LIGHTNING

A new weapon platform designed by Magpul Industries, The Masada is scheduled to be released and available for civilian purchase in 2009.

This weapon will be mass produced and sold as the Bushmaster ACR. (Adaptive Combat Rifle)

That is neat and is definitely an improvement over the M16 platform.  Which is showing its age.  The ZM LR 300 series my give it some compition.  Though the Army is going to adopt a new sniper rifle that is a 7.62 match rifle based off of the M16 design.

I wonder how much they will cost.  I definitely like it though.

Looks like a hell of a weapon.  It will be interesting to see how it is adapted into the US Military which can be resistant to change at times.

Great gun...its a shame they want to stay with the 5.56.  Go with the 7.62, but make it a 7.62 x 51, not an AK-like 7.62 x 39.

I agree with going back to the 7.62 NATO.  The USMC used it as long as they could with the M-14 but eventually had to switch over to the M-16.

The biggest problem with the 7.62 is the recoil after prolonged shooting.  The  5.56 is a lot easier to handle with rapid fire.  The 7.62 will wear the shooter out a little quicker.  However, a bad guy shot with a 7.62 (.308) tends to stay shot as opposed to needing a follow up shot.
