   The Remington ACR, or Adaptive Combat Rifle, was originally developed by Magpul Industries and was known as Masada. However in 2008 development, production and sales of this assault rifle was licensed-to Bushmaster. Bushmaster took over the production and made some modifications to the rifle to meet emerging requirements of the US Military. The Masada name was dropped. Now for civilian market this rifle is sold as Bushmaster ACR. The official name of this rifle for military use is the Remington ACR.

   Magpul Industries originally developed a version of the M16 assault rifle with enhanced features. However the project was abandoned and the weapon was redesigned from scratch. Operating system is inspired by that of the M16, though it was significantly improved.

   The Remington ACR is a gas operated, selective fire weapon with a modular design. It has several features of other recent designs, such as the M16 and FN SCAR. This multi-caliber weapon is available chambered in standard NATO 5.56x45 mm, 6.5x39 mm Grendel, 6.8x43 mm Remington SPC or Soviet 7.62x39 mm ammunition. This weapon can fire enemy ammunition with the alternate barrel and lower receiver, what is very important for covert operations behind the enemy lines.

   The Remington ACR is available with four barrel lengths. It can be easily converted from a standard assault rifle (with 16.5" barrel) into compact assault rifle (10.5" barrel) carbine (14.5" barrel), squad automatic weapon or dedicated marksman rifle (18" barrel) without any tools. Barrel lengths of various calibers are exactly the same. This assault rifle can also be configured for handguard, stock type and trigger unit setup. The key idea of the ACR's modular system, that it will provide a wide variety of configurations within the matter of minutes. All parts are easily stripped for cleaning.

   All controls of the ACR assault rifle are fully ambidextrous. A safety / fire mode selector is located over the pistol grip. A charging handle can be installed on either side of the receiver and do not reciprocates when the weapon is fired. Magazine release button is also ambidextrous. Spent case ejection port is located on the right side of the receiver, however it has case deflector, which propels the cases away from left-handed shooters.

   This assault rifle is fed from detachable 30-round magazines. It accepts standard NATO M16-type magazines. It is also compatible with high capacity drum magazines. When chambered for 7.62-mm ammunition the ACR is compatible with the standard AK-47 magazines.

   This weapon has a full-length Picatinny-type scope rail. It can be fitted with various optics, night vision scopes, or detachable iron sights.

   The Remington ACR is proposed with removable modular stock. Alternatively can be fitted with a fixed or side-folding stock. Both of these stocks have adjustable cheek pad. The side-folding stock is adjustable for length. The weapon can be fired with the folded stock, as it does not blocks the trigger.

   Basic Remington ACR assault rifle has a simple foregrip. However a modular handguard with 3 accessory rails is available for this assault rifle. It accepts a variety of add-on accessories, such as vertical grips, laser pointers, tactical flashlights and so on. There is provision to mount a 40-mm underbarrel grenade launcher. The ACR is also compatible with a sound suppressor.
