I wish they have a SCAR too, but if money was no object, I'd take the ACR over the SCAR

That must have felt good.

Stroked my ego more when he said I "knew my stuff".

There was a bunch of kids, and when I say kids, I mean, Modern Warfare 2 players that recognized the rifle and founded out how weird it looked in real life. I had to give them the run down about it.

Seriously though, the price, I'd kill to have this thing on my desk

I'm proud of you. Originally I was excited it was in there but now I'm just disappointed. I have no idea how heavy a Sig is. What's its weight compared to a AR-15?

Assuming you are talking about the Sig 556,- it feels like it weighs more than an FAL, but that's just because the weight is unevenly distributed (all at the front)

I know, the SIG 556 is very front heavy. You need to get used to the weight. But the ACR does have weight in the front, but not as severe.

Length wise, the ACR is about the standard carbine length with the 16in barrel. This basic model only has the non collapsible/folding stock. But the stock itself is short too.

If you aren't familiar with the bolt catch, it takes some time to get used to it, but it's very easy to release.
