The ACR: The archetypical product of modern-era Remington. Originally designed by Magpul as a the Masada, the patterns and production rights were bought by the Cerberus Group (Remington's Parent company) and with a couple of minor adjustments, the ACR was pushed to market by Remington and it's pedestrian counterpart- Bushmaster. The original intent for the ACR a rifle designed with barrel and caliber modularity in mind ( Adaptive Combat Rifle ), but after an initial flurry immediately after it's release, little seems to have been made of that intent. By all accounts the ACR line was dead in the water for basically 10 years, until very recently, when Remington showcased some long needed love at ShotShow 2017.
The ACR-E contains some weightsaving measures around the Trunnion and locking Collar, as well as a standardised tri-rail foregrip and shortened gas system.
The pack contains the ACR-E in two caliber flavours- Standard 5.56x45mm NATO and 6.8x43mm Remington SPC (a caliber the rifle Remington promised availability of but as of yet still hasn't made available)
Those calibers are available in 4 barrel lengths (with respective accuracy offset) - 10.5" SBR, 14.5" Mil Carbine, 16.5" Civ Carbine, 20" Full Rifle/DMR.
All of those variations are ALSO available in the two Factory-standard colours and an additional Tanoa-Compatible colour
(3 Special versions also included)
Total combinations - 27.
6.8mm SPC Versions are 1-in-7" twist
5.56mm NATO Verstions are 1-in-9"
