This is my second RAR in .243Win. I liked the first one so much that I pimped it out with a laminated stock and long range s/s bbl for a bench gun that weighs 14lbs. I hand load 105 grain bullets for distances out to 1000yds and beyond. I like the RAR action - receiver, bolt, and trigger - quite a bit, and wanting to get back to a lighter sporting rifle it was a no-brainer to add another RAR .243Win to the gun safe. This one is used for varmint control with 75 grain bullets.
The RAR is relatively lightweight, with a polymer stock that includes a good butt pad for recoil management, which is fairly light with a .243Win cartridge. The stock has action blocks that mate the action well, and the fore stock clears the bbl and leaves it free floating. The detachable magazine combines steel innards with a polymer outer shell - it works just fine for me, though mostly I single cartridge load into the chamber.
The trigger assembly is adjustable for pull weight and I can get i down to under 3lbs. It's got a crisp break and makes for clean shots if I do my part.
The rifle is sans irons but does include a lengthy scope rail to add your own.
The bbl is sporter sized and it didn't take long to break it in for minimum copper deposits. I've used the original bbl, along with handloads, make some good and consecutive hits on distant steel.
