Gotta love AR panic...

Have a guy on ARFCOM that wants to trade straight up his SA SOCOM 16 for my 4 year old RRA Entry Tactical. I do love the RRA and it has always done well by me, but she is getting up there in age/round count (not in terms of usable life, but in terms of how long I like to keep pieces). So weigh in with your thoughts or comments.


Paladin, you said you were unimpressed with the SOCOM, is that correct?


Thanks all.

I did not shoot it but it did not feel well made. Too much plastic IMO. The rails were not placed conducive to my hold.

To trade for your m4 I would do.

Keep the AR... if things continue the way they are, it'll be worth more in 6 months.

Don't scare me like that...it's guys like you driving the panic!

Kinda makes me wanna pick up a few lowers though. I have a feeling once the initial panic subsides, lots of build-er-up-yerself parts will be available.
