    What do you know about the Masada and it's ? impending ? availability??

    I've read some of the tech specs, it looks good, but when can we trade some gold for it??

    I think they are saying $1500 for the Bushmaster (civilian) version and Remington is making the military rifle. However I would not count on seing one until they are done trying to get the military contract, that may or may not exsist.

    It's Magpul engineering it. I wouldn't count on any date they say (based on past performance).

    Very disappointing is the elimination of the 7.62x39mm option. 6.8mm and 6.5mm will be long gone before I hit the grave and there will still be a world of 7.62x39ammo left when those two calibers fade into oblivion.

    FUTURE WEAPONS talked about having it because it has more lethality and ability to operate in enemy territory w/o ammo resupply issues or leaving the signature 5.56 cases around. I like the AK round but I would like to have something that shoots it more accurately than an AK but with more reliability than the AR system. I will not consider buying this any longer. I might have to look into the XCR for now.

    Thanks all, this is exactly the conversation I was wanting. The XCR seems to offer (both 5.56 and 7.62) the functionality I was looking for. Northwest Firearms is the best!!
