    Gas block question

    I have and older xcr with the old gas block and trigger. Ready to have upgrades done on my rifle I've gotten a little confused....How many gas block upgrades have there been? I notice the pics on some new rifles and the gas block seems to be sticking out further.

    Besides a new gas block and trigger upgrade anything else I'm missing that is new or considered an upgrade?

    Any info on this would be great! Thanks!

    The upgrades are as follows:

    hand adjustable gas system
    ambi safety
    ambi trigger
    new 1pc Bolt hold open

    They have also came out with a micro and mini XCR. What your seeing is a XCR Mini with a standard length gas system to try and save a few ounces

    They should have an ambi mag release out to the public soon. They released it at Shot 2010

    I think the old one was ambi too. The new trigger is the "enhanced" version meaning it is a lot better than the old one.


    What happened with the lightweight piston idea? Have any shipped?

    Makes it sound better when you call it an "Ambidextrous Match 2 Stage Trigger."
