    Hey, new here

    Hi all, I came here to get more info on the Robinson XCR. I'm especially interested in this platform for 762x39, 545x39, 6.5 & 6.8. Cheers!

    Welcome bro. You're in in right place. We have more info collected here than anywhere else and unlike robarm, we generally reply to inquiry.

    Do you already have a rifle or is this you hunting down the maiden voyage?

    If you can't get the info you need, here. You're going to be SOL ;-)

    Welcome and ask away. I have all the calibers you mentioned, except 6.5. I shoot 7.5 to 16inch barrels.

    Furthermore, if we insult you it's better than being insulted by RA.

    Fully informed: know that it's a boutique gun...very little support from the factory, though great vendors like Kermit and Nate make up for much of that. Very simple to diagnose and work on this platform...but....order lots of spare parts and parts kits. If you like to shoot cheap bi-metal bullets...the bolts will hold up just fine, but bbl life will be abbreviated so stock up on bbls too. Keep in mind that being a boutique gun could (but likely doesn't) mean that Robinson Arms could go tits up leaving you with no support at all. Personally, it's my favorite platform and I have plenty of spares for that reason....though I'd always like to have more.
