    Maybe since the government shut down is over... for at least 3 weeks, they can approve my ACR that's been pending since May or so.

    Regardless, they've shown they're capable of speeding it up, and yet they don't.

    The ACR is flawed from the start because it has no internal magazine feed lip supports like the AR15 or AR180. Why BM didn't include this is beyond me. The SCAR has the same stupid problem/oversight.

    The better gun, if the modular AR-ish platform, is the SIG MCX.

    Hadn’t even heard of this. Is that a consideration? I’ve half been debating getting something other than another AR.

    Most people don't know or don't seem to care about the mag well area.

    In my experience with the ACR; a mag that's inserted fairly aggressively will spit out a live round if the bolt is open. This can cause a malfunction right off the bat. Another issue is shooting prone off the magazine. The mag is sloppy and will rock in the mag well. This means the feed lips will get whacked by the bolt carrier and/or press up against the bolt carrier enough to retard the bolt's movement.

    Likely none of this was a concern during initial development since the only PMAG that existed was the Gen1. But as the PMAG has been massaged over the years to fit in more and more mag wells the fit can be pretty sloppy in the ACR.

    Take a look at other guns that use an M16 mag such as the Tavor. The Israelis knew what they were doing and included feed lip supports in the top of the mag well in that rifle.
