Ruger Selling “State Compliant” Rifles

    state compliant AR-556

    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:

    • Colorado
    • Hawaii
    • Massachusetts
    • 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.
