Do you consider RAINIER ARMS as a premium ar-15 ?? Any input will be appreciated
From what I know they seem to be a reputable AR Company.
As far as being a direct comparison to Daniel Defense, Spikes Tactical, Rock River Arms, Stag Arms, LMT (Lewis Machine & Tool) and a few others which in IMO are some of the best. I have no real insight as to where they rank as far as price, quality (which I think the do have) and their durability. They seem to have good ratings. I would check that out before purchasing any gun!
very good ARs.
close to the very top of the line.
They have to be since they sell them on their retail store right alongside LWRC, POF and LMT.... which are the Top Tier in prestige.
( I personally feel the Sig516 is right up there with the very best of any AR, but it is too "cheap" in MSRP, (1400) compared those).
if u have an opportunity to snag one in this market w/o paying an arm and a leg I'd do it.
Actually i was able to pick one up for $650, but there's isn't too much information on them
Used I see. Only you yourself will know after you get it and shoot a bunch of ammo through it. May be a good buy. Who knows yet?
The good thing about a ar-15 is that parts are interchangeable, after shipping I'll be $650 into it.
That is very true. Just be aware some parts are getting harder to find. I am running into that as I refurbish a couple of Ar's I have.
Hopefully, your barrel will be in great condition.
Yes it's getting hard finding a bcg, but my thinking is that right now in the $600 range you have a hard time finding a dpms, del-ton, anderson, palmetto state armory, aero, so picking up a RAINIER ARMS in that price range i figured it was a good deal
The description looks like it’s been really used. You don’t know how it is inside. All it says “still cycles good”. It sold for what you’d expect on GB. You’ll find many similar or better deals.
I'm a risk taker, worst case scenario I'll have to replaced a barrel ??
Perhaps you will. BUT, you do not necessarily have to buy a complete Bolt Carrier Group. Usually, after I learned, I just buy a complete bolt and put it into my old carrier.
Power to you then.
I've bought dozens of ar-15, never had to replaced a barrel or a bolt. I've never gotten a lemon
Good for you then.
The price of ammo is so high that nobody can afford to shoot out a barrel, once i received the RAINIER ARMS i tell you what shape the ar-15 is in
I did one time get one that was not as described.
Paid for used "near new under 300 rounds roundcount"... was clearly more like 3000-5000 rds based on the green copper deposits in the barrel.
Also had a stripped crew in the hardbound right where I needed to mount my VFG.
Sold it in frustration with full disclosure.
Also most manufacturers of premium rifle will replace your barrel for free when worn out
(Ask me how I know )
PS: Checked the link.. it looks great love the FDE.
clearly a hi end gun.
(but hate the muzzle brake.... this calibre really doesn't generate enough recoil to justify the extra signature (flash at night, dust in daytime, and extra noise day or night) generated from a muzzle break .....that can help locate the enemy your position easier...
Real world finding people who are shooting at you is not to be taken for granted..
So IMO any AR with a muzzle brake is set up as a competition rifle rather than an Infantry rifle..
Give me a flash hider anytime..but this a philosophical disagreement with a configuration and does not really reflect on the rifle itself.
Not in any way shape or form trying to talk down your choice.. just a point I feel that needs making for the greater good on this board.)
You robbed the guy
