Probably been asked before...but is there plans to make the dovetailed front sight that fits the gas block? It would be nice.
Years ago we had talked about having that because we could then have barrels pre-adjusted to work with the rear sight. That way we could change barrels and not have to sight them in just like on the M240 and other CSWs. Alex never bothered to do anything though which was a shame.

I love and hate how the XCR is not mainstream.
I love it because its different and quite honestly...the best system I've had other than my CZ BREN. I hate it, because there is very little aftermarket support for it...however the gun does not really need it. XCR is well engineered.

How about an M in .338 Federal and/or .358 Win? I still like .338 Spectre, but these two are really starting to get my attention. As most here have been subjected to my SHTF mentality of close/quiet/hard, I won't rant on that concept. But I really like the terminal ballistics of big and slow at sub 200 yard distances. When it comes to fight or flight, anything outside a couple hundred yards is hunker down and play it by ear. Inside that it's on and I'll be throwing boulders as quiet as a can can (no I didn't stutter).
I don't need long distance accuracy out of my my M; I have an SRS-A1 for that (and it is very good at its job). I just want bone crushing impacts that make the target's buddies re-think their plans. Those urbanite, leftist, morons that somehow think they will escape their kind, and starvation, by venturing into the rural communities and taking what they need; sorry mofos, nothing but pain and suffering for you out here!
For those that load their own devastation, Starline is making rifle calibers now. I have loaded some of the 308 brass and I must say, I am impressed! While Lapua brass is king, Starline is as good as Hornady match or better. 2.5 gr deviation in weight in 250 casings. Concentricity on par with Lapua (I actually have four to five casings, out of 250, that are within five-ten-thou (for anyone that doesn't understand that..."damned near perfect").
They Currently have 308 Win, 243 Win, 338 Federal, 358 Win, 6.5CR (LP) and 6.5CR (SP) available at fairly reasonable cost (free shipping). I'm not a dealer because their margin sucks ass, but their brass rocks!

There was a guy who came around, promising all sorts of custom fab possibilities, who did offer to come up with a dovetail front sight. But, as you can see, there never was one... physically.
