    New to the Rifle and the Forum

    Howdy,
    I recently purchased my first XCR-M in .308 comp length in sniper grey. I can honestly say this is the most beautiful rifle I have ever owned! Joining to get the most out of my rifle, and advice on optics, scope mounts etc... I am an American Living in Canada, and this is the go to choice for a non restricted(no registration required, can be used for hunting)(10 shot magazines available) available in Canada.(if you can afford one, 3k-4500 in canada)

    cheers
    Arkem

    Most likely.

    The sentiment makes me want to stock up on parts, just in case ... or drop the platform and move to what? XCR is all we have.

    Regardless, it's always good to have a spare small parts kit.

    Most of us have done the same in terms of stocking up on parts. I have a ton of spare parts and even "spare rifles" if you will.

    A lot of the people that left the platform did so b/c RA doesn't appear to be a stable company and frankly, the owner has said a lot to damage the brand. Again, without Canadian laws that restrict just about everything else, RA likely wouldn't survive. In a world of ARs that are $400 (and very good ones are $8-1100), an $1800 rifle had better deliver something extraordinary versus its competitors. While I think it is in terms of design (not really accuracy though)....many do not. To be fair though....the XCR competes more against other top tier ARs or "next gen" platforms like the SCAR, ACR, MCX and Bren....and they are priced close to if not a little more than the XCR. With the current climate of cheap AR prices though....I wonder how well any of these are doing now comparatively. With the drop in demand and lower prices, it doesn't appear they are moving much inventory.

    Most people dropping the platform have gone back to the AR....though people drawn to it are often AK guys (due to the simplicity and similar bolt/piston design) and probably go back....at least that's what's been said by those who visit after an absence.
