I traded a S&W629 and a S&W19Combat for a newie RockRiver 16" A4 tactical CAR-15. I am happy with the trade though I miss the model 19 a bit.
The RR is sweet. But I can't find any info about the model I got. No help at the RR website.
In the upper there are two slots under the picatiny rail that have a knob between them. The knob has a spring in it and an 'o' ring. Is this something a simple as a battery storage compartment? If not, What the heck is it for?

Hi, This sounds like a UTE Rock River (I am assuming it has the rear sight and this is not a carry handle) and yes the compartment is for an Aimpoint battery The barrel is a Wilson 1:9 twist, the uppers and lowers are forged, the trigger should be a factory two stage, if there is anything specific I can answer let me know.

You are right. It has the std AR rear sight config and a 4" M1913 rail. I have ordered a TA01NSN... but have a 10 week wait. I figured that was what it was, but I had to ask. thks

I ordered it before I discovered how great AR15.com is for finding out this kind of information. I decided to cancel my direct order from Trijicon. I may have given you my business, but I have already re-ordered from SWFA. BTW, I decided to change from the NSN to a 31F. I like the RB Precision site!

I think you will be happy with the 31F we are having trouble getting ahold of these, the straight 31 doughnut is my favorite. SWFA will treat you right, let me know if we can help in the future. Robert
