    My nephew just purchased an RRA coyote rifle from this guy. He was directed there by someone at RRA.

    It's looks like they have quite a few RRA rifles in stock along with several other hard to find manufacturers.

    Get 'em while you can.

    Are the RRAs hard to find? My LGS had 4-5 on the shelf Friday. I'm finally ready to buy an AR but the RRA is top of my budget.

    Backorders in many places are running out as far as 6 months.

    Will the ban stop an order that is paid for?

    I purchased a RRA 6.8 SPC in early December and have an order number. I also ordered a 223 upper from RRA to swap out on the rifle for just target shooting and then using the 6.8 SPC for hunting season.

    With a possible ban on AR-15's will I still receive my rifle and upper if the ban is put into place prior to my rifle and upper being built and shipped?

    Impossible to know...no one knows what will be banned or how the ban will be implemented. Constitutionally you cannot retroactively make something illegal but this Admin doesn't really seem to care about the Constitution and I'm not betting on this Court either.

    Well that is extremely unfortunate to hear. I spent quite a bit of money on the rifle and the upper because I wanted to have a high quality rifle for multiple purposes (practice shooting and hunting) and the RRA 6.8 and 223 were perfect for that. I am not happy with our current administration and how they feel the constitution can be just shreaded whenever they feel.

    I am a responsible firearm owner and use them properly and I don't know why this government feels to take that away or at least restrict that.

    I just purchased an XD 9 mm and have an FN 40 caliber pistol that I enjoy target shooting with.

    Any suggestions on a multi role target shooting and hunting firearm if my orders are cancelled by the government?

    Their website is shut down and they say aren't even taking calls unless you have already placed an order.

    Well I placed my order in December for the 223 upper before all the Conneticut chaos and the order for the full 6.8 SPC rifle I ordered just after Thanksgiving. I am hoping they can get it built and shipped asap.

    Would the SOCOM II be outlawed under the ban due to the detatchable magazine?

    We're not sure at this point, but don't rule anything out.

    Bought a rra lar-8 308 with a 26" bull barrel in November and they told me when I bought it they had just moved the delivery date to 4 months so there way behind because of the increase in gun orders

    I went to the RRA's website and they have listed the Diane Feinstein's proposal for the assault weapons ban and it includes the following:

    Summary of 2013 Feinstein Assault Weapons
    Legislation
    Bans the sale, transfer, importation, or manufacturing of:
     120 specifically-named firearms
     Certain other semiautomatic rifles, handguns, shotguns that can accept a
    detachable magazine and have one military characteristic
     Semiautomatic rifles and handguns with a fixed magazine that can accept
    more than 10 rounds
    Strengthens the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban and various state bans by:
     Moving from a 2-characteristic test to a 1-characteristic test
     Eliminating the easy-to-remove bayonet mounts and flash suppressors from
    the characteristics test
     Banning firearms with “thumbhole stocks” and “bullet buttons” to address
    attempts to “work around” prior bans
    Bans large-capacity ammunition feeding devices capable of accepting more than
    10 rounds.
    Protects legitimate hunters and the rights of existing gun owners by:
     Grandfathering weapons legally possessed on the date of enactment
    Exempting over 900 specifically-named weapons used for hunting or
    sporting purposes and
     Exempting antique, manually-operated, and permanently disabled weapons
    Requires that grandfathered weapons be registered under the National Firearms
    Act, to include:
    o Background check of owner and any transferee;
    o Type and serial number of the firearm;
    o Positive identification, including photograph and fingerprint;
    o Certification from local law enforcement of identity and that
    possession would not violate State or local law; and
    o Dedicated funding for ATF to implement registration
