Well here it is a new Robinson XCR for those that dont know what it is is its a gas piston driven hybrid carbine kinda AR kinda AK and kindal FAL. The barrel and bolt can be changed out in under 2 minutes and fire 5.56-6.8 or 7.62x39 rds. There is a 9 week waiting list for this Carbine.
It is a very nice well built gas piston weapon IMO yes it is a better rifle than the AR. For Numerous reason. For a very basic one there 1500.00 for a nice one like mine about 1700.00 plus all the extras I put on it.
Well mine is the XCR H-bar and is 5.56 caliber with YHM flip ups front and rear. I have now added a YHM aluminum Vert Grip a TLR2 laser light and the Eotech 552 AA. You can buy a basic one for 1500.00 but I suggest you spend the bread and do it right. To duplicate this rifle you would spend right at about 2500.00 for it with all the addons I have but its worth every penny.
If the ban goes into effect next year this rifle will double or triple because there arent very many and a lot of them have been going to Military Contracts leaving a shortage to the public.
