The Wiki page for the Ruger SR 556 shows all discontinued except for the Takedown and CLA model (Carbine Light Adaptable), like you stated only the takedown is listed on their website.I couldn't find any standard SR-556 rifles on the Ruger site, only the take down. Are they discontinuing the line?
I put a deposit on mt SR556 about two week before Sandy Hook. I paid $800. I went in to the LGS the day after the terrible event and I couldn't get in the place!The SR's only negative point was its much higher cost, IMO.
I received an email from Gunsite on Thanksgiving for a Black Friday sale. You neede to email after midnight for one of several SR556 CLA's they were letting go for $700 bucks. Well, I forgot about it until late Friday. The weekend and part of the next week passed before I saw the email in my junk folder saying the gun was mine at the special price. A quick check on-line shows them no lower than $1700-1900.I put a deposit on mt SR556 about two week before Sandy Hook. I paid $800.

I finally pushed to the counter and nodded at the clerk, who is extremely good at his job, and he took my SR556 out of a guy's hands (it had a sold tag on it) and handed it to me.
The guy offered me "twice what you paid for it" and for one long moment I was tempted. But, I had saved, read about and wanted to have this rifle in the safe.
I'm not at all sorry I didn't take the offer. "Baby" is my favorite!
I'm not even sure I would take the offer today at the most recent MSRP.
Hmmm... since they're re-doing their website, I suppose it could be a "glitch."I went to the website and it gave an option to go to their beta site. Had to download the catalog pdf and it shows 5 SR-556 models. The takedown, 2 standard models ( 1 state compliant 10 round model), and 2 carbine models.
