About the Ruger AR-556 Rifle 5.56 NATO Black 16.1" ~
The Ruger AR-556 Rifle is a single-stage trigger firearm that provides durable and reliable fire control. The enlarged trigger guard is designed to allow gloved shooting in cold weather. Six-position, telescoping, M4-style buttstock and Mil-Spec buffer tube allow the rifle to be properly sized for different shooters or varying levels of outerwear. 11" aluminum handguard is free-floated for accuracy and features Magpul M-LOK accessory attachment slots along the 3:00, 6:00 and 9:00 positions with additional slots on the angled faces near the muzzle. The inside diameter of the carrier and gas key are chrome plated and the key is staked for longevity.

I purchased this armalite rifle a couple weeks ago and can honestly say it hooked me into the hobby hard. I changed out some furniture and it is now a perfect first AR. I will build my next one but this is a great introductory gun that is both user friendly and great fun.
