Default AR15 bull barrel upper

Been thinking about trading my 20" Bull Barrel upper in for a lighter RRA coyote carbine upper with the 16" barrel. The 20" is just getting too heavy for me to lug around the outdoors. Plus it's too heavy to shoot standing up. Anyone have any experience with the RRA upper? I know they make good stuff, just don't know how this one is

I've got a stag arms model 1 upper rebarreled with a 16" bull barrel I've been looking to trade for a flat top upper. Interested?

I'd be okay with that but I'm trying to stick with a flat top myself

Olympic Arms .223 AR15 type flat top rifle. I built this rifle using an Olympic Arms flat top receiver, fitted with an Olympic Arms ultra-match 24 inch bull barrel. It is fitted with a free floating round handguard, a JP match trigger and topped with a 4-12 x 50mm mil-dot Tasco scope.. I have used it on groundhogs out to 300 yards using Military green tip M855 ammo

i know this wont quite answer your question but here is my experience with RRA uppers

my rra national match is sub moa with iron sights at 300 yards. uses the same barrel as their varmint version.

their high end barrels are made by wilson which is one of the better barrel makers out there.

some pics

3 shot 300 yards


6 at 300 yards


the rifle. RRA National Match A2


my opinion go for it. RRA makes good stuff. you have to go really far to find better and it wont be cheaper.

Thanks for all the input. Once I find someone to buy my upper (will probably take it to the gun show this weekend) I'll order one of these http://rockriverarms.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=category.display&category_id= 387 in the 16" version

I just ordered my first AR and it is a RRA ETH carbine and I have heard nothing but good things about them until today , I was talking to a friend and he was telling me that they have problems with triggers breaking? The one I ordered had a two stage trigger and I have searched all this afternoon and have found no bad reviews at all for RRA, So I was glad to see another person who actually owns on give them a good review .

I went ahead and listed my AR up on armslist for 1500. You guys think that's a fair starting price? Gives me some room to negotiate
