    I'm kicking around the idea of purchasing an AR15. Are the Rock River Arms AR15s reliable and perform well? I'm looking for one that I could mount a tactical weapon light to as well some optical device. Any suggestions from the following: http://www.ordnanceoutsellers.com/rraindex.htm

    Or should I try to build one instead?

    I have a RRA Entry Tactical, each gun is pretty much custom, tight fitting parts. Check at ar15.com for more info. Check out Legal Transfers in the Equipment Exchange or I think their page is ar15sales.com or something like that for the best prices.

    I would recommend one, they are very nice

    You can get rails on the handguards for all your tacticool accesories.

    I wouldnt say each RRA is "custom" but they make great products, dont hesitate to buy.

    Well they have higher quality contol than Bushmaster, every gun is assembled and tested it. They arent mass produced like others are. The fit and finish on them is really nice.

    I can assure you that Bushmaster is a higher volume manufacture than RRA. Bushmaster doesnt have the resources to QA test every rifle.
    I like the fit and finsh of the RRA I got compared to the Bushy I checked out

    I liked the one I checked out too, they are great guns.. but I like the RRA over the Bushy (20") that I looked at

    my RRA lower didnt have a very good trigger, but who knows, i bought it second hand so there could have been non-rra internals in it.

    but having worked for OO, i say buy! james is a great guy.

    excellent choice. Pete is a great guy, hes very busy and sometimes people complain about his attitude, but he really makes sure every customer is happy, he just does not have a ton of time to chat with every customer.
    That being said, he will personally address every phone call and email promptly, and if you call him to see what he can do for you, even if you are not sure what you want, he will not cut you off short, he will make sure he listens, and gives you his fair advice.
