  • It took a while but I just acquired the Rock River Arms AR15

    In addition to increased production by recognized AR15 vendors, each and every rifle supplier that has a pulse seems to be producing some model of an AR-15 today. 50 % of those rifles are direct-impingement types with the same solid design envisioned by Eugene Stoner when it was first introduced more than 40 years ago.<br /><br />Rock River Arms was founded 11 years ago by 2 brothers, Mark and Chuck Larson, who worked out of a garage. It has grown progressively ever since as well as now employs over ninety people. Although Rock River produces firearms for several government agencies, the actual majority of their product sales are to the civilian marketplace. Rock River Arms offers fifty or so designs of rifles, but customers can make up their own configurations, utilizing countless parts substitutions - sights, rails, stocks, barrel length and contour, and more. Rock River will additionally include accessories like flashlights and red dot sights. Rock River Arms is like an a la carte workshop for weapons. Rock River doesn’t make numerous components on site. Rock River designs and specifications components, then receive them, perform inspections, finish them, assemble them into weapons and ship them out. The Rock River Arms factory is actually complete with a buffing and blasting room, where raw forgings become finished parts. Rock River Arms is definitely a family small business with the brothers Chuck and Mark Larson as well as their father and one of their sons working at the plant. Looking about the factory there were many boxes of rifle carrier groups, essentially the bolts of the rifles. Rock River Arms offers an almost countless number of chambering options for the basic AR platform. Once you own a lower half which consists of the stock and receiver, you can easily acquire upper halves (barrel, carrier group, and gas system) in all kinds of chambering and interchange them freely. There's even a company that offers a .410 shotgun upper half for the AR15 rifle.<br /><br />Components are measured as well as examined as they arrive in to the manufacturing facility and at various stages during production. Tested for hardness, testing is done all the way down to the flash hider. All of the little sub assemblies - sights, gas blocks, carrier groups, safeties, and so on -- come together at the stations where the upper halves and lower halves are put together. Once at a work station the gunsmith assembles the upper half of what will be a future complete rifle. The gunsmith takes special care to assemble the upper with the silver tube running along the top of the barrel which directs gas from the gas block to run the action. During the upper half assembly, the headspace gauges are used to check the dimensions of the chamber. The bolt of a firearm should close over the green “go” gauge but not close over the red “no go,” which is slightly oversized. Cartridges can rupture, sometimes dangerously, in an oversized chamber. Rock River offers the choice of a standard trigger or a two-stage National Match trigger for serious target shooting. A two stage trigger is the chosen style for military rifle competitions such as the famous National Match at Camp Perry, Ohio. Pulling a two-stage trigger, you feel slack as the trigger moves a short distance, then a light, clean break. The Rock River Arms gunsmith will check the weight of the trigger pull by dangling a 4 1/ 2 lb weight from the trigger. If the weight doesn’t trip the trigger, he will file the trigger sear to lighten the pull. Lighter trigger pulls are also available from leading Rock River Arms dealers. Lowers also come with options such as an oversized winter trigger guard, originally designed for police officers who needed to keep their hands inside warm gloves but still be ready to shoot in cold weather. Winter trigger guards work perfectly for winter coyote hunters as well. As the final pieces are assembled into a lower half of what will be the final rifle, this lower half could also be matched to an endless combination of barrel lengths, barrel contour, hand-guards and calibers.<br /><br />As uppers and lowers are joined by a master gunsmith assembler, the firearms are tagged and prepared for the test fire phase of the product.<br /><br />The shipping area is a flurry of activity. Parts coming in and rifles going out. A literal symphony in action as the Rock River arms factory pushes in raw components destined to become full rifles. Oddly enough, there seems to be no end in sight as the operation continues day after day.<br /><br />Preparation for the firing test begins with the loading of magazines which is a full time job. The finisher snaps 20-30 rounds into waiting magazines in preparation for the final function test<br /><br />Several times a day, assemblers and firearm testers load the Rock River vehicle with weapons and take all of them away to the range. Shooting from the back of the vehicle, each and every firearm with sights is sighted in, and then test-fired for function. Testers shoot at least two magazines through the fully automatic guns. Who says semi automatics aren’t accurate? With barrels provided by Wilson Barrel, the primary attraction of Rock River Arms rifles is that they shoot far better than advertised.<br /><br />It's not often you discover a seriously great tactical firearm at a very reduced price tag. A lot of of the time your required to forfeit cost for quality. Would seem to be like things are evolving. Just recently I finally after a short wait obtained a Rock River Arms AR-15 AR15 BB2522 Operator 2 from my favorite area transfer dealer.

The stock has a ribbed rubber butt pad that slides down with a push-button release to uncover the two storage compartments, sealed with O-rings. Each will hold either 2 AA batteries or 3 CR123 lithium batteries. As part of the package I had my range of four rear sights: a traditional bolt-on A2 carry handle; a stand-alone rear sight; a RRA Dominator2 with an improved rail designed specifically for use with the EOTech Holosight; or the RRA tactical carry handle that features an elevated rail just below the level of the sights. The mil-spec magazines supplied with all Operator 2 Models are manufactured by NHMTG (Colt). For range work I equipped the Operator with a stand-alone rear sight behind an Aimpoint Comp ML2, and then tried the Operator with a Dominator2 rear sight from a friend combined with an EOTech 512 (AA battery model). For reliability testing I used a Trijicon 4x32 ACOG with no sights.<br /><br /><br /><br />Here are the features just as supplied through my online dealer.<br /><br />Manufacturer Rock River Arms<br />Model: Operator 2 Series <br />Type: direct-impingement AR semi auto <br />Capacity: accepts AR-15 magazines of any capacity <br />Caliber: 5.56 NATO chamber <br />Barrel length: 16-inches chrome moly, 1:9" twist <br />Overall length: 37 inches <br />Weight: 7.2 pounds (Entry and Tactical), 8.0 pounds () <br />Hand guard: Half-Quad aluminum free float (BB2522) <br />Stock: RRA Operator CAR compartment stock, ERGO Sure Grip pistol grip <br />Sights: post front; wind age-adjustable rear aperture <br />Trigger: RRA National Match, 4 pounds pull <br />Sale Price: $1,000.00 , Retail $1,515.00<br /><br /><br /><br />Most dealers in my location desired retail plus which did not set well with my budget.

The majority of of the time your made to sacrifice price for quality. Seems to be like things are evolving. A short while ago I finally obtained my personal Rock River Arms AR-15 AR-15 Model BB2522 Rock River Arms Operator 2 through my favorite local transfer dealer. I've been saving my weapon money for about a 12 month period.Ever since I started reading web content about the Rock River Arms Tactical Rifle AR15 Model BB2522 Rock River Arms Operator 2 and got a opportunity to fire my pals at the neighborhood range, I understood I had to have one. I haven't had a chance to fire the Rock River Arms Tactical Rifle AR-15 Model BB2522 Rock River Arms Operator 2 yet, but I've been gathering a number of accessories for the Rock River Arms AR15 BB2522 Operator 2 while I was conserving my dollars.<br /><br />The Rock River Arms AR15 BB2522 Operator 2 rifle includes a Rock River Arms winter trigger guard and the ERGO Sure Grip. While I prefer a hard pistol grip, I have long recommended use of pistol grips such as the ERGO that add a little material to the backstrap of the rifle. Standard AR pistol grips are too small for anyone who do not have child-size hands, and they encourage poor shooting technique by placing the second joint of the finger on the trigger. Upgraded grips such as the ERGO correct that problem. The rifles are built with the RRA Star safety/selector, which sticks out a bit more from the receiver than a mil-spec safety. It is not ambidextrous. The safety worked just like it should, but I like the looks of the mil-spec design better probably because its what I'm used to. When I first picked up the Operator and tried out the trigger, I was really shocked. As a general rule, production line triggers on AR-15s are awful. Not so the Operator trigger. Its crisp, light, two-stage trigger that breaks right at 4 lbs -not what I was expecting at all. This was before I realized that all the Operator rifles come equipped with Rock River Arms well-respected two-stage National Match trigger system, which includes a lightened hammer.<br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br />Most dealers in my area wanted retail plus which did not set well with my budget. I acquired my Operator from Class 3 Weapons in Houston Texas at a substantial savings of only $969.00 which included shipping.<br /><br /><br /><a href="http://iflry.org/members/abesummers23.aspx&quo...
