Ruger AR-556 On Sale

Bourbon City Firearms is selling a Ruger AR-556 for $589.99!

Look at these reviews:

When Ruger decided to get into the AR market with their SR-556 they used a two-stage piston design. The SR-556 is reliable and accurate but it’s also expensive. The new AR-556 is a direct gas impingement AR. A gas gun is lighter and less costly to produce than a piston gun and when done correctly is every bit as reliable. The AR-556 is made in Ruger’s new factory in Mayodan, North Carolina, is 100% American made and produced almost entirely from parts made by Ruger. These parts include the upper and lower receivers and the 1:8 twist barrel with a chamber optimized to run both 5.56 NATO and .223 Remington ammunition. Ruger chose not to chrome line the barrel (something only military full-auto weapons in sustained firing benefit from) but chrome plated the bearing surface of the gas key and the inside of the bolt carrier where the bolt resides.

All of the AR-556’s controls are of the typical AR configuration and can be found in their usual locations, including the charging handle, safety selector, magazine release and trigger. Although some budget-conscious carbines have been relieved of their forward assists and dust covers, they are both present on the right side of this model. The buffer tube has mil-spec dimensions and is fitted with a basic six-position shoulder stock that has a checkered butt plate and a sling mount.

During initial testing, the Ruger AR-556 repeatedly hit a 6-inch steel plate offhand at 100 yards with standard factory sights.
