    O.K. already... my mistake. But you got to admit, if one has never seen a SCAR before; the gas block, folding "Fast" type stock, general layout... the XCR does look SCAR ish, no?

    But I do stand corrected.

    Eh, if I recall correctly, I was running an XCR before here was such a thing as the SCAR.
    Maybe a better comment would be that the SCAR looks XCR ish, eh?
    Do you really think we want laws to be observed? We want them broken. There's no way to rule innocent men. The only power any government has is the power to crack down on criminals. When there aren't enough criminals, one makes them. One declares so many things to be crimes that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws. Who wants law-abiding citizens? Pass the kind of laws that can’t be observed, enforced, or objectively interpreted - and you create a nation of law-breakers.

    Apologies. You corrected yourself in the other thread, and I realize I came across as a dick directed towards you.

    My intent was to only point out that sometimes when people see things, when put under the microscope, sometimes things aren't what they appear to be.

    You have a 7.62x39 XCR, is the barrel heavy or light, and could you post a pic of it?

    I just can't ever recall seeing a light barrel XCR in 7.62x39, and it seems anytime I see a pic of a XCR in 7.62x39, it looks to have the heavy barrel.

    I have both light and heavy barrels in 5.56, and the only time the barrel seems to really stick out weight wise, is if I have a optic on the rifle. For some reason the heavy barrel doesn't really feel much heavier with only irons on the rifle.

    I don't see the similarity either. To me it's like claiming the Ford F150 looks like a Mini Cooper simply because they both have wheels, headlights and doors. The boot shaped stock on the SCAR and hooded forward folding iron sight are dead give-aways. But, whatever, we can't all be correct all the time... that would make very boring forums.

    Oh, so just because you haven't seen one personally... all others who have are tripping on acid? It's a good thing you don't think the planet is flat... or do you?

    Sig, JFYI...they look VERY similar....as in they'd probably need to have the pic taken side by side to tell the difference.

    Pick and choose your poison.

    Heat kills barrels, and heavy barrels are just harder to heat up. Besides the longevity, the groups on heavy barrels stays tighter longer...

    However, since we are talking carbines shooting at least 50% of the time unsupported, a lighter barrel is much more handy, and easier to swing around. In addition, carbines shoot almost always bulk ammo that is not that accurate, so all the benefits you get from a heavy barrel are really a non factor. Anything around 6" groups is more than good enough.
