I almost got that one. I ended up with the RRA Entry Tactical. With luck, I'll shoot it for the first time tomorrow.:cool:

Ask and you shall receive.



Thread about my recently purchased Rock River Arms Coyote Rifle.

This is my first AR-15 and I am very happy with it. The only complaint was the Hogue over-molded pistol grip. At first I was afraid I would not like the ACE Skeleton stock but I love that. I replace the Hogue grip with a Magpul MIAD Grip system and love the grip. The adjustability of it is very nice. Thicker for my large hand and then slim it down a little bit for cold weather and gloved hands.



Feel free to ask any questions I do what I can to answer them about that rifle.

Nice machine! About 7 bills less than I
paid for a Bushie which this one was
copied from. Oh well, win a few loose
a few.

Enjoy that sucker.

Kind of an odd mix, isn't it? 20" heavy barrel AR with iron sights? I have a 20" bull barrel AR but it's solely for punching holes in paper, varmints and predators out past 100 yards so I put some glass on it.

I guess that's the great thing about ARs though, they're modular enough that you can set them up to your own specs. An AR carbine's next on my list of builds!

I built my own from the ground up for coyote hunting. I based it off my M4 counter sniper so things are familiar. I use a Pentagon X3 to light things up for nighttime hunting. The only thing I want to do to it now is have the barrel threaded for a YHM compensator and gunkote it in camo.
It took down 6 coyotes on the last outing. You can build one for alot less than the price on that RRA.

Pretty much anything from RRA is going to be solid and well backed by the company. Dunno if I'd drop the dime for that particular setup from the manufacturer. My SPR wanna-be has a Magpul PRS on it right now, but I've still got the ACE LG SOCOM stock sitting on the shelf. I put a Midwest Industries 2-piece FF 4 rail forearm on it and am well and pleased. I kept the optic simple and stuck with a Burris 3200 Elite 10x. I'm not using a bi-pod yet mostly because I prefer to shoot off of a bag (read backpack) but none the less it's the best .223 shooter I have. Plus it's damn purdy...

Anything you're willing to use. Cost might be a factor, if so for me the Burris and Bushnell lines are pretty solid, though my favorite lower end optic is the SuperSniper 10 and 16x scopes. Great glass for the money... it goes up from there, but you really shouldn't need a variable, so stick with a fixed 10x.

In my case I bought the RRA Coyote rifle to make a 3-gun AR our of it. I shoot in the Limited division and optics are not allowed in that division. I want to eventually move the front sight all the way to just behind the flash suppressor. I will also probably replace the flash suppressor with a muzzle brake.

I might mount a scope in front of that iron sight one of these days. I am tempted to put an ACOG on it with the quick release mount. That way I can shoot matches with the iron sights but slap some optics on it for a weekend of Groundhog or Coyoted hunting. That said I don't think ground hogs and coyote would be to hard with iron sight out to 150 maybe 200 yards. My first trip to the range it was shooting 1.5 inch groups at 100 yards and that was with cheap ammo. I think with some high quality ammo sub-MOA would be no problem for the rifle.
