    Left-handed XCR?

    A lot or research is starting to be released about LH shooters and the need for LH firearms. Specifically, the increase has been do to RH shooters that are left-eye dominant. I spoke recently to a gun builder / engineer at a rifle company, thus, my source of the information.

    It would be nice if the XCR was made in a LH configuration - imagine the competition to the AR for LH shooters.

    STAG is the only people that make them as far as I know. But would it be cost wise for RA to do it for a small % of people?

    I guess if it was cost effective there would be alot more makers producing the L/hand models, so to think a small company like RA could be able to do it, would be wishful thinking. :

    It shouldn't be hard to at lease add an ambi safety and mag release to the XCR, since those were on the prototype. I imagine the upper receiver would be more work, and probably wouldn't be necessary, as it does have a shell deflector and ejects forward.

    The Ambi Safety/selector is avaliable now as an option but the ambi mag release is still bring tweaked.

    Is it end-user installable?

    If so I'll have to order one.

    I honestly don't know but I don't see much involved in the installation of the selector switch. Give them a call, they are very easy to talk to. Tell em Aussie Roy sent ya!

    As long as you have a screw driver or hex key (depending on what grip/screw you're running) you should be able to install an ambi safety/selector. It is very much like the setup in an AR.

    Would an Ambi-Catch work in the XCR? Seems like a standard AR mag release.

    Robinson is currently working on their Ambi catch and hopefully will be released soon.
