Product Description

The Ruger AR-556 semi-automatic, M4-style, direct impingement Modern Sporting Rifle offers consumers an affordable, American-made Modern Sporting Rifle with the rugged reliability they have come to expect from Ruger. Extensively tested during its development, the AR-556 is constructed from top-quality components, including forged 7075-T6 aluminum upper and lower receivers and a cold hammer-forged chrome-moly steel barrel with M4 feed ramp cuts.

Chambered in 5.56 NATO, the AR-556’s carbine-length, flat-top, M4 design is fully configured with a Ruger Rapid Deploy folding rear sight, milled F-height gas block with post front sight, forward assist, dust cover, brass deflector, telescoping six-position stock, improved trigger-reach grip, enlarged trigger guard and one 30-round Magpul PMag. Standardized M4/AR components are utilized throughout, so the AR-556 can be customized easily.

AR-556 Features

Windage Adjustable Ruger Rapid Deploy Rear Sight: The Ruger Rapid Deploy folding rear sight provides windage adjustability, and is a solid, reliable aiming system when coupled with the elevation adjustable front sight. The rear sight can be folded out of the way to make room for optics but can be instantly redeployed if needed.
Forged 7075-T6 Aluminum Upper Receiver: Made from aerospace-grade 7075-T6 aluminum forging, the flattop upper receiver includes a forward assist, dust cover and brass deflector, and is Type III hard coat anodized for maximum durability.
Shot Peened, 9310 Alloy Steel Bolt: The bolt is machined from 9310 alloy steel and is shot peened and pressure (proof) tested to ensure strength, structural integrity and durability.
Patent Pending Barrel Nut and Delta Ring: The patent pending Barrel Nut and Delta Ring are designed for one person handguard removal and installation. The design accepts standard carbine length handguards. The barrel nut uses a standard wrench and can be swapped with a Mil-Spec barrel nut if desired.
Elevation Adjustable Front Sight: The front sight post is elevation adjustable, and a front sight tool is included. The A-2 Style F-Height allows co-witness with many optics.
Medium Contour Cold Hammer-Forged Barrel: The 16.10 inch medium contour barrel is cold hammer-forged providing ultra-precise rifling for exceptional accuracy, longevity and easy cleaning. The 1:8 twist rate stabilizes bullets from 35 to 77 grains, and the 5.56 NATO chamber allows the use of both 5.56 NATO and .223 Rem. ammunition. M4 feed ramps provide improved operational reliability, and the matte black oxide finish reduces glare and provides corrosion resistance. A Ruger flash suppressor is provided, and the 1/2-28 threaded barrel allows for standard muzzle accessories to be installed.
Single Stage Trigger and Enlarged Trigger Guard: The single stage trigger provides durable and reliable fire control. The enlarged trigger guard is designed to allow for gloved shooting.
Matte Black Oxide Bolt Carrier with Staked Gas Key: The chrome-plated bolt carrier inside diameter and chrome-plated gas key inside diameter provide exceptional resistance to hot gases. The gas key is staked so that it will not loosen after extensive firing. A matte black oxide finish on the exterior of the bolt carrier provides corrosion resistance.
Serrated Face Milled Gas Block: The milled gas block is located at a carbine length (M4) position for improved balance and handling. Multiple attachment points include a QD socket and bayonet lug, for many sling and accessory mounting options. Serrations on the angled face of the gas block provide a low-glare surface.

(5 out of 5) Great Gun, Great Price, Great Service
by from Macomb, Michigan on

I ordered this gun for 499.99 which is the best price I've seen for this gun in about 3 months of keeping my eye on it. I ordered it with 2 day shipping and it arrived in time. I had a problem with the payment due to the bank thinking it was fraudulent activity and when I needed to call and take care of it I had quick and friendly service over the phone. I will be buying from this site more in the future.

(5 out of 5) TOTALLY SATSFIED
by from Yakima, Washington on

I was kind of hesitant on purchasing a gun online but decided to go for it. It was quick and simple, even though I didn't get it walk out immediately like you do from the store. It didn't take long at all to get it. Will definitely order through this place again.

(5 out of 5) Ruger AR 556
by from Port St. Lucie, FL on

This rifle has to be one of the best choices that I have made.. It is really good looking and it fires like a champ.. I've taken it to the range a few times and I just can't put it down.. I love my new Ruger..

(5 out of 5) Best deal on the market
by from Miami, FL on

Bottom line: Great, affordable product that ships new, in the box and performs.

(5 out of 5) Ruger 223 / 5.56
by from Foley, Alabama on

Excellent firearm for sport or hunting, and the price is right.

(5 out of 5) Excellent
by from Miami, Florida on

I was looking at a few different ARs and did a lot of research before my purchase. After I saw this deal I decided to pull the trigger, literally, and get it. I am very very happy that I did. The rifle is extremely well made and so far I have had 0 issues with it after 1000 rounds. I have shot rifles twice the price and the Ruger is the same, if not better. There is no question the Ruger is better than the S&W M&P15, and I own both. I would HIGHLY recommend this rifle to anyone at any level.

(5 out of 5) Ruger AR 556
by from Dixfiels, Maine on

Awesome buying experience. Definitely will buy here again. Got my rifle 2 days after it was shipped. The rifle is just as advertised. I love it. Great shooter out of the box.

(5 out of 5) My first AR
by from Raytown, MO on

This was my first purchase from SOSS and also my first AR. The purchase was easy, my order shipped on time, and I had it from my FFL within a week. The Ruger AR556 is my first AR, so I don't have a comparison. I have fired a few rounds through it and, so far, I really like it. It seems to be made well and is very tight and solid.

(5 out of 5) Excellent Buying Experience
by from Yakima, Washington on

this is the first time for me buying a gun online. Heard about this place from my son in law, checked it out and decided to give it a try...100% satisfied. It arrived on schedule to the place I had it shipped to. I went there to get it registered and boom.... done deal! Will definitely buy more through this place...

(5 out of 5) Ruger AR 556
by from Leoma, Tennessee on

This is the third gun I have purchased from SOSS; this is by far my favorite! I absolutely love it!

(3 out of 5) Ruger AR15
by from Salina, Kansas on

Initial impression of the Ruger is that it's nicely finished. The takedown pins are really tight, my Rock River and Olympic Arms were not this stiff. The trigger is heavy and gritty compared to the previous ARs. PMAGS go in and out just fine, but metal mags require a good whack on the bottom to get them to lock, the metal mags easily installed on the Olympic Arms ARs just fine in comparison. Will take it out soon and see if running a few hundred rounds will straighten out some of these issues.

(5 out of 5) Reliable, honest and helpful customer service
by from El Paso, Texas on

Let me tell you about the customer service of the SOSS. 100% hands down customer service. I emailed them to change my order and the same day my order was changed, and I didn't even have to call them. I will definitely order more of their product in the future. I was promised that my order will be ship tomorrow, and I checked the status of my order today and guess what, my order has been shipped today. I will make another review as soon as I receive my Ruger AR 5.56. I can't wait for it; I'm excited. Thank you SOSS!

(5 out of 5) Very good AR15
by from Jackson, CA on

I've put about 800 rounds through this gun since I've owned it, and not one single malfunction or anything. Great gun, and Sportsmans Outdoor Superstore has great prices, fast shipping. Highly recommend!

(5 out of 5) Great price!
by from Clarkston, MI on

Shipping took a little longer then expected but its the holidays. Arrived at my ffl in great shape. Great prices at Sportsmans Outdoor Superstore. Will be shopping here more often.

(5 out of 5) Great buy
by from Kansas City, MO on

I got this one on sale and couldn't be happier. Shoots great. So far, I can say it's accurate up to 100 yards. Can't beat this deal.

(5 out of 5) AR-556
by from lockney, Texas on

This is my first AR and my second gun to buy from SOSS. With that, I am pretty happy. On this AR, they were $75 cheaper than next cheapest, including the $20 fee for shipping to FFL dealer. I've fired about 20 rounds through this gun so far, and it's flawless. Safe to say I'll do business with SOSS again!

(5 out of 5) Nice Purchase
by from Las Vegas, Nv on

I had been looking for a Ruger AR-556 for sometime. Bought it here at a great price, saved $200 over local dealers. Product arrived as scheduled to a FFL dealer near me. Will be making more purchases here!

(5 out of 5) AR-556 Purchase
by from Ft. Lauderdale, FL on

I was looking at the Ruger AR-556 the Friday before the election. Price was $519. WOW! Unfortunately I was dumb and waited until the Monday before the election to order, and the price was $675. Still a good deal. Had it in my hands in 2 days! What service! Rifle was flawless and tight. Shot 4 groups at 50 yds out of the box w/iron sights. Thanks for a great deal and ultra fast shipping SOSS Direct! Already purchased another CCW from SOSS at a great price...

by from Collierville, Tennessee on

The rifle performed great and I will buy again from Sportsman's.

(5 out of 5) My First
by from Osteen, FL on

I actually purchased this gun in 2015, but just started shooting with it and I LOVE it! It feels so solid even though it's very lightweight. It's just a lot of fun to shoot with. I love how the Ruger fits, I don't feel like I am going to lose my grip or control while shooting. I am not a gun enthusiast, and don't know much about them, but I know what I like and this gun, I like. I can't think of anything about my AR that I would change. I broke it down using YouTube as my teacher and cleaned it, and put it back together with no problems. It really is a low maintenance gun.

(5 out of 5) Best AR style carbine for the money.
by from San Antonio, Texas on

I have always wanted an AR type rifle but couldn't fade the high cost of most. And with Sooooo many variables very confusing, it was very difficult to know if I would get the best bang for my buck.... But, when Ruger came out with the AR556 at an affordable price, there was no doubt I had found a winner... With Ruger's reputation for great firearms with incredible customer service and all the features that came standard on the carbine, it was a no-brainer... With almost 1000 rounds downrange, I could not be happier with my purchase.... GET ONE, YOU'LL LOVE IT.....

(4 out of 5) Rugar AR 556 Nato Model 8500
by from Marshfield, MA on

Very pleased with the accuracy of the iron sights and the all aluminum upper and lower units. The barrel is the best with its thickness / bull barrel and the 1:8 twist. The only problems that I've had are with the firing pin and bolt carrier. After 200 rounds of 223 and 556 the firing pin shows significant wear and the bolt carrier was not staked sufficiently. Ruger sent out a new firing pin and bolt carrier that was staked better/no play, but the firing pin is showing significant wear when it hits the cotter pin after only 200 rounds of 223. They are working to correct the firing pin problem. I've had this gun for two months and will probably buy a 3rd party nickel barium firing pin.

(5 out of 5) Update on my purchase.
by from Mohave Valley, AZ. on

Since my initial review, Id like to give an update. I only shoot Federal .223 FMJ 55 gr., and .American Eagle 556 FMJ 55 gr. Over 1500 rds. and not 1 malfunction. I have upgraded the trigger with Ruger Elite 452. Highly recommend the upgrade. What a difference, its 2 clicks away from a hair trigger, and it improved my grouping of shots. Installed a Hogue finger grooved pistol grip, a Magpul carbine handguard, and a bi-pod pistol grip. These items are not terribly expensive, and it really improves the rifle experience. I love really shooting this rifle. Thank you again S.O.S. you are in my favorites.

(5 out of 5) My Favorite website to buy Firearms
by from Ukiah, California on

This is my favorite entry level Ar-15 on the market!.. Couldn't be happier with my purchase, I wish SOSS would carry more guns that way I could do all my firearm business with them!

(2 out of 5) Not so good
by from Slidell, LA on

Bought this AR556 because I was well pleased with mini14 I purchased. The AR556 is junk. All and I mean all the pins that hold one thing or another in place fell out at some point within the first month I owned it. Gas block pins fell out. Trigger guard pins fell out. Bolt catch/release pin fell out.

(5 out of 5) Shipping took too long
by from morristown, TN on

The gun is great but they take too long to ship items and once you get a tracking # it still does not ship till at least 2 more days. I would not buy from them if i need something fast.

(5 out of 5) I have a new Best Friend.
by from Mohave Valley, AZ. on

Awesome right out of the box! I am a gun guy, but nowhere near expert or gear-head. I must say, this rifle made me feel like one. Out of the box, windage was right on. Only minor adjustments for elevation were made. This was done @ 50 yards. Once the rifle was dialed in, I mounted the Vortex Strike-Fire II red dot. Got that dialed in and moved to 100 yards. I didn't have to change a thing! The 3 shot groups were exceptional. Shot about 100 rds Federal 223 Rem. 55 gr, FMJ and not a glitch. On my last 3 shot group, there was a metal 10 gong @ 200 yards. I hit 1 out of 3 not touching the sights. I was, and am EXTREMELY happy with this rifle. Ruger, thank you for the firearm. Sportsmans Outdoor Superstore, thank you for the price.

(5 out of 5) Awesome Service
by from OFallon, Missouri on

Great customer service from the start. Just received gun about a week ago and have about 200 rounds through it so far. Gun ran flawlessly, no issues. Great prices will use sportsmans outdoor superstore again.

(5 out of 5) 200 yards no problem!
by from Pottstown, PA on

Right out of the box this is a great rifle, took it to our club , 200 yds. uphill with just the iron sights, hit the 14 x 10 metal plate that sits on top of the hill on the range!!

(5 out of 5) Great Rifle!
by from Ingleside, Illinois on

My first AR, couldn't be more pleased. Only about 100 rounds through it but nary a hiccup. I carefully compared the S&W M&P Sport and this gun and I'm glad I chose the Ruger - and couldn't beat the price anywhere else by a longshot! Highly recommended!

(5 out of 5) My first AR
by from Alexandria, VA on

This is my first AR15. I never really thought I would buy one because I have always liked the traditional style guns, wood stock and steel. However when I saw this Rugar being offered at such a great price, I couldn't pass it up. So far I have only put about 30 223 rounds through it with no issues. I want to try out some 5.56 NATO next. You can't beat the price for such a well made gun, although SOSS has risen the price since I bought mine. I still think it is a good value.

This gun shoots very accurately with hardly any kick. It had a little trouble consistently firing .223, but shoots 5.56 ammo flawlessly. Solid, built AR for the price!

(5 out of 5) Excellent Service
by from Collierville, Tennessee on

I received the order in 3 days. The Ruger 556 was new in the box. The rifle is accurate and easy to shoot. I will use Sportsman again.

(5 out of 5) Wow!!
by from Fairview, TN on

First time AR user.....Great price best I could find....in my hands in 3 days too !! Great job SOS!!!!!

Then the Ruger AR 556. Great first gun for even experienced AR users. I love it, small, lightweight, easy to use. Recommend SOS and Ruger 100%

(5 out of 5) Best Bang For The Buck AR
by from Austin, MN on

Ruger really did it right with this one. A quality, solid rifle that hits the mark, 500 rds so far with no issues. Sights are good and I like the delta ring also. I put a Bushnell red dot on top to sweeten it up. It rocks! Sportsmans Outdoor Superstore had it to me in 3 days. Just get one!

(4 out of 5) Just as described
by from Forsyth, Georgia on

Solid unit. Great price, magpul CTR stock and hand grip swap. Perfect set up without breaking the bank. Can't go wrong with this Ruger Ar15 all of the features of the 1000.00+ rigs. Best price online after long term search. Shipping took a while but it was worth it. Will be buying from SOSS again.

(5 out of 5) Best out of the box AR for the money!
by from Bryan, TX on

Had everything I needed straight out of the box to shoot. Ruger makes a great AR rifle. Can't beat this price. Sportsmansoutdoorsuperstore.com has the best prices, great customer service, and the best shipping rates and options on firearms. My AR came exactly as described new in box and got to my FFL dealer in a hurry. I will definitely buy from them again!

(5 out of 5) Perfect
by from Sterling Heights, Michigan on

Such an amazing gun. Took it to the range and it was very accurate and just overall an amazing gun. Price was great. Well worth it!

(5 out of 5) Great Product and Price!
by from Jacksonville, Florida on

Shot 300 rounds through this rifle today of cheap Russian 223 without issue. Really has everything you can ask for and a super price from Sportsmans. Strongly recommend, great U.S. made rifle and super customer service throughout order.

What more can you ask for

(5 out of 5) Just doesn't get any better
by from Conway, South Carolina on

Amazing weapon. More amazing price and the customer service is second to none. I will not do business with anyone else online from here on out. Thank you so much

(5 out of 5) Best Entry Lever AR-15
by from Salt Lake City, Utah on

After lots of research I was about to buy a S&W M&P Sport but then I found this AR made by Ruger. The barrel is cold forged which was a big plus for me. Also the barrel has a 1 in 8 twist that gives you better accuracy at longer distances. Ruger didn't go cheap and remove the dust cover or forward assist. I've put 100 rounds down range so far and the iron sights are spot on. You couldn't ask for a better rifle at this price. Get one while they are still in stock. This was my first time buying from Sportmansoutdoorsuperstore.com and it will not be the last. They have great customer service and were very prompt in answering my questions. A+++++

by from Austin, Texas on

Solid little 6.5 lb pound sporting rifle. Fun to shoot. No malfunctions out of the box. It's just so darn handy and portable.

(5 out of 5) Ruger AR556
by from Kansas City, Kansas on

I have never bought a weapon site unseen and I have certainly never ordered one off of the internet. I must say that I was a bit anxious. I had read someones negative review about Sportsmans Outdoor Superstore about when their gun was delivered it turned out to be used. Now I kind of doubt that it was true though becuase I received my rifle new in the box today and I am excited. I would definetly recommend SOS for your purchase. There is a very good chance that I will use them again as they gave me a great deal on price and the little interaction that I had with their customer service was exceptional.

Great price on an American-made not just assembled in America rifle. Shipped quickly and arrived on time via two-day FedEx ground. I can't speak to the performance of the gun since I haven't shot it yet, but it's VERY tightly machined and arrived quite oily. Not a complaint, as this prevents corrosion in storage, but some cleaning is in order before the first range trip. I'd rather get a rifle that starts with tight tolerances and loosens with use than one that starts loose. Happy to support Ruger, Sportsmans Outdoor Superstore, and most importantly, our Second Amendment.
