Hopefully 1:11 or 1:12 and NOT the orignal SAAMI chamber.
For the ACR the 6.8mm SPC II will be rifled in a 6 land/groove, 1 in 11" twist rate.
Any word on when 6.8 versions of the ACR will become available?
Would be nice if it came in time for Christmas, but it is awesome the way it is, so I can wait
I bet they'll have some conversions out there by the end of the year if nothing else than just to say they did. How many is another question but you can bet money that by the Shot Show they will be out.

I'd almost put money on there being a 7.62x39 conversion announced then too. Maybe not released at Shot but we'll know the specs. I know folks get sandy v-jayjays talking about bolt hold opens (which BTW is the dumbest sounding term I've heard in awhile. Do you call the charging handle the 'bolt pull back' or the trigger the 'make boom lever'? It's called a bolt catch! :p :)) ) and other silly details but they need to stick with the original Masada concept that uses AK pattern mags.
