Colonna, IL– There is no doubt that we are in the “golden age” of semi-automatic rifles with companies like Rock River Arms continuing to offer high-quality rifles designed with premium materials and strict quality control, all sold at reasonable prices. Rock River Arms earned its reputation by manufacturing some of the most accurate and reliable semi-automatic rifles for the law enforcement and civilian markets. Now for 2022, the company ups the game for hunters with the introduction of the All-Terrain Hunter (ATH), a mid-length rifle that stands out in the field of AR platform hunting rifles.
Specifically designed with the modern hunter in mind, the ATH rifle’s 18-inch precision stainless steel barrel is cryogenically treated for maximum stability and accuracy, even under high-volume shooting conditions. Chambered in .223 WYLDE to accommodate 5.56mm and .223 Remington hunting ammunition, the ATH barrel incorporates a 1:8 twist rate and boasts a guaranteed accuracy of 3/4 MOA at 100 yards.
The barrel is mated to a forged A4 upper receiver and is encased by an extended 13-inch free-float lightweight handguard. The full-length rail system with shared tokens offers plenty of room for high-magnification optics and thermal gear for nighttime varmint hunting, while the M-LOK®-compatible handguard ensures ample mounting positions for bipods, slings, and lights.
Hunter ergonomics also get high marks with the RRA ATH. A winter trigger guard provides ample room for the trigger finger, even when wearing thick gloves. The Hogue pistol grip also accommodates gloved hands with its non-slip rubber coating and prominent finger grooves. To meet changing shooting scenarios and clothing requirements, a six-position RRA Operator CAR stock completes the lower receiver assembly. With its generous side weld and textured butt plate, this stock makes it easy to maintain a safe and comfortable visual image in a fast-paced hunting environment. The stock also incorporates multiple quick-detach sling mounting points and a watertight battery storage compartment.
Hunters will appreciate the ATH’s operational controls. The star safety selector, for example, is easy to handle with gloves. Most notable is the inclusion of RRA’s world-class two-stage Varmint Ultra Match trigger. With its light pickup, crisp break and 3.5 – 4 lbs. pull the weight, this trigger goes a long way in minimizing shooter-induced disturbance of the shot, a critical factor in long-range accuracy.
Additional features on the All-Terrain Hunter include the RRA operator’s muzzle brake, owner’s manual, plastic hard case, and a 20-round steel magazine.
Rock River Arms continues to develop, advance and expand the semi-automatic rifle market by manufacturing accurate and reliable products like the new All-Terrain Hunter that sports enthusiasts can trust. Whether for hunting or protection, Rock River Arms is a brand trusted by defense professionals and serious recreational shooters alike.
