The new RRAGE carbine builds on Rock River Arms’ new extruded flat top upper receiver. Made of 6061T aluminum, this receiver exhibits the clean lines and defined angles commonly associated with the more expensive billet uppers while delivering comparable strength and precision dimensions.
Paired with the upper receiver is a similarly constructed 6061T aluminum free-float handguard that blends almost seamlessly with the upper to provide an elegant, unitized profile and balanced strength and rigidity across the optics platform. The car-length handguard boasts a full-length MS1913 top rail and features the popular MLOK rail configuration for easy accessory adaptation. The MLOK system along the side and bottom surfaces lets shooters run a clean handguard or add only the rail accessories needed to help maintain a sleek, snag-free signature.
Stay tuned for more on the RRAGE as we take it out to the range and put it to the test.
