    After researching the features I want in an AR-15, I have decided to buy a Rock River Arms Tactical Operator 2 AR-15 (one of the specials Rock River is offering right now). I would love to hear from any of you that have or had one. Thanks!

    I have had my Operator 2 for 3 months. It is the only AR I have ever had. I do not know much about AR's but some of the guys I shoot with have gone over it and 3 of them said that it is as good as the ones they spent 1500 and 1600 for.
    I have put about 600 rounds down range and it shoots very well.
    As with all of my rifles I cleaned them after 5 rounds till I had shot 100 rounds. I think that helps make a good shooter a GREAT shooter.
    Have fun, shoot it and make up your own mind about your rifle.

    I have 1 that I got a few months ago, I could not be more pleased with it, I carry it every day with me and usually shot daily, I have a cattle ranch, it runs 100% any ammo fed to it, very accurate also, I mounted an EOTech on it and thats all, I could not be more pleased with it, I like it better than my Colt 2 to 1. I shot 2 coyotes with it before dark tonight, a 3 gun match last weekend and flawless performance. To test it I put a 36x BR scope on it and it will shoot under an inch at 100 yds 5 shot groups. I know others bash everything but so be it, mine works and I would buy another in a minute. It has served me well so far. 4 of my friends have them and not 1 problem at all.

    I have a Rock River. I don't think you can get a better gun for the money.

    LOL:rofl: Show me a 1,000 dollar gun with that many upgrades on it, and Im not talking about Olympic arms with a 49 dollar lower on it. Free shipping, free rear site options, chrome bolt carrier group, free float quad rail, 2 stage RRA trigger, ergo grip, two 30 round mags, RRA operator stock.............YOU need to do your homework and go to RRA website and check out the gun before you make a fool of yourself.

    So you are looking for a "product review" on something you have already purchased?

    Not much except they all cost a significent amount of money. RRA makes a quality rifle. The OP is not a SEAL, RRA makes a fine gun for civilians who are not power mall ninjas.

    when mine breaks I will fix it, my Colt has had 3 barrels, extractor, cam pin in its life, and will not shoot anywhere close to the RR, never would.

    Not everything has to be LMT, Noveske or HK416's. Not everybody plays tactical operator dress up in their living room.

    So very true, some people came to the 3 gun match with everything but face paint on, it was a joke to look at really-- some beat me some did not, side note a S&W M&P were the only one that had trouble, not sure what kind of problem, I heard that he got the lanyard string from his tactical knife in it somehow, I dont really know. But they did look good!!
    His video glasses were real nice to.

    OP- the rifle you are looking at looks like a fine firearm. If you like the way it comes then snag that thing. That gun for 1,000 dollars seems like a very good deal. It will last you quite a while. Dont let these guys talk you into needing a 649 dollar surefire light mount vert grip for it.
