ACR Scores Golden Bullseye

Windham, ME - Bushmaster ACR has been selected to receive the NRA's 2011 Golden Bullseye Award for "Rifle of the Year" by Shooting Illustrated magazine. The NRA Publications Golden Bullseye Awards acknowledge the finest products available in the shooting sports. The Golden Bullseye Award will be presented to Bushmaster during the 2011 NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in April 2011

The new Bushmaster ACR redefines the term "modular" with the extraordinary ability to change calibers, barrel lengths and stock configurations in minutes - without the use of tools. The first of its kind, and the only rifle you need to master the infinite number of extreme scenarios you'll face in the worlds of law enforcement and personal defense.

Truly the most versatile and adaptive rifle ever conceived, it was born of a collaborative effort between Bushmaster®, Magpul® and Remington® to create the ultimate military combat weapons system.

The ACR offers the ability to change calibers in minutes by swapping the bolt head, barrel and magazine. Barrels, stocks, and accessories can also be changed, without tools, at the user level allowing the ACR to go from a close-quarters battle platform to a designated marksman platform. The ACR gives the operator all of the options needed, while utilizing a superbly reliable gas piston operating system, a non-reciprocating charging handle and intuitive, ambidextrous controls on a platform that is a natural fit for any operator.

By combining dedicated, multi-brand research and development; relentless iterations of torture testing; and the most advanced materials available in the market today with Bushmaster's uncompromising commitment to quality construction - the result is the ultimate, fully-modular, combat-adaptable Bushmaster ACR.
