Rock River Arms Now Shipping LAR-22 Rifles

Colona, IL (September 2019) – Rock River Arms, manufacture of a diverse line of reliable and accurate Modern Sporting Rifles and pistols for personal defense, hunting, and competition is now shipping the new LAR-22 series rifles. The LAR-22 series are chambered in .22LR, giving shooters a higher-volume, reduced recoil and lower-price alternative to more expensive 5.56/.223 ammunition for practice and general recreation shooting.

Three variants of the LAR-22 rifles are currently shipping—the Tactical Carbine, Mid A4, and the NM A4 CMP Trainer.

Tactical Carbine – For those who favor an MSR with a free-float barrel and handguard configuration, the LAR-22 Tactical Carbine is an optimal choice for tactical training or target plinking. Select between a forged aluminum upper and lower receiver set or RRA’s own polymer lower receiver set for a lower-cost option. Both rifles feature the RRA NSP-2 CAR, six-position stock, A2 pistol grip, two-stage trigger, and 15-inch 3G free float rail handguard that is M-LOK® compatible shrouding a 16-inch chrome moly barrel.

Mid A4 – Designed for those who prefer a more traditional A4-style firearm, the Mid A4 LAR-22 is also offered with either forged aluminum upper and lower receivers or the RRA polymer upper and lower receivers. Standard A2 grips, mid-length handguard with heat shields, six-position tactical CAR stock, single-stage trigger, and a 16-inch chrome moly barrel round out the key features.

NM A4 CMP Trainer – Built to be a stand-in practice rifle for CMP National Match competition, this rifle combines a precision 20-inch stainless steel heavy barrel with RRA’s NM CMP TRO free-float rifle-length handguard (with three TRO modular rails and a National Match sling swivel). Another precision upgrade is the RRA Two-Stage Match chrome trigger group. Available with forged aluminum upper and lower receivers, the NM A4 CMP Trainer includes the familiar A2 pistol grip and RRA Operator CAR six-position stock.

In addition to using .22LR ammunition to reduce the cost of practice sessions and provide more recreational shooting, the new LAR-22 rifles are also priced to make these easy additions to shooters’ portfolios or as “on-ramp” models for new or youth shooters.

    RRA isn’t shipping anything. I ordered my CMP .22lr Upper back in July of 2019. I just got it now… in MAY 2020. 10 months. And regular calls yielded nothing but lies from the company. Every excuse from waiting on small parts, to waiting on barrels, etc. I was originally told the wait would be about 6 weeks. Well, 6 weeks quickly turned in to over 40 weeks. IF you order anything from them, ask for a guarantee. Call them regularly for updates. And if they don’t give you a good answer for the delay, cancel your order. Don’t keep giving them your business when they couldn’t care less about you. Hey, if it’s going to be another year until you have actually have all the parts you need to build your product, then just tell me, and I’ll take my business elsewhere. But that’s the game, isn’t it? Bait people, and just lead them on indefinitely with lies until you get around to actually fulfilling your part of the financial agreement. Why can’t we hold these companies to their word without resorting to expensive lawsuits?
