Are they still around? Im not looking to buy one or anything just curious what happened to them and what people thought of them. Outside of the Scar (mostly the .308 version) the other rifles from the militaries botched m4 replacement test are kind of dead platforms it seems.
Heres the wiki page on them if you dont know who they are.
I still get there news letters/ e mail and they were at shot show 2018, so they are still around.
They even offer 224 valkyrie models now.
It’s just hard to justify the $2000.00+ price tag when I just got a new CZ BREN new in box for $1500.00. Just to name a few in the same piston Carbine realm.
The XCR seems like a “SCAR-minus” to me. I don’t know if it has the track record to warrant it’s price. It could b perfect, but I haven’t heard enough to drop that dime on it. I think the big draw for it is the plug-and-play customization, but if you want completely customizable, the AR has cornered that market.
