Man looks good Droptrd.What kind of optics do you have on yours, and how does it work with the Dominator sight.

Its the Vortex Strikefire red dot. So far I like it. The dominator sight is co-witness. I really wanted an EOTech but ran out of funds so I settled on the Vortex. Its really good for the money IMO. Im putting a Midwest Industries handguard on it here pretty soon. The RRA 1/2 quad is heavy!

It is heavy but I like it,the only down fall to it is that it gets pretty hot after a hundred rounds or so.I'm looking for a sight now but running out of funds myself.I would post some pic's but can't get them to fit any help on that.

Friend of mine has a similar model. Very impressed with the rifle overall, especially the trigger, the half- quad forend, and the performance / fit / finish. Enjoy

I'm looking at a few different sights,EoTech, Aimpoint, and if I hold off for about a year maybe a Trijicon.What do you guys think,not just the one's that I have mention.What are some good different sights.

I added a couple different things to my gun today and they work great.I added a Magpul MagLink and a Magpul B.A.D. Lever/Battery Assist Device.This was a very nice addition to this gun.

Just curious. Why did you mate a fixed rear sight to the flip down YHM front sight/gas block?

A friend of mine bought a RRA earlier this year. I was really surprised, the quality has improved significantly from the commercial grade RRA carbine I owned several years ago.

This was the only way that I could get the gun at the time that I got it.RRA was 4 months out local gun dealers were 7 months out on getting one.I went on gunbroker.com and thats the only way I could find one and thats the way it came.I wanted flip up rear sights,so the next thing I up grade will be putting some type of optic's on the top and flip up rear sights.

I just bought a RRA the other day. I have the 24" Varmint EOP model. Haven't got to shoot it yet, due to weather and work issues.

I got lucky, a local shop found me one at a distributor of theirs. It was the last one in the pipeline. My friend went the next day to find one, and nobody had them in stock. He did find some with shorter barrels, but no other 24" models.

It's an extremely nice rifle, can't wait to see how it shoots. RRA says 3/4 MOA guaranteed.

I got to shoot it a couple of weeks ago, and as promised it shot 3/4" groups at 100 yards. This was with 55 grain PMP factory ammo.

I believe I can do better with my handloads once I make some up. I added a Magpul PRS stock to it, and put a Bushnell Elite 6-24 x 40 scope on it. I plan to shoot out to 300 yards pretty soon.

Very happy with it. My shooting buddy located one after my last post, and his works just as well.

I have 1 in 8" twist on mine, and plan to shoot 69 and 77 grain SMKs once I get a chance to load some. Should tighten the group up even more.
