New guy here.... After doing my homework(and still am) I have been seriously thinking about the SIG 556,until I came upon the Robinson XCR rifle.
Im wanting some more opinions of this rifle from those of you who have one and can share their experiences from a "first hand" account.

I do know if I decide to go with this rifle, I DO NOT like the folding type stock, as I would want to incorporate a M4 type collapsible stock. Does the XCR come in that thype of configuration.

I have looked at the SIG as I have mentioned, the only thing shying me away from this rifle is the avaialbility of spare parts. Otherwise I would have already bought one. I have looked at the M4/AR platforms and I simply do not care for them at all.
I do like the Galil--but there too much for my pocket book and are hard to find.

What I am wanting is AK reliability with AR accuracy---is the XCR that rifle?

Coming from the AK school--reliability is #1 to me......but I am wanting something that has better accuracy too.

What about spare parts, service from Robinson, optional accesories for the XCR etc.etc..

Please tell me about this rifle PLEASE.................

Welcome, MIR.


I work with these guns every day, and I can tell you that they are pretty awesome.

We offer a spare parts kit, and I am always around to answer questions during the week AND weekends.

You can purchase your XCR with an M4 adapter already installed for you. We offer a VLTOR folding/collapsing or just collapsing, but if you want to get something else, we can accommodate you. The XCR is a great gun to own.

These carbines are truly great. My preferred carbine.

At this point, I've had failures to fire only when a dayglow orange dummy round was fed in (to practice malf drills), when I spanked the mag once, and for the first time this last weekend when I failed to seat a mag fully. Oh, and once I got a great primer strike, but the primer was dead (factory ammo!) so it went click instead of bang.

In other words, it fires when it should. Every time. I've taken it out to Gunsite for a CQB course there, and have scheduled to take it to a carbine course again this year. No worries.

I dumped 400 rounds through mine about as fast as I could get back on the trigger - well less than 5 minutes. No lube, no cleaning for over 2000 rounds. Lots-o-lots of usage. I kind of wiped the dirt out of the action (not really cleaned it) once during the CQB course, no problems.

Like you, I don't prefer the folding stock - but I'd recommend you look at other stocks besides the M4 type.

If I can help, let me know. IMO, spare parts are a touch over rated. If I need spare parts, something is wrong to begin with - and I didn't keep spares for my Kalashnikovs either.

I am on and off again with the folding stock. I am running it again right now as it seems to work better with my 3X magnifier. If you go with a M4 style, I prefer the fixed slider not the folder. The gun looks cleaner and I get a better index. I don't like the bulk of the collapsible/folder hinge.

The gun is awesome. I've shot it from 0 to 100 degrees, in snow and rain and never had a problem. To me, the best endorsement I can give is that I can have a department issued micro galil, an AR with 11.5, 14.5 or 16 inch barrel and I carry the XCR for patrol and Swat. It is reasonably weighted, utterly reliable and very accurate.

Can't really add much to what has apready been said. Mine has always worked when I ask it to. I haven't taken it to any classes and the army wont let me carry it at work but Mine still sees a lot of use and I love it. I like the profile of the tube stock and don't mind the folding stock it comes with. I think the new stock will be the one to have when it comes out.

I can't add much to what you have already told you.

Now my rifle has been broken in, and proved it'self 100% reliable after 600+ rounds, I too carry it as my patrol rifle of choice. Here's mine:




This is one great weapons system that is real easy to shoot, clean and operate, and comes with a company willing to "make things right" if you ever do have a problem.

All I can say is, you won't be sorry!

Welcome to the forum.

I love my XCR. I have used & abused it like I would never treat an AR. I has not failed me yet. It is my goto weapon. RA customer service is very good to excellent. I have some pic on the this forum with my m4 SOCOM stock from ACE on it. So just about any stock that will fit on a M4 will fit on a XCR. "Topic: New Pic W/ M4 socom stock and some other stuff" in the Gallery section. But I will post the pic below. I prefer folding/collapsing stock. As far as accessories goes, the sky's the limit. If it can fit on a M4 it will fit the XCR. Heck I put a bayonet on mine.

Oh yeah, did I mention it has AK reliability and AR accuracy. And coming in Feb. (order now) you can get the XCR in 762x39mm.

That means.

1-AK reliability :rapidfire: 2-AR accuracy :sniper: , & 3-AK hitting power :biggun:

What SIG556 or AR can top that. :dontknow: Case closed if you ask me.



Just my :2cents:
