    Ordered my RRA upper on December 2nd last year. UPS tried to drop it off on Tuesday and missed me by 5 minutes. Unfortunately, it had to be signed for, so I finally had time to get it today. Man they coated the thing in oil like mad, looks sweet though, gonna try to get out to the range on Sunday to run some rounds through it. It's attached to a Double Star lower.

    Nice upper :bigthumb:


    After I pay off the credit card, trade in my 05 R6 for an 08 R6, I'm going to
    buy a 20" upper to rice the hell out of. :)

    1:8 SS barrel (probably OD green), FF rail (Daniel Defense or Larue), Harris
    Bipod, throw my 10x SuperSniper into a larue scope mount and be done. (Means
    I'll have to get a new scope for the Savage...bummer).


    Then I'll buy another lower and build it in 10 minutes. :run:

    Been tempted to snag a detachable carry-handle type sight for it.

    There's a free spare pivot pin retainer ... somewhere ... in your place if you make the same mistake I did when you put it together.

    So I'm new to ARs so forgive me is this is a dumb question, but why do some ppl not have stocks on their rifles? Like the bottom rifle in the lower pic. I've seen a few other pics here with "stock-less" ARs.

    It's a 'pistol'
    Rifles need to have barrels short than 16'' so if you want a barrel shorter than that you either have to pay a $200 tax to the ATF to register it as a short barreled rifle or have the lower receiver transferred to you as a pistol. You can't add a shoulder stock to a pistol though, that makes it illegal.

    Classifies it as a handgun and not a short barreled rifle therefore does not require ATF NFA paperwork.

    There's just something about AR-15s.
