    Not dead, they were on display at the show, but a LOT less interest.
    I think the Hitler parody video sums it up best.

    One of the better things to come out of the whole sorry deal was that Hitler video.
    The problem with fooling all of the people some of the time, is that when they find out they've been fooled, it tends to end badly

    I'd be interested if they resurrected the Masada.

    Yup, lol. For those who haven't seen it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BB0Pu-rvFjs

    I agree with Blaxsun. The Masada was pretty awesome before Bushmaster got their mitts on it.

    The problem is it doesn't offer much and the price is ridiculous.

    Over 3K for the base model. You're in Swiss Arms PE-90, and Tavor price ranges, with a bunch at $500 less. The Swiss arms is better made, and a proven design although dated, while the Tavor is state of the art, battle tested and comes with an optic. Yes the ACR offers some nice features. But... it's not battle tested, it's not really that unique anymore and once again the cost is brutal. In the States with the AR I wouldn't even consider an ACR for that price over a top end AR rifle.

    If the price were reasonable I think this rifle would sell. But it's not. Pretty much not worth bothering right now.

    No argument there! It originally weighed 6.7lbs with a retail price of $1,400USD for a 16" version. Compare that to 8lbs-something and over $3,000USD! The ACR really begs the question of how a company could seriously ##### up such an innovative design. Magpul must be just kicking themselves they didn't go it alone...

    Bushmaster totally dropped the ball on the ACR.

    Magpul still has the Massoud, which I would like to see go into production, but from a non-Cerberus company. 7.62x51mm/.308 Win carbines seem to be gaining momentum, so it'd be welcome, as long as whatever company gets it doesn't blow the opportunity.
