Been lurking around the forum for several years since picking up my XCR-L back in 2016, for some reason never joined as a member, so I rectified that today. Wanted to drop in and say hello to everybody and introduce my little friend.

Very cool. Is that 5.56 heavy barrel on the gun?
It is 5.56, but honestly not sure if it's a heavy barrel. I bought this one second hand (very few rounds through it at the time) and can't remember what the specs said. I mean...it definitely has weight to it, but haven't had another barrel or rifle to compare with. Is there a way to tell?

It's a heavy. Looks longer than 16" too, but may just be the angle of the pic. Is it and 18.6"?

How can you tell it's a heavy? I'm guessing there's some way I'm missing. You are correct on the longer barrel length. I've been meaning to get it chopped down and have my BE Meyers 249F pin and welded.

I believe it's a heavy barrel from the pictures, I've got a light barrel and heavy barrel, looks too thick to be a light.

^This. It looks too thick to be a light. You could mic it or put a tailor's tape around it for circumference and I could tell you for sure.
