    Geeze thats nice, read the specs on it and seems like an exciting rifle to have. Somehow I don't think we in CA could order one of those. But I sure would like one.

    Chris - I was shooting a SAW a couple of weeks ago. The guy who owns it has an integral suppressor on it. WHOA!!! Big Fun!! I can have one too, all I need do is fork over $25,000 and I too can have a SAW. Yea, I'm holding my breath for that one.

    best to check your state laws regarding hi cap guns/mags. Not sure, but thought NJ didn't allow hi cap mags. Also as good as a Rock River is , other manufacturers are just as good. Shop around a little.

    I had to order it from a gunshop in Minnesota, JS Custom Guns, (Rock River is short on chrome lined barrels, they told me 60 days.) It cost me $2330. including shipping. Included is a Rock River Arms carrying handle to mount on the flat top receiver, the EO Tech Holo-Sight, Surefire quad rail mounted flashlight, cleaning kit and 1 magazine. Also included is an Eagle Discrete nylon carrying case and tac sling.
    I haven't had the chance to shoot it yet but the trigger is very nice.

    All in all it looks to be an incredible weapon. I am having some difficulty deciding where to mount the touch pad for the SureFire but otherwise I think this gun is exactly what I was looking for in a new AR format.

    rocky...

    mags have to be pinned at 15, although it can be a temporary pin.

    but i think NJ still has an AWB in place :( that makes it no fun.

    I know RRA is not the only manufacturer, but there is something I like about getting all the pieces I wanted in one box that just...well...makes me happy :) and sometimes it's worth paying for to me :)

    LOL
