Great buying experience I saw the same gun at coastal for almost 200 dollars cheaper. Great prices I would definitely recommend buds to other people I will be returning for future purchases.

The ruger ar556 is a gas impingement rifle. Gas impingement differs from prison driven models in two ways: piston driven models are almost twice the price , and 2) you simply gotta clean your gas impingement model more often than a piston drive model because of the gunpowder residue that gets passed down the the tube to the bolt area of your rifle. So, if you are rich, then get a piston driven model like sr556. Otherwise, get the ar556 and keep your budget in balance as well, but just learn how to clean your action ( I don’t mind cleaning it). This gun is ruger quality: the barrel is nice and thick which you will notice when you unscrew the ruger delta ring that retains the handgrips. The front sight is machined from metal and is part of the gas block and I think that it gives the rifle a very high quality feel. The pistol grip is really nice custom ruger model and just fits and feels very good quality. There is a pop up rear sight just in case your scope gets knocked off ( again super nice quality feel to the gun). It uses mag pull magazines ( comes with a thirty round mag) and these really are very nice magazines which add to the quality and serviceability of this gun. I found that the buttstock felt just a little too short for me ( I am a large frame guy). So I added a limb saver rubber cushion ( you can get these anywhere for like $10 the kind that people use on shotguns all of the time ). It added just one inch of length to the gun which seems to work ok for me. You break down the rifle by pressing out the rear pin with your fingers and then pivot on the front pin for cleaning ( just slide the bolt out the rear and clean it up easy peezy) . I love the simplicity of the hammer mechanism which is exposed when you break open the gun as described above. The simplicity of operation and ease of cleaning disassembly and reassembly make this gun an instant favorite for me. It really gives you the feeling that you got your money’s worth at the $480 price range. I feel like I got MORE than my money’s worth with this purchase. The only downside to purchasing this ar is how much money you are gonna blow on ammunition down at the range because it is so very pleasurable to own and fun to shoot. Two thumbs up in this purchase from buds!

Solid entry-level AR. I have not had a problem with it thus far, and it's a very clean looking rifle. As suggested by others, DO NOT modify the rifle. This one is designed to function box-ready.

Lovely rifle. Brand new, in the box, as advertised. Shipped quickly. I am highly pleased. I have not shot it yet, but I have no doubt it will be a fine shooter.Thanks, Bud's!

    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.

    Ross, No,--------https://www.criminaldefenselawyer.com › resources › what-legal-way-brin... New California Law As of January 1, 2015, a law in California supplants the federal law. It, too, prohibits California residents from buying guns out of state and simply driving home with them (or shipping them home).
