The 6.5 Creedmoor seems to be getting a lot of love going into 2017 with a variety of guns and ammunition products being introduced for the caliber (such as this and this.) One of the latest is the XLR-20 rifle from 2A Armament.
Not much information has been released about the XLR-20, but it appears to be an extension of the company’s XLR-18 rifle in .308 Win. What has been released is that the is an AR-style, semi-automatic rifle that makes use of titanium for various parts including the X4 muzzle brake, the low profile gas block and the pivot and takedown pins.
The X4 muzzle brake is made by 2A Armament and sold as a separate product for people looking for something different on their rifle. It is said to provide a softer recoil impulse than its competitors through a two-chamber design that also helps to reduce muzzle flash. Sold alone, this brake has a $149 price tag.
Additionally, the company stated the rifle will use its Xanthos-lite hand guard that incorporates M-LOK accessory attachment points. Also available separately for $264, the Xanthos rail weighs about 10 ounces and is made of 6061 aluminum.
All of the rifles are said to be hand built and test fired. The suggested retail price on the XLR-20 is $3,329. When additional specs and photos are available on this gun, we will post them up.
