    I bought my Ruger ar-556 AR15 from impactguns Boise Idaho location. First of all the staff there is outstanding very very helpful,knowledgeable and just flat-out awesome people.!. I've had my Ruger now for about four months and I've put about a thousand rounds through it and mostly cheap ammo! perFecta,American Eagle and Some TulAmmo. Not one malfunction whatsoever! Out of the box awesome weapon! And you can't beat the price. The only thing I'm going to upgrade is going to be the trigger. The trigger is a bit gritty and inconsistent But that is to be Expected with a entry level AR. Other than that I would highly recommend it. Great job Ruger!!

  • SR or AR?

    I was torn between an AR556 or a SR556. Saved money and got the AR556. What a great weapon. When I get my tax return I plan to buy 4 more for everyone in the family. Great gun and priced right. I've run 420 rounds through it with one failure to eject. That's it. Accuracy is very good and I'd rank it almost as good as my SR762. But that isn't fair because I feel the 7.62 to be THE round for an AR. 9 of 10 for me.

  • Exactly the gun I wanted

    After shooting several hundred rounds thought it I couldn't ask for more. Several other people have shot it and are surprised at how well it feels and shoots. I had some problems with factory reloads, after that not one issue. Even steel ammo runs great.

  • Fantastic service and super fast shipping

    I purchased my Ruger 5.56 about 6 months ago and have fired over 700 rounds without a stoppage or malfunction. I would highly recommend this weapon to anyone looking for a dependable and accurate weapon on a budget. I was shooting respectable groupings at 100 yards using the factory sights.

  • Fantastic!!!!!!

    I just purchased mine and have seen ZERO problems with it! Out of the box it was accurate and ready to go! I've fired around 500 rounds of 5.56 through it with no jams or issues. Its every bit as good as my friends' top of the line AR rifles. I Just added a quad-rail and you can no longer tell it is in anyway an entry level rifle. Looks great, and shoots great! AWESOME GUN!!!!

    Was looking for my first AR15 and overwhelmed with all of the choices out there. DPMS, S&W, PSA, ATI, etc. in the entry level price range. Should I spend more?? This question I kept asking myself. Stumbled onto the Ruger AR-556 and was impressed with the features including the forward assist and dust cover for the same money as the M&P Sport. After some consideration I purchased the Ruger. I'm super happy with it! The build quality and performance are superb. It's very accurate and now after nearly 1000 rounds through it (both 5.56 & .223) with no malfunctions or issues whatsoever, I'm still very happy and would recommend this gun to anyone looking for an inexpensive AR and no need to spend more!

  • Great Buy

    Super impressed by the reliability of this weapon. I have built 25+ ARs, some with pistons. Accuracy is not bad either, best group has been .4" w/ 77gr SMKs and .9" with (ZQI/MKE) 62gr FMJs. No malfunctions with 1200 rounds so far.
