The ACR is the later stage of development of the ACR i think, When magpul gave the designs to Bushmaster and Remington, they changed a few things and changed the name from masada, something like that anyway.

In other news, my VSR arrived :) Sorry about the photos, only had my phone on me and it was a bit dark in the garage.

@Nick - FPSRussia's next video is going to be about the ACR, which as far as I'm aware is the same as a Masada, no?

 

Yea kinda what Marcus said, Magpul sold it to Bushmaster and they changed the name to Adaptive Combat Rifle (ACR) and there is the odd little change (most notable using the RIS handguard more then the magpul one) however, it is the same basic rifle and all the origional Mgapul ideas are still in there (i.e abidextrous controls, quick change barrel, massive adaptiveness)

oh and when you hear people call it the Remington ACR basically Bushmaster told its sister company, Remington, to make the military ones now while Bushmaster made the civilian ones. The ACR design is still technically Bushmasters as Remington didn't change anything, however, it is still a Magpul rifle.

 

EDIT: Marcus, I'm expecting you to re-do the camo with A-TACS

Haha I might end up doing it in FG, at the moment im still deciding as to what I'm going to do externally if im honest, im not going to Ghillie wrap it or anything, I want to keep the looks of the rifle pretty standardish-might be tempted by a fluted bull barrel though :D

R.e. The RS ACR (just for those interested in it) you'll fairly rarely see them on account of the fact that Remington/Bushmaster took the Magpul shell and filled it with shite components. The barrels in particular use a twist ratio in the rifling that is well known for giving w**k range/accuracy and they're not chrome lined as any decent barrel should be, which leads to excessive wear and unusually high corrosion. Combine the poor construction quality with a ridiculously high retail price (purely because of all the hype) and you've got one unattractive firearm.

do you know if you can still buy RS Masadas made by Magpul? or get Bushmaster ACRs to magpul specs?

Some really nice rifles and snipers on here, cant belive the amount of work some people put into their rifles, really impressive.

 

Here's my new Tokyo Marui Scar Heavy in Tan, its an Electric blow back rifle, sounds and feels the nuts! If added a 3x magnifier, holo sight, peq15, a magpul vertical foregrip, black magpul ris rail covers. The bipod is on or off dependant on what sight I'm at.

 

So far i've only upgraded the spring as it was only firing at 270fps, now ive got a m100 spring its firing around the 350fps mark. Looking at replacing the inner barrel in the next few months, apart from that the inernals are pretty good. Love it :)

Well constant phone calls to Firesupport, constantly nagging and putting my name down 100 times on the call back list helped me out. I know they only had 5, apart from that I never saw anyone selling them in the uk! Kinda lucky and persistent.

Apart from a very small number of the first prototypes, Magpul never actually produced the Masada/ACR. Bushy/Rem bought the rights to the design once it was finalised and they're the only ones who ever mass produced it.

 

 

Here's my new Tokyo Marui Scar Heavy in Tan,

 

Top shelf taste you have sir. Money well spent.

 

I'd wager you'll find yourself dropping one or two of those accessories once you've played a game or two because I did the exact same thing for a while, but a great choice of rifle none-the-less.

Hang on, wasn't that one of the issues the original M16 had?

So Bushmaster completely ignored the development hell of the M16? Genius :rolleyes:

 

Also -

I got my second P229 in April - but due to my revision for my exams, I forgot to post this here (I did post it elsewhere).

I found a new way of polishing the metal. New favourite pistol :D

Don't store my gun at home so can't snap some decent shots. To give you an idea though;

KWA SR10 with silencer, 509mm Barrel, 3-9x Sniper scope and bipod. Bipod is needed as the range is... Good to say the least...

Fancied a pop at a DMr, having a tri-shotgun and a P90 as my usual set up, naturally I had to snap up a stock JLS FN2000 when it appeared, (which has an extended inner barrel). It came with the worlds thinnest pistol silencer and didn't look right, so took the P90 civillians barrel and transferred it onto the FN2000, bipods temp till I get a spring folding one, scope needs mounts but is mildot. Loving the accuracy with the bullup and extended barrel!

It justs needs a new stock pad, but I may make a custom one from material to contain an extra mag pouch. I'm not all too fussed about everything being real steel, so long as it's practical and useful.
