I originally wanted a Elite CAR A4 but it looks like the local shop is out and will be for quite some time because RRA is backed up. They do have the Entry Tactical and a few others. My main requirements were 16" barrel, flat top upper, and chrome lined barrel. Anyone have any of the other 16" AR's? How big of an advantage is the mid length gas system? Is a chrome lined barrel considered an essential item?

Sounds like good advice. Might as well get what I want!

Do you have any RRA Elite A4 uppers with midlength handguards and chrome lined barrels?

Sorry, no, not at his time. I usually sel out of them quickly



I think I'll just put my money down on one and wait.

There are 3 guns that I wanted to pick up tomorrow and the local shop only has 1 of them

Buy practice ammo instead of the other 2 guns



I planned on picking up a Remington 700PSS, Remington 870P, and RRA Elite CAR A4. The only one that is in stock is the 700PSS. I dont have a scope and rings so practice ammo for it wouldnt be a whole lot of fun :)

Midlength is nice!

Honestly, for 16" it just makes sense. Why go with a shorter gas system unless you have to?

I would go with the midlength.
