I just received my new Robinson Armamant M96 today. Let me say from the beginning, I like it alot. It also helps that I got a screaming deal on it too:-) First, the overall construction was excellent. The welds looked great and the finish was evenly applied on the gun. The fit was very snug, but from what I understand, it will loosen up to the point of being able to push the pins out by finger/bullet tip. With open sights, I was able to group about 1.5 moa. At 100 meters, my best 5 shot group was .75" and worst was 2.5". Overall, it would just make a large hole about 3" where 30 rounds would just fly through. I haven't put a scope on it yet, but will likely do so in the future. Has anyone scoped theirs and what was your group? I fed the M96 three types of ammo, without a problem. My home loads, Winchester, and IMI surplus. I was very happy with the results of my new rifle. I know some feel it is cost prohibitive and compare it to a pre-ban AR-15. They do run around the same amount, but they are totally different guns. I really feel you get what you pay for on this rifle. There were a couple of weak points. The butt stock does "feel" a little weak. I'm sure it will hold up for more than my life time, but the plastic wasn't anywhere as thick as the AR's. The rear sight would be nice in a A2 configuration. Not a huge concern, but it will take some getting used to. Also, the barrel isn't chrome lined. To some this is a neg., but not too big of a deal for me. If I wear it out, then I'll get another... I striped and cleaned the rifle before shooting. It was very familiar, yet very different from the AR's. It seemed like there was a blend of many rifles. 1. FAL- lower receiver, controls, charging handle, and adj. gas system. 2. HK- Upper receiver was stamped and welded, used similar push pins. 3. AK- gas piston was attached to bolt carrier. 4. AR- similar bolt, similar trigger group, and AR-15 mags. 5. Styer AUG- removable barrel. Like I said, these are my first impressions. Overall I am very satisfied with this product. It seems to offer many good and proven designs incorporated into one product. I would like to hear other's experiences with this rifle. fuatos I will happily store this in the safe with my beloved AR-15's. I think they can all get along!!!

Fuatos, my experience with the M96 has been about the same as yours, except, trigger pin walked out on firing. After a call to Robarms, determined that they hadn't put the spring on right and they told me how to fix it. Stays in place now. Haven't really had a chance to wring her out as other honeys caught my eye and distracted me, but, I plan to spend some quality time with ms robinson soon. It is an excellent rifle. Gets along well with the others. [;)]
