I guess aesthetics mean nothing to them.

The 5x33LU is apparently the only decent scope that ATN makes. I haven't had any trouble with it, and I'd say it's as good as any other sub-$200 optic.

I have a little over $2000 in the M96. That's wth all three current configurations (Recon Carbine, Rifle, Bren (Top feed) kits). The stock is one of the modular setups from Ace (www.riflestocks.com) and is a bit pricey; $45 for the receiver block, $59.95 for the folding mechanism, $64.95 for the stock.

I wish I lived in a free-state, I shot one of the regular 20" BBLs, it shot pretty good.

Nice sniper rifle. Now you can accurately shoot full auto from the hip. Ever try shooting down an airplane with that?

Seriously, though, I bet you do get the first-on-the-block award with that!

You do realize that in this configuration it's the same length as a 16" AR carbine with the stock extended and only ~27" long with the stock folded. It's a nice, compact package.

Yes. Hence the transition (highlighted above). Very nice rifle. Can I have it?

can you fire it like that,? it looks like it blocks the ejection port.

I want something for my recon to keep the factory stock. Olive Drab

The ejection port is clearly visible in the third picture; the folded stock is offset just below it.

They should design a folder like this that clears the controls. They just look so much better and offer the same cheekweld as the regular stock.

Link Posted: 9/14/2004 4:58:23 AM EST
what do you mean by clearing the controls? it looks as if everythign on the robarms is accessible in the folded position.

The folder clears all of the controls, as is, and offers a very good cheek weld. It's also reversible, so if you prefer it fold to the left of the receiver, you can set it up that way.

Nice Homeland Defense Rifle.

With the stock on the left would it block the charging handle or at least make it a pain in the ass to reach? and when will someone make an adapter for a M4 stock? They already make one for the AK.

very very nice!


I need to get one of those.

ETA- next time put something to reference the size in the pics so people can tell how compact it is easier

DavidC,

No offense here, but I must be the only one who doesn't like the way that rifle looks.
It's doesn't have anything to do with the folding stock, just the rifle itself.....I think
it's butt-ugly.

Anyway, I'm glad you were able to "evil" it up, hope you enjoy it.

Strong words from someone who admits to owning one of those 5.5" fake XM177E2 monstrosities.


To each his own.

You'll be the only one on the block if that RobArms folding stock is really $200!!!

With the stock on the left the charging handle would be a pain to reach. The receiver block is from ACE; they do make a connector for their other stocks and possibly an M4 stcok.

This is an ACE stock; from the looks of it, they are making the folders for RobArms. MSRP on this setup was $170. Dealer is somewhat less.

Dunno.. I'm sure it's a good shooter, but the Robinson guns always looked like a cross between a high school metalshop project and an Erector set. Glad you're able to trick it out properly now, though.

This help?



I'll be putting the long M96 rail with the rear flip up sight and an Aimpoint ML2 on it for the carbine config, save this optics and rail setup for the rifle config.

To each his own is right.....but I paid a lot less money for my ugly bitch.


By the way, how do those M96s compare to VEPRs with regards to weight ?
