Definitely worth it at this price
from Augusta, GA
This shop has the lowest price for this rifle that I’ve seen - other “major” retailers wouldn’t even come close when asked to price match. For this price sub $600 this rifle is hard to beat. The shop sent it out about 3 days after ordering and it took about 5-6 days until it landed at my FFL. My FFL couldn’t believe the deal I got and happened to have a Daniel Defense model in a similar size they just bought used and were asking 2x the price than this one new. Holding both together the DD had a better coating but that’s about it. Rifle is slim and light for its length. The only thing I would point out to people is that it has a nice 18” barrel. So the thing “feels” a bit long compared to a 16” or 14.5” pinned and welded. Especially if you add on a longer muzzle device. I like it but I’m not sure that the extra 2” really pays off in terms of velocity. If they had this in 16” it would be a six star gun. Very smooth recoil with the longer gas system. Like any AR it’s loud as heck and the barrel quickly gets hot. But this gun is hard to beat. And the seller gave good service. Gun was perfect on delivery.

Ruger LCP II
from Parker, CO
Placed order during the tail end of Cyber Monday sale on 11/27/2018, received 12/06/18 10 calendar days. I would have received sooner had it not been for the difficulty communicating my local FFL dealer after I had placed the order. They hold for 7 days while you decide where to ship. On my order form, they asked for my name, a shipping address, phone number, etc., not realizing they were asking for the shipping address of the FFL dealer, not mine. I notified them of my choice of FFL the day after placing the order with my order number and FFL info via the Leave Us A Message link on their web page, since I couldn't find where to add that info on their page another way. I wasn't too confident about this process, so filled out the form on the Contact Us link on the second day after placing my order with all the pertinent info. No response. I called and left a verbal message with my order number and phone on the third day. No response. Fourth day, I called just after they opened and talked with an employee responsible for transfers. I let her know that I had provided FFL info and wondered about the status. She could locate my order using my name but did not have any of the info I provided about the FFL in the other 3 ways. I gave my FFL info to her verbally at that time, and my order was processed quickly with an emailed receipt, followed by a preparing for shipment the next day. A bit clumsy on both ends but we got it done.

 Received Ruger LCP II pistol in its cardboard box, no hard or soft case, a cable with lock and keys, red chamber flag, one magazine with extended pinky base plate already attached along with one flat base plate not attached, instruction manual, pocket holster that fits the pistol pretty tightly but doesn't really stick to the inside of a pocket, and several advertisements. Overall quite pleased and will not hesitate to purchase from them again.

Best value out there
from Atlanta, GA
Already an MOA rifle. Rotary mag is the weak point of the system, but now available in a configuration that takes AI-style mags. Also, now available, is an aftermarket stock from Magpul and a Timney trigger, if you really want to squeeze additional accuracy out of the CHF barrel. Factory trigger, however, is fine and very similar to the Savage accu-trigger. Factory stock is very light, but not great. Can be glass-bedded if you want to stiffen it up a bit.

Initial Problem But......
Larry from Orlando, FL
December 4, 2018
My MPR was purchased in November 2017 and had some initial issues. The gun had to be returned to Ruger and they were wonderful in correcting the bolt problem. I have since run close to 3500 rounds with maybe one or two hiccups of no consequence. The MPR shoots so sweet and accurately that several of my friends who have shot it now are ordering for themselves. As mentioned, I had an initial problem that Ruger took care of immediately and perfectly. The Ruger customer service is outstanding if needed. Sure can't say that about many of the manufacturers.

Great Rifle for the money exceeds expectations.

I searched and searched for a perfect rifle to suit an entry level AR15. This exceeded my expectations and went beyond. Very smooth shooter, light and accurate. Ruger really took their time with this one. I’m so happy with it, I’m thinking of getting the .450 bushmaster version. Would highly recommend to anyone contemplating on getting this rifle. All of the bad reviews and videos on Facebook, those issues have been resolved and shouldn’t be looked down upon, this is a great buy. Great job Ruger, another well American made rifle.

Great entry level AR!
Al from Hollywood, FL

While I did not buy my Ruger 556 from SOSS, I can attest that it is an excellent entry level MSR built in Mayodan, North Carolina, USA ???? that will not disappoint. There is very little that you will find needs to be done to this rifle, and one can keep it literally stock and be very content on a fine purchase. Lastly, while I purchase mine at a gun show and as such got a real decent deal... it is tough to beat some of the deals that SOSS offers when it comes to the Ruger 556 such as this current one at $509... So, if you are seriously in the market for a Ruger 556 as opposed to the M&P Sport, go ahead and pull the trigger as you will not regret it...

This little Ruger is a delight to shoot. It is easy to clean and maintain. I love the threaded barrel and look forward to our REAL president lifting the ban on suppressors.

Great gun
Hunter from Moorcroft, WY
November 28, 2018
Didn’t buy mine from SOSS, but the prices are hard to beat and this is a good gun. To Shawn who says the “bullets scratch the gun”.....what do you mean? Do you mean the shells make contact with the rifle when they leave the ejection port? If that’s the case, 90% of any AR15 out there will do that. Leaves little brass markings on the side of the ejection port as the shells clear the rifle. To fix that, you need to adjust your gas block to eject the shells further back at a 3 o’clock position vs a 1 or 2 o’clock
