OK folks you are all sick of my AR questions.......but.......;)

A couple more.

I can not seem to find a mid-length upper in stock but with Pete from arfcom and legal trasfers. He is offering a RRA upper chrome lined shipped for 449.
What would you do?

After reading the big write up here:http://forums.officer.com/showthread.php?t=81462

They say RRA is not the best....:confused: I was thinking of just waiting for CMMG to get back in stock or Del Ton. Or even just going with a car/m4gery.

So if you have any input on the two go for it.

Many people have RRA with no complaints, myself included. If you are using it for a duty weapon, you may want to go with something different. However it is just to have and for fun, I think you will be ok. Pete is a great guy to deal with. You don't hear many complaints about RRA except from the "AR snobs".

Mind you, I don't put thousands of rounds through a rifle, or even hundreds. The RRA will most likely be just fine for anything you may need.

Pete is an awesome guy to deal with. I can say I'm a very satisfied customer:

I passed the 2K mark on my RRA Carbine with no hiccups.

My bushy is set up as my go-to weapon, with the RRA a close second.

The information is not all correct. For example... the RRA has M4 feed ramps and beautifully cut ramps at that. Here are mine.



RU planning to use this rifle as a fighting rifle, target rifle, hunting rifle... something else? Your use determines just how important it is to have 100% compliance to MilSpec. My use as a targewt rifle does not require that every part be MilSpec and that has saved me a lot of $$$ and I am perfectly happy with RRA. It is mucho accurate and reliable.

I've had no problems in the few times I've shot it since I bought it. I've only run a few hundred rounds through it, though, so I haven't put it through any serious shooting yet.

Thanks guys!

My use for the rifle will be as follows:
Plinking
Training
Varmit hunting
Outdoor "home protection"

I'll check back with Pete to see if it has m4 ramps.

You should be able to get a Stag upper from Pete in days or weeks.....as opposed to the RRA, which might take months for just the upper. If you want immediate gratification, pick something other than RRA. I waited a month for my RRA, and waited 4 or 5 days for my recent Stag upper. Although I like the RRA very much, I won't ever wait more than a week or two for one again...when there are other equal or better choices for similar money.

I love Pete.

Great guy and very good to deal with. I had a hitch with my rifle and it was returned to sender, but he resent it with no extra charges.

I don't think that will make any difference for his application. What difference do you think it will really make?
:confused::confused::confused:
The anodizing is what is giving the aluminum its hardnesss so to speak.
Same as with a aluminum framed 1911, you DON'T polish the feedramp.
This is in fact what RRA has done by cutting the "extended" feedramps in after the upper has been anodized.

Sweet! Enjoy the EBRD.:p Plenty of options for your BUIS. Are you going to run optics, if so what kind? That could have some bearing on what BUIS would be best suited.
