    Barrel tool storage

    So I've always been annoyed that the XCR didn't come with a place to store the 1/4" allen wrench (hex key) or that they didn't use a bolt with a lever mounted to the head so it could be done without tools. After lots of searching I finally found the following.
    America Grip Tools - https://www.americagrip.com/tool-gri...t-four-colors/
    They hold the 1/4 allen wrench on your hand guard so you always know where it is. I will state after purchasing the kit that comes with some star, phillips, etc. drivers, you don't use any of them on an XCR so just skip the tools and get only the covers.

    I personally don't see any need for a "lever" or a tool kit. Torque it correctly and you shouldn't need to fuck with it in the field.

    not about field maintenance, it's about having more than one caliber of the multi caliber rifle and wanting to switch it up while taking the minimum amount of stuff. Wrench, bolt, barrel, mag, ammo. That's all

    You still have to pack a bolt and bbl. What's 1 hex wrench that's not stored directly on the rifle as well?

    Not busting your balls....just don't see it as such a big deal that I need to add an "accessory" to the rifle just to bring it along.
