This gem comes from GlockTalk user Smashy:

I got my new mouse gun, a single-shot Nerf Secret Strike AS-1. Paid $2.99 (no background check required). The fit and finish are pretty nice overall, except for a bit of sprue in a couple of spots along the mold lines, but that cleans up easily with a razor blade.

It came with two darts, so I bought an extra pack of 36 for $5.99. A pack of ammo costs more than the gun. Go figure.

The size is pretty compact, fits easily in the hand…

For those of you that though the initial leaked price of approximately $1500 was too good to be true, you were right!

From the recent press release:

Suggested retail price: Basic $2,685 and Enhanced $3,061

The Bushmaster ACR for the commercial market is available in the Basic and Enhanced configurations.  The additional features for the Enhanced version include an AAC® Blackout™ NSM Flash Hider for exceptional reduction of muzzle flash; multi-functional, three-sided aluminum hand guard with integral MIL-STD 1913 accessory rail; and folding, six-position telescoping composite stock with rubber butt pad, sling attachment mounts and 2-point push button sling. Each configuration of the commercial ACR is offered in a non-reflective, black finish or Coyote Brown (30118).

I’m sure they will sell enough of them anyway, but at almost double the initial leaked price for the most basic model, a lot of people are going to be angry.

Bushmaster has their ACR (Adaptive Combat Rifle) website up with a countdown on it.  It will be released on January 18th, which is 1 day before the SHOT show in Las Vegas starts.

Check out the website -> http://www.bushmaster.com/acr/

Here is an ad that is going around (as usual click to enlarge):

From the description:

Found this video on a disk at the airport.
Looks like a promotional video of their ACR to be used at SHOT show.

Whatever it is, it’s pretty awesome.

For those of you that don’t know.. this rifle has changed hands many times before this up and coming release.  It first was the Magpul Masada, then Bushmaster bought it and renamed it to the ACR (Adaptive Combat Rifle) and is reportedly going to be catering to the commercial marketplace.  Remington will be selling a selective-fire version of the ACR to military and law enforcement.  Freedom Group Inc. is a large company that owns both Bushmaster and Remington.
