    Well, fellas, here she is...

    My XCR-L in 5.56. She weighs in at a chunky 12.45 lbs / 5.66 kg. But hey, real guns have curves, right?

    XL093xx serial, she's undergone a few different setups so far, but the current is definitely my favourite. Dlask adapter, Mil-spec buffer tube, MFT Battlelink stock, Magpul MOE grip, Vanguard Equalizer Pro 2 bipod, Tri-Delta muzzle break, and Weaver Tactical extra high rings holding on the Blackhawk 4-20x50 scope. Picked up the scope at a very reasonable price, and am thoroughly impressed so far. FFP, etched glass mil-dot reticle, 30mm tube and excellent glass to boot, can't ask for much more than that.

    And without further ado, enjoy the gun porn.

    Side note to the above, I'm also extremely happy with the muzzle break. A few rounds down range and you can really see that it's doing its job!

    Wow, that is one heavy 5.56. Looks really nice though. After seeing all the damage M193 can do out of a 20" bbl to AR500 plate....I'm more and more interested in longer bbl options for this caliber. Makes a bullpup design make that much more sense.

    Heavy indeed. Carried it for a few hours while coyote hunting last week, and about two hours in it was definitely taking its toll.

    I haven't done any real measuring as far as the accuracy is concerned, but may in the near future. I wouldn't be surprised to get MOA results out of the heavy barrel, though. Out of the few factory loads I've used so far, my most consistent results have been from a 75gr BTHP, which I had originally assumed would be too heavy for the 1 in 9 twist. Just another reason to never assume, I suppose.

    Beautiful. Boy that weight adds up. Must be a soft shooter though.

    You bet. Actually snapped a quick cell video of the recoil.
