Ruger SR556 6.8 SPC
Sturm, Ruger & Co has just recently announced their all new SR-556 6.8 SPC rifle. The SR-556 is designed to bring more firepower to the battlefield in an AR style platform. The new SR-556 6.8 features a two stage piston system that delivers a smoother, cleaner, and cooler weapon when compared to traditional gas driven designs. It’s one piece bolt carrier does a fantastic job of reducing recoil which not only improves shooter accuracy but also the life and durability of the rifle.
A four position gas regulator gives you the ability to adjust to your ammo or environment and add that to a chrome lined cold forged barrel and you got yourself a serious and accurate weapon. The AR systems may have been done time and time again but I consider what Ruger is doing to be subtle evolutions brining this platform to near perfect.
Troy industries folding battle sights, quad rail and rail covers, and a six position stock prepare you for your own modifications. It features a 1:10 twist barrel that is 16.12″ long and a Mini/SR-556 flash suppressor. Coming in at a total weight of 7.75 pounds minus the magazine.
