    First ACR!! But should I keep it?

    Hey guys finally was able to grab a Coyote Windham ACR with Bushy marked pmags. Has some slight use marks but overall pretty good. I'm just curious though if I should keep it due to lack of spare parts etc. Especially now that Bushmaster is no more

    LOL, saw your post on FB this morning. I say keep it. Like the other guys said, just don't feed it .300 Black Out.

    .300 BO is a shortened 5.56 case necked up to use 7.62 bullets; it is designed to require only an upper/barrel (depending on the rifle design) swap to use. Same magazines, same bolt head, etc... Because of the overall length and the ogive of the bullet, it can still chamber in a 5.56 chamber. Firing it will cause an overpressure and basically extrude the bullet as far as it can through the barrel before the bolt breaks-which it will. There was a dude on the FB page who did it and it destroyed his ACR; the barrel didn't burst but the bolt split and couldn't be removed from the chamber and the receiver was bulged. IIRC Remington sold him a new rifle at reduced cost or something

    So dude tried to fire a .300blk through his 5.56, blew up his rifle and got a discount on a replacement? I’m not sure it’s a good idea to help this guy get another weapon into his hands...

    Yeah agreed. That’s like buying a kid a Camaro and then giving him another after he drunkenly wraps it around a tree

    Keep it. Bushmaster/Remington maybe a cluster-fuck but that is normal; you'll get used to it. The biggest thing is I'd say to get is the new charging handle tray if you don't have it already. I've heard the older style charging handle tray starts to have issues once you get up into the higher round count. Other than that you'll be fine; the ACR is not going die anytime soon.
