This graph shows the price (MSRP) of 5.56mm rifles that were launched over the past year (and the HK556 which has not yet been launched). Looking at this chart, it seems unlikely that the ACR would have ever been launched at under $2000.

    Why buy so expensive? All of these military rifles are the same. Its just the quality of certain major mechanical parts that separate them (bolt, gas system ect.) I bought my armalite M-15 for $985 new from a dealer. Its never gave me a problem. These guns are all the same at heart. The cheaper brands dont have that zazzy bad az look to them right out the box but all you have to do is spend a little money to dress them up.
