I recently got this Rock River carbine together. It's based on a RRA 16" stainless 1:8" twist upper, with a mid-length gas system and handguards I had a local gunsmith turn down the barrel profile (from about 0.9" under the handguards to around 0.75") to reduce weight. He also bead-blasted the finish.

Rear BUIS is the ARMS #40-A2. Optic is the Aimpoint M2 on a Knights cantilever mount. Trigger group is a JP single-stage 4#. Stock is a Magpul M93A. Lower is a pre-ban Eagle Arms from the late 1980's.

Fantastic rifle!

What kind of sling, if any, do you plan to put on it?

No, it's an old Eagle Arms lower from the 80's. We'll only have to play "musical lowers" for a few more days.

I'll eventually add some sort of 3 point sling. I have a couple from CQBsolutions for other rifles.

Nice lookin' rifle! Just a good, basic carbine.

I love the balance of the midlength over the CAR/M4 with a 16" barrel. It's nice to have that longer handguard and gas tube as well.

I want one that is very similar to yours.

I want an Ace skeleton stock and I can't deside on a fixed front sight or a folder. I will probably go with a fixed front sight and a flattop for now.

If you go folder, you have two choices: mount folder on barrel (e.g. PRI), or mount the folder on the tube (e.g. Troy). If you go with the tube-mount choice, you can use a rifle-length tube on a 16" for more sight radius and more protection against burns.

See this thread over on AR15.com for info on those:
