    Greetings fromVancouver Island, BC CANADA via MONTANA USA

    Hey guys, very much a noob as far as the XCR goes. I just picked up an XCR-L non pre-Key mod gen and am looking forward to putting it though its paces. I have been reading and seeing a lot of reviews on the XCR and it's reliability issue (ie. FTF) so I am hopeing that I am an exception to the rule.

    I'm an AR guy and run a DD Mk18 as well but as I live in CANADA now I thought I needed a rifle that I could take out into the bush and didn't need big brother watching over me and since the SCAR is not an option here it was a toss up between the XCR and ACR. A great deal came up so the XCR won.

    Hope to become as much of an XCR fan as you guys ...

    Welcome!! Most of the reliability issues were worked out pre-keymod versions. It is going to depend on how early a model you have.

    Welcome! Hope it works well for you. Try to find some of the Robinson pistol marked magazines so you can have some 10 rounders.

    FTF was never a problem. Failure to feed is almost always a mag problem.... Failure to fire....wasn't even a problem when firing pins broke.

    FTE....was a problem with XCRs with tight chambers or ones that were undergassed for whatever reason. That seems to have been sorted for 7-8K additional S/Ns.... (We're now in the 11K range IIRC).

    Thanks Sean, I'll have to check my serials tomorrow. But put about 200 rounds through her the other day and no issue at all!
