ACR Enhanced

The Adaptive Combat Rifle has an interesting development history that can be confusing to some people. Originally designed by Magpul and labeled as the Masada, it was later sold to Bushmaster for production and sales as the ACR. Remington also produces the ACR but for military and LEO customers. Most ACR’s on the market are the Enhanced model which has a different stock and railed handguard. (GRH)
