Robinson Armaments is coming out with a variant of their XCR-L line that they were displaying at SHOT 2019, the XCR-L Competition. The difference between this XCR-L and the standard line is mainly a number of lightening cuts that were done to the Picatinny optics rail, similar to many cuts done to AR15s in the competition world. In addition the compensator has been changed out for a sleeker version with 4 gas ports on either side of the compensator. The variant on display here was unfinished so future versions will most likely be black in color. Apart from some unique and racy color schemes and paint jobs, Robinson Armaments has usually not entered into the competition field with any of their rifles in previous years but this might mark a different trend if successful.
At the booth was Jalise Williams, who along with her sister is a top competitive shooter in USPSA and Multigun. She was using this particular XCR-L rifle while competing for various competitions. Jalise mentioned the lighter weight of the XCR-L as being very useful when competing in 3-Gun competitions.
