    used xcr, seller doesn't know the barrel twist.

    A local guy is selling an XCR for 1350, no iron sights as he took them off and put them on another gun. He doesn't know the twist of the barrel. Is it written on the barrel somewhere? It's a heavy barrel and the S/N of the gun is in the low 2000s if that helps.

    twist is stamped on the front of the barrel by the flash hider usually. most likely it's a 1-9, but there were some heavy 1-8 18.6" barrels made a few years back.

    If the rifle is 2 years old or older, it has a 1/8.

    If it has 1:8 that would be sweet. The lightest round I would ever want to shoot would be 55gr, but I would love to have the heavier bullets as an option.(such as 75-77gr rounds)

    Is it the old gas system, or the new? Folding stock or regular? Pics?
