    Almost too pretty to shoot- New rifle!!

    Got rid of my Sig 556 just because there was not enough after market support for it. Got a new Rainier Arms Ruc Rev 16'' to replace it and it came in today! Can't wait to get to the range next week!

    What a letdown! I quickly opened it up thinking it was going to be something like a real rifle, like maybe a Winchester 94, M70, Henry, or something with blue steel and checkered wood!

    I feel more let down than a teen boy after his first date.

    Another look-alike, evil black gun. I feel more let down than a teen boy asking for that first date.

    Yeah, I can see how you'd get disappointed. :)

    Nice rifle, welcome to the dark side.


    I'm wondering what type of light that is, and how well it's going to hold up to eating muzzle blasts all day.

    Nice, I got into the evil black guns about a year ago. Got a DPMS LR.308. Love large calibers.
    When I brought it home wife said "Its an army gun, why did you get it?
    My answer.... Because Obama said I should not have one..
    Plan on getting one for each of my sons soon.
    But I still love my Henry lever action with real wood stock. Of course it had to be .44 magnum
    Really want a M1 Garand though before we can't get our hands on that classic.

    You say that just because at my 40th HS reunion the girl I dated told me she did because I had the hottest car in school. All those years thinking it was me...

    My wife has one on her rifle, the Magpul AFG. We both love it. I'm a bit jealous of it. They're cheap, too (price-wise, not quality. Quality is top-notch). I think I'll probably buy another'n for my rifle.


    And OP, I'd definitely move that light down a good bit. No need for it to really extend much beyond the rail system, but it definitely needs to be away from the muzzle. JMO, YMMV.
