New Product Announcement from Ruger - AR-556 Pistol in .350 Legend

A still very new platform for Ruger, the AR‐556® Pistol is now chambered for the popular .350 Legend. This new configuration is also equipped with the standard SB Tactical® SBA3™ Pistol Stabilizing Brace®, which features integral QD sling sockets and a minimalist design. This pistol also boasts a pistol‐length gas system for reliability. The 9" aluminum free‐float handguard features Magpul® M‐LOK® accessory attachment slots for easy customization.

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.

Pistol‐length gas system provides smoother operation and reduces felt recoil.

Cold hammer‐forged 4140 chrome‐moly steel barrel with ultra‐precise rifling provides exceptional accuracy, longevity and easy cleaning.

Optimized feed ramp provides improved reliability, and the matte black oxide finish 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.

The threaded barrel with factory‐installed thread protector allows for standard muzzle accessories to be installed.

Also includes: One magazine.
