The AR-15-style rifle is one of the fastest-growing segments of the firearm market, and for good reason: They're reliable, easy to shoot, adjustable for a wide variety of body types, highly adaptable and just plain fun. In many ways, the AR-15 is a perfect family rifle because it can be easily modified to fit most heights and lengths of pull. One sticking point for many families, though, has been their prices, which don't fit into every budget. That's where Ruger's AR-556 carbine comes in. This firearm brings all the quality and reliability you've come to expect from Ruger, but with a price point of just $800. Want to learn more about this terrific entry-level shooter?
