Following Don Summers ideas presentation at Nufac02, the paper considers a 4 to 16 GeV pulsed muon synchrotron accelerator for a Muon Collider. The paper discusses: 1) possible acceptance requirements, 2) arc and straight section lattices, 3) optimization of the magnet gradient for minimum stored magnetic energy, 4) the use of a DC offset for the pulsed ring magnets, 5) a preliminary look at the cost of a specific design, and 6) a parametric study of both pulsed synchrotron and RLA costs as a function of acceptances and allowed decay loss.

We conclude that if a decay loss of 25 \% is acceptable, then a pulsed synchrotron with acceptances required using either one or two cooling rings, should reduce the 4-20 GeV acceleration cost by a factor of two compared with study-2.
