    Replay presentation

    Hello everyone, and thanks for accepting me in your forum. I live in Italy, I know little English, and use the Google translator. My hope is to understand something of what I read. ... if it is not slang!
    Finally, a few weeks ago, arrived in Italy the weapons Robinson Armament. This is the site of the importer: NUOVA JAGER - Firearms Manufacture and Commerce

    Just to buy Robinson XCR - L, just yesterday, I sold a magnificent FAL L1 A1 English.

    I read some reviews of the older version, and indeed, I was not very impressed. I hope that these new versions of 2015, have been eliminated small and annoying flaws of the old models.

    Greetings to all friends of the forum, Walter

    Welcome. The old reviews are outdated and many improvements have been made over the years. Barring bad examples slipping through quality control, the latest version should be fine.

    Welcome and I agree with fmunk.

    Are thre any restrictions on owning a firearm like the XCR and if so what changes have to be done on them? Thanks.

    I would say the XCR is the closest thing to a modern day FAL, but in 5.56. Welcome!

    Welcome, Walter. Where in Italy do you live? (When I was on active duty in the U.S. Army, I was stationed in Germany for 5 years. I greatly enjoyed my visits to Italy, for both work and vacation.)

    As others have said, the XCR-L now functions excellently. However, one thing I do recommend is that you confirm with your importer that Robinson Armament is truly committed to expanding into the European market. While the rifle is very reliable, if something does break, your only source for parts is in Salt Lake City, Utah -- and it may be difficult for you to send the rifle back for service.

    Thank you all for the warm welcome. You're right MJORIN, I also believe that the system XCR - L, is nothing but the natural evolution of the old and dear FN FAL.
    As I said above, I sold this FAL L1 A1, 308 just to replace it with the more modern and lighter XCR - L cal.223 Replay  presentation-dscf3206.jpg]

    @ WONBAT. I know the Italian importer for many years and I trust him, because he owns a workshop by gunsmith who has more than 60 years of history. I hope I never have needed him to order parts for the XCR.
    I know from experience that when ordering spare parts from the USA, it always takes a long time, plus expenses for international transport, most Italian customs fees, plus the VAT at 22% of value, plus postage Italian. All together, it becomes a beautiful blood transfusion!

    I do not know if I could buy in Salt Lake in Utah, because when I order components in the US, very often I can not, because the sellers do not have an international license to be able to ship in Europe.

    Wombat, I'm glad you've spent and enjoyed the beauty of Italy, so, I'll always have a good memory.
    I live in the Roman Castles, (Castelli Romani) which is about 40 km. from the center of Rome.

    In which the body of the US military have served?

    I asked Alex about this. He said that all distributors will be carrying extra parts.

    Although we don't have added expenses for international transport, most XCR-L owners in the United States understand that getting parts may take just as long as shipping them to Italy, and getting lost on the way to boot

    I've got to ask not knowing your countries gun laws, what kind of stock comes with the XCR in your country? (and if anyone read what I deleted, yes, I'm an idiot LOL)

    Welcome, glad you found us!

    The 12.5" barreled version at the Nuova Jager website looks awesome. I don't think they offer that one here. Which model did you get? Keymod handguard?

    Found an XCR video from Italy a few weeks ago and posted it on the forum. I don't speak any Italian so let us know what you think.

    Sorry, can't get the youtube video or the link to the forum thread to hotlink.

    I'm in the Army. (I'm not sure how Google translator renders that in Italian, but it's the branch of the service which is not the Navy, not the Marines, and not the Air Force. ) I'm in the Reserves now (meaning I'm a soldier part-time), but when I was on active duty I was in Europe for 5 years (in the mid-1990s). Twice, I had temporary assignments with the Southern European Task Force (SETAF), based in Vicenza.
