I’m not against em and I don’t think anyone here is. I had a buddy with one back in 2011 when I first got my ACR and it operates very similar to the ACR like ya said. I thought long and hard about dropping my ACR for that SIG Virtus but decided to keep what I have. Your question about “being so beholden to Bushmaster” is slightly odd because we can’t use XCR parts on ACR so it’s not really “to the rescue”; more it’s another platform people can buy into if they want. Along those same lines, if ya want people to jump ship to the XCR, that’s fine too but you’re gonna need to make an XCR Forum. We can’t change this one haha.
