There are many companies that have threads here on ARFCOM and on other forums that are well respected and interact on a regular basis. Whatever has happened with the ACR, it has completely left much of their intended customer base with some hard feelings. It was over-hyped and severely under-delivered. And what has been said by Bushmaster has been pretty much unapologetic and possibly somewhat offensive.
I'm a huge fan of Magpul products and will continue to be. But as someone has posted earlier they are probably forced to remain "mum" contractually regardless. Bushmaster really screwed the pooch on this one. I could really care less if they ever respond to threads around here or anywhere else. They have aptly demonstrated how they feel about there customers.
Cottage industries like Magpul, Spikes, BCM, LaRue and others will continue to be go-to companies because they care about their customer service and don't try and sell a line of BS above anything else. Tho I do think Magpul has suffered a blow on this deal and probably wishes they had done things differently. Just my opinion, as worthless as it may be.
