Was on the fence due to non- threaded barrel...too late now.
Makes it more accurate. Plus you can also have moderately skilled machinist with a lathe put a threading on your barrel after the fact if you really want the "coolness" factor of a flash hider.
Its really not bad price right now for a Ruger 556 however I got an Adams Arms piston upper for $600+tax right after Sandy Hook and the lower was built for about $300 with a decent grip and stock. If this 556 comes with an upgraded trigger then its really not too bad a deal even outside of the ban frenzy pricing. If not then its only a decent price in these times because as piston uppers become cheaper (such as Adams Arms, Huldra, Stag etc) the 556 becomes less and less of an appealing option at its higher price point.
