Ruger announced the company is now selling “state compliant” versions of the AR-556 rifle. The new guns will lack some of the basic features of a common AR-15 rifle. Among the changes to this gun are:
- reduced capacity magazine (10-rounds)
- fixed length of pull stock (it retains an M-4 style look)
- non-threaded barrel
According to Ruger, these rifles will be available to residents of the following states:
- New Jersey
Ruger also states the rifle will be available for sale in the unincorporated US territory of Puerto Rico.
The suggested retail price of these state compliant rifles is $749 – the same as the MSRP on the full-featured guns.
