I always wanted a Robinson Arms XCR and even wrote my congressman when the XCR was disqualified from the SCAR competition because of missing blank adapters when they were delivered (standard M-16 adapters). So, two years ago I decided to bite the bullet and buy one. Like any gun purchase I took the time to research it thoroughly and that meant talking to owners of the weapon in question as well as test firing one if possible. One owner I found through my local gunshop was willing to let me shoot it when it came back from being repaired in 4 months. 4 MONTHS!!! I asked what that was all about and he told me to go to the Robinson Armament support forums before I decided to buy an XCR as he was already second guessing his 2 month old purchase. After reading Mr. Robinson's own posts on a few of the AR forums and his company's support forum I realized he is a raving egomaniac. Based on his forum posts he obviously thinks that supporting any issues with his guns is an "at my leisure" type of situation. Again, this was 2 years ago, so maybe he has mellowed in that time (or hired a PR person).
