    I picked up my 2nd XCR today. It's much improved over the model I got a year ago

    It has a medium contour barrel with Gen. 2 gas block, which has a very slick tool-less gas adjust system

    It also has MI sights, which seem to fit better.

    I regard the XCR as the best carbine to come out of American think tank in a long time

    I have one and love it. Don't know if I've seen better. It shoots good and is easy to shoot well. A better all around gun than an AR IMHO.

    You should have waited just a few weeks and got the 7.62 version of it. Very nice XCR, I have one to and love it.

    Folding stocks are cool.

    Ergonomics of an AR with a gas piston. I wish more gas piston rifles with AR ergonomics would come out on the market. Yours looks like a nice one.
  6. I hate you. J/K - very nice! :)

    Personally I would prefer a 5.45x39 version, but a 7.62x39 kit is on the radar

    The XCR is pretty dang cool...

    That's really cool. Looks like an updated AK-47 top melted into an AR-15 bottom.

    I too look forward to the 5.45 x39 kit for my XCR, I also hope that they will get around to the .22LR Conversion Kit

    So can anyone tell me why this or the ACR is not the standard rifle for the US Military?
    Stupid top brass.

    I'm waiting for Alex to bring out the 7.62x51 to buy my second XCR....just got to work out some way to hide the purchase from "she who must be obeyed".

    Anyone try one with a silencer yet? Im curious to see if they vent gas like a FAL does, or if they're quieter like a piston-op AR.

    I have not tried any with a silencer yet jus waiting to be 21, but I know some people over on the XCR Forum has

    I like the fact that they have also switched from YHM to MI sights. I would hope for a switch to Troy one day but that would probably add too much to the price.

    because the ACR doesn't exist yet and Robarm could not prove that they could meet the SCAR production requirements, let alone be able to rearm the entire .mil establishment, for two reasons.

    I know that, I was referring to the fact that there are great designs out there and no one will run with them.

    I dont give it much thought. The product is solid, innovative and I'm well supported by the XCR community and Robarm.

    So while the SCAR is choking under testing, and the ACR is stuck in no mans land, I'm having a dandy time shooting my XCR.

    Even after they are out, I dont think I'll be trading up. I only want the ACR in 5.45 and who the hell knows if that will happen in our lifetime. Will the SCAR be better than the XCR overall...probably not to be honest.

    How well do those flashy new lancer L5s work?

    So far, they are awesome. Very durable and feed perfectly. I've tested them in a XCR, 556 and AR15. ZERO issues.

    The metal feedlips and rubber baseplate make them a better value compared to PMAGs
