    I suspect you will see production models in this year.

    Instead of playing follow the leader like S&W and Ruger, Remington has gone out of a limb.

    Problem, a lot of those features seem to be add on accessories like those of Magpul. Who is their market, military. That will be a feat replacing the M16! New caliber yes but it seems most branches like the AR-15's modular design and various manufacturers since much is now mil-spec.

    Although the 556 and 6.8 interchangability is novel for that concept rifle.

    While it compete in the Ar-15 market? Nope.:dunno:

    Remington followed the leader too, everyone is getting into the AR15 game now.

    Remington got this from Magpul, they didn't go out on a limb. Magpul designed it, did all the leg work, got the public really excited about it, did lots of testing and R&D and then knowing they were far to small to actually build the thing on a large scale sold it to Bushmaster which is owned by Cerberus who also owns Remington who they transferred it to.

    Just FYI

    This is why it's taking so long to bring the rifle out. They have to make flashy videos with cool CG of their new gun :rofl:

    Very cool.....looks like the piston is gaining speed and I love the folding stock and modular design. Magpul is a great company, Mike.

    ....I've been waiting for more info from Bushmaster on this, and now it's been given to Remington. Hmmmmm....

    I gotta say, that rifle looks freakin' awesome!!! If my re-education develops into a good career this year (HVAC job-searchin' right now) I will get one of those when they're out....if the price is right. It will probably be like the SCAR, expensive to start out, then hopefully getting less expensive as time goes by.

    Waiting with baited breath am I. What a beautiful rifle!!! Add an ACOG TA31F, and you're good to go!!!

    ive handled and shot an ACR.

    while it looks cool, it is still just another magazine fed, semi-auto rifle that shoots 223 in stock form.

    that being said it does offer some neat features, but my AR-15s still work just fine for me YMMV

    FWIW....

    Since this is the Black Rifle Forum, dedicated to the M16/AR15/M4 family of rifles, a certain ammount of "Who cares?", "It's not as good as my M4gery!" and "There's nothing wrong with the DI system." and so on is expected.

    But the truth is that our Military SHOULD move on to a new rifle soon. The operating systems of rifles such as the SCAR, ACR and XCR are the future, just like the M16 was back in the 1950s. Wether purchasing hundreds of thousands of new rifles is financially viable right now is another question, but there are better choices out there.

    I've been lusting for one of these ever since Magpul announced it. Looks like I need to start saving!
