This is one of the reviews that steered me into the XCR. I'm a couple weeks away from being a proud papa of one
I suppose he means is the absolute sense of free floated, which is something only a bolt gun can achieve. What is truly important is that the XCR isolates the barrel from the affects of a tight sling or resting the fore end on a barricade.His statement about the barrel not being free floated doesn't make any sense to me.
same here. most of the time i think gun mags are crap. have you ever seen a bad review? nope, and you never will. gun mags uses guns to sell mags, guns use mags to sell guns.This is one of the reviews that steered me into the XCR. I'm a couple weeks away from being a proud papa of one
Neither did Larry Correia in the SWAT article. It is unfortunate that RA sends the gun rags a rifle representative of what people can actually buy and they don't use it to its full potential. Meanwhile they post a glowing review of a 556 in a configuration that people can't buy and several reviews of the MASADA/ACR hyping many options/features that do not appear to be available from Bushmaster, not to mention the reviews are before the charging handle got moved into HK 91 territory.ya i remember that article... iirc, he never took the rifle off gas 4. That would have made his review even more positive.
+1 to that. Only problem is 99% of internet experts, which are also real life experts, have some kind of agenda in one form or another. They are all trying to sell something.Once I figure out someone on the internet is in the gun business, depending on the exact circumstances, I do start taking their opinion with a big grain of salt.
I agree with you there, I have received many free things over the years, especially being in the Army. I don't tend to pull punches as some of the gear I have tested could one day save or loose a life.I can honestly say that I have no agenda and will not Ho myself out to anyone. If they want to give me something free, so be it, but don't expect me to give a glowing review if it sucks.
