So as a few of you know I have been looking for an AR. Had my sights set on the Ruger-556. Well I went in to look at them and saw this beauty. When I held it I love the balance it had in the center. It wasn't quite the color I wanted being all black. The Ruger I was looking at was a flat dark earth color. But this one had a better slide pull, and the trigger was a night and day difference than the Ruger. So this is what I came home with today. Happy Father's Day to myself.
