it's still an M4.. in a tux ..
By the way.. the Civi version of the MASADA is available in Canada.
Bushmaster ACR, and you can even get it in a unrestricted version (about $3200 )
the SCAR is still MIA with respect to its Firearms Registry # at this point.. but they will eventually run out of reasons to delay and release it too .. and it will probably be available in an unrestricted version as well.
