      A fine riffle, but not an AR clone. It will accept the mags though.

      Add http://www.jprifles.com/index.php. They also produce several AR variants.
      I just bought one of their muzzle brakes. I saw someone firing an AR with one in our last tac rifle match and had to have one. Its the cleanest looking brake. But it is loud.

      LaRue Tactical makes AR uppers. They make some great gear too. Too bad he seems to be a total ass by the way he acts on some other AR boards and I'll never buy one of his products just on principle. Luckily I'm not clearing rooms so not having the absolute best wont kill me cause he does make some of the best stuff in the industry. http://stores.homestead.com/La...t.bok

      i wanted to keep this thread focused on manufacturers that make entire weapons. the only reason is that there are SO MANY companies that make AR components (just lowers, or just uppers, or just furniture) that it would be almost impossible to keep track of. honestly it seems like every day i go to the range i see another AR component from a company i never heard of the week before. i often joke that I am the onlyperson not making an AR clone these days.

      Thanks for posting this up. I've been trying to do research on them myself so that I can purchase the right one for me and now I've got a great place to start. I'm leaning towards the RRA as I've had good experiences with them. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      The RRA is a great weapon for the money. I have two of them and they perform great.

      I had a great evening defending a friend's field from watermelons with a mid-length A2. I'm really interested in this model:

      So maybe in the next few months.

      That pretty nice but I'm not a real fan of that detachable carry handle on that gun and I think that is the only difference between that and a standard flat top mid length like this. http://www.rockriverarms.com/i...26054
      I'd probably do the standard mid A4 then and whatever rear site to it you want. The standard flat top will be more flexible if you ever want to add another kind of optic like an Aimpoint or Eotech.

      Definitely a good call. I'm not seeing any real differences either and I've had my eyes on an Eotech.

      Eotech's are really nice. I have one on my S&W M&P15T and I love it.

      Well I got another chance the other day to fire the M4 with the detachable carry handle at a marauding band of rotting pumpkins. That handle is actually pretty nice and the set of sights on it is no problem at to use. Underneath that handle sits the regular flattop.
      I'm set on that RRA rifle. Soon.
      Also, I picked up a Remington 700 in .223. I'll post up pics soon.
      Happy New Years everyone.

      as much as i love Magpul, lowers only don't count for this list. i wanted more to compile a list of places who manufacture a complete rifle other than just parts. this way if someone comes across an AR variant in the future they'd know whether it was a complete gun or a "kit" which was pieced together.
      that LMT is a nice gun, my personal fave is probably

      POF gas piston carbine
      the only gas impingement AR which grabs me is this one:

      How about the seldom photographed FAL-15...?


      PS: Obin, my LWRC is piston, but is exchangeable with most AR parts --- some piston guns use different bolts, etc...mine looks to be fairly similar to the normal AR bolt though.
