Your opinions on Rock River Arms

My first thread here. Wanted to know what you guys think of them and how they generally compare to other manufacturers. Thanks!

Oh, and it's too late to send it back.

Don't sent it back, it's a fine AR. I run mine with a 3X + red dot and at 80 yards was hitting a silver dollar size exploding target.

Nice setup! It'll take all year to get mine finished, but it will be a fun ride for sure.

They are what they are. Far from the best, but good enough for most uses. Of course what you got doesn't have quite the number of alternatives.

RRA is a good middle of the road AR option.

Not bad ive shot the local PD's in .308 its a nice shooter they were testing it as a lighter weight option to some on the m1a socoms (too heavy for what they wanted them for ) they ended up going with them.

I had a RRA 5.56 which I really liked. It shot very well. During the scare/run, I had a friend who wanted to buy it so I sold it to him. I had 2 LMT's to replace it. In hindsight, it shot and functioned every bit as well, if not better, than the LMT's, and I wish I held on to it.

I find them to be too expensive for what they are, but if you already have it and like it, then that is what matters.

The one he got isn't something that's offered by many manufacturers, so I completely understand why he went with RRA.

Not often that I'd say that

The 300 and 500 grainers will be here Monday.

I'm a bit relieved that it's a good gun maker. I have no experience with them.

~10" SBR that maxes out the .458 ballistics, and a can in the near future, I hope. Then another upper or 2. Might as well get a matching 5.56!

Had you said that from the start, I would have probably called RRA complete junk out of pure jealousy.

Man, the price was right (comparatively speaking), and I couldn't find a 300 yard shot around here to save my ass. Dump truck carbine round it is! That, and I have no training as a long range shooter. I'm used to shotguns and pistols, and getting a hit on a man-size target at 100 yards is good enough for me. Might as well up the power factor.

I already got a boolit mold for it, but I may have to get another. Toolhead and dies are coming too. Ready to offset the costs.
