Illinois-based Rock River Arms this week announced a new entry to their RRAGE series of modern sporting rifles with their new 3G carbine.
Using RRA’s familiar forged LAR-15 lower with an aluminum A4 upper with no forward assist, the RRAGE rifles use 16-inch 1-in-9-inch twist barrels with a CAR-length gas system, low-profile gas block, and a threaded muzzle with an A2 flash hider. While the standard RRAGE runs a lightweight chrome-moly barrel and a short free-floated aluminum M-LOK compatible handguard, the RRAGE 3G comes standard with a heavy barrel and a longer 15-inch railed handguard that retains the M-LOK compatibility.
Pitched as a great entry-level carbine for 3-Gun competitors and sport shooters alike, RRA says the new 3G “delivers an upper assembly with clean, matching contours that is visually appealing and has a smooth, monolithic-style profile for quick, snag-free sling transitions.”
The carbine’s weight is 6.5-pounds and the 3G comes standard with RRA’s single-stage trigger, six-position tactical stock, and a single 30-round polymer magazine. Overall length is 36-inches, with the stock extended. While the standard RRAGE retails for $760 (we beat that in the Guns.com Vault), the RRAGE 3G is set at $820.
