XCR Pistol

The latest addition to the XCR Weapons System is a pistol variant.


The pistol is based on the XCR Personal Defense Weapon and comes in Mini (9″ barrel) and Micro (7.5″ barre, pictured abovel) versions. Calibers offered are 5.56mm, 6.8 SPC and 7.62x39mm.

The price is $1500. This is the same as the XCR PDW, but it does not require a BATFE stamp of $200 because unlike the PDW, it is not a SBR (Short Barreled Rifle).

  • I am SURE that one will be California legal! NOT

    Anybody done any tests on this, with the various calibers listed? I’d like to know about the accuracy, recoil, any problems found, etc, etc.

    Seems to me to be (too?) short of barrels, even for these small recoil calibers. Just my $.02.

    I get a 404 for the link:


    Otherwise, nice “pistol”! 🙂

  • Mu

    No idea how much energy a 5.56 round has out of a 7.5″ barrel, but it for sure will be a mighty flash gun.

  • Nas

    Ooooooh, I want, I want. I’ll take the micro in 7.62×39. Talk about a gun that will get the gun grabbers in a tizzy, this thing just screams paramilitary.

  • Dave, link updated.

    I bet it is LOUD!!!!

    How does this compare to the PLR-16 (weight, etc)… other than an obvious increase in cost?

    And no love for 6.5 Grendel? 🙁

  • Brian Parker

    That is one terrible photo. I went to the Robarms website and it’s the same terrible photo! It looks like it was taken with a Maxwell Smart belt buckle spy camera.

    Photo looks fine to me. Plenty of detail with no obvious grain and just a hint of softness (could have used a tad of unsharp mask in PS). Only thing that might have been better thought out was the background.

  • Entropy

    How on Earth does this not count as a short barrelled rifle when the longer-barrelled PDW does?

    Is it so small that they can declare it to be just a pistol?

    • Entropy, because it is registered as a pistol with the BATFE. It cannot legally have a stock attached.
