The Ruger AR-556 Pistol features a lower receiver that is fitted with an adjustable pistol stabilizing brace to aid in accuracy, balance and recoil management, the slim 9" handguard is free-floating for accuracy and provides enhanced ergonomics and support. Magpul M-LOK accessory attachment slots along the 3:00, 6:00 and 9:00 positions. Made from aerospace-grade 7075-T6 aluminum forging, the flattop upper receiver includes a forward assist, dust cover and brass deflector. The bolt is machined from 9310 alloy steel and is shot peened and pressure (proof) tested to ensure strength, structural integrity and durability. The twist rate stabilizes bullets from 35 to 77 grains and the 5.56 NATO chamber allows the use of both 5.56 NATO and .223 Rem. ammunition. M4 feed ramps provide improved reliability and the matte black oxide finish reduces glare and provides corrosion resistance. A matte black oxide finish on the exterior of the bolt carrier provides corrosion resistance. A Ruger flash suppressor is provided, and the threaded barrel allows for standard muzzle accessories to be installed. Includes a 30rd Magpul PMAG.

The ruger AR-15 pistol , its built solid and feels right in your hands , I have to agree with some others that the trigger pull is a little on the heavy side , but that’s an easy fix . Dealing with buds gun shop was easy , shipping was fast , and at the time I ordered my ruger pistol the price was the lowest on the internet ! I had ordered the ruger AR-15 rifle about nine months ago and now I have the set .

FIrst AR Pistol purchase, about my 4th from buds, excellent service asusual. This thing came covered in oil, but I guess that\\\'s to be expected. Cleaned it up and took it to the range, very very good gun especially for the price. Had 4 jams out of 100 rounds, changed buffer spring and replaced the buffer with a 4 oz one which resolved that issue. Very happy with my purchase.

This is a very nice pistol and I was happy to find it here for a great price. The gun was in perfect shape and arrived quickly to my FFL holder. I am very happy with my gun and with Bud\\\'s.

My Ruger AR15 Pistol in the 5.56 is great. Just got it home stripped it down gave it a good clean and lube with Ballistol and slaps a red dot on it. And it went out back to shot great. I only put a few mags threw it but it works flawlessly. Im not leaving the red dot on it tho. Im getting and pair of iron sights. Its a bedroom and toss it in the truck gun. It will get a flashlight rail mounted but that will be it as far as electronic devices. I want to keep it small simple and easy. Something my wife or me can grab if theres a problem. And the little Ruger pistol will be perfect for it. And yup id suggest that to a friend for an ideal home defense gun.

Great service quick ship. Gun is remarkable really fun to shoot. Several hundred rounds through with zero jams. Don\\\'t buy unless you have plenty of ammo, you\\\'ll need it

I waited to review this weapon until after I had time to range test it. Let me start by saying that it took seven days to get the weapon. The FFL I used called me the same day UPS delivered the weapon and I picked it up. That was the following Monday. I ordered on a Monday. Now to the rifle. The fit and finish were fair not good and not poor. I had to file off a section of very rough metal on the lower that was missed in quality control. It was an overhang on the top side of the lower and you could actually cut your finger on it when the AR was assembled. This left a small bare aluminum spot but since I expect it to get knocked around, I did not worry to much about it. At the range, the hand guard gets very hot. You will need to use a glove for prolonged shooting or grip it at the mag well. The hand guard is average and nothing special. The SBA brace was very nice. The grip was sort of clunky and rather large. There is no storage inside. I will probably replace it with a Magpul. Accuracy was fine and the weapon ran 200 rounds without an issue. This included slow fire and rapid fire. It is LOUD and I mean much louder than a normal AR. Did I say it was LOUD? I brought it home and broke it down for cleaning and inspection. There was not any abnormal wear all though the bolt carrier sustained most of the observed wear. It is not a \\\\\\\"normal: bolt carrier and the pin that is required to be removed for disassembly is very hard and weird to put back in. You have to reach inside it and pinch the pin to get it to fully insert into the hole. A Ruger trait but not a game-ender however it does not lend itself to a good field cleaning. I did notice the buffer tube locking nut was very loose and the brace was wobbling. Thank goodness I did not lose the spring under it. I did put some lock tight on it and tightened it down. This came loose during the session as I checked it over before going and it was tight. I will check it after the next range trip. It is not staked in any way. You should use lock tight to lock it down before shooting it. Now after saying all this, I would be pissed it I purchased it at the high end of the pricing instead of the low end like I did. With a name like Ruger, you would expect more quality control. I have several Ruger pistols and their fit and finish are excellent. From what I have seen of their AR line (this being my only sample), they are comparable to the DPMS line but at a higher price. Would I buy this again?....maybe.....maybe not. COME ON RUGER you can and should do much better.

    Matthew, yes it is a Handgun/Pistol. Due to the greater than 15rd magazine capacity, it is not Vermont legal. Details under Handguns here : https://www.budsgunshop.com/feeds/state_reg/vermont_restrictions.pdf

    Mark, no Sir. It has too many IL restricted features (Muzzle brake / muzzle compensator & Capacity to accept a detachable magazine outside the pistol grip) as listed under Handguns here : https://www.budsgunshop.com/catalog/feeds/state_reg/illinois_restrictions.pdf

    no it does not require a tax stamp as it is classified as a pistol with a arm brace adding vertical grip or a full stock would make it a SBR (short barrel rifle) and would then require the tax stamp

    Jack, there are no limits although it may alert the ATF depending on how many firearms purchased at one or a short amount of time.
    • Answered
    Kevin, yes Sir. The ATF has stated that an Angled fore grip is different than a vertical fore grip. ---- http://blog.roninsgrips.com/atf-letter-stating-magpul-afg-legal-use-ar-pistols/

    Stephen, yes Sir. The Brace can be folded via addition of the adapter and the classification of Pistol/Handgun does not change.

    Robert, Way too many MD prohibited features to ship to MD. Here are the list of CA and MA approved firearms at BUDs.

    Benjamin, with the adjustable Brace it would technically not be legal. It would have to be fixed below 26 inches. I would also as a local FFL their opinion for interpretation on legality as well.
