It had substantial problems early on and basically turned into a single shot rifle.
However with a simple fix it became totally reliable.
I give it a pass therefor and soldier on with a GRV on this much requested AR variation.
nnYou see Ruger, as it often does, takes a look around of what is making money and wants a piece of the action.
This is good for the consumer.
That high value AR-15 "action" for years has been some high value and yet outstanding ARs like the S&W M&P15 Sport (www.youtube.com/watch?v=1YdpE6Lpw9E).
That gun set standards of exactly what can be achieved at the $650 price point; it is amazingly accurate and reliable.nnThe Ruger AR-556 seems to follow suit, the reliability bobble not withstanding.
The grey version shown is a distributor exclusive available at the dealer below.
The AR-556 has some notable proprietary features I like.
Ergos, quality levels, accuracy, BCG, and a lot more are covered in this GRV.
I predict the AR556 to be a huge seller for Ruger and that they will come out with several more desirable versions as suggested in the video.nnUpdate 1/17: Users are reporting failures of the AR-556 aluminum gas block, loosening and material failures.nnNutnfancy Likability Scale: 2.5 of 5nnGunnies Western Wear in Orem UT loaned the clothes and other items for this review, look them up!nnCasio Dive Watch, only $70!
