APK-223,

Since your a NROTC student, how is the quality of construction in the Rock River Arms AR as compared to a GI A2 or a Bushmaster? I've had my eye on a RRA rifle but I'm not sure how good they are.

RRA ive never shot but i hear (off this site) that their match type rifles are great accuracy too
Bushmaster makes a quality product i can say that and accuracy wise you should expect to be on par with most bolt guns in the same price range also in .223 cal

westpointranger:

Quality: Well obviously many of the parts that going into the AR are universal. But the difference bxn (between) Rock River Arms and other companies, is that RRA made the key components of the highest quality. These being the chamber, barrel and the trigger. My RRA came with a match barrel, match chamber and a match 2-stage trigger. The story as I understand it on how RRA came to be is that some top guys at Bushmaster and Colt got together, discussed what they disliked and put together their own AR series.

Barrel: I have heard (not proven) that the Bushmaster barrels are not as good, at least quality wise as compared to RRA. The RRA comes with a Wilson. I know people have shot them and done great with them, but again I think the RRA is a better quality barrel. The RRA also comes with a 1:8 twist, which I have come to respect. It can fire heavier bullets due to the increased twist rate.

Chamber: The RRA is chambered in .223 Wylde. I'm not sure on the exact differences here but i know the chamber is a national match.

Trigger: I love my trigger!!!!!!!! The national match 2-stage trigger that came on my RRA is awsome.

Price: My RRA was only $1000 bucks!!! This makes it very competitive,
especially when you look at the quality of the rifle.

I purchased mine with the EOP upper, which I think is a great idea. So there ya go westy I think thats about it for the rundown. Any more questions/disagreements let me know.

i think you would be happy with any of the accurized AR-15s by quality manufactuers
there is no wrong decision... your a winner weather you get any of them from the reviews ive read
APK will tell you that your a winner with the RRA
i can tell you your a winner with the Bushmaster
if you plan on going for the heavier bullets the Bushmater's 1:9 will stabilize the 69 gr BTHP very well and the 75 gr VLD bullet but NOT the 77 gr BTHP... mine didnt like them heh
1:8 twist will stabilize the 77 gr BTHP better and even the 80 gr BTHP

*agrees w/ Jeff*

All the AR companies out there now put out pretty nice guns, and if your not happy with it there are thousands of upgrades, accesories, etc..... The only difference being the standard productino finish/quality of the rifle. Some you may have to upgrade more than others so make sure to do your research!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :p

herd about a few people who THOUGHT they got a Bushmaster but questioned weather they did when they had lots of problems with thier AR... told this to Bushmaster were able to confirm that it was just some cheap knockoff heh
DPMS makes a nice rifle you would want to consider also if you want a .308 its a lot less money than the expensive Armalite AR-10T

I ordered it on 6/7/04 along with a Springfield 10 x 50 Mill Dot BDC. I called DPMS and and asked how long it would take for them to ship the rifle to the dealer and they said 7-9 weeks. It is a long wait, but should be well worth it.

The bad news is there aren't any ranges more than 200 yards long where I live.
