    Used XCR in 5.56, a wish since i was a kid!

    About a month ago I was able to grab a used XCR in 5.56 for just a little over 700 after taxes. I recently took it to the range and loved every second of this rifle! I'm still learning about the rifle through Robinson's website and the forum. Pics are in my house, I apologize for the terrible lighting in advance, but if anyone can help identify exacts about this rifle it would be well appreciated!

    Last but not least, the Bolt, Carrier and Piston.

    Lower is a "second" gen. Originals didn't have the integral trigger guard. Things missing from the most current spec: Ambi mag release, type 2 carrier and possibly the latest BHO but I can't tell from the pic. None of those are show stoppers by any means.

    Upper is a "first". They started doing the full pic rails in the 6-7000 range I think. You've got the "light" piston, latest is the one piece (yours has the welded foot). Type 1 carrier and bolt.

    There are "upgrades" but if it shoots fine, I'd ride with what you've got. I'd have no problem paying $700 for what you got.

    Congrats on your Xcr and welcome to the family....

    You will get a lot more help here on the forum than you will ever get at the "official" Robinson website......

    Ya, at $700...that's a great deal for what you got. I'd probably leave it alone...it also has the enhanced trigger at that SN....unless you just want more ambi features. Might grab a one piece op rod as a spare since welds have broken...but extremely rarely.

    Wish I could find deals like this. I've got a friend who's been looking for a deal like this for years.
