Illinois-based Rock River Arms has unleashed the RRAGE, a new carbine hyped as having a monolithic-style upper/handguard design at a competitive price point.

Chambered in 5.56mm NATO, the Rock River Arms RRAGE sports a 6061T aluminum upper with the clean lines and defined angles one would typically associate with more pricey billet uppers. Paired up with that upper is a 6061T aluminum free-float handguard. The blending of the two results in a “unitized profile and balanced strength and rigidity across the optics platform,” RRA says. The handguard is CAR-length, and it’s topped with a MIL STD 1913 rail. In addition, the handguard is M-LOK-compatible, with attachment points at the 3, 6 and 9 o’clock positions.

Other features of the Rock River Arms RRAGE include a lightweight, 16-inch, chrome moly barrel with a 1:9 and an A2 flash suppressor; carbine-length gas system with a low-profile gas block; single-stage trigger; A2 grip; 30-round capacity; and a RRA six-position tactical carbine buttstock. Additionally, this carbine weighs 5.7 pounds and measures 36 inches in OAL with the stock extended.

We mentioned the price up top. MSRP on the Rock River Arms RRAGE carbine is set at just $759.99, making this a very affordable option.
