    I'd go with a surplus M14 before I'd go with a ACR or SCAR. When the gun's empty,it has many field expedient uses..

    I looked at the ACR, I think I'll wait until the 1:7 barrel (556), 18' 6.5 Grendel Barrel, and a price drop. As an eight year army vet, and having several deployments under my belt, I think it's a great rifle that needs just a little tweaking for perfection. For me, 6.5mm and a quick change barrel are the main points I'm interested in; 5.56 is fairly common and surplus is still available, but 6.5 has a vastly flatter trajectory and more energy than 5.56.
    The 1:7 issue is the 62gr and up wont stabilize in 1:9 barrels.
