Ruger sr-556 – wikipedia electricity storage handbook

The rifle featured a "two stage" piston mechanism as opposed to the standard direct impingement system of the AR-15. Gas flow is controlled by a four position regulator. Several key parts, such as the short stroke gas piston, gas regulator, and bolt/carrier group are chrome plated. The bolt carrier features an integral lug in place of the AR-15’s gas key. The flash hider is similar to Ruger’s AC-556 and Mini-14GB. [3]

The rifle includes a number of other manufacturer’s parts such as a Troy Industries railed handguard and Samson folding iron sights, a Hogue rubberized pistol grip, and three Magpul PMAG 30-round magazines. The SR-556SC comes with three 10-round magazines and does not have the flash hider or collapsible stock, making it compliant in several states with restrictive rifle laws. The barrel is 409 millimetres (16.12 in), chrome lined, and features a six groove, right hand, 1:230 millimetres (9 in) twist. [2]In August 2010, Ruger announced that the rifle would be offered in the 6.8mm Remington SPC cartridge. [4]

Ruger’s introduction of the SR-556 was met with some criticism for its high price tag of around U.S. $2,000. Ruger products are usually known for affordability, but the SR-556 is essentially a regular AR-15 albeit with a different, more complicated operating system, unlike cheaper alternatives, like the Smith & Wesson M&P rifles, which lacked a forward assist or dust cover. The SR-556 was also criticized for its heavier weight than other AR-15s. Ruger addressed these shortcomings by introducing a lighter and less expensive rifle, the SR-556E. [5] Ruger AR-556 [ edit ]
