Black Rain Questions

Recommended Posts

I'm working on the purchase of a 308 and doing some reasearch. I've been looking at Colt, Ruger, and Black Rain and I've become pretty interested in the Black Rain. I've got my eyes on a 308 in a 20 inch stainless barrel model. But I've not been able to find any place where people have aired their thoughts, complaints, praises....etc about the Black Rain 308s. I've seen a few at some shops I visit, but never spoken with someone that has/had one.

 

Thoughts?

Hey Moon. I haven't built it yet (it's on the list). But I've got a matched BRO upper/lower set that I've got zero complaints about. Fit and finish is second to none. Machining is top notch.

 

And I'm the Armalite guy no less. <laughs>

I'm not so sure if we can invoke "The Rule" on someones very first post...

 

I mean, as a newb, and assuming they did NO reasearch, that's one thing.

 

However, just posting up about something on the very NUMBAH WON, we might have to give some slack.

 

Look at Adam, too - fresh noob bustin' chops around here...  <lmao>

Thanks Guys... I appreciate the info... and the amnesty from the obvious breach of protocol... <thumbsup> 

I will say that the gun is ordered and I will be more and happy to post my thoughts. I've only been looking at this for about the last 8 months. 

My standards are pretty damn high...My expectations are following closely.

  You technically don't Qualify for the Rule , because you said you were going to buy one , your word is good enough for me .

 

   It doesn't get you out a Review ( with copious amours of photo's ) & range report though !  <thumbsup>

it is funny, broke as I am there have been things I've seen I wanted to point out to the rest of you, but I can't afford to have the rule invoked :D

 

Hell, you can make "product announcements" my brother. 

 

It's all in how you phrase it. 

 

"Hey, have any of you guys tried...?...  "

 

You're buying it.

 

"Here's a new product from xxaabb company, and the product details are...  whatever."

 

Be careful in how you do this information push, or information request.  It's the information request that bites you in the a$s...  <lmao>

 

You wanna find out about it, and nobody has it, AND there are no reviews up?  You just bought it.  :banana:

 

We laugh, and wait on your shipping, and you pay.  <dontknow> <laughs>
