    What barrel lengths and barrel profiles will be available for the XCR-M?

    Here's my hope list:

    18", 20" and 24" both heavy fluted and heavy profile barrels with 1:10 twist rate rifling.

    I voted for 18", 20" and 24" heavy and 18", 20" and 24" heavy with fluting.

    So six different barrel types (votes) for me.

    18" and light. 12" and heavy with flutes (what the heck!).

    Also, I still want a light 18" in 1 in 12 twist.

    Re: What barrel lengths and barrel profiles will be available for the XCR-M?

    I would like to see the 12" heavy/fluted and the 20" heavy fluted barrels. This works for me and should accommodate all situation I can think of.

    We can only hope and wait. From all the other polls it would seem that there is a calling for the heavy fluted barrels. I like the extra weight up front, especially if you have to use it to nudge someone

    I think we all are on the waiting list! :

    We could use a bit more participation in this thread I think, otherwise the Robarms folks may think there's no interest in the XCR-M.

    That very well might be the case. I know my interest in any new .308 is at an all time low. The prices of .308 surplus is just ridiculous. I do reload, but I don't much care for doing it and I do have another .308 battle rifle.

    Throw in the soon-to-be existance of the 6.5x39 for the XCR-L and my interest isn't what you'd call frothing at the mouth. I'm sorta interested, but the ammunition situation is a huge rain cloud over this particular parade.

    I now own 2 Springfield Armory rifles, a SOCOM2 & a M1A Match rifle. Also have 2 FN FAL's... 1 Belgain & 1 Austrialian. Plus my HK-91 I hardly ever shoot. Almost forgot my French MAS 49/56 (taken 2 deer with it) and a MAS 36 both in .308. Years ago I bought 2,000 primed cases (and still have over 1,000 left) + a shitload of brass and bullets from a store going out of business. Probably wouldn't buy the "M" unless I sold a couple.

    I've got an 18" PARA DSA. The accuracy is just over an MOA but the regular profile barrel heats up to much so after a long session on speed plates and accuracy expands a little. A fluted Bull would be a better option.

    20-24 would be good to allow longer range shooting aka AR10 sniper varients and a 12 inch bull for an SBR would be killer.

    Re: What barrel lengths and barrel profiles will be available for the XCR-M?

    Call me silly, but I want the longest barrel I can get - in the lightest contour I can get - and keep the rig in the M14 weight range. Why? Because with optics and a mount, we're in the HK91 weight range. Anything heavier would be unwieldly - I don't much care for humping the '91 too. The lighter the better.

    Obviously this can go too far, but a good 'normal contour' (e.g. the diameter of a US GI M14 barrel) barrel in the 20" to 22" range would be IDEAL in my opinion.

    The shortest barrel I'd be interested in -keeping the 308 Winchester / 7.62 NATO chambering- would be the 18 incher. And I'd want the 18 incher to be LIGHT as well.

    Medium contours? POSSIBLY, but only with fluting. Heavy barrels tend to be so front-heavy they're silly. I once pulled a scoped SR25 with a heavy barrel - the thing was so incredibly front-heavy with the long heavy barrel and next to no weight in the butt it was a chore to pack it anywhere. Offhand shooting? Yeah, with balance like a Peterbuilt cab-over. I'm sure it was a LOVELY range queen though :

    Does any of that make sense?
    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.
