Great first AR at a great Price
First of all I would like to say what great customer service this company has. I have purchased two firearms from this company and both times have been fantastic.
So far I have put close to 700 rounds of Federal 5.56 Nato XM193 and have had no issues with the rifle. everything on this rifle is Mil Spec so upgrade parts are very easy to get, and install. The sights are good. The flip up rear sight is a peep hole stile, and is of top quality. My favorite thing about the Ruger AR-556 is the Delta Ring. It is a threaded design. So removing the front hand guard is a breeze.
The threaded delta ring design makes installing after market hand guards like the Magpul MOE carbine length hand gaurd a breeze.
If I was in the market for my first AR-15 or another factory built AR-15 I would definitely purchase the Ruger 8500 AR-556 from IReallyLikeguns.com again.
