I mounted it on a RRA lower, with the 2 stage trigger.
My mission for this rifle is mainly 0-200 yards. With the occaisional longer distance shooting trying to hit anything type thing. I do have a 2 x7 leupy on an arms 2 mount I could put on there for longer distance. Eventually, I'll get a dot sight (eotech or something) with buis and may get a good mount for the scope too.

My impressions. This set up is a bit front heavy. Not too bad though. I could probably live with it. I may also look for some other stock options that would be a tad heavier. The other weird thing is the upper hangs over a hair more on one side than the other. It doesn't seem like it will affect function because all the moving parts seem to go where they need to. I'll see when I hit the range. Has anyone else seen this before? But overall the upper that Steve built is very nice feeling and looking. I'm stoked.

It's very nice and I can't wait to shoot it. I ordered this Thursday last week and got it today. I would've got it earlier but obviously the holiday shoved it back some. Steve ships very fast, if it's in stock I'm sure.

BTW, this is my first carbine!!!!!!!!!!!
















I didn't teach him that look. He made it up himself!!!!!!!

Is the upper receiver a Rock River?

If not, that will explain the over-hang issue

RRA is known to make their lowers a bit out of spec in order to achieve the tight fit many AR owners have long clamored for.


while I had heard this trivia, and took it with a bit of salt, but then heard (read) an interview with RRA founder who confirmed it.

anyway........it should work fine and sure looksbeautiful.

Congratulations, JJREA !!

I can attest to the lock up. My dad has almost the same set up as I but his is a midlength that Steve built with no FSB but the same RRA lower. And that thing locks up tiiiiiiiight!!!! This one locks up tight too. It's just that it hangs over a little on one side and is in a little on the other. Like it's off center. But where the the buffer and bolt comes together it seems straight. I just hope it doesn't cause feed issues. It doesn't look like it will but anytime you have a new weapon it's touch and go until you shoot the piss out of it. I'm sure if there's a problem, it'll get taken care of properly. It probably is the RRA is a little out of spec obviously. The upper reciever is WOA that Steve uses. As is my dads.

I know it's simple, but I like simple. I only want to add what I think I have to have. Those red dots seem like they'd be fast though. Which I'd like, but I want to shoot the irons for awhile anyways. Plus I'm not made of money. Ammo and mags is where it's going now.

This seems to be a recurring theme!!!!

You got pics of your rig?

You might have saved a few ounces at the front by having ADCO shave the barrel down to 14.5" and then permanently installing a Phantom or Vortex FH. Or maybe flute the barrel?

Pretty rifle. They shoot nice.

Great guy too.

I've got another upper by him, well my dad has it now, and can attest to the quality!!!!

I'm going to shoot this one on Saturday morning and Sunday afternoon. I'll have to do a report if I remember to bring my camera. I always forget the camera. Better than forgetting the ammo though!!!!
