  • Rock River LE1040

    In January, I bought a RRA LE1040 (16" barrel / mid-length / adjustable stock) from the local police supply store. I was kind of disappointed when I took the handguards off and found out it had a heavy barrel. It does in fact have a chrome lined barrel so I didn’t complain (plus being that there is no returns on firearms at the store).

    A co-worker of mine just bought the same gun (LE1040), from the same store, and his has a chrome-lined lightweight barrel.

    I feel like I got screwed. Does anybody know the actual RRA specs for the LE line of rifles or do they just throw together whatever is lying around and sell it to us?

    Thanks

    Try sending them an e-mail. I had the LE Catalog in PDF but cannot find it.

      TRy the store first and ask them about it....THEN try the Rock River people...maybe the store did something funky..

        Rock River has order options for the heavy or lightweight profile barrels, chrome lined or non chrome lined. If you order the rifle via the dealer, they should be ordered to your specifications. Your dealer should cover all of the different features / options available and allow you to chose each option. If it was an off the shelf purchase, it would not be uncommon for a dealer to stock rifles built with different specs. The dealer should list the full features of the rifle, and in no way is this any fault of Rock River.

          Yeah, I go over this very issue with RRA in my "AR" thread. It's one of the drawbacks to Rock Rivers. I wish they came standard with chrome-lining and proper gov't profile barrels, but they don't.

            Just to cover the bases: what markings does one look for to check chrome lining, the CL stamp yes?

              AH...Yea it's my fault. That is kind of what I figured. Oh well a heavy barrel is not the end of the world.

              As for the barrel codes, I found this on another forum:

              Old Codes:
              3 characters, side by side, over the chamber.
              1st character: N or W... N = Nato chamber, W = Wylde chamber.
              2nd character: 8 or 9... 8 = 1:8 twist, 9 = 1:9 twist.
              3rd character: A,S, or C... A= chrome moly, S= stainless, C= chrome lined.

              New Codes:
              Unless indicated otherwise, all stainless barrels are 1:8 twist and all Moly barrels ( chrome lined or not ) are 1:9. All 16" moly barrels have a NATO chamber, while the 20" moly and all Stainless barrels have a Wylde chamber.

              200 = moly CAR
              200CL = chrome lined CAR
              202 = moly R4
              204 = chrome lined R4
              206 = stainless CAR
              208 = 16" varmint
              210 = moly Mid
              212 = chrome lined Mid
              215 = stainless Mid
              218 = 18" varmint
              220 = moly Std (rifle)
              222 = stainless NM (rifle)
              223 = stainless NM (rifle), unthreaded
              226 = 20" varmint
              228 = 24" varmint (1:8)
              229 = 24" varmint (1:12)

              The codes are on the barrel under the handguards.

                You can also look into the chamber and the barrels bore. You see a very distinct hard chrome (silver) lining.
