What to Get Next?

Recommended Posts

I've had a hankering for an AR15 of National Match quality/accuracy.
Like a Service or Match rifle complete Upper from a respected builder like Compass Lake or such.

 

Or maybe just buy a complete rifle.
Something like an RRA LAR-15 NM A2/A4, or perhaps an Armalite M15A4 NM.

There are also a few used guns that fit my criteria Colt AR15 A2 HBAR Sporter setup as a Service Rifle, Krieger barrel 1:7.7, Jewel trigger, double pinned rear, free float match tube, mags, sling and more.

 

Or maybe, maybe I should grab three of PSA's sub $500 ARs and sell them off during the next election/scare.

 

What's a guy to do with such First World decisions?
What think y'all?

I would lean towards a complete rifle of the one's you listed.

I suppose it matters in how you want to use it. Of course a pocket book limitation might come into play too.  :cool:

 

A rifle set up for TRUE National/Service Match work will weigh about 11-13pound with all the goodies on it. I've thought about building one of those because I can but would use it little. I have NIB DPMS  in the safe that only needs a HG change with the leas weights in the butt and under the guard to be competitive.  Those Compass Lake guns are great BTW. If you are a bench style paper puncher than a bull barrel or NM profiled tube is cool though some of my bets work is done with standard weight tubes but then those tubes are$49.95 from Midway either.

 

If you are a run and gun guy, 3Gun, then your choices are mild to wild. You can dump a ton of chance on wannabe winning gear or do it inexpensively and still run with the big dogs. An OTC rifle with a few tweaks fills this bill nicely and will be moire than adequate for accuracy.

 

Hunting fur means light and whippy with good accuracy and dependability. Hunting prairie dogs predicates on if you bench 'em or walk after them.  I hump an 11 pounder for that game. It could also be a big bruiser 25 WSM for elk etc but esoteric surgical instruments are always pretty limited use items.

 

For general use though a decent medium weight gun will fill everything but the NM games. You can put a good tube on it an upgrade the trigger if you want to seriously chase the accuracy dragon.  Believe it or not that doesn't have to be all that expensive.

I pulled the trigger on a new RRA LAR-15 A4 NM.

Has anyone seen/used one of these?

 

Hope you like the RRA

Congrats on the rifle! RRA was my first (and still may, or may not be my only complete) rifle which I purchased many moons ago, but it's a pretty decent one.  On another note: Didn't Rock River sell out the 2A community a few years ago for something or another?
