1121XR Precision Rifle

(6.5 Creedmoor)

  • 6.5 Creedmoor
  • 1:8 twist
  • Guaranteed Sub-1 MOA
  • Lifetime Warranty


RISE Armament designed its 1121XR in 6.5 Creedmoor for those who want more out of a heavy caliber gas rifle. With the 1121XR, big-game hunters can have accurate knock-down power at long distances without having the extra weight that normally comes with such a platform. Competitors and long-range shooters can have the accuracy of a bolt-action gun with the benefit of quick follow-up shots due to minimal recoil and muzzle bounce.

The rifle comes with a number of incredible features, including our popular RA-535 Advanced-Performance Trigger. The RISE RA-535 is one of the best trigger options you’ll find on the market. Meanwhile, the rifle comes with our premium bolt carrier group with an easy-to-clean black nitride finish. The rifle also features the stainless steel RISE Armament RA-701 Compensator. Check out more features below. For those interested, the 1121XR is also available in .308.

The 1121XR Precision Rifle features an upgraded buffer system called a JP Silent Captured Spring System. With this system, it is not recommended to use a buffer retention pin. Please note that your 1121XR does not include or have a buffer retention pin installed. Since there is no buffer retention pin, be aware that the JP Silent Captured Spring is loose in the lower receiver. When removing the lower from the box, please make sure the buffer tube stays horizontal or the buffer system can easily slide out, causing damage to the system. If you have any further questions, please reach out to our customer service team at help@risearmament.com or call 918-994-7058.

One Fine Rifle

While it took 6-9 months to get my rifles I have to say it was worth the wait. In my opinion, this is the finest 6.5 creedmoor AR10 style rifle on the market for the price and possibly regardless of price. I liked my FDE 1121 so much after taking it to the range that I ordered another in green. I would say it is better that my SCAR 20s in 6.5. Unbelievably accurate with the stainless steel barrel, a trigger that is sweet, and a tight upper to lower lock up. I have many nice AR15s from manufacturers such as KAC, LMT, BGD, ADM, LWRC, HK, and LaRue. The 1121 is as well made as the best of them.



Ammended review from 8/18/2022

Reported that periodic Jams were because of a “too small after market” Brass catcher opening at the discharge port that I attached to the 1121 XR. Went with a LARGER brass catcher and the problem seems to be resolved. Only one small EJECTION jam after a 40 round target shoot. Other issue (minor) still exists and am currently pursuing with Rise Armament. Best semi auto I have ever owned !! Hornady 140 gr. BTHP HAND LOADS = 3/8″ to 1/2″, five consecutive shot groups at 100 yds. Working towards 1000 + yard challenge one day. 140 gr. Hornady ELD MATCH ammo not as good so far.

1121 XR 6.5 Creedmoor

Excellent platform rifle. Mag Pul components. Sub MOA groups with hand loads so far. Comfortable re coil. Ejected cartridges will slightly dent at the top of the case neck.

No problem when neck sizing for hand loading. Sometimes ejection jams. Maybe from plastic clip ?? A steel one is available from after market, not purchased yet. Load five rounds ONLY to reduce jams. Worth every “penny” of the expense. Very friendly and caring company personal !

Unmatched Accuracy

I have the 6.5 custom cerakote matched with a Thermal that I use for coyote hunting. I honestly don’t see how it can get any better!
