RRA is a pretty decent brand.
i would look into PSA, stag, for great rifles that would be less than 1k. also i suggest building one.
its very easy. i was unsure at first. and have since built three. also by building it yo ucan select what parts you want and how much you want to spend!

A similar amount of research and intelligence is necessary to assemble a PC or an AR. It's not that much trouble putting components together; the hard part for either one is knowing what you want and what you need then avoiding junk parts. Sadly most people are lazy and end up building the wrong PC or AR.

There almost all good pick one out but dont buy it yet and then come and ask questions , dont buy it then come ask about it because the damage is already done and its urs. you also need to ask yourself whats your limit on $$$ and what do you want to do with it ? how long of barrel would you like to have and how much do you plan on shooting it ?
I truly would ask if you think the brand you have stated is great hands down over something else please explain

On March this year i placed an order of the Tactical Operator 2 via my LGS. It would come with a chromed BCG. Promised lead time was 3 months max. Yes i know chromed is just cosmetic. The regular works as great as the chromed. Then somehow 2-3 weeks before the end of promised lead time.. i browsed their site.. turned out i noticed they put announcement that they won't be putting chromed BCGs given on new or current orders due to shortages. They didn't even notify me or my LGS. Called my LGS the next day about it and found out another thing.. they extended my lead time for another 2 months. So what da heck? I cancelled the order and bought stripped lower, parts, upper and built my own. Happy with my decision. And yet i haven't even been into their site ever since.
I just shopped, helped and built one for my friend last week. Using PSA blemished lower, complete MOE lower kit, BCM middy LW, BCM BCG and Bushnell TRS25 with UTG mount for about $1100 i think. My friend is so happy with it. And me specially happy got the joy of building one for free.
So the OP, as others mentioned.. take your time and look other brands for alternatives. They are as good or even better!!
