Ruger SR-556VT AR-15 Rifle, Gas Piston, 5.56 NATO, 20 Inch Heavy Barrel, A2 Stock, Black Finish, Ruger 5914
The SR-556 offers Ruger’s legendary rugged reliability and employs a patent-pending, chrome-plated, two-stage piston-driven operating system that provides the user with a cleaner, cooler-running, reliable firearm that is truly state-of-the-art. The chrome-lined gas block and chrome-plated piston and regulator work together to provide a smooth power delivery stroke to the bolt carrier, and the by-products of the gas system are vented out the bottom of the gas block, away from the bolt carrier, keeping the action clean and free from contaminants. This results in significantly improved performance over gas-driven rifles.
The Ruger SR-556VT features a target-style trigger with a short “take-up” stage followed by a crisp, light target pull, and it comes with three magazines. The lightweight, adaptable handguard with flattop receiver features a Picatinny rail that extends the full length of the handguard. Additional rails may be purchased for the 3, 6, and 9 o’clock positions.
