Ruger SR-556 Rifle unboxing
So Dro and I headed to go ol’ Adventure Outdoors to finally pickup the Ruger SR-556 AR15 tactical carbine. This is a fantastic AR M4 style rifle and full of goodies for the value. Some of the deciding points was the matte chrome finish on the bolt group, transfer rod and piston. It makes it super easy to clean almost as nice as a nickel boron. It has a proprietary rail system which is pretty slick, but can be a bit of a pain in the ass if you want to change that out later. It will most likely require a custom jig to remove it.
The pistol Hogue molded over grip is incredibly comfortable. Though I opt personally for a Magpul MOE grip myself, for a grip that comes on an AR out of the box, it is fantastic. The rifle was also accompanied with a CAA six position butt stock iron flip up back up sights and three, yes three Magpul Pmags. It was all wrapped up in a nice canvas carrying case with padded inserts.
