The Magpul Massoud .308 rifle.
 
Looks like it's progressing well. I wonder who's going to sell this one.

hawk1 09-14-2008 7:27 PM

H2H 09-14-2008 7:31 PM

I hope we can get it in CA :) 10 rds fixed mag. It's on my list..

NSR500 09-14-2008 7:36 PM

Looks like they ditched the ambidextrous charging handle.

PIRATE14 09-14-2008 7:55 PM

Nice little dig on FN........

5968 09-14-2008 8:03 PM

I was thinking that it looked pretty big too.

Solidsnake87 09-14-2008 8:44 PM

How much? I'll be getting one. Can you hook us up CWS? :D

Frijolito1988 09-14-2008 8:51 PM

looks...heavy lol

aplinker 09-14-2008 10:42 PM

it looks like a poor man's SCAR-H

Solidsnake87 09-14-2008 10:56 PM

I'd take it over a scar any day.

+1 there.

Jpach 09-14-2008 11:18 PM

Why? Does the SCAR-H suck b*lls or something?

Yeah, except what is the plastic looking protrusion thing sticking out on the left side of the rifle around where the ejection port would be in a left handed config in this pic:
http://www.magpul.com/pics/massoud7.jpg

I'm guessing the grey screwed in cover is for switching from right to left handed ejection. The tan protrusion doesn't look like it could be a charging handle given its mounting area, but it sure does look like one. What is that thing?

I got to play with the first Massoud at SHOT in Feb. After holding the Masada and Massoud, and the SCAR-L and SCAR-H, I will beg borrow or steal to get a SCAR-L and SCAR-H.

I no longer have interest in the Masada or Massoud.

marxdspot 09-15-2008 7:44 AM

DAMN IT! Another thing to wait for! The ACR and SCAR-L aren't even here yet!

+500

As soon as I worked the controls on the masada I was done and off looking for another gun to fondle.

Keep up the accessories magpul, leave the other stuff alone.

69Mach1 09-15-2008 9:03 AM

Just for comparison sake. Here's the SCAR heavy.
http://sgcusa.com/images/large/SCAR-...20Standard.jpg

The ACR- Adaptive Combat Rifle is now being built and sold by Bushmaster. I'm definately getting one. I think the Massoud is a fine design also, but I'm tempted by the FN brand, and who couln't resist buying something named "SCAR". Anybody know the pricepoint of the SCAR heavy? Is it being imported and then modified with US parts?

trinydex 09-15-2008 9:27 AM

wait... isn't this vapor still? i havent' even heard anything recently about the masada.

69Mach1 09-15-2008 9:47 AM

It's no longer called the Masada. Bushmaster is building it and it's been renamed the ACR - Adaptive Combat Rifle. It's scheduled to go on sale the first quarter of 2009. Price point of the ACR is under $1,500.

brando 09-15-2008 9:49 AM

You know, I just can't support this rifle. After hearing so much about Barrack HUSSEIN Obama, I just can't support any rifle that sounds Islamic ;)

That's the charging handle. I don't think the ejection port side can be changed.

69Mach1 09-15-2008 9:53 AM

A little more Massoud porn.

AR based .308's are so "last week". As black rifle addict, I need a new fix every year. :) And I already have one.

So I guess this is the future of all small arms to come. Ugly looking mold injected thermo plastic outer shell with enough rails to attached drumsticks, cell phones, car keys, coffee mugs, and other GPS junk devices all over them. :mad: Well I don't like em. Yeah, they are neat and innovative but just call me old fashioned, I still love rifles with blued barrels and pretty wood. At the price of just one of these new rifles I could go buy multiple "classic" looking rifles. I say no thank you to these way overpriced plastic guns.:rant:

hawk1 09-15-2008 11:46 AM

Cool, more for us...:eek:

Now, where to find the SCAR?....

I'll take toolbox's word for quality. I'm in for a scar H. Maybe a scar L.

yeah, the name change but they pushed the production back nad since that announcement there's really been nothin'.

BP88 09-15-2008 2:09 PM

It kind of reminds me of an extended version of a FN SCAR.

MrLogan 09-15-2008 2:18 PM

I want one of these. :D

Guntech 09-15-2008 2:22 PM

I didn't know they made rifles, they should have given it a better name.

Pryde 09-15-2008 3:06 PM

The SCAR is DoD tested and SOCOM approved.
Pretty much a no-brainer which one to get.......

I don't know about yalls, but that scar heavy looks like monkey butt. The long barrel and chubby thick furniture looks so unevenly gross.

I think the massoud has a better profile, granted its not the hottest thing ever. I think if it looks good it will shoot and feel good. Just my way of thinking and so far that line of thinking has not failed me yet.

Pryde 09-15-2008 5:54 PM

Ok so basically you are saying that the Magpul is a better rifle just because it "looks" better. Or are you saying that anything that looks good also "feels" good? (whatever that means)

If you ask me I'd rather have the one that works instead of the one that looks cool.... :rolleyes:

I went to SHOT with a Masada and HK 417 at the top of my to get list. I thought the pictures of the SCAR were just ugly.

Then I held the SCAR.

OMG. Pictures do not do it justice. I left SHOT with the SCAR-L and SCAR-H at the top of my list, and the Masada and HK 417 no longer on my list at all.

To each their own. That is simply my experience.

(And I know the Masada has been renamed the ACRXCRAXRMSARM4STG. I just refuse to use the mother@#$%ing stupid three letter retarded acronym that is almost the exact same as every other new rifles totally stupid three letter acronym name.)

69Mach1 09-15-2008 8:56 PM

I like the SOF Combat Assault Rifle too. :)
I just have to pace myself.

+1.

Handled SCAR. Handled Massada (who names a rifle for a mass suicide?)

Want SCAR
Even with reciprocating bolt.
