Happy Friday, my friends. Now that the dust has cleared from the 2010 Show Show, a metric ton of exciting new products is on the horizon-- not least of which is the Remington/Bushmaster/Magpul/Rand Corp/GE/Doritos ACR. Of course, we civilians will see the ACR come labeled as a Bushmaster, and despite the premium price tag announced at Shot Show in Vegas back in January, sales of the ACR will be staggering... I gare-ron-tee it! Remember, there was a lot of R&D that went into the creation of this gun and it took years to come to fruition. There will always be naysayers of any new product, but I think we'll see the Bushmaster ACR answer its critics with solid performance and a strong value add. It's a premium product-- not unlike LWRC, Schmidt und Bender, or Les Baer. It's not for everyone and it's not meant to be. It's an exceptional and exclusive rifle, right folks?!
Here's the skinny: There are two different flavors of the Bushmaster ACR: a Basic and an Enhanced configuration. The Enhanced ACR has an AAC flash hider, folding and six-position telescoping stock, and 2-point push button sling-- in addition to all the standard features. I've got pricing loaded into the system.

According to our Bushmaster distributors, these should start shipping in March. However, dealers realistically can expect to start receiving product in June or July. So, check out the pricing and decide is the ACR is something you'd like sitting in your safe this summer. You can have our website notify you via e-mail when the first shipment arrives. Click the "notify me" link next to the one you want and enter your e-mail address.
That's it, my friends. Keep sending in those Facebook CCW photos. It's a tight race so far and we've got a week to go. Have a good weekend and God bless. -- Evan
