Is this the perfect M4gery, or does it take all the fun out (with the exception of shooting it that is)?

Anyone planning on getting one?

I thought I'd add this to perhaps prompt at least one response...

If it had a 1/7 chrome lined, M4 profile barrel and a real flash hider, I might say yes.

I'm looking to build something like this, but a package deal would be nice. $2200 kinda stings though.

Lets see,

Base gun: $1,000

Surefire Quadrail: ~$300

EoTech: ~$450

BUIS:  $120

Hogue Grip:  $25

Surefire: $300(?)

Total:  $2,170

so its about the same as if you did your own build (assembly)

Would I get one? No.

But if I were looking for a RockRiverArms AR, and that exact line up of accessories- I would since it is factory assembled.

RR does make great AR's and it will cost you $2,200 to put a combo like this together, so I think it will have a fair amount of success

I'll take the KAC over the SF rail, and an Aimpoint over the EOtech, and come out a bit cheaper.

The grips and 2 stage match trigger are standard, ie FREE.

Don't forget the cleaning kit and the $100 Discreet case are thrown in for free also.

I just came across this free PDF file of Guns Magazine story on the GOVT1001

Guns Magazine Oct. 2004 Rock River Arms DEA Government Model PDF FILE

Just keep in mind there might be a bit of a wait if you order one, I think that is due to their needed to prioritize the fullfillment of DEA/FBI orders.

Having "Government Model" in big white letters on the side kind of looks gay.

Why do people like the M4 profile barrel?  To me it is ugly.
It looks like a real flash hider to me, what is fake about it?
Aren't chrome lined barrels less accurate?

NONONO

It does have a chrome-lined barrel, it just happens to be 1 in 9 not 1:7. I would imagine he was making the M4 profile barrel point because the original poster was asking about the 'ultimate' M4gery, which one would think must have the M4 style barrel.

I like the Gov't Model, although it would be much cooler with the DEA stamp instead of the "Government Model" lettering. But I wouldn't say it's "Gay."

ETA: of course everyone seems to be overlooking the main point of this rifle, the tough testing it passed in order to be chosen as the DEA/FBI choice. I'd say that is a good reason in itself to give it a serious look if you're in the market for this type of rifle.

Read the Guns Magazine article, this GOVT1001 thing isn't just about good looks.

Here is the HTML version of the Guns Magazine story. If you're like me, you'll prefer this over the crappy Adobe Acrobat version.

I'm doing the same thing in a frankengun with a midlength barrel. Those guys are trying to copy me. I guess I'll have to call mine the Big Gubbament Model.
