    Rock river have a nice set up have a look on trademe at mo there is a L4 Varmint for about $2800
    Rock River Arms LAR-15 Varmint A4 AR-15 Rifle.
    Flat top upper.
    .223/5.56 calibre.
    20", Air Gauged stainless steel Bull barrel, 1:8 match grade stainless.
    RRA 2 stage trigger with winter trigger guard.
    RRA Advanced free float handguard.
    Supplied in A cat configuration, with A2 stock.
    Weight 9.4 lbs
    5 round magazine.

    The Varmint A4 is factory customised for enhanced accuracy. The 20" bull barrel is air gauged, and combined with free float handguard, increases accuracy and stability by reducing barrel harmonics.
    The 2 stage trigger gets the most out of every shot with it's crisp break. The A2 stock and textured aluminium handguard provide a comfortable grip for prone or off hand shooting.

    This is a very accurate rifle, factory guaranteed to shoot 3/4 MOA out of the box.

    My advise is to shoot someone elses 20" Var barrel AR a bit before buying one.
    Chances are you'll be looking for a different barrel pretty soon after..

    I had one, If I could afford a gunbearer I would still have it but decided best I could do was sent the barrel off to "jenny craig"

    I would check that . Last I heard the shipment that just came in was the last until the news laws are all sorted .
    We got short changed on our order and only had 3 spares after the preorders were taken care of and those 3 went quickly .

    By the looks pistol grip rule will go back to how it was and may include thumbholes being classed as E-Cat. No one knows for sure yet. But if you have an AR I would be planning on getting the endorsement.
