Cool! I have a feeling you are going to sell a lot of rifles that day.

I love my XCR. I am hoping Robinson stays around for awhile so that I can get the support that I need in case it breaks. The weird part is I have never needed support of any kind for any of my firearms other than ordering parts and talking over the phone :D

Mine is about 300 rounds now with various brass ammo at the #4 setting. I don't consider my XCR a real rifle until she has proven to me she can shoot Wolf without hiccups like my M4's can.

Time will tell how if the XCR will be elevated to battle rifle status, but as for now... I am enjoying it, GREAT RIFLE and is a pleasure to shoot.

With Eotech


With it's battle proven brother, Bushmaster M4, which has gone 2000+ rounds of Wolf.

Hey EricCartman, drive down 12/16 and see how us Californians have to reload (very slowly)...

Warning: shooting a gas piston short stroke XCR might make you never want to shoot a recoil buffer, spring operated AR rifle!
