Our Assessment: Ruger is a company that was founded on the idea of providing the average user with quality firearms at fair prices. The SR-556 AR-15 chambered in 6.8 SPC II is a wonderful example of how the company continues to meet that commitment but also go above and beyond.  Everywhere you look at this gun, you see Ruger’s careful design choices which combine to make an excellent range toy or competition rifle. The Piston driven design at the core of this rifle will run cooler, cleaner, and last longer than most ARs on the market with the standard operating system.  Add in the one piece Bolt Carrier, 4 position gas regulator, and Cold Hammer Forged Chrome Lined Barrel and you are looking at a very high tier AR build made to outperform the others in terms of recoil, accuracy, recoil, and longevity.  This system also perfectly suits the high stopping power caliber of the 6.8mm making it ideal for hunting, tactical shooting, or just becoming a paper badguy’s worst nightmare at the range.   If you are looking for a great addition to your collection or are buying a firearm for the first time, then don’t miss this opportunity. The AR15 is the LEGO of the adult world.  Customize it however you want that fits you and make it your own.   If you are looking to get back into the range with a clean, reliable, and smooth operating rifle then this is your gal.  But you have to bid on it first!
