I have a very early XCR-L( serial number starts with 00) and would like to modify the trigger and the gas system. Does RA make kits for that and where can I get them?

I've got a spare trigger group in my parts box. Lightly used. $85 shipped. It's the hammer, trigger and disconnect. The original springs will work. I think I've got some spares of the springs as well but need to check.

What do you want the new gas to do? Generally the early barrels (type 0) are over gassed when people have swapped the blocks out. RA used a larger gas port on the early rifles. Most of the guys that went to the finger adjustable block(type 1) ended up having to run it on setting "S". The low profile dial (type 3) was supposed to restrict the gas enough that they could help with the early barrels but I think the type 3 is still on the over gassed side, even on a newer barrel.

You can easily swap out the gas block and the piston head to make the conversion(or a whole new op rod). It may be beneficial to keep the old gas block and op rod as a spare.

I recently sent my XCR Mod 0 back for an update. It now has all the Type 2 trigger and bolt group. along with the Type 3 gas system. I also updated the stock. It turned out awesome with a very reasonable turn around time and cost. I would highly recommend you sent an older XCR back to them for the factory upgrade. Here is the result.

If I may ask, how much did they charge and what was the turn around time?

For all they did it was under $800, about 60 days turn around time. There is a whole list of upgrades you can do, just email and they will send you the information. I highly recommend it.
But at that price point, unless you paid under $1K for the original rifle, it doesn't really make sense.

Thanks, something for me to look into.

I was very pleasantly surprised when I took my newly upgraded XCR to the range. It functioned flawlessly and was point of aim point of impact. I was hitting a man-size steel target at 400 yards standing off hand with the iron sights. That is plenty good accuracy for a combat rifle. Thanks to the crew at Robinson!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
