From being out of the country, to doing protection work with dogs and sick parents I literally haven't fired my XCR or a weapon in the last 2 years. Plan on getting back into the swing of things and I come back here and it's a dead forum. WTF happened? Still looks like there are mag issues, mine are pretty much brand new, I'm kinda blown away by everything.
Someone fill me in.

Not sure what you're trying to determine. Lex sold the forum; it's now owned by a group that owns other firearm forums. Participation here has dwindled greatly....mostly b/c the product has stagnated in terms of service and availability. It's still a boutique gun...not a lot of production or adoption. QC is still a problem as is CS, but things do seem to be improving. Kermit and Nate are still doing everything they can to get parts/guns and do an outstanding job. The XCR-L has had some upgrades....from triggers, to one piece op rods, to full picatinny rails, to 2 designs of the BHO, to hinging open 90º, ambi mag release/safety....new stock, etc. There's now the micro and mini configuration, 5.45x39 conversions, XCR pistols, the XCR-M in .308 with several different variants from a mini upper to different bbl lengths to talk of a pistol and other calibers (like .260 Rem next). I'm sure there are other things....I'll let others chime in.

Have to agree with Sean. There hasn't been much new stuff going on with the platform. It feels like there's a lot more politics discussion on the forum than XCR talk.
Have been able to get some parts but it's still less than perfect. Lots of follow up required to get anything moving from sales. I'm still waiting on some barrels that I requested a LOOOOOOOOOONNNNNGG time ago.
There was a pretty good steak process posted by EC. I need a good steak...
Jesus Christ I was looking at the parts because I've got the XCR-L Standard and wanted to get a 12 inch light barrel to exchange with my 18 inch heavy barrel, and it's $400 bucks? Wouldn't it be cheaper to just shorten and turn down the existing barrel?
