The LAR-15 Tactical CAR A4 by Rock River Arms (RRA) features a 16" chrome moly barrel, a forged A4 upper receiver, and a star safety. It also features an A2 flash hider and a two-stage trigger, and it comes with one magazine. SSI 90464 comes with a tactical carry handle, and SSI 90465 comes with the RRA Dominator2 EOTech Mount.

Does anyone have one and care to share the review?

Hard to go wrong with a tactical carry handle.

Congratulations. You just contracted Black Rifle Disease.
Symptoms include an increase in magazines, optics, ammo and possibly additional Black Rifles.

A2 carry handle you no longer want because you bought an aimpoint plus a dremel too equals a nice BUIS.

I couldn't have said it any better!

Nice first purchase OP.

I have a few RRA's. They're good, reliable, and accurate AR'S.
Link Posted: 1/18/2015 8:24:14 AM EST
They are good guns. Buy a pile of magazines and ammo. Get out and sight it in.

Sorry to hear bro, you're wallet will be light for a long time.

RRA has gone to shit since the death of Larry and the 2013 panic. Hopefully you'll have better luck with them than I have in the last two years. I don't even recommend RRA any more to guys who will only shoot it once a year.
Link Posted: 1/18/2015 9:10:32 AM EST

ok, nobody else wants to do it so i will.

i hate to see the new guys get bad advice.

do not buy a RRA, bushmaster or DPMS when you can buy a BCM, colt or DD.

there is a difference in quality and if you are like me you use you AR for home defense.

Why buy RRA when a Colt 6920 can be had at the same price point?

My first AR was a RRA, much like the one pictured that I got probably ten years ago now. It's a good gun, no complaints.

As long as you didn't buy it off your brother for $3,000, I'm sure it's fine.

Thanks everyone!
I have already bought a bunch of things to add to it. Red dot sight,sling rails hand stop front and rear magpul sights
The black rifle epedemic is taking over.


Thoughts on a suppressor hmmmm...

Link Posted: 1/18/2015 11:02:42 AM EST
Back to say, lube the gun. 10/30, CLP, Slip 2000 EWL, KY Jelly (non water based), transmission fluid, or whatever. Keep the bolt and carrier wet.

WD40, Rem oil, and others can be too thin to shoot for very long without re lubing.

Have you even shot it yet? I would shoot it before adding a bunch of stuff to it. Why did you buy a Magpul front sight when you have an FSB?

I think he ment hand stop for the front, and a rear Magpul flip.

"I think he ment hand stop for the front, and a rear Magpul flip."

Yes I ment this.

Yes I have fired the AR, that's the reason I bought it. A friend of mine has one.

Ignore the haters. Have fun with your new rifle. Learn how to use it and always improve your skills.

Edit: You definitely need more than 1 magazine though.

They are shaped differently than standard safeties. I have one and like it, but not enough to bother buying more of them.

If you haven't done so already, take it out soon and run several 100 rounds through it and get back to us with your impressions. Hopefully no disappoint .


Good first start for the BRD .

If you ever get tired of the carry handle, just send it to me.

Look into a Gemtech HALO. It will fit all your A2 flash hiders(after you replace the crush washers with the included metal washers) and is a good can.

The rock River coyote rifle I have is a tack driver and has many hundred rounds down the pipe with no issues.
