Civilian ACR/Magpul Masada Coming Soon?

Bushmaster has posted an update on the ACR (Advanced Combat Rifle, a.k.a. Magpul Masada). They are predicting a launch in the first half of 2010. Bushmaster is supposed to be marketing the carbine to civilians, with Remington going for the military contracts.

Pray that the November 2010 elections go better than the 2008 elections!

EDIT 11/14/09: The Wikipedia ACR Article states that the suggested retail price for the semi-automatic ACR is anticipated to start around $1200. I wonder how long it will take for street prices to come down to the retail price. I would expect the first few thousand to sell for over $2000 easily judging by Gunbroker auction bids on the SCAR rifles when they first came out.
