    The Ruger SR-556

    Yep, a two stage piston driven AR from Ruger. I bet Old Bill is spinning in his grave. Looks like it might be a performer if anyone's willing to be a test bunny.

    Not bad.
    Not bad at all.

    Maybe the people are Ruger are finally waking up...

    Its a bit pricey for an AR though.
    I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.

    That looks nice. I like the grips added to the rails. I hate the rails on anything to begin with.

    I think Sig Sauer also make a 5.56 that is piston driven.

    That is definitely on the high end for an AR. That is up there in SIG territory. Hopefully Ruger will put our a winner.
    When in doubt empty the magazine.

    It's $2K, but it has about $500 worth of aftermarket parts from the factory and the piston. Plus it looks to have all the marks checked on the M4 List. I'd say for what it is that's a fair price.

    I don't see anything wrong with that. It's out of my price range, but looks like it will be a solid seller, if Ruger can put the on dealer racks.

    Looks like the ONLY Part Ruger made might be the Barrel.

    I for one am happy a typically "fudd" manufacturer is getting into ARs (along with S&W). It's actually pretty well priced for a piston AR (if you think you need that sort of thing) and comes with some really good rails and what are typically after-market add-ons. I like that it comes with 3 30 rnd PMags... Is that Ruger's way of apologizing for years of 10 round mag sales to civies?

    Nice to see it, but I think it's about 12 months behind the 8 ball.

    Do you think it would be worth selling a kidney? They sure are pretty!
    It is surely true that you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink. Nor can you make them grateful for your efforts.
