In 2009 I reviewed both versions of the XCR and gave them mostly thumbs up. The XCRs combine AR ergonomics with AK level reliability and longevity. With brass fodder, they were accurate and reliable. I did criticize the weight (dude to all metal chassis), the firing impulse, and not being able to feed steel cased ammo back then. This is equal time for Alex Robinson in front of a big audience. He shows us the updates to the design, explains the unique non-rotating bolt of the XCR, and takes exception to the recoil criticism. Fair enough! The XCR now wears what seems to be a much better design adjustable AND folding XCS stock; check out that sweet check piece that actually DOES raise your check weld (vs the SCAR). I think if Robinson would mill off those side and bottom rails entirely and include three 3" sections that are user attachable, the gun could lose a few ounces and sell better and I myself would be more excited about it. But even as it is, few guns do what the XCR does now: a Kalishinov style design that departs completely with Stoner and rapid caliber conversions. It seems the caliber conversions are a bit more affordable than they used to be too. Available in CeraKoted finishes, the 7.5 lb (light contour barrel) XCR-L still stands alone as a unique, reliable alternative to the competition.
