I'm curious, has anyone had any experience with these, what are your impressions. This is another "falls through the cracks" gun for us in the PRof Canada. I'm leaning toward a SIG.
could somebody pass the Prozac

I'd go with the Sig. I'm not a fan of the RobArms M96's. I'm obsessed with the 550 series Swiss Arms rifles. They rule all.

Since you guys can own SIG 550s up in Canada, I say get the SIG. The earlier Robinson M96s had problems (i.e. poorly designed trigger group....prone to breakage, carrier tail recall, new op-rod upgrades, etc.) It's best to avoid the earlier production runs. If you still want a M96, insist on the newer production guns with serial numbers starting with the prefix "RA". On the other hand, the M96 is one of the very few 5.56mm rifles/carbines whose receiver is made from stainless steel. When the gun is working right, it is a smooth functioning, accurate weapon.

 Agreed.  the newer production, the better.  If you're in the mood to wait a bit, RA should soon be completing their latest bolt/cam pin mod that will totally solidify the system.  I have an M96 and it's a really great BUT it has taken a while for all of the necessary modifications to come on line.  Go to M96.org for more info.  There's tons info on the subject.
