Not since about 2014, lol.
OK, I am ready to take down all the orders in one place, so I can update everyone that wants one and figure out how much material I need. If you want one then follow this link, [email protected]
cut a paste this in your heading XCR FCH and in the body tell me how many you want and what your address is.
Do all that and I will have you down. I'll let you know when it is time for funds.
Yeah...sorry man. Mountain Man just didn't make a bunch. If they'd retained the regular knob's FBA, I probably would have bought a bunch.I figured as much. Searches were turning old posts.
It worked fine...no FBA though and though I've never had to use the CH as an assist on any of my XCRs to get the BCG into battery, I'd still want that as a feature, so I never bought one.Did this design work? Any feedback?
Is there a high enough interest in this to do more?
Has anyone ever approached RA about this modification/change?
Yes, it will work on an M. No, you'll lose forward assist.I wrote to Mountainman directly with some questions about function and availability of his folding charging handles. He appears to be quite busy (who isn't?) and failed to answer a couple questions. I was hoping this forum could fill in the blanks for him.
Will this folding charging handle work on an XCR-M?
Was the forward assist addressed?
He said he will begin working on them "next month", which should be July or August of 2021, depending on how you look at it. Look forward to it.
Frankly, he's been delaying doing another run for quite a while and there's definite interest. In this situation, I'd say the early bird catches the worm, but that's just me.Yeah i saw that. I messaged him to see where it was at and if he wanted help with manufacturing but havent heard back yet, and i was hoping someone could confirm the status so i didnt step on any toes. Thats not my style. If hes not going to pursue it, I will because i want one.
On ARs, doing a chamber check, I've 'needed' them if I wanted to do it more quietly than re-racking the charging handle. And from my understanding....that's all they were ever meant to do.10s of thousands of rounds and I’ve never needed one. Ever.
