Ok I want to order a rock river ar-15. I email the company and their five word answer is to order it thru a dealer.

Does that mean thru a FFL or one of the dealers that pops up on their dealer page?

I assume it means a online dealer or gun shop. Not sure in Nebraska what shop sells them.

Also for those of you who have orderd a Rock River Ar-15 online who was the best to deal with price and service wise.


Thanks guys for all your help. Just waiting on the tax refund. :D :shock: :shock: :?:

Those RRA website dealers are FFL's. If none are listed close to you then you will need to find a local shop. They do not have to stock/sell RRA rifles but they will have to do the FFL thing for you. You have to fill out your yellow form and they need to make their required ATF check on you. Any FFL dealer/local gun shop can order from RRA. The hardest part is the 2-3 month wait for your new arrival from RRA. But worth every minute of it !!!!

Yeah I got a FFL guy that I do all my transfers thru. Maybe I'll talk to him to see if he can order it.


Thanks

I bought my RRA Entry Tactical at www.rbprecision.com it took 3 weeks from order to delivery. It was $850 delivered, but without the chromelined barrel.

Also check out www.eaglefirearms.net or www.ar15sales.com
These two places have good prices also. I got a complete factory rifle and not a RRA lower plus a RRA upper. Some places will tell you that they can put one together for you, but it's not factory tested. Just keep this in mind.
You can also check out www.ar15.com and get overwhelmed with information. They have a lot of dealers on their website. The dealers are listed under the industry section.

I saved a total of $150 by order online. This includes my FFL Charge of $31.50

Good luck. Rock River Rocks.

Ok so I guess I'll find someone to order my rifle. I guess my FFl guy can order from them but it looks like there are a bunch of on line people to place my order.


Now for you help. I'm a newb to ar-15's. I've read what I can but as you know it is volumes upon volumes.

Now for your help in my rifle.

I want it for plinking and occasional varmint shooting. Shots from 100-250 yards probably.

Where I'm lost is flat top, scope and a million other configurations. I would like iron sights obviously. But I would like to add a mild, average scope for longer shots. I know I've seen it's possible to have both mounted together. I also like the hogue grip. As far as butt stocks I need your help. For what I want what would you recommend. I love the rock river prices and rep. They look like awesome rifles.

Can you help me build my rifle. I like the look of the entry tactical but looks aren't everything if it won't do what I need. Most plinking will be short 75-100 yards but would like the option to go a little longer.

I don't mind cleaning my gun so I don't need chrome lined. I'm a little confused on the sights if you can help me decipher them. The hand guard I believe is the grip out on the barrel and I assume I'd go with standard R-4 black. I don't need all the bells and whistles.

Basically you know what I want to shoot, what I want to mount as far as scope. I also would like flip sights or iron sights whichever is easier or better. Not sure what comes standard.

Sorry for all the mumble jumble. Just went thru shoulder surgery 24 hours ago and still juiced up on pain killers. But the wife says I can go with the evil black rifle as long as I'm around 800-900 and I can take it out of our tax return.

Anybody help me configure a good shooter given what I want it to do.

Not sure if 16" or 20" is better. Compact would be nice but not ultimate necessity. I also want to order plenty of mags when you guys help me. Not looking to build just buy complete.

Your help would be greatly appreciated. Some of your guys knowledge is really amazing. I trust you guys here for your opinions. Plenty have helped me make my mind up before on purchases and I respect your opinions this time.


Thanks guys. Hopefully you can help me decipher on the 50 some different models there on their site. :shock:

Here is my RRA...



Its a 16 inch Tactical Elite midlength. the midlength has a better gas system IMO and shoots softer. I have shot matches at 100 yard gongs and hit them with ease using my Sightron electronic sight. It has multiple reticles and carries a lifetime REPLACEMENT warranty. I gave $184.00 for it on sale and I can still use my factory sights without having to add anything else to the rifle. Wen shooting, I dont even see the rear iron sight so its not in the way at all. I also added a JP Beenie CooleyTactical compensator to it for $90.00 and it recoils on par with a .22. I was able to use my combination to shoot a 31 round USPSA stage in like 6.3 seconds. the same stage took me 12 seconds with a pistol. This was while running.
I cant speak for RRA rifles enough, they are awesome pieces of work. The probem is that there are so many different sight, scope combinations out there you will have to figure out what will best work for you.
My sight has a 3 minute dot meaning it covers a 3 inch area of a target at 100 yards. It also has like a 12 minute retical for up close fast shots. For several hundred yards you may want a regular scope for shooting groups.
Or this may be a good option for you, scope for distance tops with a dot sight for up close speed shots...

I use my old military mags and have yet to have a feeding issue, maye you can find some really cheap from a gunshow or get some from a buddy thats getting out of the military.

How did you order yours?

I like your setup. Did you order it thru one of the online dealers?


Thanks

I have a friend thats a dealer and is still in his first year or so of buisness. I was lucky enough that he had 2 of them. He told me to come see him at the gunshow first thing and I could have my pick between the Elite and an Entry Tactical. Unfortunately there seems to be a backlog in orders with RRA so unless you find a dealer with one in stock, you will have to wait a bit. Don't worry though, its definately worth the wait. besides, it will give you time to pick up ammo and other goodies.

His name is John Thyne give him a call and see if he has any in stock, he's a great guy to deal with. Tell him Todd sent you.

1. Find a FFL in your area. Look in the Phone Book. Check prices of Fees
2. Decide on which model you want
3. Call one of dealer's that I gave links to in the prior post.
4. Tell them you want to buy the following model RRA .........
5. Give them a credit card or send them a check because it will take about 4 weeks.
6. Get the fax number for the dealer that you are ordering from.
7. Ask your FFL (#1) to fax a copy of his FFL to the shipping dealer (#3)
8. Learn all you can about AR's in the next 4 weeks or so
9. Buy lots of Magazines and not clips. (Get Mil Spec or GI surplus with green followers ----- D&H, Labell, NHMTG, COLT, or H&K. The last two brands will be really expensive, especially the H&K's. Don't spend more than $20 for new mags. Mags at gun shows are a rip off, IMHO)
10. Find a supplier of .223, lots of it.

Finally, Take that sucker to the range. Go Bang,BAng,.....30 times. or 20 if you get 20 round mags.

Good Luck.........

:lol:

Shameless plug for Pete.

I just ordered a RRA 9mm A4 through Legal-Transfers

Shoot him an email and let him know what you want and I'm sure you won't be able to find a better price when you include the shipping.
