I got my XCR few months ago, but finally got some time to shoot it for the first time last weekend.

I ran into one problem. When I shoot the rifle, the trigger doesn't go forward all the way, holding up the hammer from shooting the next round. Two, things that fixed it in the field was; 1) manually cycle each round with the charge handle 2) use the safety selector and switch between safe and fire.

Anyway, I returned home to clean and function check the rifle and I found the problem. When I hold the trigger down and cycle the weapon, there was no click sound when I released the trigger. Turns out the hook at the top of the trigger is holding up the hammer where it aligns with the hook of the trigger (sorry I don't know the names of the parts :-[). I put some CLP on it, but I'm thinking it needs to be polished. I'm not a gunsmith so, I'm a little afraid of voiding the warrenty. Robinson what's you take???

Asides from that, the weapon shoots great.

Dry fire 50 times, add a couple of drops of CLP, rock and roll...

ditto. Hand cycling almost always cures trigger hangups. Usually we gently touch things up with a file, but every now and then a shop noob misses one. If hand cycling it 50 times or so doesn't cure it, very, very, very gently touch up the hammer sear surface with a file. GENTLY. Or else you'll end up with a hair trigger and other problems. :duh:

If Terra's suggestion doesn't quite do it, take some fine sand paper wrapped around a small file and polish the very front ramp of the hammer where the disconnector rides and gently round the sharp 90 deg edge. Another thing I do during trigger work is to polish up the disconnector hook as well.
