I have not seen it yet, but my FFL has received my new XCR. One question he had for me was "where is the caliber marking on the receiver?" I assume that his eyesight is as good as anyone's and that the XCR does not have a caliber marked on the receiver, b/c it is a multi-caliber rifle. Is this correct?

If your are curious why I am asking, it is b/c here in Hawaii we are required to declare to the local registration authority the make, model, caliber, action type, barrel length and serial number of any firearm coming into the state. If the local registration authority cannot see the caliber markings on the firearm, they will require the FFL to apply them with die stamps or an electric engraving tool.

So, does the XCR have caliber markings anywhere on the rifle?

You my friend, have a problem. The receiver DOES NOT have a caliber mark on it, but neither does a Remington 700, a Ruger 77, or a Savage bolt rifle. The caliber is on the BARREL where it is supposed to be. Terra, at Robinson, needs to post here on how they handle the "Hawaiin Problem." The barrel marking IS under the handguards, so is not readily seen. I suggest you have your local gunsmith, or you can do it yourself if you have the dies, stamp the caliber behind the muzzle break. Your local "dumb f**k" at you registration office will be sure to say it is not in compliance if he can't see it without removing the barrel. Add a new caliber, stamp the new barrel. ;D

Damn,that blows.I thought the XCR caliber marking was on the barrel behind the flash hider anyway,At least I'm pretty sure that's where mine is.Dang it,now I have yo go look cause I'm curious.. :-\...well anyway if you are required to mark the receiver I would make sure whoever does the work is qualified because if they bunk that up you will hate yourself for it,because it will look hideous.

If you have to have the receiver marked i would strip that puppy down and send it to Orion Arms for engraving. As for the barrel, am pretty sure the caliber and twist rate are shown right behind the flash hider on the bottom side.

There would be no reason to mark the caliber on either of the receivers, as the rifle is caliber-interchangeable, and only the barrel and bolt make the caliber. We used to stamp the barrels right next to the gas block - now they should all be stamped right by the muzzle.

HI law would trump the ATF (they can add to the requirements but not take away), but IIRC the ATF specs the only thing required by law to be on a receiver is the serial number. The barrel can be stamped with whatever information the manufacturer needs to. You see this on shotguns mostly. It also has to be in a visible location as well so engraving under the pistol grip or other hidden area is a no-go.

Thanks, all. I received an e-mail last night from my FFL that said the rifle is ready for pick-up. I assume that means he found the caliber marked on the barrel near the muzzle and that this marking will satisfy Hawaii law. I will pick it up on Monday and see what he found.
