great brand for a fair price, I could easily see these kind of firearms become banned via a liberal congress- vote R people.

compact,.made by a company that's been in business for many years. And accepts many aftermarket add on's, also the price was right.

All the ruger firearms I own are excellent, I have no reason to believe this one will be of any less than a quality firearm.
Terry K on Aug 30, 2019
Great price for a beautiful piece of machinery.
Cody C on Aug 27, 2019
Great reviews plus I own and have owned many Rugers over the past 24 years of shooting that have all been overly reliable. Ruger has a great reputation and I've always relied on them for quality and great customer service.

Good weapon...and good price
Daniel D on Aug 15, 2019
I was considering an AR pistol for sometime but was cautious about buying an unproven brand. I've been watching these since they debuted earlier this year and have been waiting for a decent price.
Jared A on Aug 14, 2019
built like a tank.
STEPHEN W on Aug 14, 2019

This will be an excellent, handy coyote gun, and the caliber is widely distributed.

I think liberal politicians are going to make "pistol braces" their next "bump stocks."
MATTHEW H on Aug 11, 2019
Trust Ruger quality and reliability, and it's inconvenient to build my own ar pistol.

John V on Aug 9, 2019
I have been looking at the AR platform for some time and finally found a good base model that I can build on. I know Ruger makes quality, affordable firearms and will take care of you if any issues arrive as they have excellent customer service.

Good price for compact AR style weapon. Should be fun to shoot.
BRENT W on Aug 8, 2019
mags fit with my AR 556 AR 15 rifle, and Ruger makes great guns, so it fits with the family of them that I own already.
Jim H on Aug 8, 2019
Because it is a Ruger.
Henry G on Aug 7, 2019

Seth S on Aug 5, 2019
I have been searching for an AR 5.56/.223 pistol that is form a quality manufacturer that has a CFH barrel and an SBA3 brace
Brett L on Aug 4, 2019
Ruger is a name brand at a good price which I am relying on since this<br />firearm has not been on the market very long - - like Trump always says:<br />"we'll see what happens".
GLENN S on Aug 4, 2019
1.) Purchased for Self defense.<br />2.) Good price point vs. Springfield's offering, though I would have preferred a 7-inch barrel for concealment. There is not a lot of overall decrease in length of Ruger's AR-556 Pistol vs. a full-size AR, but the advantage is the classification as a pistol. <br />3.) I have had good experience with Ruger products and trust I will be getting a quality firearm at this price. Watch the reviews in the future. I will let you know if this is worth it.
Greg W. on Aug 4, 2019
Recommendation on youtube. Great manufacturer. Good warranty. I've ALWAYS had good luck ordering thru GrabAGun.
Fatpony on Aug 3, 2019

What is OAL minus accessories (muzzle brake, pistol brace)? I’m looking to buy one in Michigan
Al on Aug 6, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Overall Length
Will this accept standard green follower Colt magazines?
Michael on May 18, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes, this firearm is compatible with standard AR-15/M16/M4 magazines including those made by Colt.
How is the trigger?
John on Jul 31, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The trigger is the stock Ruger trigger they put in all Ruger ARs. Very long pull and gritty. Ruger sells an enhanced Elite trigger with a dry fire jig that makes a good replacement.
How much does this weigh?
Robert on Jul 31, 2019
BEST ANSWER: This model weighs 6.2lbs according to Ruger.

Good value for the money
MFG wise its very well made. Tight tolerances flawless finish, really great chamber, better than a lot of other ARs I've seen. Not wild about the arms of the brace, but they are what they are. The brace extends back to what you would expect from a full size AR stock to extend, but being a pistol, it is a brace. At 10.5" is not a fireball thrower like my 7" version of a different maker. It has a Signtmark sight on it now, I seem fairly happy about it. Buy one, you will like it.

Great Gun
For the money it is a great quality gun from a reputable manufacturer and exactly what you'd expect. The trigger leaves a lot to be desired and is the only reason for 4 stars instead of 5.

Awesome - What else can I say!
I have wanted one for a long time. I have a full size AR, but this intrigued me. It is simply Awesome. What else is there to say.

A quality AR-15 pistol for not so much $
I've pieced together AR pistols spending more $ and not got the total quality that is provided by this Ruger. This one worked straight out of the box, all I added was a $50 red-dot. It has the Ruger name, and in my experience, they stand behind their products. All this and a great bargain from GrabAGun.

AR-556 Pistol Features

Lower receiver is fitted with an adjustable SB Tactical SBA3 Pistol Stabilizing Brace to aid in accuracy, balance and recoil management.
Handguard is free-floating for accuracy and the slim, 9" length provides enhanced ergonomics and support. Magpul M-LOK accessory attachment slots along the 3:00, 6:00 and 9:00 positions.
Made from aerospace-grade 7075-T6 aluminum forging, the flattop upper receiver includes a forward assist, dust cover and brass deflector.
Bolt is machined from 9310 alloy steel and is shot peened and pressure (proof) tested to ensure strength, structural integrity and durability.
Carbine-length gas system ensures reliable function with a wide variety of ammunition.
Cold hammer-forged 4140 chrome-moly steel barrel with ultra-precise rifling 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.
Bolt carrier and gas key have chrome-plated inside diameters to provide exceptional resistance to hot gases. The gas key is staked so that it will not loosen after extensive firing. A matte black oxide finish on the exterior of the bolt carrier provides corrosion resistance.
A Ruger flash suppressor is provided, and the 1/2"-28 threaded barrel allows for standard muzzle accessories to be installed.
