The felt recoil is also much different. The only issue that I have with RUGER is it is INVESTMENT CASTING. I do not know if they do it wil the 556 but I would guess that they do because everything else they make is Investment Casting.
But I do like the platform of the RUGER 556 as they are a great value. :agree:

Ruger has a business where they make AR and other parts for some of the big boys !
They were doing this long before they got into the AR business!

Then it stands to reason that it was only a matter of time. If they were already making AR parts for some of the larger companies, it wasn't a far stretch for them to step out and put together their own AR.
I'll be honest, I don't think its as pretty as Colt's M4, but it really does come down to performance. Its not quite as comfortable as S&W's M&P was for me, but really close. Either way, I've always been a sucker for Rugers and they've never failed me so I wouldn't have any problem trusting one.
