The Rock River Arms Pro Series Government.

Looks to be an incredible piece of kit, fully loaded right out the box.

Best factory standard carbine there is ?

Could you provide a comparison for your choice.

ever is subjective

It's OK but not even close to some of the tricked out carbines you can buy from many of the vendors here or easily build yourself.

Jeez: 2 posts in 6 years. Lurk much?

It's got some nice gear and RRA makes a great gun, but they are not the best (IMO). I would probably change out a lot of the kit it comes with.

Is it a 1:9 twist on the barrel? Is so that would be my problem with it. ymmv.

I've always thought the best carbine ever was the next one you're thinking/dreaming about building.

the best carbine there is fits you and your needs perfectly.

that being said, there are a few things on the RRA I would change.
their bolt for an MP tested bolt
their 4140 barrel for a 4150 barrel
their barrel profile for a lighter (under the handguards) profile
dump the Surefire foreend for a Daniel Defense (old style) or LaRue

I wouldn't feel undergunned with the RR (in fact I like 'em), but is it perfect? not in my opinion.

Made my decision early on to go down the AK path and have been buying Arsenals ever since.

I'm getting interested in ARs again because you're about 3 House sessions away from losing the right to buy them.

So I want the very best while I still can.

my carbine is the best ever; why? becuase I built it

You want the best?

Buy a Colt 6920. Then get a LaRue or Daniel Defense front rail, a VLTOR adjustable stock, Magpul MIAD grip, and a quality 1:8 stainless steel barrel. The light and sight RRA put on that rifle is acceptable.

Thanks, that's what I need to know.

Still impressed by that RRA though.

Gee,

Change the the: (1) bolt, (2) barrel, and (3) rail. But other than that it's a good deal. ROTFLMAO!

+1 to everything everyone just said but dump the DD rail or larue... sorry im just partial to my KAC RIS unit.
Link Posted: 4/21/2007 4:12:05 PM EDT
The Colt 6920 is a better weapon. Get one, and be happy. If you don't, you'll always wish you did.

Umm, guys? I don't think he was asking if the stuff it comes with is the best. He was asking if this was the best mass produced, "stock" rifle to come from one of the major rifle making companies (so smaller companies and custom orders and such wouldn't count).

+1 Colt 6920

Best, not really. Very good without a doubt. I would go with the 6920 by a little. I also really like the LMT.
Link Posted: 4/21/2007 6:02:35 PM EDT
Nope, mines the best ever because its configured exactly how I want it

+1 on the 6920 or 6721.

Colt will be your best investment.

or go with the MP15T has a nice blend of aftermarket straight from the factory just add your VFG and optics and your good. And its spot on reliability never had ANY problems out of my MP and has had around 5000 rounds through her now. One dry spell of cleaning equallying 400 round storing it for 2 weeks and 600 more rounds to test reliability and never had a malfunction.
