Re: Want an AR15, what's the best out of box?

Lamiglas,

I've got a couple RRAs in different configurations, though most are set up as competitive Service Rifles. Good guns, and a very reasonable price. As Nomad alluded to, they're doing several govt contracts and have been chosen by a number of agencies out there.

Specify on precisely what you want the rifle for, and we should be able to dial in a little closer on what might serve you best.

Re: Want an AR15, what's the best out of box?

I see a lot of guys pushing the RRA saying it has gov agencies etc who use them but asside from your local PDs who are you guys talking about? They have no current goverment contracts to my knowledge? Additional most cops are not gun guys so a lot of PDs have made poor and un informed decsions with there local tax payers money is concerned.

All they hobby guns may serve you fine but he asked for the best and RRA is not it and the prices are so close why would you buy one when when you can have a colt, bcm for around the same price?

I did my time with the hobby guns before I knew better and its a road I will never travel again there is no subsitute for quality.

They are being used by Govt. and you might be surprised at some of the talent on a Govt. range. Some high speed training offered if you like shooting and want it.

Re: Want an AR15, what's the best out of box?

I have a few AR's and they work fine for my intended use. From what I have been exposed to the operator series from RRA looks like a great value. I dont have the experience with them like some of the guys that have replied so I didnt want to just recommend it to the op. I figured I would just bring it up as an option for the op, so of the more experienced could advise the op if it was one he should take a look at. Thank u to all that have replied

Re: Want an AR15, what's the best out of box?

I am not interested in spending more for an AR than I did my fully outfitted long range gun, so I want to keep the cost at or below $1000.
From doing more research I am leaning heavily towards the Colt 6920, but I still have not made up my mind yet.
I have heard good things about Bushmaster in the past, but from what I have been reading lately it looks like they are more on the lower to middle end of quality. Seems the same for DPMS as well, but again I don't know for sure.
This gun will more than likely be a two hundred yard and in gun. I have no desire to fit quality optics on a gun with a 16inch barrel, so I will just put a red dot on it as I have one that I think would work fine.

Re: Want an AR15, what's the best out of box?

Throwing my hat in Im going with Bushmaster I have 2 and my dad has 1, never had any problems with any of the guns some people say BMs are junk but I will put my Bushy against any brand any day. I handload for mine and get under .3" groups. Ive never seen the cost to use advantage of buying LMT, Noveske or the SUPPOSED higher end guns if your gonna use it to punch paper, kill deer, groundhogs, varmints etc. etc. save your money and get some other play toys. Buy a run of the mill AR and have fun. I payed under $900 for all my Bushys and know people that have done the same.
