That's nice. Nice paint work. 12.5" barrel?


Thank you.  It’s 12” or 12.5”, I don’t remember.   6.5 grendel

My current xcr sbr in 5.56 and have a x39 kit for it as well, no issues at all in either caliber, runs brass or steel, suppressed, no issues. This is the 4th one I’ve owned and the only issue I ever had was a bent hammer retaining pin.

I ordered this one a few years ago through Kermit Zahn, don’t mind the acr

I bought a  EXPEDITIONARY RIFLE from them back in the day, because it didn't look like same old tired AR15. face it, no matter what kind of crap you put on it, it's still looks AR15.  these  look  like the  STONER 63, which no other manufacture ever made

I ordered from Navalbeaver (little jack's) who I have done business with before. He already had a keymo grendel pistol on order, and I asked him if he had a quad rail upper lying around. Still took 12 weeks. (Worth it though)

So these guns are obtained from the website only?  

Got a few 5.45 AKs, an Adams Arms AR and recently a couple of Galils.  Debating if my first XCR should be 5.56 or 5.45.

That or from authorized dealers

I ordered straight from their website. Be prepared to wait for at least 14 weeks.

Two questions.

1.  Who makes the picatinny rear endcap/stock/brace adapter plate?

2.  Comparatively speaking, how is the recoil impulse on these?  Sharp?  Soft shooting?  I'm really looking for an alternative to my 7.62X39 bren which shoots VERY very flat with a dead air brake.  The issue there is that I dont trust the gun.
Link Posted: 11/21/2020 3:45:29 PM EST
I had the 5.45 and accuracy was a problem. They weren't sure why at the time but talked to Alex at the nra show about where they were at with it. Alex is a big fan of the 5.45 himself and he felt that the longer bullet was getting damaged on the way into the barrel causing the 8" groups.
they traded my 5.45 parts for 556 and I love this gun. also have the 7.62x39 conversion and will get another gun in 5.45 if they start up again. I bet they have a number of parts ready to go if it is as simple as the feed ramps being worked.

5.45 guns made sense when cases of milsurp ammo were cheap and easy to come by. But nowadays not so much.

They've posted videos of testing a 5.45 XCR with the intent to release. I emailed them and they said it's not ready yet, with no current ETA. I think reliable feeding from magazines was an issue.

I have lots of non-corrosive 5.45 stashed away. It was plentiful and cheap pre-panic and I'd rather shoot that than my 5.56, and I have quite a few other firearms that shoot the same caliber. Probably not the same equation for everyone, but it makes sense for my situation currently.

The XCR is the softest shooting platform I have ever tried, included in the Bren 2.

Believe it or not there is a rifle that shoots softer than the XCR, the M96.

They are very soft-shooting rifle. Less movement upon firing than my ARs.

My 5.56 was my designated precision rifle for awhile. .6" groups with Prvi or handloads, and it was easy to keep the scope on target to spot hits.

6.5 Grendel XCR. 2 8 point bucks in less than 30 minutes from the same blind.  Not monsters, but nice for this area.

I have the Lucky Irishman (linked by Longslide) is I think the most common. It's the one I run on both of mine, and while it's very nice, the anodizing is completely different from Robinson, and it doesn't quite match  the profile of either of the lower receivers i have.

But it works so w/e.

As far as the x39 and soft shooting, the adjustable gas, the heavy long stroke piston, and the long slow unlock make for a very very soft shooting rifle. I have the x39:

It's a joy to shoot, better than any AK I've ever used.

Downside is that the x39 takes those kind of goofy AR x39 mags, (and Alex R. seems very adamant that this isn't a problem) although I think a lot of the "issues" that these mags cause in an AR are mitigated by the lower feed angle of the XCR.

Not really...


I built a best-of the best carbon AR with all the go fast bits, adj. gas system, light bolt, geisele spring etc. for 2 gun this year. Shot a few matches with it and definitely got the result I was looking for. I took my XCR out of the safe, it's an original XXX serial number gun and I used to shoot the hell out of it but don't much anymore, mostly because I don't like the Mepro MOR on it for what it is supposed to do. When I shot it, the recoil was so low I thought something was wrong like I had a squib or something. Nope, it really is that soft-even without the $200 titanium brake and fancy shit that my AR has.

Really unappreciated guns, I abused mine to shit trying to get it to choke and it won't. I'd love another as an SBR but I can't justify it for the cost.

Considering the std L rifle weighs 7.5#, & the std M rifle weighs 9.25#, there shouldn't be much recoil.

Sorry, bumped the thread with a response to another comment.

Based on personal opinion and not experience, I would say 11 inch. But thats just because I feel like 11 inch barrels are about the perfect balance between too short and too long.

10-4.  My counter points being, that I dont believe 7.62X39 requires an 11 inch barrel for a full powder burn?  Someone correct me if i'm wrong.

I also aesthetically like the look of my cans right in front of the rail which the 11 inch barrel will not accomplish.  Yes, im vain! :)

I'm going to order one on monday so i'm trying to nail iron out the last few pieces of the puzzle regarding what I want.  Thanks to this thread, I'm going with keymod as I really like the profile of that rail option.

I'm trying to decide on what configuration I would want. I am between a standard with buried gas block and 9.5 inch barrel or a mini with buried gas block and 7.5 inch barrel.

I would like to get caliber conversions in the future so I am not sure what would be more versatile especially considering barrel lengths.

Go Std in my opinion--its its till very small---20" with a 10 barrel and the stock/brace folded.

Apropos of nothing, finally decided to try X39 subs in my XCR.

Without the can and gas at "4" (type 1 gas system) the mag will not lock back, spent cases dribble out.

WITH the can though, GAME ON. Runs great. I ran it last night and was like "Well that's not THAT quiet..." then realized I didn't have ears on and was like O SHIT.

Who needs 300blk? (Not me.)

(specs: Early XCR, Type 1 gas system, type 1 bolt & carrier, 7.62x39, 14.5 p&w barrel)
