We're really wanting to get sales going. Lately it's been a bit slow, and we're hoping to step up production. So, if you guys know anybody that wants an XCR, spread the good cheer. We can take whatever you dish out.
And did I mention... the 6.8s are only a few weeks away? We've been taking orders for them...;)

A few people that I've recommended the XCR complain that it's not available in a more powerful caliber and until then they will look elsewhere even though they are impressed and really like the XCR platform. The 6.8SPC will help in this regard but it's hard to find ammo in this caliber and it's really expensive. I think if you guys really want to get sales up you're going to have to release the 7.62x39 kit, whatever it takes. Ammo is very cheap and plentiful in this caliber and is much more powerful than .223 for personal defense (for when the SHTF). Don't get me wrong, I love my XCR, it's a pleasure to shoot. But with the .223 round it's limited to current/ex-military folks and hobyists. An XCR in a cheaper and more powerful caliber I think will make it more practical as a multi-purpose tool.

Hey ... I'm doing my part

Have had an XCR 5.56x45 on order for a month+ in 18.6" heavy barrel.

Also have put off purchase of Saiga 7.62x39 for the impending XCR 7.62x39 conversion when it comes out.

So that's a definite 1.5 XCR rifles for me.

If you come out with a XCR-Medium in 7.62x51 I'll probably get that one too.

BTW - Lex is right, the 7.62x39 conversion is more important to me than any other except for maybe a 9mm or .22LR conversion, neither of which are even on the drawing board at the moment AFAIK. Like Lex mentioned the 7.62x39 would sell quite well due to lower ammo costs right now, but if you wait too long and the surplus 7.62x39 dries up like all the other surplus in other calibers then your sales will be affected drastically for the 7.62x39 conversion.

.22lr would be excellent!

Ammo is cheap and it's great for small game hunting. That's another conversion kit that would sell well I think. Although I think a Ruger 10/22 has already cornered the .22lr market for semi-auto rifles. I would still buy the conversion kit for an XCR though :-D

Hey, ::) What about a .22 magnum, Ruger discontinued their 10/22 Mag semi auto, and the only other contender is the Remington 597, and that's quite expensive (I know I have one!)

I gotta say that I personally think the 6.8 was a mistake marketing wise. with the ammo being of limited availability and $.65-.80 per round it would make more sense to go with the more shootable calibers if you need to sell quantities. Dont get me wrong the 6.8 is superior ballistically all day long and i would move to it if ammo were closer to $.40-.50 per round, BUUUUT until then it's 7.62x39, .308, 5.56, and .22.

speaking of which In the tactical carbine classes I've taken, A .22 conversion has worked quite nicely for the AR/Ceiner equiped guys. with ammo costs shooting thru the roof, a great option might be a simple (yeah I know :-\ ) .22 long rifle, magnum conversion of some type that allows the normal manual-of-arms to be used. that might sell well.

so heres my list of desires
1-spare parts kits
2- .22 conversion and mags
3-7.62x39 conversion and mags
4- XCR heavy in .308
5- IF and ONLY IF 6.8 becomes resonably priced the 6.8 kit

my .02

Start selling factory 7.62x39 SBR XCR's and post lots of pics with every toy in the world strapped to it. The faster you're able to differentiate the XCR from garbage like the SIG 556 the better off you will be. A carbine length 5.56 XCR has to share the playing field with the horrid SIG 556, and every off the rack AR15, but none of those guns can turn into a CQB SBR in 7.62x39 in 2 minutes. You have these features, so show em off more.

I hope Alex will see this thread, a lot of really good ideas in my opinion.

preach it brother! ;D

I want the 7.62x39 conversion so bad I can taste it... 5.45x39 would be sweet too...

Hey, to get sales up a couple of things could make me jump right now and buy:

1.) Give me a 7.62x39 conversion or complete 7.62x39 upper kit to buy and I'll jump now.
2.) Give me a 1:7 or 1:8 or even 1:9 20" to 24" stainless bull barrel 5.56x45 and I'd be on that right now too.
3.) Give me a .22 conversion, I'd be on that like flies on well you know.
4.) Give me a 9mm conversion and I'd hit it immediately.

Any, or all of these would illicit immediate sales from my end.

OH ... AND

an XCR-Medium in .308, oh yeah, I'd be on that like Speed Racer.

And XCR-H in .308 is pretty much a must once SCAR hits town. Hopefully Robinson will build it around a DPMS magazine, because they are cheap and awesome

I have tryed to get people interested ,and they like the gun .But i have heard comments of wondering if a small company will be around ,parts ,field upgrades . Some who have bought the FNH 2000 ,are wondering if FN is going to do the same thing .Not that FN is going out ,but they may discontinue the rifle because of poor sales.

If the Fs2000 gets pulled it is because FN thought it was smart to ass rape their potential customers on price. Anyone with a brain knows the FS2000 doesnt cost what FN expects to be paid, they are just using civilians to recoup the R&D cost associated with the OICW failure. The FS2000 is a $1700 weapon tops in my eyes, and the sudden dramatic price drop at some dealers proves this.

I reload so a 6.8 SPC is what I wanr now.
A .22 would be great.....
A 6.5 Robinson Wharever would be on my list...
In a .308 I hope they choose FAL magazines, they work great and are cheap. I own 2 FAL's and have over 20 mags laying around.
I have two cases of 7.62x39 and two cases of 5.45x39, plus probable 4,000 once fired 5.56x45 (.223). I mostly use the 5.56 brass to convert them to 6mmx45 (6mm/.223). If you don't reload yet, you should try it. You CAN duplicate factory ammo, and at times beat it. Saves a heck of a lot of money too.

Remember folks....Alex is like the bandmaster, if one subcontractor screws up he gets the blame. I have several friends who would buy, but NOT in 5.56. We, the ex-military, have a distinct dislike for this rabbit round. Multiple hits are great, but they should not be required. Multiple hits on a deer are pretty much impossible so my XCR stays in the safe until it shoots ammo that is up to the task.
