Hello All. I am ready to enter the addicting AR-15 zone .Put my first order in for a RRA 16" CAR my dealer told me they said it would be 30-40 days. My question is has anybody ordered a new complete rifle lately and how long did it take,i am going crazy it has only been 1 1/2 weeks.

You're not the only one. I've been waiting on a RRA 9mm Car for what seems like forever. I already have 1000+ rounds saved up, my LT BUIS, 3 mags and I'm working on getting more.

Mine took 8 weeks.

I always buy my RRA stuff from Eagle Firearms... they usually have something in stock... so I don't wait longer than it takes to get mailed to me...

My RRA CAR A4 took forty BUSINESS days or eight weeks, as you would have it. It was worth the wait. It gave me more time to stock up on ammo and mags for a really fun day at the range.

RRA A4 upper only took about 2 weeks when I ordered it in Jan.

ordered an upper in mid january, have not received yet. im going nuts waiting for it, i just keep opening and closing the stock, but it isnt as fun as playing with the completed rifle.

Order a supressor. That will make a 30 day wait seem like nothing at all.
Link Posted: 2/20/2006 1:46:21 PM EDT
Still waiting but having fun buying acc.

14 weeks, from the factory to my doorstep. Mine was a less common model, tho.
Link Posted: 2/20/2006 2:58:32 PM EDT
Would one of you post what these rra uppers group at 100 yds?

Ordered a Tactical UTE2 around Xmas and got it in 4 weeks.
Link Posted: 2/20/2006 3:59:45 PM EDT
I hope mine only takes 4 weeks. Think if I hold my breath it will make it go faster?
Link Posted: 2/20/2006 5:09:09 PM EDT
Ordered the complete CAR A4 kit early January, still waiting. Chrome lined barrel is the long lead item for me.
Link Posted: 2/22/2006 5:37:01 AM EDT
originally ordered the Elite CAR A4 upper from Eagle with flattop and ARMS 40 BUIS....and then placed second order for NM Lower with 6 position stock and hogue pistol grip...but that wait was going to be 6-8 weeks.

So I converted my two orders to get the Elite UTE2 because it allows me to get the medium handguards and not wait two months....and will have room to mount my Aimpoint ML2 on spacer and QR mount for co-witnessing the sights.

Chrome lined Entry Tactical--yesterday was 6 weeks. Still no word, just waiting patiently. Or not so patiently, I had to build another one in the meantime...

Just a little update , recieved the black rifle today 3weeks to the day.
Link Posted: 2/28/2006 6:55:33 PM EDT
Maybe I'll call the dealer and see if he shipped it out yet. He said plan on a few more weeks.
Link Posted: 2/28/2006 6:58:40 PM EDT
I just ordered a .458 SOCOM upper from them maybe 2 full weeks ago now.

I can't take the suspense!

Ordered my RRA Entry Tactical with custom engraving and it took a little over six months. They fit it in when they had time between contract production runs.
Link Posted: 2/28/2006 8:20:00 PM EDT
I would've been goin' APESHIT!!! if it took 6 months, even with the custom engraving!!!!
Link Posted: 3/1/2006 6:43:44 AM EDT
Pete at Legal Transfers just told me 3-4 weeks! Could be worse

I started getting a little jittery. I already had one AR so it wasn't a big deal. One thing 17 months on my Iraq deployment taught me was patience. Some things just aren't important enough to get mad about.

I was damn anxious to get my hands on it though.

That's nothing.

When we did the .458 SOCOM group buy back in '04 it was about 9 months before we got our uppers.
Link Posted: 3/1/2006 7:55:24 AM EDT
I ordered an upper and a few recivers on the 17th. Hopefully it'll only be another week or so, I'll let you guys know when they come in.
Link Posted: 3/5/2006 8:01:09 PM EDT
