I am a former pistol competition shooter that has been out of the game for about 13 years and would like to buy a new ar-15, 16 inch A4 profile.

Is RRA the only company that advertizes its accuracy in their ads? What company should I look at the can give me 1 inch or better at 100 yards?

Its the past shooter in me that says I want an accurate rifle.

Thanks
Shipper

Most AR's can hold 1 MOA at 100yrds

Just buy a nice rifle, 16" barrels can hold 1 MOA, but a free-floating handguard would help. A 20" would have no problem.

If you are an old target guy you might be interested in a dissapator style rifle. It offers the full sight radius of the 20" rifle with the barrel length/weight/ease of mobility of a carbine.

Otherwise, get a 16" M4 barrel, free-float the grip with a 4 rail rifle handguard and buy some decent flip-up iron sights. If you want to go optics then it doesn't matter how you free-float the barrel.

And if you want super accurate look at Larue's uppers with a lower that has a "match" trigger assembly.

Look for one with a 1 in 7 or 8 twist and utilize the 77 grain bullets. Big , big , difference. Fulton Armory advertises accuracy. The Rock River Wilson barrels are excellent in that price range. I dont see the guys here shooting under an inch consistant unless they have a fast twist and a match bullet. I am talking 100 yds. with a scope. Getting under the .5 consistant can be done with the expensive rifles.
