Let me tell you, if you are looking for a great entry level AR-15, Ruger AR-15, model AR-556 is the way to go!

This rifle is a beautiful gun! It comes with everything you need to get on the range and shoot. I personally believe that it is the best AR-15 under 1000… actually, WELL UNDER! You can get this rifle for about $500-$600!

Ruger AR-556 rifle comes with one magazine, basic pop up sight, dust cover, 3 position stock and other entry level features. These features, however, are not standard to all entry level AR-15s… surprisingly. There are same priced guns out there, like DPMS Oracle 5.56, that does not have a dust cover (for example), which is weird.

I have made a review of this Ruger AR-556, but it did not have the shooting footage, so here you go! Also, I do have the separate video for cleaning and disassembly.

P.S. I recommend you getting a rubber butt pad like this one, to make shooting this gun even more pleasurable!
