Bushmaster presents the ACR

The count-down clock on Bushmaster’s website tells me that there’s just over 2 1/2 hours to go until the official launch of the Bushmaster ACR(tm) (Adaptive Combat Rifle).

As I’m sure most of you know by now, the ACR is the result of unprecedented (at least in my life-time)  cooperation between 3 companies – Magpul, Bushmaster and Remington – to produce one of the most truly innovative and adaptive rifles ever seen.
