    Where are the Tan ACRs?

    I've been waiting for ACR in coyote tan, and my patient is running out. I emailed Bushmaster about it but got no reply. Anyone know the ETA or are the coyote tan ACRs got discontinued?

    Thanks but I want a new model with 1 in 7 twist rate. I found a new one on gunbroker but it is a couple hundreds more than a new black ACR.

    Scarcity produces demand and thereby additional cost. I'd imagine with a little patience, they'll even out.

    I'm piecing together a tan one from Dana. They probably don't make as much... Maybe because black sells better?

    Does Magpul still make the original coyote brown? They stopped all the other colors when they moved from Colorado IIRC. Maybe they'll do Medium Coyote Tan?

    Magpul NEVER sold any of their products in coyote brown; coyote brown is NOT FDE or medium coyote tan. And their discontinuing the traditional colors was only for Pmags, and had nothing to do with their move from Colorado. The only things Magpul made in coyote brown were OEM ACR parts for Bushmaster; the stocks, basic handguard, lower receiver, gen 1 and 2 MBUS sights, and gen M2 Bushmaster branded Pmags. All of these products were never sold commercially by Magpul, they were only supplied to Bushmaster.

    That being said, the MCT Pmags are so close to coyote brown that they're good enough.

    I’m thinking they only do more black versus coyote because it’s easier to annodize a bunch of receivers versus cerakoting them. They also have to get the specific coyote parts made up from Magpul still whereas the black plastic is the same across the board.

    Yes, I know they never sold direct (wished they would have done MVGs, etc) and made it OEM for BM. The mags have been sold out for awhile and wouldn't surprise me if BM finally ran out of parts for Coyote Brown.

    I got a half dozen MCT windowed Pmags. It's not close enough for me (though better than FDE), at least for the ACR, so will be sticking with my black and coyote brown PMAGS on my ACR.
