SOCOM Gear Lipoly XCR Battery

SOCOM Gear Lipoly XCR Battery

This is interesting, SOCOM Gear just developed a special lipoly battery for the Robinson Arms XCR AEG, which probably is for the Echo1 variant. This is guaranteed to increase your ROF/BPS by 150%, which we can’t say how much is exact count since we don’t any XCR AEG to measure here. Anyway, if you have an XCR AEG, then better hie off to your retailer to get one of these.

Echo1 USA replica of the Robinson Armament XCR

Life is full of little coincidences isn’t it? Having recently written a post about tactical AKs in which I mentioned the Robinson Armament XCR up pops a news item in all the major airsoft portals that US company Echo1 is to release an AEG version of this wonderful assault rifle.

The Real Steel XCR
Before you say ‘oh no, not another Armalite’ let me put you straight – the Robinson Armamant XCR is NOT an Armalite derivative! Cosmetically it is influenced by this American design, but the XCR is actually built around the Kalashnikov AK47 gas system!

Link to Wikipedia entry for the Robinson Armamanet XCRIn effect the XCR has all modern conveniences that contemporary Western military users want in an assault rifle, plus better quality control, a better calibre (*) and a slightly more economic features than the AK47/74 range. In short – or in theory – the XCR gives you the best of both worlds, Russian ruged reliability and American firearms quality.

The airsoft XCR
This replica is ‘made’ by US company Echo1 – now I say it’s ‘made’ by them, but of course – as we all know – Echo1 has in the past simply rebranded various Chinese AEGs for the American market. At this point I am not sure if this new AEG represents a real attempt at a truly American AEG or whether it is simply the latest offering from a company like DBoys which has the Echo1 logo pasted onto it.

I guess we will find out what the real crack is about who really makes this AEG when the XCR becomes available here in the UK, as we may find it arrives under the name DBoys – in which case, mystery solved!

But in terms of what the XCR offers airsofters this new AEG does give those of discerning tastes a chance to ditch the common and garden M4/SCAR/Masada formats and go with something a little more edgy. This is THE gun for the hardened ‘operator’ loadout – it’s just a shame Echo1 hadn’t had the balls to replicate a Russian 7.62×39 (AK) firing XCR, that really would have been something!

Above: The Robinson Armament XCR in 7.62x39mm. This does not seem to be a standard AK mag configeration though, so I suspect custom magazines must be used.

[*] The real XCR is available not only in 5.56×45 NATO, but also the amazing 6.8 SPR and even the good old Russian 7.62x39mm! However, in this airsoft flavour it is featured in the 5.56mm calibre so that you can use the abundantly available M4 magazines!

SOCOM Gear Robinson Arms XCR Preprod People Airsoft

More photos of the upcoming SOCOM Gear Robinson’s Arms XCR version from People Airsoft. As we suspect that this is now a pre-production version, the inevitable release of an alternative to the Magpul PTS ACR Masada is just near now. What we need to hear is pricing and ETA to prepare our meager airsoft budgets.

Robinson Arms XCR : nouvelles photos (Bis)

Commençons l’année dignement avec, comme promis, de nouvelles photos du XCR de la firme Robinson Arms dont la sortie a fait l’objet de tant de rumeurs en 2010. Réjouissez-vous, cette fois-ci semble être la bonne : nous n’avons jamais été si proche de la sortie ( toujours annoncée pour le 1er trimestre 2011 ). Pour éviter des problèmes, le nom du fabricant n’a toujours pas été dévoilé, d’après nos lecteurs il s’agirait très certainement de Vega Force Company (VFC). Notez la fidélité des marquages gravés. Crédits photos People Airsoft.

New Photo of the Robinson Arms XCR AEG

SOCOM Gear Robinson Arms XCR Proto People Airsoft

People Airsoft provides more photos of the upcoming Robinson Arms XCR AEG and this time it’s now a pre-production copy, and also means it’s nearing releasing. We expect a fully assembled and functioning unit to be displayed by the Show Show 2011. Something for those who want an ACR variant but would like to differentiate themselves from the existing Magpul ACR users.

"My sources have come through and provided pictures a more complete model, with an actual gearbox!  Unfortunately my sources has taken the utmost concern for safety and has further declined to  mention manufacturer or any other information but did promise more images to come soon."

Read more and another photo of the XCR here.”

People Airsoft SOCOM Gear XCR Prototype

Not exactly a rumour since reports have been going out since last year on the Robinsons Arms XCR AEG to be made under the SOCOM Gear brand as we have reported some details here. We are expecting a release of this AEG by the year’s end, but with the photo above, it means it hasn’t reached full production stage. Thus, expect the release by next year. Perhaps they would show a full working model during the Shot Show 2011.

Photo provided by People Airsoft, you can check more details about this at their website.
