Ruger Introduces State Compliant AR-556

Legal for sale in several states.

Ruger AR-556 State Compliant

On March 17, 2017, Ruger announced the Ruger AR-556. This version of their semiautomatic rifle weapon meets standards making it legal for sale in Colorado and Maryland, Hawaii, Massachusetts, New Jersey and Puerto Rico.

The new gun lacks some of the features of the AR-15 which make it not legal for sale in some states. First, it’s got a reduced capacity magazine of 10 rounds. It also has a fixed length of pull stock and a non-threaded barrel.

Retails for $800.
