America has a love affair with the modern sporting rifle…and if you’ve never really understood why, I’d like to introduce you to the Rock River Arms RRAGE Carbine. Trim, easy to carry and handle, and constructed of the same top-quality materials and to the same standards as far more expensive AR-15-style rifles, the RRAGE is (despite its name) a very Zen experience to shoot. No, that’s not a typo–there are two R’s for Rock River–and with an MSRP of $760, you can assume that you’ll be able to find it at dealers for less.
Chambered in 5.56 NATO, the RRAGE Carbine is perfect for target shooting, hunting predators and medium-sized game, or just clearing your Back 40 of varmints…and once you shoot it, you’ll see why so many shooters are so passionate about this platform. The RRage breaks new ground in semi-auto MSR design and performance with its clean and trim monolithic-style upper receiver/handguard profile, but does so at a price point more in line with what you’d expect to pay for a good-quality deer rifle than the nosebleed-high MSRPs of the first few generations of AR-15.
The RRAGE is based on Rock River Arms’ new extruded flat top upper receiver. This 6061T aluminum receiver exhibits the crisp lines and defined angles commonly associated with more expensive billet uppers while delivering comparable strength and precision dimensions. Matched to the receiver is a similarly constructed 6061T aluminum free-float handguard that blends almost seamlessly with the upper to provide an elegant, unitized profile and balanced strength and rigidity across the optics platform. The CAR-length handguard boasts a full-length MS1913 top rail and features the popular MLOK rail configuration for easy accessory adaptation. The MLOK system along the side and bottom surfaces lets shooters run a clean handguard or add only the rail accessories needed to help maintain a sleek, snag-free signature.
