    Any one have one? Any good/bad reviews? I know that Rock River bought the design from Bushmaster. But I have not heard much about it. Thinking about getting one.

    I have the 26" Varmint version. Very heavy, but she shoots like a dream. I've got a Zeiss Conquest 6.5x20x50 held on by a LaRue LT104 and I put an ACE skeleton stock on it. Comes with the RR two stage trigger, not a bad trigger for the $$. I'm thinking about having it cut down to 22" and having it threaded so I can put a suppressor on it. I just don't want 35" of barrel sticking out there. It's nice that it takes inch or metric FAL mags, $20 for a 20 rounder. I think that the days of the $8 gunshow FAL mags are all gone now. Ambi mag release as well as ambi bolt catch.

    You won't be dissapointed if you decide on the RR.

    We have a 20" in our test fleet. It is fairly new so no long term feedback but it has handled everything from match to mil surplus ammo. I ordered it when they were first announced and waited for almost two years. It has a Daniel Defense quad rail that I really like but for some reason they dropped that option.

    Just wondering how your 4.5x14x50 scope would work on this rifle? I am going to pick this rifle(20" standard A4) up here in the next week or so.

    Thanks

    It would be a good choice. We ave done plenty of testing on .308s with it. Order with the high rings and you are good to go.
