Ruger Introduces AR-556 Autoloading Rifle

Ruger certainly is not new to the AR-15 party, but their new AR-556 is about as down home and affordable as what you will see in competing rifles on the market with an MSRP of $750. The rifle weighs 6.5 pounds with a carbine length direct impingement gas system. It comes complete with an A2 Front Site that has a QD sling socket in base. They also include their own Ruger Rapid Deploy folding rear sight. The 16.1 inch medium contour barrel is cold hammer-forged with a 1 in 8 twist rifling and is chamberd in 5.56 NATO. Other features includes a six-position mil-spec stock, over-sized trigger guard, single stage trigger, flash hider, and pistol grip. The bolt carrier is chrome plated with a black oxide finish. They also throw in a 30 round PMAG. You can vie full specs at
