(4 out of 5) Great Gun
by from Bismarck, ND on

This is a great rifle for the money. I paired with a vortex scope and had it dialed in using the 50/200 zero method and it didn’t take long to have very good groups! I purchased before the price increase. SOS shipped within a week which is very good considering they had a potential delay warning for firearms orders. Never had an issue with them for any purchase and highly recommend.

by from Houston, TX on

Great rifle for the price. I purchase this AR on the 13th of April and I figured with everything going on it wouldn't arrive until mid march. I was shocked when it arrived within 14 days. Placed a reflex sight it, took it the range last night and ran 500 rounds through it without any problems.

I havent had a chance to shoot the gun but I am sure I wouldn't have any issue I highly recommend this weather it 550-650 price range worth every single penny and the customer service is great go place your order asap.

(5 out of 5) Everything's perfect!
by from La Vergne, TN on

I ordered this the Saturday before Christmas. Arrived Christmas Eve, 3 days after placing the order. Unfathomable all things considered. Oh and my FFL closed at 3 p.m.

 As for the gun itself, it's perfect. I've wanted a modern sporting rifle awhile now. Arrived well oiled, and chewed through the 120 rds of 55 gr .556 ammo I ran through it with absolutely no problems. Y'all are the best!

(5 out of 5) Excellent fit and finish- great price
by from FOREST, VA on

A typical Ruger product, excellent firearm priced far below comparable arms. A shooter that gobbles up any ammo run thru it. My rifle was shipped quickly at a fair price. Sportsman's Outdoor Superstore is #1 with me.

(5 out of 5) Worth the money!
by from Deatsville, AL on

Well made, accurate, reliable and well priced entry level carbine. All the bells and whistles that I wanted in a backup rifle without the huge price tag. Going behind the seat in my Jeep for light ranch work. I couldn't be more pleased.

(5 out of 5) Much more rifle than I expected for the price!
by from Roanoke, VA on

First, let me say I'm not a gun snob. But I do tend to purchase as close to top of the line models as I can, taking into account great deals. I initially bought this little rifle to be left to my grandson, who just turned 1. In 17 years, he might appreciate this old timey rifle.
 Out of the box I was fairly impressed...an AR platform with the Ruger name, USA made for under $470. After closer inspection, this rifle started impressing me more and more. The fit and quality was way above a sub $470 firearm. So I decided to run a few rounds thru it. After slapping on a Nikon 3x9 and a quick bore sighing, I was easily shooting .75 MOA groups of 3 rounds at 100 yards. It does string slightly high and left as the barrel heats up. So I let it cool down and slowly ran some Hornady .223 Superformance Match 75g BTHP rounds thru it. 3 of the 5 shot group were touching. A true MOA rifle. Impressive! Tomorrow I'm going to put a better scope on it and using the same ammo, I'm gonna leg it out to 300 - 500 yards. We'll see how well it does since the weather conditions should be perfect.
 All in all, for a budget Ruger AR this thing is amazing. If you're looking to get into the AR platform, or just wanting another one for whatever reason you can never have enough firearms, this rifle is a steal at $469.99 and free shipping.
