Good price for a decent shooter but not without a hiccup. Before I used it I had to ship it back to Ruger because dust cover wouldn\'t stay close. Holes which hold pin for the dust cover were drilled to low and ball detent would not engage the groove in the upper receiver. Ruger replaced all upper assembly and I had my rifle back in few days, now all functions great. Very accurate no issues, shoots great.

This is my 1st AR won’t be my last. Took it out this past weekend put around 300 to 400 rounds through it no problems, no jams had a great time. I’ve always had handguns and a few shotguns but I absolutely love this gun. Already modifying it a little so much to learn and so versatile. I feel like this is a great price and a great quality product especially for a beginner on a budget. This isn’t my first Ruger brand gun and won’t be my last I feel it’s really worth the price so far.

This is my first AR and I am relatively new to the platform. Haven’t gotten to spend a lot of time with it and have only shot around 150 rounds so far. No jams or issues yet and I don’t intend to have any. Great rifle from a reputable brand for a beginner. Definitely happy with the rifle overall.

Purchased the Ruger AR-556 .223 with free float hand guard. Shipping was extremely fast. Especially with everything going on last month & today. So I was definitely pleased. The firearm is well made & the trigger isn’t bad at all for A out of the box gun. Very pleased with the price as I saw the same gun online yesterday for 100 bucks more than I paid, highly recommend budsgunshop. I’ll definitely be a return customer.

    Yes sir this rifle has 5R rifling It features five-groove (5R) rifling, which is generally thought to provide increased accuracy over older rifling types. The barrel is cold-hammer-forged 4140 chrome-moly steel with a nitride finish for corrosion resistance. For the first six inches or so it has a heavy profile, then it narrows. The 1st AR I bought was the Ruger 556 MPR and I absolutely love it is durable l, reliable and fun to shoot. I highly recomend this rifle for home deffense or just having fun on the range

    Cody, no Sir because of the 30rd Magazine. Some members have reported that some Buds Customer Service Reps have offered to remove/replace magazines if capacity is the ONLY State restriction. I would ask directly at 1-859-368-0371 9am-9pm EST Mon-Fri. or use the Blue Chat now button at the bottom right corner 9am to 9pm Mon-Sat and 11am - 7pm Sun (7 days a week).

    Christopher, No, for shipping to MD firearm can not be altered in any way from as it ships from manufacturer.------------We will not modify a firearm from its manufactured packaging in order to make it compliant with your state laws. We will also not ship firearms to a third party to be modified or changed in any way from manufactured specifications. The firearm you purchase must be compliant AS IS from the manufacturer before we will ship. Some states BUDs could pull the standard capacity magazine and ship with no magazine, but not MD.

    I use Troy fixed sights for my AR's. A little expensive but the best. Bud's doesn't carry the fixed just the folding ones but they are top notch too. https://www.budsgunshop.com/product_info.php/products_id/711011046/hk+front+and+rear+folding+micro+battlesights+flat+dark+earth
