    Talk to Alex. He has one and is a good tech who should be able to let you know how well put together the internals are.

    If you really want to know and you can't get him to respond here (he's becoming less and less active from what I see) then make an ASM account and PM him there.

    i'm still around... LoL

    only problem with XCR is the common where to place the battery. i'm not a fan of PEQ's. it runs fine stock. AOE with stock piston is good, but needs to be adjusted with aftermarket pistons. the gun itself is very durable. my son dropped it, hit barriers, ran into wooden walls and smashed into other aeg's with it. no physical damage to it.

    running 16awg can get tricky. i found an expensive (pvc)16awg that is about as thick as 18awg. mosfets will fit inside the top receiver, but be carefull when closing it. edges on receivers are sharp enough to tear the wiring (but not dangerously sharp).

    evike has a good selection of spare parts. i replaced the folding stock with a buffer tube adapter. i have it wired to a crane stock.
