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.

I own several other AR variants and have made a few of my own. I am familiar with this weapons platform. I also want to say that I’ve owned several Ruger pistols and a rifle in the past, and overall, am not a fan. With that being said, when I was shopping for an AR, I came across several manufacturers and after reviewing a lot of reviews on these manufacturers, the one name stands out, Ruger. The others had a mix of good and bad reviews but the Ruger reviews were mostly positive. Ruger in and of itself is a quality manufacturer of firearms, and, their customer service is second to none. My reasoning for purchasing an AR made by Ruger even though I don’t necessarily like their own designs is because, in this case, they are building a firearm based on an already established design. I wasn’t disappointed. Overall the platform cycled reliably with zero problems running standard Remington ammo. Once I dialed in the red dot to cowitness with the front sight, anything within 100 yards was a very easy off hand shot. Overall I like the short barrel, though it is a bit noisy. With that being said, I probably wouldn’t go below 10.5” as ballistics is already hampered with the shorter barrel. Any shorter and you might as well go with a pistol caliber. Overall 5 star in quality and function.

Let me say that I love this firearm...after I sent it back to Ruger. When I first received it, it wouldn't go completely into battery, after a few tries It wouldn't allow me to use the charging handle at all. Ruger took it back and fixed the problem within a week (faulty charging handle). Since then it has functioned amazingly with no further hiccups. I've put about 200 rounds through it using Pmags, Lancer mags, Hexmag, and GI style magazines with varying ammo and it has performed great! It was very accurate and soft shooting. I have it set up with Mbus flip up sights, a ROMEO5 red dot from Sig, and a Streamlight TL1 HL long gun light for a home defense option if needed, though it will likely just be a fun plinker for range trips.Extremely happy with my purchase overall and despite the initial issue, would definitely recommend the AR556 pistol.

This Ruger 556 10.5” pistol is awesome! I am very happy with it. I have not had one problem with it yet. It actually has less recoil than my other AR’s. Very smooth shooting. The only thing i did not like about it is that it comes to you saturated in oil. Like as if someone dunked it in a barrel of oil then wrapped it up. Other than that its nice. Slap an eotech on it and your in business!

My Ruger 10.5" AR pistol just arrived. Fast shipping from Buds & the gun & box it came in were both pristine upon initial visual inspection. Makes me proud to be an American owning this. Thanks Buds for being so awesome! :)

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 .

    Robert, Yes.The top rail is a standard pic rail. Magpul mbus sights will drop right on. Ruger has a pretty good set of back up sights that are very similar. Most back up sight sets will drop right on this rail.

    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

    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.

    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.
