I haven't tried one out yet, but I have been reading a few reviews. Cost is kind of high, but Ruger really put some thought into SR 556 and did a great job of outsourcing some quality add-ons. I would be really interested as well with some first-hand experience. If it turns out to be a winner, I would opt for the Ruger SR-556 over the Sig 556...solely due to my familiarity of the M4 platform.

I don't know anything about it yet, but if it lives up to Ruger's reputation, it should be one reliable and durable machine. I've always said that Ruger has made mediocrity into a fine art, but I give them their dues when it comes to reliable and durable guns. So far it's a bit overpriced, but I guess only time will tell as the newness wears off and street prices adjust to the market.

If I was going to buy a piston rifle I would get a LMT, LWRC or Sig piston in that order.
LMT

LWRC

Sig 556

These rifles have been out for a while now and have been proven.
IMO and experience don't buy a first generation firearm.
If you just have to have the Ruger you should wait untill after the inevitable recall.

I'd rather have a gas piston gun with a proper stacked bolt carrier group...

If I had the choice I'd pick the Sig 556 but thats just me.

I'm impressed, the piston fixes the biggest problem with the "AR" design. It's on my to buy list.
