    Latest RA order, parts update, observations

    Got my latest order from RA today. Had a couple of Ls, one M and some parts.

    I'm really digging the new "competition" length uppers. I've got T-rex length arms so I'm not really reaching past where I could with the "standard" upper, but the look is nice.

    The M with Keymod upper is night and day different from the quad rail. Much more svelte. This one is an 18" heavy barrel. It comes in at 8lb 9oz with sights, FAST and no mag.

    SN on the Ls was the upper 10k, almost 11k. That's not much off from my last order that I got several months back. The M is low 5k on the SN.

    I got a few common parts kits as well. The buffers are all the "new" style. The extractor spring is now a bright orange material. Looks like there's an updated firing pin too. I'll be emailing Alex to see if the new one is compatible with the old.

    These latest rifles are looking really nice. Fit and finish seems to be the best so far.

    Pics to follow.

    Are the sights from Robinson, too?

    Is the long rail on a .223?

    Look forward to the pics.

    There won't be any of those until they change the gas block. The only gas block they've got that will fit under the rails is the Type 3(300blk style). Those are L only.

    Sights on the rifles are from RA. Was told they were from Samson.

    I've got a 556 and a 762x39 with the long hand guards. Pics when I get home from work tonight.

    Yeah Nate, it would be nice to know if the firing pins are interchangeable with which bolts. Keep us updated.

    That extended upper is pretty sexy looking.....Wonder what the weight difference is between it and the stnd. L KM upper.

    Looks like they're trying to beef the firing pin design. Wonder if the new pin will fit in the old bolt or if it has to be hogged out.

    Maybe I'm just used to the standard length uppers. The rifle with extended upper looks award to me. Like a clumsy kid with really long legs and arms.
