  1. Do tell, Rutgers95! Happy to get tips & offers via PM/email…
  2. Yeah didn’t think the ammo part thru particularly well but we’ll make it work!
  3. Spoke to the seller and he is committed to an FTF sale, so the PTR is still available for now…it’s a good deal for sure!
  4. This rifle was hand built by the world famous gunsmiths at Griffin and Howe. G&H calls this model the Long Range Precision rifle on its website, specs are as follows: -Defiance Machine Rebel action -Accurate Mag Sport-Tact chassis -Proof Research 16" carbon fiber heavy contour barrel with brake -Trigger Tech trigger -Nightforce SHV 3-10x42 MOAR scope in a GDI P-ROM L quick-detach mount. -Ceracoat FDE Rig comes with 3 new Accurate Mag magazines (2x 5rds, 1x 10 rds) and a new Altas bipod.Rifle and scope are unfired, brand new. Got in a trade (new from G&H) and have decided shooting boltguns isn't for me right now. Asking $4500. If you bought this exact setup direct from them it would run you well over $6k. I WILL NOT PART OUT or respond to lowball offers-I don't have to move this. All NJ firearms rules apply- can meet you at any FFL within an hour of 07960, prefer RTSP.. First to post I’ll take it wins the sale. Trades and partial trades considered (+\- cash as needed). If you've got something cool that you don't see below, try me. 1.) modern US .mil rifle clones: MK 12 Mod 0, 1 or H; Geissele/Colt URGI M4; Colt SOPMOD M4 2.) high end AR rigs (Hodge, KAC, HK, Noveske, LWRC, Colt) 3.) collectible US .mil sniper rifles and clones including KAC SR-25 / M110 family of rifles, M40 and M40A1-6s, Springfield 1903s and A4s, etc. 4.) other tactical rifles: KRISS, HK G36 and UMP clones, MCX, MPX, SCAR. Bren etc. 5.) Springfield WWII M1 Garand or postwar M1D Garand 6) Gen 3 NODs, PVS-14 setup (prefer full kit with helmet, mount, etc) I can’t seem to get these images to open in my post, but here’s the link. If anyone can find a way to get them into the ad I’d appreciate it! https://imgur.com/a/VCr5x1B

    New RPD Question

    Awesome to see an RPD in NJ! I never considered getting a belt fed before given how nutty NJ laws are, but I guess if your belts are only 15 rds and the weapon complies otherwise, why not??!! So then the next question is, RPD or PKM? TFD
  6. Remington has maintained that civvy ACRs will continue to say Bushhamster and the .mil ones will say Remington, but with the Bushmaster factory closed and all manufacturing moved to Ilion NY, that might change. Who knows? I'd be happy to see it all say (and be made by) Remington: Remington's rep for QC is a heck of a lot better than Bushy's. Actually the latest ACR configuration I saw is one newer than what's on the website. The forend is basically the same, but the stock no longer folds, just adjusts. And the lower is metal. It will be interesting to see how things evolve here... TFD
  7. New guy here with my 2 cents. My ACR is still one of the most used sticks in my safe. Is it on the heavy side? Yes, but I don't really mind. And the weight helps mitigate the recoil (not that 5.56 kicks much, but my follow up shots are faster because the barrel hardly moves). I might find it heavy if I took it to a 3 day tac class, but I haven't gone that route yet. Are the controls ideal? Maybe not, but maybe I would say differently if I hadn't already had so much time/muscle memory on the AR platform? The selector position doesn't bother me, and I like having the charging handle out over the barrel---it's really just the unusual placement of the bolt catch that screws me up occasionally. I'm also very impressed by the modularity: I have both forends, and it's amazing to be able to swap two free floating forends in under 30 seconds by manipulating one pushpin. Try that with a standard AR! Same with the stock (1 pushpin). I also really like the looks--IMHO it's the best looking 5.56 rifle out there (sue me). Your mileage may vary. I am the second owner, and neither the original owner or myself have had a single issue with reliability in over 3k rounds. It's a sample size of one, I know, but I'm pleased so far... Rumor is that Magpul is coming out with some new forends and stocks for the ACR soon. That, coupled with the eventual release of alternate caliber kits (6.8, 5.45, etc), and the positioning of the ACR in .mil's latest carbine trials all make me optimistic that the fat lady hasn't sung yet here...
