Ruger AR556 Full Review video
This Ruger AR-556 AR-15 would have been on a non-recommend had I not taken it out again for additional outings…you’re welcome Ruger. It had substantial problems early on and basically turned into a single shot rifle. However with a simple fix it became totally reliable. I give it a pass therefor and soldier on with a GRV on this much requested AR variation.
You see Ruger, as it often does, takes a look around of what is making money and wants a piece of the action. This is good for the consumer. That high value AR-15 “action” for years has been some high value and yet outstanding ARs like the S&W M&P15 Sport (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1YdpE…). That gun set standards of exactly what can be achieved at the $650 price point; it is amazingly accurate and reliable.
The Ruger AR-556 seems to follow suit, the reliability bobble not withstanding. The grey version shown is a distributor exclusive available at the dealer below. The AR-556 has some notable proprietary features I like. Ergos, quality levels, accuracy, BCG, and a lot more are covered in this GRV. I predict the AR556 to be a huge seller for Ruger and that they will come out with several more desirable versions as suggested in the video.

1: I think the Ruger stock grip is better than that one.
2: my upper/lower fitment, and from what I’ve heard most people’s, is pretty tight. Just a slight bit of wobble, which is expected at the price point.
3: I, and again I hear many others say, think for a milspec trigger it’s pretty damn good. No take up and a pretty clean break.
