    I'm trying to narrow down my next rifle purchase. I was set on a DSA SA58 .308, but now I'm intrigued by the Robinson XCR. Does anyone have one of these rifles or have any knowledge of them, especially regarding quality? I understand from their website that they have "extruded aluminum" uppers. Will this be a problem? Any info would be appreciated.

    I have one and think its great. I really like the fact that its a multi-caliber platform that's piston driven and has an adjustable gas system. Mine is surprisingly accurate, I have the xcr-l in 5.56x45. If you have any questions feel free to send a message.

    Thanks, Anthony. Glad to hear you like yours. I'm leaning toward the 6.8 SPC version now.

    The FN SCAR uses an extruded upper. Not a problem.

    Lots of info on XCRforum.com if you're looking to do some research.

    I am very happy with mine

    I have one at love it.

    I would like a SCAR as well, but at the rate the prices are going, I will have another XCR first.

    They are great guns. Took the best of the AR and the AK and put it together.

    It also has the best features of the FAL in it: Bolt catch, charging handle, similar operation of the gas system.

    Very true. Good catch.

    My go-to rifle for anything and everything is my STG58. I love that thing.

    If you do a search, you will find a heap o' high praise in many threads on the XCR.

    Holy moly! Just found a couple XCR's in a local gun store -- one 5.56 and one 6.8 -- but they want $2395 for one!

    Is it just me, or are the gun shows really taking advantage of the Obama gun-control scare to gouge us? Whatever the market will bear, I reckon.

    Looks like I'll have to go for the DSA after all, even if I have to wait several months to get one.

    Thanks for all the replies, guys.

    Holy crapola, I thought it was bad when I paid $1,800 plus with tax for the XCR bout 5 months back - I must just slipped in barely under the radar before the frenzy was in full force.

    I got mine in January for about $1600 all in. I had no idea that they were going for this much. Order direct from Robinson, and get it shipped to a local FFL, Robinson have "normal" prices you'll just need to find one to shoot first to find out whether you like it.

    My personal experience with the XCR, and Robinson is awesome, Terra Rocks!
