$1014 cash price and in stock. Don't know if that's a deal or not. What's the advantage(s) of SR-556 over the AR-556?

Edit: THE AR PLATFORM REDEFINED. The SR-556® offers Ruger's legendary rugged reliability, and comes factory standard with a host of accessories that today's shooters demand. Employing a patent-pending, chrome-plated, two-stage piston driven operating system that provides the user with a cleaner, cooler running, reliable firearm that is truly state-of-the-art.

The chrome-lined gas block and chrome-plated piston and regulator work together to provide a smooth power delivery stroke to the bolt carrier. The by-products of the gas system are vented out the bottom of the gas block, away from the bolt carrier, keeping the action clean and free from contaminants. The end result is significantly improved performance over gas driven rifles.

Good price. I was on the fence between this model and just piecing myself a rifle together with a barreled upper assembly. I chose the latter to customize more right off the bat. TU.

I picked this gun up locally for $580 last month. I've put 100 rounds through it and no problems. Smooth shooting and just a basic AR. Can't ask much more out of a sub $700 AR15.

Get it shipped to a dealer that knows how to make them NJ-legal. Really just involves chopping the bayo lugs, pinning the stock, and changing the flash hider to a compensator then pinning that on.
Also, can't have the 30rd mags.

Otherwise, the rifle itself is fine.

this seems to be the best price now that Gun Buyer is OOS from when they were selling them for $559. I personally have this - excellent AR. sucks that everyone is gouging on 30 round PMAG Gen 3's now. long gone are the $11.99 days

A month ago, just before Christmas I was able to buy around 20-25 gen3's for under $10 a piece shipped from various sellers, now any place that does have a deal going is out of stock. They must be selling a ton of them.

The only time I bought PMAGs Gen 3s they were $99 for 12 at Botach. I haven't seen a deal that good before or after that time. I have seen them sell 10 for $99 regularly but I didn't realize they went up. How much are they going for now?
