Of course one of the often heard complaints about RRA's is that they are heavy. While they DO have a lightweight profile barrelled AR-15, their standard barrel is a heavy profile. See the barrel...

I have a Harris on my 7mm Rem. Mag. rifle because it has a very heavy recoil and I think it can take the abuse. However, for my .22's and even my AR-15 that have little or no recoil, I use the...

I used an Armalite lower I got at my local gun store for $130 out the door. It was excellent quality. I then used a Rock River Arms (RRA) lower parts kit with single stage trigger and a mil-spec....

I have two of the 3-9X32 Simmons .22 Mag's on my two 10-22's and they are outstanding performers. For the $45 to $65 you'll pay for them, it is really hard to beat the quality. If you want a fine...

No Six, I'd say you have it nailed pretty well. Adjustable objective scopes are nice, but are not all that common on long range scopes. Yes Bushmaster, you try to set the AO on the front to the...

Nice, 100 MOA of adjustment (50 up & 50 down) with the additional 20 MOA up built into your new mount ought to give you plenty to work with for whatever range you decide to work at. Certainly beyond...

REALLY nice setup JJ!!! I know your wife will enjoy the way it works for her. :cool:

If I may ask, where'd you buy the scope and at about what price range? I've had my eye on the same scope.

Wow, 15 up and 15 down for a total of 30 isn't very much. Some other brand scopes have as much as 80 total. Maybe another brand may be appropriate for this use..

Even within a particular brand...

Yeah, not an improvement IMO. 2.5" to 3" from the center of the bore to the centerline of the scope is about the ideal height for a scope on an AR.

Bushmaster, all joking aside my guess is it's the rings giving you the problem and not the scope. You might try exchanging the front ring and the back ring. I've heard of that sort of thing fixing...

They make scope mounts for AR-15's (and others) that have additional elevation built into them. :cool:

To be fair, the $350 rifle was with the factory black Tupperware stock. It still shot with the same great accuracy, but I like the laminated wood thumbhole so much better. The new wood stock from...
