case,

Yes, and some of the highest quality rifles available along with Stag, Daniel Defense, and LMT. These rifles are built at a bench by weapons people not an assembly line. And the 2 stage national match trigger RRA has is a fine trigger. I have several of thier rifles including 223/5.56 Elite Car A-4, LAR-8 in 16" (308) and a 458 SOCOM pictured below. All are 1 MOA guns at 100 yards off the bench. I have others but they are by far my favorite rifles.

RRA makes great AR's. They do not need a chart to tell them what works with the platform. If anyone is looking for a quality complete rifle or tighter groups do not overlook RRA. Excellent fit and finish, reliable and accurate!

I think I hear the mil-spec ninjas coming... I'm out.

I have 2 RRA rifles. An Elite Comp and an Elite Car A4 and both are tack drivers. The fit and finish is excellent as well as their NM trigger.

Camo,

You are correct the Mil Spec issue with commercial type rifles is a sales ploy for the biggest part. Most good manufacturers like Rock River keep closer tolerances than Mil Spec requirements. In fact if you follow the exact guidelines in the Mil Spec Manual I know of hardly any that are true mil spec and would pass government inspection as far as mil-spec goes. Some do not realize some little issues with being a mil spec rifle. One for example that is very simple. Mil Spec states all surfaces must be plated or coated with XYZ. So for example with the Rock River Arms Rifles and several others they finish their barrels with the front sight A Post on the barrel. This makes their rifles non mil-spec because the barrel is not finished and shiny if you were to take the A Post off. Mil-Spec requires it be finished under the A Post (Front Sight Housing) on the barrel. Rock River polishes their M-4 Feed Ramps after the barrel is finished making them very smooth and shiny. Mil-Spec polishes the feed ramps then finishes the barrels. So moral of the story what makes the difference in our world if the ramps are polished before finishing or after. I will tell you one thing a Rock River Rifle will feed frangible ammunition when others will not due to the fine job they do on their ramps. Mil-Spec Extension Tubes (Buffer Tubes) are 1.146-48 in diameter on a Mil Spec and the Commercial with the 5 degree angle on the rear of the tube and are 1.170 in diameter which in my opinion other than selecting the correct stock who cares. Carrier Key Screws must be staked at 3 and 9 o'clock and at a 45 degree angle. Who cares as long as it does not come loose for our application but if it is not it is not technically Mil-Spec, And yes there are other manufacturers who also do a good job keeping excellent tolerances on their rifles but by the letter they are not technically Mil Spec. I am not at all implying that a Mil-Spec rifle is bad at all but it is not the prize some would want you to believe. I have some Colts also and like all black guns of good quality Mil-Spec or Not!

Mil spec is a minimum standard. As soon as you bolt on an aftermarket trigger you have exceeded mil-spec. What if a bcg is staked in 4 places? Who knows what really is mil-spec? It's probably a 3" thick manual full of technical mumbo jumbo. In the end we just usually have to take a manufacturers word for it.

I have a Tactical Operator 2. A lot of gun for the money. I liked it so much, I bought two RRA stripped lowers for builds to be decided later.
My only real problem with RRA is the cliche laden names for their products. (Who's up for the new Ultra Wicked Gnarly Elite Tactical Entry Delta Operator 3...anyone?)

This thread is a breath of fresh air. Keep the RRA love flowing. Only thing RRA I own is the 2 stage trigger, and it's great. Not too light and breaks crisp.

I couldn't imagine paying $1300 for a 458 SOCOM. I don't have $1000 in mine.
RRA builds great rifles,while some guy's will say other wise,I'll take a RRA product over their mil-spec wonders.
I have had zero issues with my RRA 20" varminter over the years,and the 458 always functions like a fine tuned machine.
