    XCR Keymod 7.62 x 39 impressions

    So I finally made it out to shoot my new keymod 7.62 x 39 XCR. Having owned the milled quad rail version before, I like the balance of the keymod XCR way better. I shot a 15 round group while sighting with the results below at 25 yds.

    I Shot 200 rounds with 1 fail to feed in a mag I knew was going to have issues when loading it (loading rounds was really tight compared to other 2 mags bc the feed lips were too close together). The two good mags (on the right in photo below) I loaded with 30 rounds 3x each and ran through 180 rounds in about 30 mins and it ran great.

    The shots grouped well, 0 trigger slap, and overall I much prefer it to my old 5.56 XCR, and since I was shooting steel cased Tul at $6 a box of 20 I can actually afford to shoot it! I purchased from Nate at Little Jacks Guns a. k.a. known as Naval Beaver on the forum. He was great and I highly recommend him. The gun was clean as a whistle when I was done, just wiped a bit of powder off the piston rod, a couple cleaning cloths down the barrel, and put her away till next time. I missed my old XCR but my new one made me forget all about her.

    No prob, thanks for the info and being quick to answer any questions. One last question though, are the 2 mags on the right in the pic above the latest gen mags, if so where is a good place to buy a few more. Thanks!

    I'm assuming the two that are the same are the extras that weren't provided by RA. I think I've got more of those but need to check when I get back home tomorrow.

    Nice, what profile barrel do you have? I'm trying to make a final decision on light vs heavy. I'm thinking light, dealer says heavy :/

    Paul I went with the light barrell and Im loving it. I had an older model XCR-L and the difference really is night and day to me. The new keymod version is perfectly balanced, smmoth running, and my 7.62 x 39 has run flawlessly wit hh the exception of one ASC mag which they replaced for free due to it being too narrow where it feeds into the rifle. 600 rounds and only malfunctions were with the bad mag, none since in the last 400 rounds. I only shoot cheap Tul ammo so im enjoying shooting without beeaking rhe bank!
