I don't see the point in beating a dead horse. I canceled my pre-order and decided to forget the ACR and move on. With some of the new products coming out for AR's, hell, I might even give up on all of these wonder rifles all together now.
Sadly, I think RRA's new side charging, buffer tubeless, gas piston upper is the most exciting thing I've seen yet. No offense to RRA, but I think it's bad when they're the only people who can even half ass'edly deliver what it is that people want.
And I don't see why you're ragging on Magpul.
Obviously they had/have nothing to do with the ACR program at all other than making the plastic. They made a business deal and got the money they were promised, so even if they did care that Bushmaster pissed all over everyone they can't do shit about it anyways. Hell, I give it two years before Magpul doesn't make any of the ACR's parts anyways.
If anything, Magpul deserves sympathy for either making a huge mistake that hopefully they learn from, or for getting the hot beef injection from Cerberus.
