Fred Eichler comments, "I am extremely excited to get this new predator gun out in the field. Rock River Arms is known for their high-quality rifles and I'm honored to have been selected to have my own series. After extensive in-the-field development, I am proud to attach my name to such an excellent product. I look forward to spending more time in the field with my Rock River Arms predator rifle."
The Fred Eichler Series rifle was strategically designed to be lightweight for running and gunning. The 16" mid-length stainless steel barrel has been cryogenically treated to increase the shooters accuracy and aids in cleaning the firearm. The RRA free-float handguard has a full length Picatinny top rail and 2.5" rails at 3, 6 and 9 o'clock for lights, lasers and bi-pods. The unique CNC coyote track design adds not only flare but functionality as it helps dissipate heat. The forged A4 upper flattop allows attachments for scopes, night vision and red dot sights. The rifle equipped with a chromed RRA National Match two-stage trigger with a Parkarized non-reflective surface on the trigger shoe. Other great features include winter trigger guard which accommodates winter or tactical gloves and an over molded pistol grip. It also has a low-profile hidden gas block and RRA's custom muzzle break with directional porting which reduces muzzle lift and recoil. The Fred Eichler Series rifle is available in either the RRA Operator Stock or RRA 6-position Operator CAR Stock. The Fred Eichler Predator .223 is available in a two-tone black-tan finish. Each Fred Eichler Predator .223's comes with one-twenty round (10 round where restricted by law) magazine, hard case and owners manual.
