Remington ACR

Tuesday, June 2nd, 2009

So you’re scratching your head saying, “Remington ACR?” Like everyone else you thought that Bushmaster had licensed the Masada design from Magpul in January of 2008 and was dragging their feet bringing it to market. This was hardly the case and Bushmaster in conjunction with Magpul has been hard at work to perfect the rifle and improve manufacturability. Along the way, the decision was made to transition the weapon system to Remington for military orders. This decision also provides access to their capacity and experience for design, production and marketing.

The weapon is aptly named as the Adaptive Combat Rifle (ACR). First demonstrated at SHOT 2007 by Magpul Industries as the Masada, the design showcased several innovative features. It can be rapidly changed from 5.56 to 6.5 to 6.8 with the change of barrel, bolt, and magazine. Additionally, the rifle’s configuration can be altered for use as a close quarters weapon, carbine, and use in the designated marksman role.

Both Remington and Bushmaster are but two gun companies owned by Cerberus. Together with Marlin, Harrington & Richardson, New England Firearms, L.C. Smith, Parker, DPMS/Panther Arms, EOTAC, and INTC they form the Freedom Group Family of Companies.
