    $16k and RESERVE NOT MET?!?!? That's insane. I've overpaid for a gun before, but not by $13k (msrp $3k on bushmaster's website).

    For anyone who wants one, no need to pay that. The ACR's will start shipping today.

    I would imagine, within the next couple days you will start to see many other auctions on G.B., but at much more realistic prices, with more than one person bidding.

    Seem like nice rifles, anyone here going to get one?

    "Multi-caliber bolt carrier assembly quickly and easily changes from 223/5.56mm NATO to 6.8mm Rem SPC"

    Comes in both 1-in-9 or 1-in-7 twists.

    The ACR, Advanced Combat Rifle, is a Gas Piston, state of the art rifle that allows for tooless changing of the Barrel and bolt to change the caliber to 7.62X39MM, 7.62X51MM and later 5.45 and 6.8 Rem. 1 in 9 twist now, soon to be offered in 1 in 7.

    I heard they started shipping today. So, I guess we are about to find out.

    anyone....

    Where did you find that info, what I quoted was from Bushmaster and I found nothing about 7.62X39/51 just 5.56 and 6.8. I'm surprised to here the action is long enough for 308.

    That is what they told me at the SHOT show booth.

    There is two of them up on Gun Broker already. Sounds like, they did start shipping this week.

    I'm not saying that the above is correct, but, the 7.62X39 is not "the 308" or 7.62X51( NATO). It is the russian 7.62, shorter than the 7.62 NATO.

    If you note I typed 7.62X39/51 referring to the multi caliber option ACR for both 7.62X39mm Russian and 7.62X51mm NATO which is virtually identical to 308. I lumped them together because they would be lumped together in the same multi caliber gun due to similar case diameter so they will feed. Same as Bushmaster grouped 5.56mm NATO (which is 223) and 6.8mm Rem SPC together in the same platform due to their similar case diameter, just swap the barrel to change back and forth.

    I am still surprised to hear the ACR action is long enough for 7.62X51 (308) and skeptical that it actually is. If it is that is great news because it opens up tons of great options based off the 308 for this platform.

    Not to muddy the waters any further. But, did anyone notice that BM re introduced an AR10 in .308? They made one years ago and then canceled it. They released the new version in January.

    BM is back in the .308 business, like many other companies right now.

    Do not be surprised if they come out with a .308 ACR.

    Yeah, I was reading and typing too fast. I agree it probobly won't be long enough for 7.62X51, most likey only in 7.62X39.

    The action length is irrelevant because you can't fit 7.62x51 through a 5.56x45 magazine well. The difference in OAL is .49"

    I'm assuming if you had interchangeable magwells, like the ones MGI makes, and a different upper receiver it would be possible. Like you said a .308 capable acr would have some great options. .338 fed, .358 win, .300 wsm, .338 wsm, and even .450 marlin will fit through an AR10 magwell and action length.

    Default .308 acr

    From what I understand there will be a different model to fit the .308 and similar length calibers introduced later in the year?
