Walked back to the house after shooting a few mags, laid the gun on the bench and no safety :duh:

I'll give them a call tomorrow.

Come on RA. I want an XCR soooooo bad but darn, all sorts of minor problems coming out.
In that case you can't possibly own any firearms since there isn't any in existence that didn't have at least a few bad apples in the production line. In this case we don't even know what caused the problem yet.

I haven't had any issues with my XCR whatsoever.

theliberating1,

Had you ever taken the safety apart? I would imagine that the allen bolt has an initial torque spec and or loctite and if you took it apart and didn't duplicate the factory assembly, then that might explain why it came off.

I've had the best luck with service with PM'ing Terra through the forum as she usually takes care of my issue the same day.

Call or pm Terra, she will help fix the problem. Might be a nice time to install their ambidextrous safety. Nice upgrade. Good Luck. :2cents: P.S. To date I have had no issues with my XCR. ;D

gunner,

Do you have ambidextrous safety? If so, how much was it and does the right side lever rub you hand when shooting?

I personally don't have it, but if I had the problem described, I would be calling Terra and buying one. ;D Two fixes.... at one time. :2cents:

Hey Martens... no I haven't touched the safety. I'm not bashing RA at all, but I also received my rifle a year ago without the "stock tightness adjustment bolt"... I think someone was a little spacey on assembly day ;) I love my XCR like no other rifle I've ever owned... even with these minor problems. Long day at work so I had no chance to call and probably wont be able to tomorrow either. Thanks for the heads up on the ability to PM Terra, will do.

Wasn't trying to bash ya, just thought it might have been a logical explanation. Definitely PM Terra. Heck she's even responded after normal business hours.

Oh, I WILL HAVE AN XCR. I just want to see these problems that are coming out resolved, and the rifle really take off. Ok, and perhaps I was a bit unfair in my post, I gotta admit, have had to send a few ARs back to the manufacturer due to mis-indexing of the front sight post, something that should have been taken care of before it left.

captain,

for the record, never heard of a safety arm falling off until now ;) we take care of all the little stuff as soon as it's brought to our attention. you will be okay buying one if you want one. :)

Don't worry Terra, from what I have been reading here, I can tell you folks really TAKE CARE OF YOUR CUSTOMERS. I got another couple of months to go with paying down a credit card, then I will be placing an order. Heck, I even have my local FFL already set up with you. When I order, will let everyone know.

as a note to anyone and everyone...


the screws that hold on the little safety arms are loctited on. it's really not common for them to ever come loose... if you are concerned about it, you're welcome to re-loctite it over and over and over.


another note...

when installing pistol grips, make sure you put the new one on correctly. nine times out of ten if your safety stops working after installing the grip, you put something back on wrong. take it apart again, and put it back together. i've seen three cases of this ;)

Good thing the Ar15/M16 was flawless when it first came out.... NOT!!!

Talk about a gun with issues... Half the cool products out for the Ar15 are to fix Minor problems with the Ar15. Plus look at all the small parts that need to be replaced on it to keep it running. Military says an Ar15/M16 bolt should be replaced every 10k(more often on short barreled versions). And dont forget about gas rings and extractor springs.


Don't get me wrong I have 2 SBR Ar15's and love them... I accept them with the faults they have and keep lots of spare parts around. No rifle is perfect but the XCR comes very close!!!


Note: another Ar15 invention to cure a problem by a good friend of mine.

John Noveske's Switch block with 3 gas settings to cure over gassing on an Ar15 with a can.

Well that is innovative as hell................. only you are STILL pissing gas into the upper/bolt area. Which is the first major problem, the second being the 5.56mm caliber. :2cents: I think Aussie Roy said it best "FAL (.308) one shot one kill, AR (5.56) one mag one kill. :duh: I like being humane, and drop the target with one well placed shot. >:D
