I kept trying, but it was overloaded. I hope not too many people saw that before it went down.

The tax time deal has started at midnight every night.

I got on a few hours ago and placed my order, then posted that up.

I guess the site went down after that.

Hopefully they'll still have some when it comes back up.

arrrg. The site does not want to work. Will bushmaster actually ship these to CA though? I know they are aware of pinned mag ARs, but they might not know that its ok with other stuff. Hell, they might not even know about shipping it in pieces.

Doesn't matter, bro! Cold War Shooters or LanWorld will do the intermediary thing.

It said on the page this would be the 1st delivered and shipping would begin the 1st of June. Also said the price, IIRC, would be $1400.

It's a new rifle, used to be called the Magpul Masada. No one else will sell it besides Bushmaster (except dealers).

The Masada by Bushmaster? No big loss. I'd rather put $925 toward a SIG-556.

The barrel is probably sour anyway.

Wow... I find the SIG556 pretty uninspiring... Gimme a 550/551, though...

How can you be down on this?

I actually ordered 2. I had my sister order one, too. For some reason her ship date came back as April 1, but mine isn't until later.

You guys are definitely going to be met with resistance from Bushmaster. Hopefully they will allow the gun to be shipped to CWS.

Well I guess I'll have to deal with that on April 1st with my sister's ACR.

"Hey sis, your evil rifle's ready to be shipped. Where you want it to go?"

I'm sorry, but why wouldn't they ship it to CWS or LanWorld? They don't know who or what or why it's going wherever.

What a crock....

Called BM and they said there was never any ACR pre-order available. Said that they don't even have a part number for it so no such pre-order exists.
