Re: Magpul Hunter American stock for the RARR

Apparently mdt has a chassis that will now work with the 300blackout Ruger American, it’s called the LSS-XL GEN 2

Re: Magpul Hunter American stock for the RARR

I am a new poster here and new to 300 Blackout (I have a Ruger Ranch 26968 at the dealer waiting to be picked up and a YHM Resonator with the Form 4 just started a week ago, and a Springfield Armory Saint Pistol in 300 on the waiting list for my dealer.) I'm following this specific to the Magpul St...

Re: Magpul Hunter American stock for the RARR

Well I guess I’ll just have to go with the Boyd’s and a cdi dbm then. I love the magpul on my 700 with the only gripe being that I have to use a flexible cleaning rod bc the cheek weld is to high for a brass one. Other than that it is amazing. Did you ask him about removing material from the trigger...

Re: Magpul Hunter American stock for the RARR

That’s interesting. I wonder what changed his mind. I also had to deal with that dilemma. My 700 is left hand but magpul doesn’t sale left hand stocks so I took a long thin carbide burr and followed the grooves for the bolt and safety and made my stock a left hand. I put it in the mill to finish it ...

Re: Magpul Hunter American stock for the RARR

That sounds like the case here. If one had a mag they didn’t care to trash then I’m sure removing material would solve this issue. I’ve noticed with RARR I just bought that the mag sits a little lower than i would like. EDIT. What about removing material from the posts on the bottom metal that could...

Re: Magpul Hunter American stock for the RARR

I actually spoke with MDT about their chassis and why it wouldn’t work on Tuesday. I was informed that the mag catch is to short and not allowing it to sit high enough so that the bolt could grab the round and push it into the chamber. This could possibly be the same issue. I have considered trying ...

Re: Which RARR?

Well I shortened the feed lips up to about an 1/8” behind the case mouth and that helped tremendously. Although now the 2nd round in the mag will hang instead of the first. I took the mag apart and put two turns in and it fixed that problem but created another. Now the bolt grabs the 3rd round case ...

I was planning on taking a little under 1/4” at a time and trying it.

Re: Which RARR?

Well I went ahead and bought the RARR with the rotary mag today and loaded the mag full with factory Hornady black with 208 amax to see if it would jam the nose to the top of the chamber. Well the first 2 rounds jam up almost every time but the last 3 feed fine. It looks as though the feed lips on t...

Re: Which RARR?

Athough I would like to leave the next purchase alone other than changing the stock and trigger, I’ve been looking at different parts for the model 7 and rarr and it seems like the rarr is lacking in parts but I’ve read in a few places that the Ruger Precision is the same action so could we use part...
