    New ACR owner from Georgia.

    So, I’m a new ACR owner. Kinda “lucked” into the purchase of a new in case, never fired ACR from around 2012 that was manufactured in Ilion, NY. I’ve had ARs over the years so I feel kinda familiar with the platform just not sure If I like it or not. Not sure if I’m gonna keep it or not. What to do?

    FYI... it’s a Bushmaster ACR Enhanced 5.56\.223 in black.

    I guess it depends on what you find iffy about the ACR.

    Since it's the Enhanced, I'll go out on a limb and say that the weight is an issue. If that's the case then you should look at a lighter handguard first, and looking at GunBroker you'd find better deals here. Other weight savings would require a solid commitment to the rifle.

    You can also replace the trigger with most any Geissele AR-15 trigger. The only caveat is that you'll have to keep the ACR hammer spring since that is part of the safety selector mechanism.

    I still think the AR is tops in a 5.56mm rifle, but the ACR is a very good alternative and I do like the ACR better than any of the piston driven ARs. The best thing you can do to your ACR are some of the lightening modifications developed for the barrel/trunnion assemblies and replacement of the safety lever if you have the original old style polymer assembly.

    Are you selling your ACR?
