Well,

I took my new Baby out for it's first outing today. What can I say.................... Wow! It's even better than I imagined it would be.

I took some photos for you all to share. This is my Baby, just sitting there waiting for some action:


Taking these photos I was getting excited! The business end of my Baby. Not the end you wanna be looking at, if ya can see me when that light is on!


My Baby from the other side:


My first 4 shots were fired from about 50 yards, and was low about 9 inches and right about 4". A slight adjustment and my next 3 shots were on center and about 8" low from POA. Another slight adjustment and I was on center and about 4" low of POA. Not bad at that distance for a rifle set up for CQB.


These shots were a combination of 50 yard shots (low ones) and the last 8 shots at 75 yard aiming center head.


These next shots were taken at about 75 yards onto another target standing. POA was center head and center mass. The results speak for themselves:


The last photo I thought I would throw in. I set up a sheet to catch the brass. All empties landed on the sheet. I was impressed!


All in all, shot about 100 rounds (I had some fun at the end!) using Federal American Eagle 55gr. Flat based HP. The trigger was great! Crisp break and it felt around 7 to 8 lb pull and it will only get better. Thanks Chuck at RobArms, you did a wonderful job with my Baby!

Summary:

On gas setting 4 I had: Fail to feed issues = None! Fail to eject issues = None! Customer satisfaction = 100% and the Aimpoint M4 = Fantastic!

Roy, is that the 12" barrel? It sure looks like it could stand to loose another inch. I guess I will call them and get the scoop why it should be that length. I still want to cut about 4 rows of rails of the upper and make it the PDW but I can wait for Robarm to come out with it.

BTW, it does look very nice. I need to get off my broke but and go see the sheriff for a signature.

aziator,

Yes that is a 12" barrel. Iasked if they could chop it to 11 and they stated that they would only be confortable with the 12" barrel. I didn't press the issue, they said it was something to do with the gas system? Perhaps there would be a reduced pressue in the barrel if another inch was chopped off, but I knwo prizm's SBR XCR is an 11" but that was done after factory???

I'm happy with it, perhaps when I get the short barrel for the 7.62 x 39 I might be able to talk them into an 11" because it would have more pressure?? ;D

It shoots very, very well for the length barrel and has nice tight groups for me. I consider myself a combat style shooter and I'm not into putting 10 rounds into the same whole. My reasoning, why devistate the same organ more than once when there's lot more just next door ::) Thanks for the positive comments guys.

Nice report. My computerized calibrated technosavy finger also tells me the pull is about 8lbs. I am hoping it gets better. Right now my XCR feels like a DAO (double action only) Sig. :)

Eric,

I have worked with RobArm and I am trying their trigger mod where they insert a set screw into the same hole that the grip screw is screwed into. This is something like our friend Bill does, but not to the same extent. It reduces the trigger travel, and takes out "most" of the two stage trigger. It has left me with more like a "Glock" trigger than a DAO Sig trigger. I am quite pleased with it and hopefully it should get better still.

I will find out more information on the mod. and post it if you like.

sweeeeeet...

glad to hear you like it (not that I'm surprised) :p
just wait until you're done with break in and turn the gas down to 2 or so-talk about smooth :D

btw, I think 1-1.5" needs hacked off too ;)

also, what flashlight do you have on there?

magik,

It's a Pentagon MS2 light. Output of LED white light is 100 lumens, it's very bright!

This thing was throwing the brass so far and so hard I was tempted to turn the gas down a notch anyway, but I resisted. More range time today when my buddie 1redgmc has booked a shoot. I told him to bring his check book as I know he will want one! As for the barrel, I can see another one inch coming off the barrel, but you couldn't get another half an inch on top of that. Thanks for the comments.

Roy I already replied once with compliments on your beautiful new XCR, but it has left such an impression that I am now using the top photo as my desktop wallpaper. Hope you don't mind. Nice Fall picture I think.

I would also be interested in the set screw mod instructions if you have the time. Thanks!

I hate the idea of giving the BATFE $200 for a right I already have, but this set of photos has pretty much made me decide to go ahead with the SBR as soon as I can scratch up the disposable income. I may wait and do this to the 7.62 X 39 XCR. Great pictures Roy. Absolutely SWEET! >:D

That Bi-Pod is a "Tango Down Advanced Combat Bipod" and is very well designed and built. It won't live on this weapon, I just put it on there for zeroing of the sights. I' might save that for the XCR-M in 7.62 Nato ;D

I took my new SBR XCR back out to the range again today to let my friend 1redgmc have a shoot. Well I will let him post his comments on my rifle, but again it work flawlessly with another 100 rounds down range. I was even thinking about dropping back the gas setting to #3 as the shells were being ejected a good 15 to 20 feet from the shooter.

I am continued to be impressed by this rifle and it's performance. I want another XCR in 7.62 NATO.

Thanks for looking, and thanks for the positive comments.

Before I traded off my XCR I switched to gas setting 3. I liked it more than gas setting two. The increase in recoil was barely there, but it made feeding and extraction better and more reliable with all types of ammo
