So Rock River Arms says there is a 60-90 day lead time on their .223s and I have my heart set on their Coyote upper. I need an upper soonish for some predator hunting, so what are some other options you guys suggest? Obviously, I'm looking for a hunting varmint/predator style upper with a 16" barrel and 1/9 twist. Thanks guys.

and budget around $700.

Hell that's not bad I have been waiting 180 days now and still haven't received my complete RRA upper.


You can never have to much horsepower or ammo

I got my RRA upper in... 25 minutes. 2 minutes of looking, 8 minutes of thinking... 15 minutes to pick out accessories, pay, and get out the door. Found it in a shop up here in Roseville. They're out there; call around.

Mine was the Advanced Tactical Hunter. Pretty nice one. Glad I didn't go with something else.

BTW, I think most of theirs are in 1:8.

You could build one for that. I've built several they aren't difficult.

I know Parallax Tactical and Discount Gun in Santee have uppers on the shelf, but I don't know if you'd like them. It's almost like buy what you can now cause it's getting worse out there.

For just a nick over 700 you can get a Dan Carey built upper. Match barrel in any profile and twist. His wait times are closer to 5weeks when I got mine but call to ask.

Ten Percent Firearms in Taft shows the 16" Varmint RRA upper in stock. It has the 1-8 twist which, for me, is the best of both worlds.

Parallax will build it to your spec, though. They always have tons of
stuff.
