That probably isnt the best place to get answers to that question, but some of the posters seem to be calling it right.

If a new shooter gets an XCR first, they will probably see little incentive to getting an a traditional gas powered AR15

How that ARFCOM thread made me dumber today:


  • [li]The XCR is more complicated breakdown process than an AR15...Umm what...

    The AR15 has QD barrels just like the XCR. All you need to do is buy a new $900 upper

    The AR15 has equal ergos

    Being able to use the charging handle while maintaining a cheek weld isn't much of an advantage. Unless you dont want to lose sight of your target or tie up your hands

    The XCR bolt design is not better[/li]
    [li][/li]

Once again ARFCOM proves it is full of more idiots than any other place on the internet.

Yep they enjoyed trying to tear up my posts. Why on earth you would want to buy an AR and then spend thousands more trying to make it what the XCR already is I'll never understand. :duh:

I "grew up" on Barfcom when it first started many years ago. After it started getting bigger and bigger had so many sub forums it'd take a week to find what you want I said the hell with it. I mostly post on Sigforum.com I like Sigs but the people their seem a lot more level headed and not as OMFGBBQWTF ARFCOM! I can get all my news, laughs, gun porn pics, and all that on one 40,000 member forum.

Only thing I use arfcom for anymore is to place WTS ads.

I threw something on there.

I agree, the EE is about the only thing worthwhile anymore.

It kills me that some people say they don't like Alex's politics and say that Alex is anti-gun (because he supported Romney) and because of that they don't like the XCR. ARFcom is retarded. Yes it is too big to do anything but list stuff on the EE. :puke:

I jumped in... some real BS being slung on TOS.

I will be the first to admit that Alex has said somethings that has rubbed me the wrong way... but the XCR is what it is... a well thought out and solid performing rifle platform.

And since confession is good for the soul... I will also admit one more thing... Alex was right about Mitt, he would have made the stronger candidate.

Hmmm. Typical ARFCOM XCR thread.

Crazy that the people that bash it all seem to have watched someone have problems with theirs or held one in a gun store once. I rarely click on any threads there that have XCR in the title anymore.

Nooooo! Nooooooo! AR is better! XCR will be dead in a few years! BWAAAAAAA!!!! BWAAAAAAAA!!!!!!

Damn I hate ARFCOM. I'm so glad I got banhammered form there. I found excellent sites like this on and ar15adviser.com.

I personally think alot of these retards are simply jealous that they don't have the sex in metal that is the XCR.

There is no helping those guys. All they do is speculate and regurgitate.

I just wasted 10 minutes of my life reading that. It's just based on opinion and SOME experience... Mainly that individual's experience. I didn't read anything that damning of the XCR, just seemed like some uniniformed people for the most part. I think if you shoot them side by side for 500 rounds each, the XCR is clearly different in a good way. But beyond that there is familiarity and pride involved... And people's pride can get hurt. Now that being said I did order a LWRC PSD 6.8 the other day...

RA needs to petition one of the video game folks or a movie company and get the XCR some free press, then everyone over there on barfcom would want one.

There isn't anything wrong with the AR and there isn't anything wrong with the XCR. Get what you want I say. At the end of the day you'll defend your own reasoning for doing so just the same as the next guy.

Do the endurance test, add an AR in and see where the AR fails compared to the XCR. Then watch them come up with excuses.

Back to back 5-10,000 rounds each. I'll bet a DI AR starts to fail after less than 1000 rounds. Cycling failures around 800 rounds most likely.
