Not yet. Still waiting on RRA. I have checked back with them. They still have my order (and my money). In the mean time I have been playing with my HK91 clones. Shouldn't be long now. I am anxious to get it running again. I think my next one will be a Rock River Arms .308 but not until they get caught up. I don't like loaning them operating expense funds while I wait for the product. Coyotes and Hogs may take over the world before I get my toys.

Back in 08-09 I waited about 6 months for 3 AR15 kits from Delton, so I kinda know how you feel.

Oh well, Its a great rifle and worth the wait. I am sure I will end up with another RRA LAR8 of some config.

Do you ever run the Crappy steel cased polymer coated corrosive stuff through yours? after shooting some cheap crap through my 5.56/.223 and breaking an extractor I won't run any of that russian crap through my weapons.

99% of my shooting is with my reloads. I have some Brown Bear 145gr FMJ that my rifle seems to like OK, but I only use it for fouling shots and heating up my barrel before I shoot for groups with my reloads. Been so hot lately I can't find any enjoyment at my shooting range, so I haven't shot in about a month.

I just got a bushmaster 308 ar and i think it's a bar 10. I called bushmaster and gave them my serial number and they said is was the model that was discontinued back in 05. I wanted to know if rra barrels or upper half could be used to replace mine? I want to upgrade to a 20" rifle and add a quad rail.

Yes-far as I can tell, all RRA LAR8 parts will fit the BAR10. You will need to buy a complete bolt carrier group with the upper.

Thank you! I really want to just switch out my barrel so i can have 20" and add a free float quad rail. Also which barrel do you prefer the stainless steel or the chrome moly? Or what is this difference in the two besides price?

If you put a new barrel on your existing upper be aware that RRA has a unique barrel nut with different threads. Be sure and get a new nut with the barrel, and it takes a different wrench as well. I don't know what the difference is. Also there are not very many handguards that fit RRA, but some companies will provide adapters.
I don't know if stainless barrels are more accurate or what, but they don't require as much maintenance.
Read back through this thread and you'll find a lot of good info scattered throughout. Be aware the early bolts were prone to breakage-if you have to replace it, you will have to buy the entire bolt carrier group.
