    Barrel question

    I just picked my XCR today and can't wait to break it in. It's been a long 6mos. Just curious, is there a way to know if got the lite or heavy barrel? I did not see any markings. Either way, I can't wait to head out to the range. I've been stocking up on ammo and magazines. This is my first rifle. I'll be heading down to Md. this weekend to zero in my sights w/my cousins with there rifles. I've shot rifles and shotguns before and I own a HK USP45 compac and USP 40. Also, I know I read this somewhere before but I'll ask again or if you can direct me to the site on the forum, what I should do prior to going to the range and what tools I should have with me. Appreciate all your input.

    Also, you can tell if you have a heavy barrel by picking it up. If its heavy, you have a heavy barrel. ;D
    Seriously though, if the barrel has a noticeable contour along the lenght after the flash suppressor it's a light barrel. The heavy barrel will be more or less the same thickness throughout. Thats the best way I know how to explain it. Also, the XCR beside the XCR Forum logo at the top of this page appears to have a light barrel. Notice how the barrel is contoured after the flash suppressor.

    the heavy barrel has a "step" in it, towards the front, and is very thick.
