    XCR Caliber 6.8

    This is my first post, hopefully I do it right.
    Terra (you seem to be the go to girl from what I have read) I have decided to purchase an XCR in 6.8 SPC. The shops here in Arizona you have listed don't seem willing to deal with Robinson Arms. I am not discouraged though. You should be contacted soon by Bear Arms in Scottsdale. I have purchased many firearms from them and they always treat me right.
    Can you tell me what kind of wait there is for an XCR 16" heavy barrel, folding stock, no sights, muzzle break not permanently attached, no foregrip option?
    Thanks,

    mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm......................... I would estimate about 8 weeks. I will have to confer with They-Who-Turn-The-Barrels, but that's a rough estimate for now.

    Thank You!
    A rough estimate was all I was looking for. I think I waited longer than that for my DSA SA58 Tactical. If it is worth having it is worth waiting for.
    Thanks again!!!!

    It is definitely worth the wait.

    You will love your 6.8 XCR, beats hell out of the mouse caliber 5.56/.223 any day. :2cents:

    Thanks Aziator & Gunner69 for the encouragement!
    The rifle was ordered today so I am pretty excited. I have already ordered some accessories.
    If the XCR doesn't get here soon, I will have to wait longer..............

    Can't beat the price of the Ammo through. 5.56 for plinking, target shooting and the 6.8 for serious stuff.

    Hey RC 20, When they have the 7.62x39, that would be a more potent "target" load. In fact it would be sufficient for deer in close. > :2cents: ;D

    Thanks,
    I saw a complete 6.8 XCR yesterday. Why wait 6-8 weeks when there is one sitting a shelf with your name on it right now and ask for Tim.

    V,
    Thanks for the heads up, unfortunately I cannot follow up on the offer. I work with a great gunshop here in Arizona that has always treated me right. They ordered the 6.8 for me and sent a check to RA without a deposit from me. How about that? I am a loyal guy supporting the local shop so I can not throw them under the bus. I will wait patiently and pick the rifle up when it comes in.
    When I lived up in Vancouver, WA the gun shop up there ordered an Armalite AR30 in 338 Lapua for me without a deposit. I purchased many firearms from him as well. Those are just a couple of examples of treating a customer right and in return getting repeat sales.
    I am sure that Gallensons is first rate also but I must "stick to my guns"! (pun intended) I wish I could afford another. While checking Bear Arms in Scottsdale to see when the XCR would be in I put a deposit on a companion piece [ S&W 1911PD Scandium 5" Barrel 45ACP]. See how that works.
    I love America!
