    Bushmaster issues recall notice for ACR semiautomatic rifles

    Officials with Bushmaster Firearms International have issued a recall notice for all ACR model semiautomatic rifles.
    According to the notice, because of a design flaw, there is a potential for the firearm to become fully automatic when the trigger is pulled.
    “This unexpected firing of multiple rounds creates a potentially dangerous situation,” the notice says.

    No other firearms made by Bushmaster are involved in the recall.
    If you own a Bushmaster ACR firearm, you should:
    •Stop using it.
    •Call Bushmaster’s customer service department between 5:30 a.m and 3 p.m. PST weekdays at (800) 883-6229.
    You should have the serial number of the firearm at hand when you call.
    You will receive return-shipping instructions and a return-authorization number that will be used in processing your firearm.
    The basic model sells for about $2,700.
    According to the ACR page on Bushmaster’s website, a serial number search feature will be added soon.

    Had a Winchester model 100 in .308 that went full auto, had it repaired and it went south again. Had to part ways with her cheating heart.

    I think it's a marketing ploy to sell more of their "$1500" rifles for $2700. :)

    They reportedly have had issues of slam-fires and that is not a good issue to have. Unfortunately, the ACR was rushed to market before it was ready and anyone who bought one is an unpaid beta tester.

    It's a neat idea but it needs more development (and to lose some weight).

    Hasn't the ATF busted people before when their semi-autos malfunctioned and went full auto?
