    I'd agree with all that.....

    On an SBR...maybe...b/c it fits tighter and has more adjustability. Suppressed would likely be of benefit to have Type 3 for similar reasons.

    Otherwise, Type 1 works just fine.

    After just going to the range and now cleaning. I miss how easy it is to clean the type 1 and 2 compared to the new 3. Unless I’m missing something the 3 isn’t as easy to clean unless you remove the barrel.

    And, I’ve now noticed my original XCR-L‘S barrel seems to be coming loose while firing. I think I’ve worn out some threads from removing the barrel too many times. So, I’m trying not to remove the barrel unless I really need to.

    Unless you use corrosive ammo, I don't think there is a need to religiously clean the XCR. There are people in this group who hardly ever clean their guns, and the guns still run.
    Fool-proofing serves only one purpose: identify bigger fools.

    Guilty as charged...I never clean mine....at most the bcg gets a wipe down and I might oil or grease it.

    At one time I decided to see how long it would take for my xcr to slow down or malfunction by not cleaning it. After 1800 plus rounds I just had to clean it it hadn't slowed down nomalfunctions no adjustment to the gas, and when I cleaned it I was surprised that it was nowhere near as dirty as I thought it would be. This is another reason I believe this is one of the absolute best rifles on the market
