Bought the rifle + case combo for 509 USD. That's easily $150 cheaper than the price of just the rifle at my local gun stores. Got some precise groupings with the Magpul iron sights at close range (don't have an optic yet to put on it). No misfires or other problems so far; it's pretty reliable (used 55 gr Federal ammo). The gun came inside of the case/bag included in the offer, and the bag gets the job done. The "magazine charger," however, is not something I see useful. I'm not complaining. Also, the gun had some small issues, such as a wobbly stock, a tiny wiggle between the upper and lower receivers, and an initially hard-to-pull charging handle (when I broke into the gun it worked smoothly as it should). But at just $500, you can't beat this value. I will just put a new stock and recoil spring on the gun (preferably a recoil pad too). From what I understand a lot of AR-15s have similar issues. You can get 4 of these for the price of one $2000 AR.
In conclusion, I'd recommend one of these to anyone looking to get their first rifle. It's "barebones," sure, but with a couple swapped parts (maybe add an optic) you'll have a great experience. If you question the gun's reliability, check out the meltdown test on youtube. They couldn't kill it with 100s of rounds of full auto (automatic lower receiver).
I bought this ammo for my Marlin Model 60 rimfire rifle. In the first 100 rounds, I experienced an inconsistency in firing; there were at least a half dozen misfires, several double feeds and failures to feed. Maybe this ammunition is not designed for the Marlin? Anyways, it wasn't the gun's fault since it only had one misfire with 500 rounds of another brand. I will purchase a different brand next time.
What can I say. An all around great experience. I ordered this gun on a Monday and it was at my FFL on Wednesday. The gun was in great condition. I cleaned it, added a few drops of oil and off to the range. It shot flawlessly. The Ruger design with the Polymer grip area really helped with recoil. For a snub nose 38 the recoil is more than acceptable. You do not get that familiar sting when you fire the small frame guns. The accuracy was great and the look an feel is perfect. I love this gun. Great job Ruger and an even better job by my favorite on line gun store, GunBuyer!
