    How does everyone feel about the XCR M? I’ve been doing some research and it seems like it would be a decent long range build and the interchangeable 308 and 6.5 barrels is a plus. I’m torn between the XCR M or the LMT Mars H. Ignoring the hefty chunk of change these two rifles are, which firearm is held higher in the long range community?

    >interchangeable 308 and 6.5 barrels is a plus

    Is it? Just about all rifles can interchange 308 and 6.5 barrels, the only difference is their cost and how easy/fast you can do it. On an AR, you can swap out uppers or swap out barrels. On bolt guns, you can swap out prefits or shouldered interchangeable barrels.

    >which firearm is held higher in the long range community?

    I don’t think anyone in the LR community holds the XCR M in any regard. I have never even seen one, let alone know anyone who has used one, let alone for anything long-range.

    A piston not-an-AR/AK-based gun with limited, proprietary, light contour barrels, short barrels, janky triggers, and a single allen screw barrel tension/retension…

    That is not a recipe for success in my book.

    >MARS-H

    This is a bit better. [LMT uses nice Rock Creek cut rifled barrels.](https://lmtdefense.com/product/mlk-mws-sniper-rifle/)

    But there are many other high end AR makers too and that don’t need proprietary barrels. [GAP makes a nice rifle](https://www.gaprecision.net/custom-precision-rifles/gap-10-g2.html) with a nice Seekins rail, Bartlein barrel, and SSA-E trigger.

    Hardly anybody owns an XCR let alone uses one for long range lol

    I would take the LMT over it without hesitation

    I would rather go to Seekins, JP, or GAP before jumping into such a proprietary system that doesn’t really offer any clear advantage over its competitors. The LMT at least has the L129A1 thing going for it as far as being a proven system.
