Bushmaster quietly adds 1:7 twist rate to ACR

    One of the criticisms levied at the Bushmaster ACR by the internet gun community was that it was only available with a 1:9 barrel twist. Bushmaster has quietly updated their website and added a 1:7 twist rate barrel as an option alongside the 1:9.

    The 1:7 twist helps stabilize the heavy 75 grain bullets.
