    I have to admit, even though I am a FAL guy I would love to see a
    XCR-M.
    Give me FAL reliability with better accuracy, built in rails, and good ergos for 1,500 and I'll be all over it.

    How far out is the XCR-M?

    Is it going to be available before Osama/McKlinton take over?

    Will we (forum members) be given the opportunity to pre-order??

    I was told that once they actually start production on the M it will be out fairly quickly. Most of the parts are going to be the same, at least that i what I believe. As soon as they get done with all the caliber conversions and building the new stock i would expect to see an M, at least within 6-8 months afterwards. There should be no worries of getting on before another AWB.

    I believe the M is coming out before the PDW.

    Trouble is, I keep finding other things to spend money on while waiting.

    I'd advise RA to make a strong push to get things out before people start getting their welfare checks in May. What's more american than spending $ on American built guns?

    Alex actually said they were closer on the PDW, only because it required shortening a few parts and testing. I think they need to take their time on it and make it a true PDW. I think we will see the stock by April or May and the M by Christmas time. Of course, if I was good at speculating I would be in another buisness.

    Now it begins? I've been checking robarm.com (and the XCR page on the old robarm.com) daily for 2-3 years waiting for news on the XCR-M. I'm ready, too. I've been ready!

    The XCR-L was never very interesting to me (caliber selection-wise). But now, of all things, I'm starting to think that the 6.5 might be the best buy, especially with the 7.62x39 being an easy conversion.

    What do we think the XCR-M will offer that other .308 makers aren't offering? What will the barrel swap allow us to change to that's extra special or that isn't a bit redundant? The 6.5 options with similar case lengths are interesting, but they fill a similar role to that of the .308.

    The XCR-M may suffer slightly simply because the .308 actions haven't seen the bloom of interesting cartridges that we've had in the last few years for the STANAG envelope. I'm not at all implying that it won't be a stellar gun. It may very well be the best .308 autoloader out there. But as far as barrel swapping goes, I think it may be more of a niche gun, at least for a while.

    To me it would offer the same allure as the 5.56 version: If released now, it would be the only SCAR spec .308 rifle in the world.

    Man I have been waiting along time for this rifle. I really want one so I can hunt with a "black" Military rifle. As I live in Canada and you can't use an AR-10 or any variant to hunt with. I also have been waiting for my 5.56x45 XCR and should have it by mid may. Such great items take so much longer to acquire in Canada.

    I've been interested in the XCR-M for a few years also. In fact since early 05 when I got my XCR-L and had a conversation with Alex about the 6.5 and an adjustable gas system. The problem is that it is taking so long that the SCAR is likely to be out by then, and if it is, the SCAR gets the cash. It's FN and made over here, what could possibly be better?

    RobArm is great but updates take forever. I agree with va-plinker, Alex needs to do a big push to get some of their new updates/products out before the faithful become the faithless. I've spoken to a few people who bought the M96 rifles and some like it but hate RobArm for supposed broken promises. I'm hoping that it won't happen again.

    Terra, you do a great job and are probably the most important asset at RobArm.
