The XCR was conceived during the latest joint product between ECHO 1 and renowned gun maker VFC and is possibly one of the most intelligently designed AEG rifles you can find today.
The real steel XCR is produced by US manufacturer Robinson Armament based in Salt Lake City, UT and is one of the few truly modular assault rifles currently on the market. These rugged rifles are designed with a quick change barrel system which allows it to be transformed from snub nosed CQB to long barrel DMR in a few short minutes. They can also be converted to use up to five different calibers in just as little time.
This airsoft replica does justice to the versatility of the real steel by also offering some of these very helpful and innovative features. For example, if you need to take out the barrel for cleaning or inspection, simply take out one bolt and the whole barrel group slides cleanly out the front of the upper receiver. Its gearbox is also a one of a kind two piece design which allows the upper cylinder assembly to separate from the lower section so you can perform maintenance or upgrade the spring without needing to remove the lower gearbox from the receiver. However, despite its unique design, the internal components of this gearbox are still compatible with most V2 parts.
Externally this rifle is everything we have come to expect from VFC quality. The upper receiver is especially impressive since it is CNC machined from a solid block of aluminum. The lower receiver is machined from aluminum as well and features finely detailed Robinson Arms trades milled into the left and right of the mag well. Also, the entire rifle is finished in a wear resistant Mil-Spec anodized coating so it will stand up to the rigors of field use.
The ergonomics of the rifle were taken from the M4 so the rifles feel and controls are very similar as well as being compatible with M4/M16 series AEG magazines. The side folding skeleton stock is extremely solid feeling and is equipped with a comfortable foam cheek rest. Other features include a functional bolt catch, uninterrupted 15 inch optics rail along the top of the receiver and three shorter 6 inch rails integrated into the handguard.
You can power the XCR with either a small stick Lipo which can fit inside of the rifles upper receiver, or a larger brick Lipo which can be housed in the included PEQ-15 battery box. Using the recommended 7.4v 2000mah Lipo battery the XCR pumps out a sinister 1,000 rounds per minute at 350 fps. Thanks to an extremely solid barrel group the rifle produces an extremely tight shot group and is effective out to 60 yards away.
Comes with: PEQ-15 battery box (battery not included), low profile vertical foregrip.
