I purchased my gun with ease and received my gun in a timely manner. But after the gun was fired about 40 times it malfunctioned and needs to be looked at. The receiver seems to be stuck in place.

This is very good value for the price. It shoots accurately & performs perfectly. LIghtweight & easy to carry walking through heavy, thick brush hunting wild hogs.

This rifle has to be the best entry level rifle out there. It has plenty of minor upgrades and as usual Ruger builds it like a tank. Great quality It\\\'s accurate out of the box and Buds pricing is the best.

Not impressed. Sent it back, Because of failure to feed. Got it back 3 weeks later. Still jamming. Buds was good though.

    David, yes Sir. The muzzle is Muzzle Threaded 1/2-28 TPI and easily removed/replaced. You and yours stay safe!

    Waynn, Sure you can. This is fairly accurate ammo. Once you get this very accurate sporting rifle zeroed you will see slight variations in point of impact with other ammunition.

    the gun is not MD compliant due to the 30 round magazine legally the way to buy a firearm for a person in another state is to have them open a Buds account then you purchase buds gift cards and give them the cards so they can buy the firearm. lately we have been told that Buds will ship a firearm with NO MAG if that is the only reason a gun is non compliant you will need to contact customer service (859) 368-0371 available 9AM to 9PM CST Monday through Friday or use the blue chat now button . we are not buds employees we are volunteers that answer questions

    Steven, yes Sir. The barrel is stamped 5.56NATO so it will fire both 5.56 and the lower pressure .223 ammunition no issue.

    L D, The AR-556 has a gas-impingement system, just like the original AR-15 rifle design and the Ruger’s SR series – use a gas piston and op-rod to unlock the bolt after firing. The SR is also much lighter making for quicker handling. Review details of the differences here : https://www.thetruthaboutguns.com/gun-review-ruger-ar-556/

    Leigh, Federal law should overrule State law but the Government allows States to make many State specific laws. And Cali and a few other States are taking full advantage. Details under Rifles here : https://www.budsgunshop.com/feeds/state_reg/california_restrictions.pdf

    Ruger runs a proprietary bolt carrier (not full auto) and does not sell them to consumers so there is no liability due to head space problems from what I've been told. You can replace it with a full auto bolt group though. Any will fit.
