  • Ruger® Rapid Deploy fold­ing rear sight pro­vides windage adjusta­bil­i­ty, and pairs with the ele­va­tion adjustable front sight for a sol­id, reli­able aim­ing sys­tem. The rear sight can be fold­ed out of the way to make room for optics, but can be instant­ly rede­ployed if need­ed.
  • Six-posi­tion tele­scop­ing M4-style butt­stock and Mil-Spec buffer tube allow the rifle to be prop­er­ly sized for dif­fer­ent shoot­ers, or vary­ing lev­els of out­er­wear or defen­sive gear.
  • Made from aero­space-grade 7075-T6 alu­minum forg­ing, the flat­top upper receiv­er includes a for­ward assist, dust cov­er and brass deflec­tor, and is Type III hard coat anodized for max­i­mum dura­bil­i­ty.
  • Bolt is machined from 9310 alloy steel and is shot peened and pres­sure (proof) test­ed to ensure strength, struc­tur­al integri­ty and dura­bil­i­ty.
  • Front sight post is ele­va­tion adjustable, and a front sight tool is includ­ed. The A2-style F-height allows co-wit­ness with many optics.
  • Patent pend­ing Bar­rel Nut and Delta Ring are designed for one per­son hand­guard removal and instal­la­tion. The design accepts most stan­dard car­bine length hand­guards. The bar­rel nut uses a stan­dard wrench and can be swapped with a Mil-Spec bar­rel nut if desired.
  • Milled gas block is locat­ed at a car­bine-length (M4) posi­tion for improved bal­ance and han­dling. Mul­ti­ple attach­ment points include a QD sock­et and bay­o­net lug, for many sling and acces­so­ry mount­ing options. Ser­ra­tions on the angled face of the gas block pro­vide a low-glare sur­face.
  • Medi­um con­tour cold ham­mer-forged bar­rel with ultra-pre­cise rifling pro­vides excep­tion­al accu­ra­cy, longevi­ty and easy clean­ing. The 1:8″ twist rate sta­bi­lizes bul­lets from 35 to 77 grains, and the 5.56 NATO cham­ber allows the use of both 5.56 NATO and .223 Rem. Ammu­ni­tion. M4 feed ramps pro­vide improved oper­a­tional reli­a­bil­i­ty, and the mat­te black oxide fin­ish reduces glare and pro­vides cor­ro­sion resis­tance. A Ruger® flash sup­pres­sor is pro­vid­ed, and the 1/2″-28 thread­ed bar­rel allows for stan­dard muz­zle acces­sories to be installed.
  • Ergonom­ic pis­tol grip fea­tures an extend­ed trig­ger reach for more pre­cise trig­ger con­trol.
  • Chrome-plat­ed bolt car­ri­er inside diam­e­ter and chrome-plat­ed gas key inside diam­e­ter pro­vide excep­tion­al resis­tance to hot gas­es. The gas key is staked so that it will not loosen after exten­sive fir­ing. A mat­te black oxide fin­ish on the exte­ri­or of the bolt car­ri­er pro­vides cor­ro­sion resis­tance.
  • Sin­gle-stage trig­ger pro­vides durable and reli­able fire con­trol. The enlarged trig­ger guard is designed to allow gloved shoot­ing.
  • Hand­guards are made from heat-resis­tant glass-filled nylon for shoot­ing com­fort and dura­bil­i­ty.
  • Also includes: One, 30-round Mag­pul® PMAG®.
