Default RRA Delta or Elite Comp

I have the opportunity to pick up wither the Rock River Arms Delta Mid-Length (here http://www.rockriverarms.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=category.display&category_id= 568 ) or the Rock River Arms Elite Comp (here http://www.rockriverarms.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=category.display&category_id= 374 ) for a bit of a discount. I can't say how much, sorry.

The Elite Comp has a free-float, and comes already with a chrome lined barrel. But is that worth the extra $450 stock price? Or are you paying for the added assembly?

This is a gift for my dad, and I'm not a rifle mastermind, that's why I'm looking for some insight. It would be for some coyote hunting, some plinking, and some private family courses.

I'm just wondering what the Elite Comp has that makes me need that, and spend the extra 4bills over the Delta Mid-Length. Thank you!

I would get the Elite Comp.

Here's why:
I prefer the Elite Comp's buttstock
You get flip up sights ($204 value)
Free float rail instead of drop in rails ($155 value)
Tactical Muzzle Brake ($35 value)

I was worried about the flip up sights value, because he's going to be putting a Holo sight on it right away...damn. Thanks Argyle.

Can you think of any other products that will give me that same type of setup for a quality, durable, reasonable price? Just off the top of your head of course. I can always do more research. Thanks again.

Those are Rock River's prices and in the same price range as Troy, Daniel Defense and Larue.

I would always recommend an Argyle Armoring/SWAT Firearms AR-15.

I love the free float on the elite. Exactly what I am looking for. Anyone know where I can get one of those.

You can buy them from Rock River.
