Are all RRA barrels chrome lined? Do they make good SBR barrels? Or would you recommend something else for a 10.5"SBR? Thanks guys

No, not all Rock River Arms barrels are chrome lined

Rock River Arms does not make SBR barrels as far as I know but I would be wrong.  The shortest barrel on their web site is 16"


Or would you recommend something else for a 10.5"SBR? Thanks guys


Denny has a Noveske Diplomat 10.5 inch SS Barrel With ion bond finish that looks really nice for $335

Not sure if LMT sells barrels only but you can't go wrong with the 10.5 LMT

I am thinking about getting a 10.5" SBR that is already made. It is at the local class 3 shop. It has a RRA lower and they are selling it as a RRA weapon. If RR doesn't make SBR barrels then do they use someone elses barrels for SBR applications?

Can you tell just looking at a barrel if it is chrome lined?

My SWAT-issued AR is a 10.5" chrome-lined RRA.  They make them and so far we haven't had many problems with them.  They can just be a little finicky when it comes to ammo choices.  They definitely like the heavier grain bullets.

Is that a bipod mount sticking out below your muzzle?  Why?

Yeah, it's a bayonet lug mount for our Versa-Pods.  I leave it on most of the time so that it doesn't fall off the bipod and get lost in the gear portion of my case.  I'd prefer a rail-mounted bipod with a quick release, but obviously there is no room for that.

Interesting.  I didn't think there'd ever be a need for a bipod on what is quite obviously a dynamic entry weapon.

EMT370,

What 2pc. railed handguard is on your weapon? It looks like it might be a MI. My 10.5" RRA SBR looks exactly like your gun. Love the YHM front flip up tower!!!!

We have the bipods because we have two entry teams in addition to our snipers, so if we go on an op, there is a 50/50 chance that my team will be on perimeter.  This also holds true while on patrol too.  We only get issued one gun, so it has to fill all roles.  Personally, because of this I would probably like a 14.5" for better long-range ballistic performance while still having a manageable entry gun.  I can shoot pretty decent groups at 100 yards, but if I need to make a shot at that distance, I want to know that the round is going to do what it is supposed to do.  We shoot 55gr Federal LE223T1 JSP, so that helps...could be better off with a 62gr or so.

The rails are a two-piece Surefire M73.
