Sorry I'm not savvy enough to attach a photo to this post, but I saw a couple in the "Any updates from shotshow" thread that were quite appealing. One is all black, and the other is black with a desert tan upper and forend. I'm not too crazy about ARs for the same reason I'm not too cazy about dragon tattoos - EVERYBODY HAS ONE!!! Hence my being on an ACR forum. However, I really like the way Remy took the standard issue 1985 M4 and put a thick shiny coat of 2010 on it. Add this to the ACRs price point and I may just be in the market for an AR! Is this rifle slated for civilian sales and if so, what kind of numbers are we looking at?

No, that's not it. In your Shotshow thread, ACRFan posted a reply including several videos and pics. After the six videos, the first two pics are of the rifle I'm wondering about. It's more of a combat rifle than a hunting rifle. It looks badass.

The Remington Gas Piston Carbine (GPC) was on display for the first time at the Shot Show 2010. The upper does not use a GP system like any other AR-15 type GP system. The rumor is that the piston system is based heavily on or at least in part on the ACR gas piston system.

This upper/rifle is being developed and most likely offered by Remington's Military division. It is apparently Remington's attempt to compete in the Military M4 upgrade competition. There is certainly a lot of competition in that market. I think it will all come down to price in the end. Or at least the best value for the money. However, I doubt Remington will make the uppers affordable, considering their pricing of the ACR. :'(

There is some good news for us non-DoD guys and gals. Remington plans on selling a semi-automatic version of this rifle to civilians, either as complete rifles or just uppers. However, you shouldn't expect to see them released before the 2nd quarter of 2011. At the speed at which they are bringing the ACR to market, whatever you do, do not hold your breath for 2Q2011. :))
