I've owned/built several brands. Rock River offers a solid product when it comes to range accuracy and extras for the money. They're really hard to beat for accuracy if your intended use is to sit in a fixed position and generate tight groups. The downside it that they're often on the heavy side and (in my opinion) not ideal for an 'eats anything and never fails' SHTF rifle. I've shot several. They're pretty good. I had one. Sold it before even shooting it, because it was a 9.8lb rifle that should've weighed closer to 7lbs with the given format...that's 40% overweight, without an M16 BCG...in other words, obese. I also found their customer service and integrity to be far less than acceptable.

Doublestar and Delton both offer relatively good rifles for the price, provided you do your homework and get the right price. Neither is a bad company, but folks often pay too much for each when buying from the wrong source.

I think you'll almost always get your money's worth with PSA, BCM, and Daniel Defense. There are other fine options out there (some of which I have zero experience with...I'm certainly not claiming to have it all figured out). But these three offer reliable products at fair prices. Buy PSA/BCM direct, and use a web browser to shop around for the right deal on a DD.

There are a handful of companies I continue to buy from. That's not to say they're the only good options. But they've never failed me, so consider it allegiance or an educated consumer that keeps returning to those sources.

I own 2 RRA AR's and other than my 2 Noveske's they are the most accurate AR's I own. I prefer them over the Colt, S&W, BCM and POF I also own.

Yeah I love my RRA. I don't even have a problem with the extra weight some of the other guys complain about with the RRA rifles. Of course the first long gun I trained CQB with was a Mossberg 500 with a 5 point stock on it. It was so heavy in the front everything I've ever used after that feels great.

What did somebody forget to engage their safety and shoot the dogs front teeth out? Or are we blaming that on the Glock shooters?

Default I'm gonna have to go with the other guy

I'd definitely recommend the PSA/ Aimpoint Pro combo for 999.99. Can't beat that IMO. I own one, or owned one, and it performed flawlessly. Live in Greenville, SC too where they have a store, and I'll tell you their products perform GREAT. It's a no brainer, if you want a optic like an Aimpoint, but who doesn't?
