Rock River Arms Model LAR-8 (308 Winchester-7.62X51 NATO)
Solid composite stock. 20" barrel. [A shorter 16 inch barrel will cost you at least 200 fps or about 400 ft/lb of energy (equal to a hardball 45 ACP load)]. Picatiny rail. Muzzle flash suppressor. Sling swivels. Storage compartment in butt.
A bull barrel will increase the weight of the rifle by as much as 3 pounds. Many states have weight limits for rifles that are used in hunting. For instance, Idaho prohibits rifles weighing more than 16 pounds from being used for hunting game animals. When a bare rifle weighs 11 or 12 pounds it is not hard to reach 16 pounds after adding a full clip of 308 ammo, sling, scope, etc.....
Rock River guarantees one inch, one hundred yard groups with factory ammo. See the attached photograph of a 3 shot group fired with an exact duplicate of the rifle offered in this ad using factory Federal Premium 168 grain Sierra Matchking BTHP ammunition. Don't expect this kind of accuracy with a stock adjustable for length or one that folds.
Also take a look at the photo of the swinging target 3/8 inch thick steel plate. The smudges are from 240 grain 44 magnum rounds. The hole is from one round of factory Federal Sierra Matchking BTHP. Are you sure you want a 223/5.56????? Take a look at the photo of the two cartridges. Guns America home page says it all: Bring Enough Gun......
The last 5 photos are of my personal LAR8, which is not the one for sale in this ad. The one for sale is NIB.
Clicking on each photo will enlarge that photo. Clicking again on the enlarged photo will enlarge the section of the photo under the "+" sign for an even closer examination of a specific section of the rifle.
There is always a possibility that gun laws may be changed, making it more difficult to purchase AR type guns before Manufacturers can fill orders. See an attached photo of one Manufactures lead times.
