    Well we know he's getting at least $16,000 for an ACR. I wonder what the reserve went up to.

    Im pretty sure that is a Semi auto ACR.

    Anyone silly enough to pay $16k+ for one of these..... Well, I just want to sell him my famous Picasso painting of dogs playing poker or my Florida vacation property in the middle of the swamp.

    The buyer is Kookoo for cocoa puffs....

    The Bushmaster ACR currently on gunbroker for $16,000 with reserve not met, is semi-auto only. It's one of two that have been released. Bushmaster/Remington is trying for a Q3 2010 release time frame with a MSRP around $3000 for the semi-auto only ACR.

    Heck, if I were Bushmaster I might release them one at a time for the next few years.

    Shrubmaster is watching this and will adjust their MSRP to a couple 100 less than the winning bid...

    it doesn't matter. One sucker an hour even, paying 2500-3000 bucks for an ACR, is still a very sizable profit

    He's only getting that kinda money cause it's the first one. Everyone after this one will go for retail or less.

    I thought Bushmaster announced at SHOT 2010 that the ACR "Basic" was going to be released March 1? Not that I'd be shocked if they missed another date; but I had not heard anything different yet (haven't been following real closely either though once I learned the proposed price and features of the ACR).

    Personally, I think people do not appreciate the genius of the ACR. It takes a fair amount of creativity to build a bare-bones 5.56mm carbine with a 16" barrel out of plastic and aluminium and have it approach the loaded weight of a 7.62mm M14 rifle with a 20" barrel made out of wood and steel. ;)

    Not exactly sure how much he bid for that gun, but I'd have a hard time calling it "winning". But if he can sell it for five figures, he wins.

    Wow, for that kind of money you can practically get a real Colt M16 right? Heck, I'd sell the ACR too, get a real M16, and then get a custom 22LR upper that can stand up to auto.

    If he can sell that thing for 16K plus, more power to him. I'd have done the same in his place and used the money to buy 16 other guns

    16,000 can get me the weapons I've always wanted and parts to support them, ammo, etc.
