I saw an ad for it while browsing through the Dec. issue of "Special Weapons for Law Enforcement". It had a railed handguard I haven't seen before. I was dissapointed that 7.62x39 wasn't listed as an optional caliber.
I really haven't kept up with it's development, but the ad must have been placed in August or September.

Nope it is real. Remington will market it for defense customers. Bushmaster will be the branding for consumers.
They are taking the smart route and making it in 5.56x45mm first. Additional development will include 6.8x43mm, 7.62x39mm, .30 AR and probably the 6.5 Grendel.
This was all the buzz on the gun blogs about a month ago.
