The Ruger AR-556 Pistol is not your standard AR style pistol, the AR-556 is made with premium accessories to Ruger’s precision standards. This version of the AR-556 Pistol is equipped with the SB Tactical SBA3 Stabilizing Brace. The SBA3 will give you excellent control and maneuverability of the AR-556 with the added ability to adjust the length to fit most shooters. The heart of any rifle is the barrel and the AR-556 features a heavy contour, cold hammer-forged barrel with ultra-precise rifling that provides 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 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. Whether your intention is for plinking and target shooting, or for tactical and home defense, go with a name and brand you trust, choose the Ruger AR-556.
