If you read the product details. Review articles written and read reviews. This Ruger is a good bang for the Bucks. Ruger has made a competitive priced package with the MPR. Solid rifle by a good company, USA made.

Edgar M M on Mar 24, 2019
Great deal, quality brand, great base waepon to start building on
Lars V on Mar 20, 2019
Initially, I wanted the Ruger AR-556. For $100 more, I saw the MPR version -- which has a 2" longer barrel, longer gas system, a free floating hand guard with M-Lok, much better trigger, Magpul furniture, and a flat top upper receiver. It doesn't come with sights, but that's a good thing to me. I don't like how tall & large regular sites are. If you bother to look @ any one of these options to switch on the original AR-556 , you'd see that the $100 upgrade price is well worth it for all of them!
Scotty B on Mar 20, 2019
Do not want to do a lot of customizing and it has everything i want
Michael R on Mar 20, 2019

Ruger is a good name in firearms, the reviews were good, price was low and the longer 18" and magpul.
Anthony A on Mar 19, 2019
It's almost exactly what I would build if I were to buy one component at a time for a lot less money. And you can't go wrong with a Ruger!!

Gustave L on Apr 11, 2019
Is this a good and powerful enough rifle to use for hogs and deers hunting in public lands? Thanks
Thawng on Dec 31, 2018
BEST ANSWER: In my state we can’t hunt deer with this rifle but my sons both took hogs in Texas with them. We’ve killed numerous coyotes with them. I’m fully confident if your state will allow you to hunt deer with one of these rifles with a good soft point and good shot placement you won’t have any trouble taking a deer out to about 300 yards.
Does this work with the magpul mbus sights?
Georgio on Dec 10, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Should work just fine... has normal picitinny rail. If you want it to cowittness with a red dot just get the right height riser. I used a scope on mine and got the riser high enough to clear the flattened sights....
Does this Ruger MPR 556 rifle come with a case or bag?
David on Feb 27, 2019
BEST ANSWER: At the time I purchased mine it came boxed without a case. Great gun and shoots very good.

Great value
I was initially interested in the AR-556, but I wanted all of the upgrades that the AR-556 MPR comes with. It seems that any one of these upgrades can justify the approximate $100 increase (upgraded trigger system, magpul furniture, floating rail/handgaurd, & 18" barrel. This makes the Ruger AR-556 MPR very competitively priced & a high value.

RUGER AR-556 1st T time out at the Range...
I took it out to the outdoor range for the first time last weekend. I like the way it feels, but at this time I cannot confirm the accuracy from 50 yards. I do not think this a rifle issue, I believe my red dot was not properly calibrated. Also, I had two occurrences where the ammo did not eject properly. I did not clean the rifle after receiving it. I will clean it and update you after I take it back out to the range.

Ruger MPR 556
I looked up the reviews on youtube on the Ruger MPR after i purchased it. A few complaints about mags not releasing or staying in after pressing the eject button, and rounds jamming. I thought i made a mistake in purchasing it. As soon as it arrived, i took it out to the range and everything functioned properly. Accurate, low recoil, no jamming. proud purchase
target at 80 yards with iron sights

It's a keeper! Great choice!
Very nice trigger! Trigger is definite upgrade from most basic AR's. Shoots good right out of the box with factory ammo. I tried Brand Name stuff from 55 to 69gr. shot fine. With a Leupold Scope and sand bags produced nickle groups at 100 yards. Haven't tried the cheap cheap stuff and probably won't. But several basic brands and bullet weights shot good and didn't seem to be all that finicky.
No fails of any kind.

A very nice gun
I have been thinking about getting an AR15 for a while and did a bunch of research from different on-line sites on AR15s in 223. The Ruger MPR seemed to have the best options and price point. You can pay less and can pay a lot more and this was where I wanted to be for features vs price. It is an awesome gun, very well made and very nice to shoot. GrabAGun was excellent to deal with. The way things should be.
