    Don't trust anything the XCR fanbois have to say. XCR is not a war gun, too many little bolts that can fall out and make it inoperable.

    Get stuffed !!!! :flame: That would be your fault for not maintaining you weapon to the proper standard.
    Perhaps you would be better suited with a paint ball gun and pepper gas rounds. :sniper2:

    Keep in mind, any gun that needs a break in schedule is not really a combat gun. Then again maybe I am wrong, Al Qaeda might declare a cease fire and give you time to break in your gun before they commence with the attack.

    I suppose the reason why they don't break the gun in at the factory is to reduce costs. You don't actually need to shoot bullets to break it in...it's just the spring that needs worn in a bit. That can be achieved a myriad of ways. If it's the action that needs worn in as well, that also can be achieved easily. The process would expectedly be automated of course, but that's what would cost the money. You could also pay some Mexican to cycle the bolt back forth by hand 400 times...that would wear the action AND the spring at the same time.

    I forgot that the Russians and Chinese employed Elves at low wages to break in the guns to reduce cost before sending the out. I guess same goes Colt AR's, never heard of those needing break in either. How can Colt keep cost down? I thought employing Elves for low wages were illegal in this country?

    So for argument sake, what you are saying is the no one ever died or at least experienced a problem on the battlefield with a brand new off the line Colt before?

    I would not say that Break in on an XCR is required, it is smart. So long as it is working out of the box you don't need break in.

    If you hauled me out to a "war zone" and gave me any unfired weapon I would tell you to cram sand. I might feel a little better if it were an AK, or Colt, but I would still tell you to cram sand.

    Amazing, how many of you actually have combat experience? The quantity of complete shit being spread about is truly impressive.

    too many parts on the XCR can break or get lost. It's can;t mount an M203, the single nut barrel retention is mickey mouse like, it requires troops to understand the weapon and mintain it far more than an M4 and way way more than an AK.

    There is a reason it's not in widespread military or departmental use. It has potential, which means is could be great, but it isn't there yet. The overall design is interesting but the manufacturing implementatin needs work as do some parts of the design.

    I have own quite a bit of guns (Sig pistols, HK pistols, HK rifles, FAL's, AR's AK's, etc), and still have a lot of guns. I have never broke in any of them except the XCR. XCR had problems with Trigger rough (old one), not extracting, etc.

    If someone comes on here complaining of problems with their brand new XCR, we have all the XCR-Fanbois telling them "you have to use the proper ammo and turn up the gas to break in!!! :hopmad:
