Rock River Arms has introduced a new AR-15 variant: the LAR-15 Elite Comp. Guaranteed to shoot 1.5″ MOA, the Elite Comp features a number of very nice features, typically seen only on nicely upgraded AR rifles.
Chambered in 5.56 NATO (.223 Remington), the LAR-15 Elite Comp has a forged A4 upper with a 16″ chrome-lined barrel with a 1:9″ twist. The threaded barrel features a RRA Tactical Muzzle Brake standard.
Sighting is handled by the combination of a flip front sight gas block assembly and a PADS flip rear sight.
The trigger is a two-stage match trigger in a winter trigger guard. The front end features a RRA half-quad, free-float mid-length rail system. The pistol grip is an Ergo SureGrip.
The buttstock is my favorite: the Magpul CTR stock. The Magpul is fully adjustable, feels very good when the rifle is mounted, and is designed in such a way as to prevent any inadvertent adjustment of the length.
I currently have a LAR-15 from Rock River Arms that I bought before they announced the Elite Comp. On my LAR-15, I installed the Magpul buttstock, the front flip up sight/gas block, rear flip up sight, and the SureGrip. All totaled, I paid more than what Rock River is asking for the Elite Comp.
The LAR-15 Elite Comp ships with only one magazine. I would expect at least two magazines at this price point.
MSRP is listed at $1470, and advertised prices start very close to this number. Dealers are accepting orders now, and the Elite Comp is due to ship in the third quarter of 2008.
