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.
