LaRue AR15 Review
Good choice on the LaRue. You are in for a real treat. The La Rue’s are right up there with the best of them. Shot one a few SHOT Shows ago at the Range Day. I was very impressed. Then again the LWRC REPR was sweet too. Start saving your money for some optics as that rifle can really make use of good glass. Very accurate platform.

Rock River Arms Review Info
The Rock River Arms AR-15 will likely be more inherently accurate considering the Wylde chamber and 18″ stainless barrel. However, are you willing to invest in the match ammo and quality optics in order to try to squeeze sub-MOA accuracy out of it? If you are going to spend that kind of money on ammo and glass, then I would spend a bit more on the rifle and get a Noveske.


Overall, both LaRue and Rock River Arms offer high-quality AR-15 rifles. LaRue offers more customizable options for the individual shooter, while Rock River Arms offers a more standardized approach with a focus on quality control. Choosing between the two may depend on personal preferences and needs, such as the intended use for the rifle and desired customization options.
