I've seen several pictures of XCR's that have a different lower. The trigger guard is much like the magpul winter trigger guard and is built into the lower. When did this happen?
I'm surprised there wasn't an official announcement from Robinson regarding the new lower.I understand them not telling us about it till release,as a surprise or whatever,but why not at least tell everyone what you did,some people still aren't aware of it.
So this begs another question:
What else did RA do to the lower? I'd like to get one so I can see for myself. ;D
Yes but I meant an official announcement on the company website to inform all those who don't some to this forum or haven't found it yet.You don't remember all the teaser threads and pics Terra put on here? She led us on for months about the new lowers.
I have both styles (it's on the stock btw, not the lower).According to Terra they are no longer putting a sling eye on the rear of the (lower?) receiver.
I completely understand why you didn't release it that way.Demand would simply outrun supply even more so than it already is.My point was it is a good selling point and makes sense to inform new buyers of improved features.I know you aren't having trouble selling rifles.I just thought it's more great features to add to the already long list of great ones. ;D ;Dwhat difference would it have made? Everyone would have wanted a new lower, and Alex doesn't want us selling off all our receivers. We figured we'd just leave it as a small surprise.
I like it because it works better with gloves on. I don't care about "asthetic enhancements" so much as I like "functional improvements".I've never seen what all the excitement was about with regard to the MAGPUL ENHANCED TRIGGER GUARD!!! (other than that is it made by Magpul, and it is ENHANCED!!
Now the gapper on the other hand is a real enhancement, and costs a lot less than a Magpul enhanced trigger guard.
