Greetings all,

Anybody have opinions on either of these uppers...specifically is the RRA worth the extra $ over the Armalite?

$600 for the armalite 20" or $675 for the RRA they seem to be basically the same upper to my untrained eye.

This is pretty sweet too...

Can't comment on those, but my cousin bought the RRA R3 which I think is the same barrel.

Accurate upper.

My buddy has a 20" Predator upper. Can easily shoot 1in @100yrds w/62gr GT. He has a different handguard tho. Not sure about that one but his was heavy as ****. Easy fix tho.

I bought an Armalite target upper a few Christmas sales ago...20"SS barrel, similar to the one in your link but handguard doesn't have the vent slots toward the business end.

It shoots 5-round cloverleaf patterns after a fouling shot or 2. ;)

If I needed a target gun, I'd get another in a second.
