Alex may not have the best net discussion skills, but he builds a great gun. The XCR in no longer being considered for the SF weapons system. FN got the contract, go figure.
But that said the rifle is very impressive in several ways. It is a real shame that it was given a raw deal by USASOC. Alex's new head of LEO/Mil sales is also a real no shit kind of action guy. In addition to being a firearms instructor for several big schools out here in the west he has seen his fair share of foreign badguys.
