No, it is not an AR. But it is a very nice and comfortable rifle to fire. The stock trigger is very heavy, but it has a very nice break. It is nice that there will be caliber conversion kits available, but like the ACR I am not holding my breath. The trigger drops out by pulling 2 pins and it is modular so there will likely be replacements. There is also a very simple removal of an extra spring that does reduce the trigger pull. It can be done with a pair of needlenose pliers in about 5 minutes.
So far no FTF or FTE's in 300 rounds. The accuracy is about 2 MOA on mine with surplus ammo. I never even tried the iron sights and mounted a scope before the first shot. It disassembles easily, and stays very clean compared to DI rifles. It is not for everyone, but I sure like it.
