Bushmaster posted 15 new accessories for the ACR. This is an ACRForum.com scoop. We had it here first.

"A selection of ACR Accessories are posted for sale on Bushmaster’s website. More are coming in the next couple of weeks, including barrels."

Check them out at: http://www.bushmaster.com/products.asp?cat=11

Here is a pic of one of the hottest items (more to follow):

Not that I have heard. There is actually some discussion that the folding stock may be 6 - 8 weeks out from delivery. (unconfirmed)

I'm hoping that BFI is just a bit overwelmed as usual and the stuff should start flowing within 10 days, (PRAYING) I have a basic handguard on order thru the website, got the order confirm, but not shipping yet.

Received a call from a bushmaster rep today in regards to a pricing mishap on my order for the recently released stocked. while i had her on the phone i asked what shipping time was looking like she told me they are only shipping a handful out a month at a time and i would be 4-5 weeks for mine that was ordered on 8/14/2010. i also asked about the enhanced handgaurd and she said there is no official release date

Sounds like they are playing the numbers to keep demand high. The parts being mostly polymer and injection molded can be cranked out in amazing quantities in short order. Assembly of the parts is another issue but if worked in assembly line fashion is still quite efficient. My order was a few days after yours so we'll see what shakes loose.

i agree 100% those sneaky sneaky people. If LaRue can have a small assembly line and crank out machined metal i think bushmaster can crank out Polymer. As for the Handguard im just hoping someone will trade me. i'll post here as soon as i get my shipment notice

Sweet!



My basic model ACR is ordered and en route to the dealer and my stock order was placed with BM last week. I'm probably behind a bunch of other folks with respect to the stock order but I'm hoping it won't be too much longer after the rifle gets in.

I guess I got the short end of the stick; I ordered a folding stock on 14 Aug and still haven't received mine. I was told it should "probably"ship by the end of this week. We'll see ::)

Ordered mine on the 19th. Didn't hear anything until I got an e-mail yesterday morning that it shipped. It arrived later yesterday afternoon.

19th for me, arrives today per the tracking info. I ordered coyote though and I'm seeing more coyote ACR's in the distributor lists than black so I'd take it that the black rifles have been a little more popular at the cash register. But, they were also the first ones out too.

ETA: Arrived, everything in order! Now, more mags and a sling... ;D
