XCRTM FAQ ANSWERS
What does "XCRTM" stand For?
We're not really sure. It could stand for "eXchangeable Caliber Rifle"; or, perhaps, "eXtremely Cool Rifle"; or, maybe, "eXraordinary Combat Rifle". Maybe it has all those meaning.
What is the Price of the XCRTM?
We haven't finalized the pricing yet. It will be another week or so.
When will the XCRTM be available?
We plan to begin shipping in December 2004, or January 2005.
Is there a waiting list?
Yes, we have begun a waiting list. As soon as we finalize the pricing, we will ask for deposits.
Why is the XCRTM the best combat rifle?
We have combined the lightness and ergonomics of the M16/M4 rifle with a bolt and operating system which are much more durable and much more reliable than those of M16/M4. Additionally, the XCRTM has completely ambidextrous control.
How can I order?
You can call our sales department at 801-355-0401 M-F between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. MST.
Is the rifle piston driven?
Does the rifle have an adjustable gas system?
The Adjustable Gas System will be an option for an additional charge.
What kind of bolt does it have?
It has a bolt with larger lugs to handle the greater forces produced by the 6.8 cartridge. Bolts based on the M16/M4 cannot handle the forces like our bolt.
Where is the charging Handle?
The charging handle is very much like that of the FAL. It is a non-reciprocating handle located on the left side of the rifle.
What is necessary to convert the XCRTM from one caliber to the other?
Only the bolt, barrel, and magazine need to be change to change calibers.
How long does it take to change calibers?
The caliber change can be accomplished in less than 5 minutes.

What magazines does the XCRTM take?
For 5.56 NATO (.223 Rem.), M16 magazines can be used, including the drum magazines like the Beta - C mag.
For 6.8 Rem., a special 6.8 magazine must be used. M16 do not work well with the 6.8 ammunition.
Are the barrels chrome-lined?
We will be chrome lining or using a new plating which is superior to chrome.
