Im still dumbfounded that he would think it was a good idea to send something like this out. I believe that this one post single handedly destroyed all of RA credibility. I believe 100% in the XCR platform and I will sing the praises of American made from the rooftops but this one post will be the thing that sticks in peoples minds forever. It's really too bad. I am an ARFCOM member and I regularly recommend the XCR and try my best to promote RA as a great American Firearm manufacture but every time I am greeted with Alex's own words.Maybe it would be worthwhile for some of the newcomers to read Alex's own words one of the last times he made a major announcement here to give some insight into how he runs things (might want to read the thread comments for the laughs too):
Dear XCR Fans: As usual I don't have much time to bother with these sites. We've made a lot of much need changes at Robinson Armament Co. Before I address the changes, let me put things in perspective. Robinson Armament could have made lots of money making AR-15 knockoffs. It would have been...www.xcrforum.com
Fourth, if you post a bunch of whiny petty negative stuff here or anywhere, I guaranty very slow service. I have made that a policy. Yes, we've made lots of mistakes with service but that is behind us.

I agree with this 100%. I long for the day when RA as a respected, productive, successful firearms manufacture. I do believe it can happen. I really hope it does. The people who own them love them but that isnt enough. RA needs a serious adjustment in PR strategy.So much to unpack here. Wish I had a keyboard.
RA can change. Problems would seem to be easy to identify, fix, move on to the next etc. It's not a question of CAN, more of a WILL.
