I'm currently in a search for a new addition to the firearms family and have been looking at a RRA CAR. Don't have too much intel on them but they seem to be good quality. What are they like,chrome lined bbls???,receiver quality??? etc. How about price??? Any info will be helpful. THANKS!!!!!

Mine doesn't have a chrome lined barrel, but you can get that as an option. Receiver wise, and fit and finish wise, they are as good as any, and normally cheaper. Mine has been as reliable as any AR I have ever used, and that includes Colt, Bushmaster, Armalite, Olympic etc. Buy one, you won't be disapointed.

According to another post around here someplace, RRA is only chroming their M4 profile barrels.

Part quality, including the lower is on a par with other manufactures (Bushmaster, etc), at a lower price.

I have an RRA M4gery and am very happy with the fit, finish and operation.

Rock River Arms are good to go. I like the fit and finish and would not hesitate to buy another.

Std trigger on RRA assembled rifles is a National Match Trigger. This is about a $100+ option on Bushies or ArmaLites.

We get our Rock Rivers direct from Rock River.

WTF? This is email from Brownells when I asked about RRA chromelined M4 barrels...

I just spoke with the factory Rock River Arms.

The only barrel they have available in chromed line 5.56 Nato Chamber is a 16" barrel.

I guess I will be negative. I'm hoping it is
an isolated issue.

I just recently aquired a RRA 9mm.
Its a peice of shit. The fucking thing has really
bad jams. I'm in the process of getting it ironed
out with RRA. If they don't replace it. Expect me to dog them.
I hope its just one of those guns made on monday

That is correct, the M4 bbls are 16". RR will not be making any 14.5" bbls until after Jan. 2003.

Only reason I don't have a RRA AR is because I already have a Bushmaster...I have heard nothing but good things about them.
