Sturm, Ruger & Co., Inc. announces the AR-556™ semi-automatic, M4-style, direct impingement Modern Sporting Rifle. With all major components machined at Ruger's Mayodan, NC facility, the AR-556 offers consumers an affordable, American-made Modern Sporting Rifle with the rugged reliability they have come to expect from Ruger.

"The AR-556 is the first firearm designed and built in our Mayodan, North Carolina, facility, and we couldn't be more thrilled with the finished product," remarked Ruger President and Chief Operating Officer Chris Killoy. "Through extensive design review and product testing, our Mayodan team has delivered a solid rifle that our customers will be proud to own - and we are proud to call a Ruger," he concluded.

The AR-556 is constructed from top-quality components, including forged 7075-T6 aluminum upper and lower receivers and a cold hammer-forged chrome-moly steel barrel with M4 feed ramp cuts. Chambered in 5.56 NATO, the AR-556's carbine-length, flat-top, M4 design is fully configured with a Ruger® Rapid Deploy folding rear sight, milled F-height gas block with post front sight, forward assist, dust cover, and brass deflector. Other features include a Magpul Moe Stock, MOE Handguard, Moe Trigger Guard, MOE pistol grip, improved trigger-reach grip, enlarged trigger guard and one 30-round Magpul® PMag®. Standardized M4/AR components are utilized throughout, so the AR-556 can be customized easily.

The Ruger AR-556 was extensively tested during its development, with over a quarter million rounds expended during the final validation, endurance, and Ruger "jury" testing. With a MSRP of $849, the AR-556 is an affordable yet well-equipped M4-style Modern Sporting Rifle from Ruger - one of the most trusted names in American firearms.
