I have seem to be on an AR frenzy as of late.

I have been thinking hard about one in 308 and since I just put about 4k into getting my M6A3 not really sure I want to go and start a larger endevor with the LWRC REPR so I was looking at the RRA

Any thoughts on it?

My buddy has one and it is sweet.. Very accurate as well.. I have been trying to get one now for a little over 5 weeks and no one has them in stock. They are on back order. Soon as I find one I am picking it up that is for sure..

I was in the same situation as you last yr.I was looking at POF nice rifle $2500 with no sights.'Looked at DPMS sass same pric didnt like the sights on it!
Also looked at ELITE OPERATOR at the same time.I liked the yh flipup front sight,RRA match trigger,cryo treated barrel and the freefloat handguard.I also liked how tight the fit and finish was of the RRA as compared to DPMS side by side.The LAR 8 was $1500 otd cheaper than DPMS and POF by at least $900! So I thought about the addititional cost for good Glass on any one of the rifles.POF min $3500 with glass DPMS $3200 RRA $2500!!!
I bought the RRA plus a LEUPOLD mark4 m2 with rings!I didnt realize that the LAR8 had dual mag and bolt relase until I put the other rifles back nice surprise.Plus it will use inch or metric fal mags.I didn't know how well the cryo barrel was never read any info on it.After break in I was surprised at the accuracy with Port and Men surplus at 100 yds moa!!I The cryo at work with my handloads sub moa! Yes the LMT and POF and the other high dollar rifles are nice! Quick change barrels ,piston driven does it make them better?IMO no just cost more!So get the ELITE OPER you won't regret it!! Wow yankee I just noticed you live in nj I will let you shoot my LAR to see what I'm talking about!!

I was seriously considering the RRA LAR-8 Elite Operator but now I have my heart set on the DPMS Panther 7.62 NATO Mark 12 . Magpul has affordable mags for the DPMS and are readily available.

Not trying to derail this thread, just something to compare to is all.
