I finally narrowed it down to two rifles. RRA Standard A4 and Armalites M15A4. Do both of these come with a two stage trigger or would I have to pay extra. I think they both come with muzzle brakes too. I will be using it for coyote hunting and just for target practice. Any suggestions Any body have a good place That I could order from.

I am also interested in any comments for destroyer's post as I am currently looking for an Armalite a4 with 2 stage trigger.

Ya gotta pay extra for the 2 stage trigger with both but only about $100. extra... Try Madd Dawg Enterprises in Tucson.. He handles both brands... His name is Mike Detty, if ya can't find Madd Dawg...

Is the $100 worth it for the trigger. What kind of accuracy I'm I looking at for those rifles

I have the Armalite M15A2

I get 2 - 21/2 inch 100 yard groups with fmj surplus ammo and 1 to 11/2 100 yard groups with jhp winchester. That's with the issue sights and standard trigger.

Destroyet, I urge you to reconsider and get a Bushy!

Mister Greens

I have not really considered one because I have not seen that much info on them. Especially prices

Dude's right about the Bushy... Great gun... I like RRA too but Bushmaster is the King...

My current catalog lists the RRA (in fact, ALL RRAs) as having the match 2-stage triggers.

RRA has the muzzle brake listed as optional. What is the difference between chrome lined barrel and a chromoly barrel. Could some one please give me the pluses and negatives of them.

Pros for lining/cons for moly:
- The chrome-lined barrel will have a longer useful life.
- The chrome-lined barrel will be easier to clean.

Cons for lining/pros for moly:
- Given barrels of equivalent quality, the moly barrel will be more accurate.
- The moly barrel will be a little less expensive.

The RRA "standard" would be a standard (military) trigger. A NM (national match) would be a 2 stage trigger. The difference in price is about $60. You can buy the NM trigger for around $90.

I had narrowed it down to the same 2. Made my choice yesterday, order the NM A2 from Rock River.

No, I just checked again and it specifically states "National Match Two Stage." Just in case I have an outdated catalog, I verified with their site. Are you saying that RRA's idea of a NM 2-stage trigger is no better than a stock military 2-stage trigger? If so, it's a pretty damn nice trigger.

Get the ArmaLite M15A4 and head on down the road with a fine weapon and warranty.
