DESCRIPTION
1
The XCR is truly a unique rifle. It was designed from the
ground up to have excellent ergonomics, accuracy, durability, reliability, and modularity.
Ergonomics. The XCRs controls were designed so that the
operator can manipulate them while keeping his eyes and
sights on target. The controls are ambidextrous and intuitive. These ergonomics give the operator a crucial time
advantage when loading, changing magazines, or clearing
malfunctions.
Accuracy. Though not designed as a match rifle, the XCR
delivers great accuracy. Its fully floated barrel combined
with a light two-stage trigger make consistent accuracy
easy.
Reliability and Durability. Most rifles developed in the
west are based on Eugene Stoner’s AR-15/M-16 rifle. The
XCR has more similarities to Mikhail Kalashnikov’s AK47. The XCR operates via a heavy duty, piston driven, rotating bolt combined with a strong extractor and solid ejector. These elements result in excellent reliability and durability.
Modularity. The XCR is truly a modular rifle system. The
XCR has a serialized lower receiver to which can be added
a variety of upper receivers accepting barrels in lengths
from 7.5” to 18.6” in many different calibers. Its quick
change barrel system allows caliber and/or barrel length
changes in minutes. These features allow the XCR to be
quickly configurable for any mission.

Gas Adjustment
The Rifle is equipped with a adjustable Gas Adjust Valve. The purpose of this device is to optimize the system for certain ammunition
and for certain environmental conditions. The Gas Adjustment
Valve has six Settings: Off (marked “0”) and 5 other settings. The
detent determines which setting the valve is on with “-” being the
GAS ADJUSTMENT
14
lowest setting and “+” being the
highest setting. Rotation towards
the “+” indicates a higher setting.
Rotation towards the “-” indicates a
lower setting. The first two settings
(- and the one next to it) are typically used for sound suppressors, and
the other 3 to adjust for ammunition
or environmental conditions.
Changing Gas Settings
1. Unload the Rifle according to Pages 15-16 and use the Bolt Catch
to hold the Bolt Carrier in the rearward position.
2. Depress the Gas Valve Detent with the tip of a cartridge while rotating the valve to the desired setting with the rim of another cartridge
as shown.
3. After you have rotated the Gas Valve to the desired setting, release
the Gas Valve Detent.
4. After releasing the Gas Valve Detent, you should not be able to
rotate the Gas Valve.
Break In It is recommended that the gas setting be left the “+” setting for at least the first 100 to 200 rounds.

base of the next round in the magazine. The Bolt strikes the body of
the next round but does not chamber it.

far enough for the case to hit the ejector. Consequently, the empty
