Kolob/Alex stated so on arfcom. This is his exact reply quoted verbatim:

-------------------------
Yes, we're doing development work which will allow us to do a XCR-M 308. It will be the best .308 available. Not much heavier than the 5.56 with exactly the same ergonomics.

We'll use a lot of the same parts for the .308. It will be about the same look and feel. I will use the SR25/DPMS mag.

Our immediate focus is more caliber and barrel options for the XCR-L. It's a much better platform for multi-caliber than anything out there or anything planned.

Sincerely,

Alex J. Robinson
Manager
Robinson Armament Co.

Cool,

I'm really excited about the XCR-M in .308. I wish we could get some photos of the mules. Terra has said that she is going to take some photos of the new stock design, I will like to see that too.

I can get these mags at a reasonable saving over 44MAG.com

Do you think many poeple will want them early? I think I would like to get a confirmation from Alex that the "DPMS LR-308" magazine is going to be "The One" before I invest too much into them. If I can also get an idea on numbers that people might want them, and how many, I might be able to shave a few cents off the price I already have? ::)

I suspect you'd sell quite a few of these once the XCR-M comes out.

I have probably 15 or so already but will get more once the XCR-M comes out. The magazines are listed as 20 rounders, but in reality, until they're well broken in they are 19 rounders.

When new, getting the 20th round in is impossible. Once well broken in, the 20th round can be used. I leave my new ones loaded at 18-19 rounds depending on how many I can get in for a month or so when I first get them. This helps when using them for the first time, then eventually, you'll find you can get the 20th round in there.

When the XCR-M comes out I'll buy another 5-10. That is once I get my XCR-M.

I'm very pleased that Alex is going to use the KAC/DPMS mags. The original KAC magazines are very expensive though so the DPMS are the way to go.

PM or email me with your price for the DMPS mags. I'd like to know.

NO problem with the e-mail. If I can get an idea on quantity I will be able to get a bulk discount that I will be willing to pass onto my fellow forum members.

Yeah, DPMS originally listed them as 20 rounders, but like I mentioned, they aren't 20 rounders until well broken in.

So DPMS decided to list them as 19 rounders to stop all the support calls, at least that's what they told me a few years back.

The fact is, they will eventually become 20 rounders once the springs take a set and you use them a bit.

Hey Aussie, I would order about 20-25 before Hillary gets in (hopefully NOT). Also don't forget about the 762x39 mags. You can count me in for at least 4-5 a month. You can never have enough mags I say. ;D

I'm either going to buy a MASADA or the XCR-M.

I know i'd rather have the XCR-M as it would site quite nicely with my DSA FAL, and i've already got too many 5.56 rifles.

One recomendation though is to go with a regular AR style trigger, It will be much less hasstle for you. Everything else, just upsize baby! Looking forward to it.

GO ALEX GO

Just got a reply back from Larry Panka of CProducts.

Stainless steel AR10 magazines are in the works, but no ETA. If they're priced similarly priced to the M14 magazines they're going to debut, that's a good third off of the DPMS price.

I'm going to hold out for CProducts mags as my #1 position, with cash on hand for DPMS / Armalite mags as my #2 position.

Need clarification, AR10 magazines are for the Armalite AR-10.

KAC/Stoner SR-25 and DMPS do not use AR10 magazines. DMPS magazines are for the LR-308 and are interchangeable with the magazines for the SR-25 although much cheaper than the KAC magazines.

The KAC SR-25 magazines are supposed to be the best and prices reflect this at approx. $100 each. The DPMS LR-308 magazines work fine in the DMPS LR-308 rifles but some have had slight issues ussing them in the SR-25. Slight mods may be needed to get them to work in the SR-25. Nothing major.

Anyhow, AR-10 magazines are only for the Armalite AR-10 models and will not work in the DMPS or KAC SR-25 rifles.

So, when you reference AR-10 magazines do you mean magazines for the AR-10 or really magazines for the LR-308 series rifles?

Hmmmm.

Maybe my memory isn't what it used to be, but I'll recount this:
I was talking to Alex, and he said the XCR-M was going to use the AR10 mags because he didn't want to relegate folks to the expensive SR25 mags - and that the two were different.

I thought I recalled him saying that the DPMS mags would work in the AR10 though - that's why I said what I did.

I do know I remembered him saying that the mods on the XCR-M lower would be a cinch, so he could offer a lower for AR10 mags and another one for SR25 mags. Dunno if he's going to do that in the end-game or not though.

FWIW

Hmm, then that's the confusion.

Alex needs to clarify if the DMPS LR-308 / KAC SR-25 mags are going to be used

<OR>

Is he really using AR10 mags (aka Armalite mags).

These magazines are not compatible with each other.
