I hope that there aren't any other changes... That way they can get the ones done that they've already promised :p

Guys:

Thanks for your support. Here's a roadmap of what we have coming.

1) 6.8 Rifles and Kits will begin shipping the week of Nov 12.
2) 6.5 are testing well and we're putting them into production immediately in an 18.6" length, 1/9 twist, chrome-lined. Initial shipments could be as early as the end of December.
3) We're waiting on C-Products for the 7.62x39mm mag which is supposed to be done next month for the 7.62x39mm.
4) We also are shooting a .300-221 today. It uses your standard AR-15 mags and the 5.56 bolt. These barrels could be available shortly if the demand is sufficient.
5) We redesigned the fire control (trigger group) components but have not built a set or tested them yet. It's a while off but all data suggests that it would be a much better system for target shooting - a much lighter pull and a short reset. We'll build a few and get some tested by you experts before beginning production.
6) XCR-PDW We should be able to offer a shortened version with a shortened upper and 10" barrels at some point soon.
7) The Ultimate stock. We're still working but making progress on a folding adjustable stock.

Most of the items 1-7 are done or nearly done, so we're starting the XCR-M .308. Which will be our focus for a while.

Good to hear Alex. I'm most anticipating the 7.62x39, pdw, ult stock, then 6.5 in that order.

The idea of a suppressed xcr in 300 whisper is really cool though... :)

Alex,

My SBR paperwork should already be at ATFE. If you need a Beta tester on the new upper I will volunteer my services!

It will be rough but I will do my best :)

Terra: "We do not have a PDW model."

Caller: "Yes you do! I saw one of them there picher of one on your web site."

Terra: "We do not have a picture of a PDW on our web site, I'm sorry but..."

Terra: "Well, um...he's not... ummmm... Yeah we got em. I'll sell you one foooorrrr....$65,000."

Caller: "How much!! how come so 'spensive?"

Terra: "We made them exclusively for Delta Force and Navy Seals, and a few for mall security. Cash or money order only. Waddayasay?"

$64,995.00

Somehow, when it's 5 cents cheaper, all of the sudden it's a reasonable price.

You mean 5 bucks, not that it makes much of a difference when you're talking that much money...

seriousl tho, is there any reason why a pistol version couldnt be made. If one were to register a lower as a pistol then let the end user decide which barrel length they wanted. as long as teh gas system wasnt mucked with it would be fairly simple provided the factory cooperated
