Default Rainer Arms

I've heard of them but that's about it. Are they any good? I have a chance to get a stripped Gen2 upper I think, for 130. Should I go ahead and jump on it or should I wait until the 27th when Midway gets their stripped DD upper in with the dust cover and forward assist for 130 as well?

I bought one of their compensators and the purchase experience was solid. Have not had a chance to install it yet. The comp shows quality workmanship, that's about all the help i can give you right now haha

I've bought a few times from Rainier. Highly recommended. As far as which upper, that's up to you.

Every time I shop Rainier, it's a great experience. I have one of their 24" heavy barrels on an AR10. Great company.

Big fan of the company. Had great experiences with them during my 1st AR build. Bought one of their select barrels and a samson rail. Order was processed and shipped quick

Would the Gen2 fit find on my YHM lower? I was looking at it and comparing it to the Gen1 since they were the same price, and the description of the Gen2 was saying it fits well with the RA and MEGA lowers and the Gen1 description was saying it fits well with Colt, Stag, Bushmaster etc. is there any difference? Both have the extended M4 feed ramps

I've purchased from Rainier several times and it's always been a great experience. I would recommend them for sure.

Ranier arms started out as a custom shop making custom uppers and rifles for customers.

They have a stellar reputation and top notch customer service. You are in good hands when you order from them.

Ive got one of their match grade A4 uppers. Very very very good upper very close tolerances with as square a reciever to barrel alignment as ive ever seen. Mine is mated up to a krieger barrel and a night force benchrest scope on top of a rra lower
