We would like to thank all of our readers for a wonderful 2017 and welcome you guys to 2018 with PSA!!! This year we have tons of stuff planned including new PSA products, new Custom Shots, and plenty of gun talk!!! Today we want to bring you wacky shooters another installment of From the Vault with one of our go-to rifles: the Ruger AR-556! We’ve had this puppy quite some time and we thought we’d open the vault and let you guys take a quick look! So without further adieu….
Of course the rifle is chambered in .223/5.56 NATO and will chew almost any thing you load in its magazine-well (even Uncle Bob’s Reloads!!!). The rifle came out of the box with standard AR features (well….any decent AR in our opinion!!) including a dust cover, brass deflector, and right-handed selector switch. The charging handle was a little skimpy to us so we replaced it with an ambi cousin! The FDE furniture was a lovely upgrade that we deemed necessary and makes this one of the most attractive rigs we own. With a 1:8 twist rate and legendary M4 feed ramps, the operational reliability of this rifle is amazing.
We have also added a UTG light/laser combo, Magpul angled fore-grip, Magpul MS4 sling, a BAD Lever, and a wonderful piece of illuminated glass. When it comes to tricking out a rig, this one takes the cake! We LOVE this rifle and we think that it is complete for most applications that AR’s can be used for. We will take this guy hunting, apply it in tactical situations, and use it for home protection too!!! All in all this little bugger has it!! Check out these awesome pics of our Ruger AR-556!!!

We want to thank you for taking out the time to stop by our lane at the shooting range!! We hope that you enjoyed your stay and hope that you stop back by early and often to catch up on all PSA updates! We truly hope that we were able to hit the target, and if you ever have any questions please don’t hesitate to shoot them our way!! We look forward to shooting the breeze with you soon again!!
And as always….remember to watch your six and stay low!!!
