It appears that ruger is following the latest trend and their new models have the keymod. If thats so, than the only place to get it would be from them. Other manufacturers are not likely to make one since ruger already makes it, and it will only work on that rifle, so their is no various rifles it will work with, which in turn limits marketability. Best bet contact them and inquire about buying one.Came across some pictures of a SR-556 Takedown that had a different handguard than the original quad rail. It appears to be a keymod. So far I haven't found any more info on this not even from Ruger's website.
Well I do not own one but I will give my opinion for what its worth. I am not sold on the takedown since the normal ar is already a sort of takedown design.Can someone who owns a takedown model advise if its actually worth the extra $ ? It seems a bit gimicky to me as in my mind all AR's are in effect 'takedown' rifles due to the easy separation of upper and lower.
I understand that this model makes barrel changes easier, but for the price difference why not just buy a different upper ? Also with changing barrels won't you have the hassle of needing to re-sight in the optic anyway ? Whereas if you changed the whole upper you could keep the same optic and not need to sight it in, so at first sight I really don't understand the point of this model ???
I want to like this 'takedown' model because in general I really like rugers, BUT I really don't get the point of this model ??? Can someone enlighten me ???
Is that 'AR-15 and a half' or 'AR-15 one and two'?I have 2 AR10, so I call the SR 556 takedown my AR 15 1/2. For me it works.
I think you revived a thread that should be dead. If I'm reading the Ruger site correctly I don't see a take down model any more.Is that 'AR-15 and a half' or 'AR-15 one and two'?
It seems we need a nomenclature system for the AR-15, or maybe there is one. Based on what I see at local ranges and in ALL the AR-15/Rifle/Gun magazines, there are more AR-15s in 'other than 5.56' configuration that there are in standard 5.56 config.
I see this abbreviated many ways and always wonder what is correct: AR15.556 AR15.300 AR15.6.5, or AR-15 in (caliber). I suppose whatever it takes to communicate the configuration. Someone correct me if you know the right method to describe these configurations.
