In this episode Vic takes a look at Steyr’s entry into the US Army’s Advanced Combat Rifle Program. This is part of our series on the ACR rifles, be sure to check out the videos on the others.
The Steyr ACR was one of four entries that took part in US military trials during the late 1980s to find a technologically advanced replacement for the M16. While the program proved a failure it pushed the bounds of small arms technology.
