Well guys a while back I asked the question whether Black Rain Ordnance guns were any good. I answered my own question. Really good.... really really good.

Here is my review here.

Bought a BRO upper/lower a couple years ago..the look hooked me as soon as I saw them. Fantastic receivers, they'll look better soon with the rest of the components attached. Your rifle looks great, a little "bling-y" for me...but nontheless a good looking rifle.

$2069 as tested seems like a lot of money for an AR to me

I'm using one of their stainless barrels on my SPRish build. It was a stainless heavy barrel that was turned down to a medium contour and then duracoated. It's been a good shooter so far! This isn't the most current pic of it, I've changed the BCG for a Palmetto (that's a crappy DPMS in the pic) and gas block (for a Young low profile) since this one:

I've got one of their 7.5" SS tri-lobe rifled barrels in an AR pistol (soon to be SBR) and it's pretty darn accurate.
I'm not wasting my time answering I really could care less what you think or do.

I got a BRO billet set, and I must say it is pure sexiness.

Standard Buffer but M16 BCG. I will have to check on the shelf.

Larue makes awesome firearms as well, however they are going after different markets. Might want to look at the specs again between the two. Yeah there are some dollars involved, however I am sure Larue is not including sights, KNS anti-walk pins, an upgraded case, Magpul single point sling mount, single point sling, Nickel Boron BCG and charging handle, and 20% ceramic coated receiver. Add those in there and you have and easy price difference. The point I believe Black Rain is making is they have pulled it all together in a package like STI has done with 1911s. Keep in mind this is a gun really going after the 3-gun market which encourage a little fun in their toys.

I'm not seeing how the accessories they offer cater to a 3 gun market.

That must be the worst compensator/brake design I've ever seen. You usually design accessories and gear to reduce the possibility of snagging on gear. That muzzle device, according to your article, snagged on your couch. You don't hit people with an AR-15, you shoot them with it. But if you really must hit someone, use a bayonet.

It's strange that for a 2k "bells and whistles gun" budget optics were used in the testing.

Not sure what part of an AR15 for fun you guys are not getting. If I want to go breaking down doors, I will grab my standard Spikes, DTI, RRA, Ruger, or S&W rifles. Yeah I can just see the lawsuit now after defending myself with a rifle with Skulls on it.

The brake is odd, but I found it worked very well although as noted it will snag on stuff.. just like many of the open ended pronged flash hiders from YHM, Smith, DPMS, Midwest, Tapco, Doublestar, Troy, Model 1, and AR Stoner.

The higher magnification scope worked fine for shooting groups and its the scope I have been using for all my groups shooting... I don't need to go out an buy $2K 6-24X power scope when I am shooting groups in full sunlight. Right now I have a Millet DMR on the rifle which also works very well.

nice review, while the guns alittle out of my price range it looks like they make a good barrel that I might end up buying.

Id still have the Larue w/o the upgrades if thats how it had to be... luckily this is America and I can have the Larue AND the upgrades.

The BR is a nice stick, although the skulls aren't my taste, but I still think I will stick with my PredatAR

They have pink tiger stripe camo. They also have standard 60RC black anodized receivers and I think they have other Aqua Transfer dip pattern options like various standard digital camo patterns for the traditionalist.

I thought everyone here hated Black Rain? Then again that was a few years ago and things change like the wind around here.
