civilian sales.

The ACR will be made in Ilion, NY.

off topic, but I think the camo worn in the pics is very cool. I have tracked Camouflage for several years. (And have been consistantly amazed at the poor designs developed in America.) What is the name of the camo pattern in the pic, and where can I find out more about it, or get some?

I spoke with Drake last week and when I asked about the ACR project he said that it is moving along well.

I still think the name Magpul gave it was better. Masada. Just sounds pretty cool.

There's a lot of history behind the word Masada, look into it if you have some time. Also the Massoud, their latest .308 rifle named after Ahmad Shah Massoud. The history behind their names a nice touch.

We’ve just restocked the ITS Skeletonized Bottle Holder in Black but it’s also available in Coyote and MultiCam too! This lightweight and minimalist design can hold anything from a plastic water bottle to a Jetboil and is handmade in the USA with American materials and labor. Using the included MOLLE/PALS attachment system, it can be mounted virtually anywhere, including most belt sizes with a simple configuration of the mounting strap.
