Not the same company.......unless. RRA makes 1911s now, kinda doubt it tho.
RRA does make a 1911 again. but it's a polymer version. they made steel 1911 years ago, but got out of them to concentrate on AR's. but he may also be confused and thinking of RIA too.

This is a matter of opinion. Personally I think the best AR is the one that fits my needs, and fires when I squeeze the trigger.

Hey y'all, I'm brand new to the rifle game. I have pistols and shotguns but never a rifle. I'm looking into ARs.
I hear y'all saying that you need an AR that "fits your needs".
My question is, what sort of needs will determine what type of AR I need?
Like what features of an AR will benefit me in what situations?

Sorry. I know this is a hard question to answer. I'm really a suppperrrr beginner when it comes to all of this.

Buy a Colt 6940. It's in your budget and is good quality. They retain their value and come with a lot of upgrades out of the box. I'm going the DIY route, but if I wasn't I'd buy a 6940 as my first so I could figure out the AR platform. Once you figure out what you like, build one. At least you can sell a Colt without taking a huge loss if you don't like it after building one that fits your needs better.

Somethin for home defense ,self defense, QCB. Going to the range and have fun with. I recommend something with a 16 to 18 inch barrel.

Somethin for hunting or longer ranges something with a 20 to 24 inch barrel.

my suggestion would be to buy something stock and learn the platform, learn how to field strip and maintain it, and learn to shoot it. then figure out what your needs and wants are and then go from there.

i went with an older Bushmaster M4A2 Patrolmans carbine. well it was what i thought i wanted, because i had had a couple similar many years ago. mine has the carry handle upper, and the next one will definately be a flattop for sure. it was a good relearning tool and suprised me at what i want the next one to be.
