This is my first ever AR-15 and I absolutely love this rifle. If you plan on putting a duel point sling on this, you'll have to buy an extra attachment for the front (under the front sight). I also put a butt-pad / recoil pad on mine after my shoulder became sore after shooting it. Recoil on this gun is next to nothing and it shoots very smooth and extremely accurate. I've fed it brass and steel case ammo and only ran into one jam. The jam, I believe, was probably caused by user error when putting the ammo into the magazine. I've never had a jam since then. This is my first Ruger and this gun made me fall in love with them. I highly recommend it!
I own this model and the Ruger MPR (multiple purpose rifle) bought are great guns, however, for the extra $100 you spend to get the MPR is WAY WORTH IT. Compare bought rifles and just for the upgraded Ruger 452 trigger in the MPR is over $100 on top of all the other upgrades on the MPR. If you buy this and add the upgrades of the Ruger MPR to this gun it will cost over $500. Like I had stated this is a great AR with all of my upgrades, however if I had known about the MPR I would not have ordered this, its crazy of how much up an UPGRADE you get with the Ruger MPR!!
i bought mine for fathers day back in June. i have taken it out shooting since then here in Utah. Absolute flawless weapon system, excellent quality, well built and easy to handle-shoot-clean. No issues with any malfunctions and a very accurate weapon system.
love this Ruger flat top 5.56 m4 AR works real good and don't cost that much and it well made,
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!!
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.
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.
