It was just one letter, yet it completely changed the meaning of what I wrote. I definitely meant XCR.ACRs aren't even available anymore, no?
EDIT Guessing that's a typo...and you meant XCR.
You're a lucky man. I really, really wanted an ACR when they were the Masada. Was disappointed to see Freedom Group not really bring it to fruition as envisioned by Magpul. I ended up with my first XCR largely b/c of the way the ACR was mismanaged....and looking back now, I'm SO grateful I went this route, though I'd still like to have one....just sucks that they never did the AK mag lower and short bbls were a bitch to procure.It was just one letter, yet it completely changed the meaning of what I wrote. I definitely meant XCR.
I do have a couple of ACR's, but I've never actually shot either. I'm not avoiding shooting them, I just have not had the time. The funny thing is that I literally bought my DMR ACR about five days before Bushmaster announced they were discontinuing them.
Yeah, I've been very interested in a 5.45 AK pistol or XCR build for years.....it's a great round and when it was $114 for 1080 rounds, it was an INCREDIBLY good deal. Just wish I'd bought pallets of the 7N6 ammo when it was available. Fucking government.such a huge lose of a possible unicorn build. I really want to compare the effectiveness of a 7.5" 545 xcr and 7.5" 556 xcr as well as how well it suppressed since it (theoretically) should have less pressure and perform better in a shorter barrel. I understand pressure curves could change that
16" bbls on the stnd length gas bbls? Oh...and do the bolts (Type 2) only work with Type 2 lowers, as I'd assume?FWIW
I've got a 5.45 barrel on order with RA.
I've also got spare barrel/bolts in 5.45 if you really want an XCR in 5.45. All are standard length gas with one 10" mini gas.
