It is presumably named after Ahmad Shah Massoud aka. Lion of Panjshir who was a pro-western Afghan who fought the Soviets. He was assassinated by suspected al-Qaeda agents two days before 9/11.

Don’t expect to see this rifle at your local gun dealer anytime soon, if ever.

    The Massoud has been around since just after Magpul revealed the Masada. This just seems to be an updated version that reflects the current version of the ACR.

    I think the biggest uproar is going to be about the new 7.62 PMAG’s.

    Name is much less tacky. Wish they had named the whole line Massoud.

    Long life Ahmad Shah Masoud THE HERO

  • Sameera

    اکنون نام مسعود از مرز های سرزمینش تا دور های دور رفته است. در امریکا سمفونی برایش می سازند، در امریکای لاتین کتابی به نامش می نگارند، در آلمان و فرانسه رمانهایی به نامش می آفرینند، در روسیه دشمنانش به ستایشش می پردازند، در هند فیلمی به نامش می سازند ، در ایران و تاجیکستان نخبه ترین شاعران شعر هایی برایش می سرایند و در سراسر جهان مردم همه ساله یادش را با برگزاری محافل گرامی می دارند. مسعود دیگر شناسنامهء سرزمینی است که سال ها در آتش بیدادِ خود و بیگانه سوخته است.
    نامش همیشه بلند باد.

    Again we are all proud of a historical genius Hero who fought against Soviet Union and Pakistanis rebels (Taliban) Massoud was some who saved his country his people life and future from terrorist and Al Qaida, If Massoud didn’t defended Afghanistan there wasn’t a free country or democracy, at end Massoud is someone who sacrificed his life for his people and for his believes and his country. We are all thankful of Great Massoud.

  • wahid yousufi

    we love him
    masoud is a great hero
    we really love him
    we are afghans

  • abdulkhabeer osmani

    exactly he( Massoud) was man of action, and he spent half of his lovable life in resistance and defiance only for sake of obtaining social independence and living in protected compound/ entourage to be safe and aloof from foreign encroachments. he always desired and wanted free Afghanistan with full of social freedom, he devoted and sacrificed himself in such ways which he wanted, Massoud was not belong to a single tribe or caste rather he was an afghan and ever he wished to establish social, economic and political stability….
    so, i am really proud of him and i continue his ways to fulfill his ideals and what he wanted to be done, which unfortunately our coward and timid foes didn’t let him acquire his ideals and finally martyred him very cowardly,
    Long Live Afghanistan……….
    Land of Lions and Champions………..
    God bless him with all martyrs …

    من به این باورهستم که بسیاری ازکسانی که امروز ودیروز زندگی می کنند در باره شخصیت مسعود دچار مشکل نا آگاهی از رویدادها وحوادث چنددهه می باشند ونه می توانند عادلانه قضاوت کنند. امانسل های بعدی وگذشت زمان مسعود را به هم میهنان بحران زده اش خواهدشناساند که مسعود کی بود وبرای چی مبارزه می کرد؟
    در افغانستان قضاوت ها در باره کارنامه های نظامی وسیاسی وی براساس داوری های قومی وتباری وزبانی وازهمه مهمتر تنگ نظرانه است. اما قضاوت ها درمورد مسعود در سطح بین المللی واقعا قابل تامل ودر خورستایش است.

    Ahmad Shah Massoud (September 1953 September 9, 2001) was a Polytechnic engineering student turned military leader who played a leading role in driving the Soviet army out of Afghanistan, earning him the nickname Lion of Panjshir. Massoud was a moderate of the anti-Soviet resistance leaders Following the collapse of the Afghan government and the rise of the Taliban in 1996, Massoud returned to the role of an armed opposition leader, serving as the military commander of the United Front (known previously as the Northern Alliance). On September 9, 2001, two days before the September 11 attacks in the United States, Massoud was assassinated in Takhar Province of Afghanistan by suspected Al-Qaeda agents. The following year, he was named “National Hero” by the order of Afghan President Hamid Karzai. The date of his death, September 9, is observed as a national holiday in Afghanistan, known as “Massoud Day.” The year following his assassination, in 2002, Massoud was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize.

  • Kurush

    Masood was an icon of destruction and devastation for Afghanistan. He destroyed and rocked the kabul city to rubbles. So it is not surprise to me by any standards that they have named a weapon of destruction by his name!!!!!Dear brothers, there is nothing to be proud of this, it is a moment of EXTREME SHAME FOR ALL OF US that other nations are naming their weapons of mass destruction by the names of our WAR CRIMINALS!!!!! This, indeed, is a moment of EXTREME INSULT for all of us and for Afghanistan in particular. HOW ON EARTH COULD YOU GUYS BE PROUD OF SUCH A SHAMEFUL ACT?????????
    YOU GUYS DESPERATELY NEED TO WAKE UP???

  • Ahmad

    Mr Kurush . . . you are one more crazy and slave of ISI pashtoon, shame on you idiots. We are proud of Massoud because he defeated first Comunism, then pashtonism. Death with your panjabi masters and ISI. Massoud is well appreciated worldwide for his services in fighting against two cancers ( communism and pashton terrorism) and broke thier back bone.

  • Mohammad Ali Lashkari

    مسعود پدیده تکرار نا شدنی است

  • qasem

    it is my pleasure to hear that a rifle is made by name of The great masoud and hope his activities and sacrifice learn other heros in the world that a good name will never disappear.
    thanks for builder of this gun and thanks for whome chose this name

  • Jamshed Aryan

    I don’t think Massoud was a pro-Westerner. He was in favor a free and independent Afghanistan. Obviously like everyone else he did accept help from the Western powers. His intentions weren’t to protect West but Afghan interests in the region.

  • Panjshiri

    I am surprised a weapon is named Masoud because he was a local warlord in a district in north Afghanistan and a traitor. He was very good in killing innocent people and distroying bridges.
