The rebooted Bushmaster Firearms, saved from the dustbin of Remington Outdoors’ bankruptcy last year by Nevada’s Franklin Armory, keeps introducing everything except what the people really want– a return of the ACR modular rifle.
The newest entry in their black-rifle-that-is-not-an-ACR category is a variant of the Bravo Zulu series chambered in .350 Legend. The new model, intended for hunting use in states that allow straight-walled cartridges, has a 16-inch barrel, 5-round mag, DM2S two-stage trigger, and a full-length handguard featuring M-LOK slots
Why would you want a .350? The below, from Bushmaster:
“Combining a quality 16-inch barreled semi-automatic rifle with a straight-walled cartridge creates an impressive configuration for hunting medium-size game. The 350 Legend’s down-range energy and penetration is superior to the venerable 30-30 Win, 300 BLK, and even has considerably less recoil and greater penetration than the common 243 Win round. The American hunter will find this rifle handy whether they are hunting deer on the open ground or black bear at the tree.”
Sorry, no MSRP.
