One of our SCTP team ladies is getting a Syren XLR for Christmas.

Any tips on cleaning/maintenance to keep it performing in tip-top shape? She'll probably shoot 3 to 5k through it by the end of summer.

Hi Pintailwizard,

Fabarm has a video on cleaning and maintenance on their website. Since it's essentially the same gun that video should cover what she is looking for. Here you go.

Get rid of it! I've had mine since August 2016, I have ran about 25,000 rounds through it and it has been at the gunsmith three times.

Tips: clean the gas chamber about every 200-300 rounds, it will quit cycling, get a ultrasonic for your parts makes cleaning the gas parts much easier, have spare o-rings, run it dry otherwise it will quit cycling, I have to do a complete tear down clean every 1,000 rounds so mine will keep cycling. Needless to say I'm in the process of buying an O/U.

Also do not shoot it in the rain, it WILL quit cycling, to much build up in the receiver. And yes I do try to keep it as dry as possibly if I have to shoot in the rain.

I am at about 8000 rounds on my XLR5 FR. Agree get extra O rings for the gas port area. Mine hasn't had to be replaced yet but is wearing. I apply a light oil to the O ring as instructed each time the barrel is removed.

I clean mine thoroughly every 500 - 600 rounds, this includes trigger assembly removal. Every shoot the gun gets a wipe down of the magazine tube and gas system. Slide bar gets a light oiling and the firing pin assembly gets wiped off and lightly lubed. Put a very thin layer of oil or very light grease on the barrel extention each time you remove it to make removal easier.

Live in Chicago and have shot this gun in rain, snow and sub-zero temps, -3 one day this January. Never had a round not go bang. Only issue I had was the -3 day on my first few rounds. The trigger would ice up. Figured this was from condensation forming inside the receiver. To keep this from happening I shot only single birds and didn't shoot for 10 seconds or so between shots so it didn't generate as much heat build up in the receiver. Once I did this no more icing. Hey it was -3, I was shooting so better then being at home.
