So far so good with my new Ruger. Only put 20 rounds through it but I can easily see how shooters eat up ammo. Very fun to shoot. Gunprime was awesome, shipped very next day. Will do business with them again.

Ruger AR556

This gun is cheap and amazingly accurate out of the box. Absolutely zero jams and I ran 300 rounds through it the day I got it.

Purchased this gun as my 1st AR15. I have nothing but good things to say about ordering through I placed my order on a Friday morning and it cleared my credit card processing period on Monday. Not long after the order cleared I received an Email from gunprime asking me what local FFL dealer I wanted the gun shipped to. I opted to pick the gun up from one of their partners in Birmingham, Al. I picked the gun up on Wednesday with no issues.
This is a very basic AR. I've heard others complain about the trigger being heavy or gritty but mine is smooth and clean. The handgrip is comfortable but I can see it getting slick if your hands get sweaty. Everything else is very tight and clean. This is probably the best bang for your buck you can find.
