Product Details

Ruger AR-556 MPR PROOF Research Carbon Magpul Lite Rifle


This Ruger AR-556 MPR rifle features an 18" PROOF Research carbon fiber wrapped barrel that is both attractive and significantly lighter than standard barrels, while still offering excellent accuracy and repeatability.

Rifle-length gas system paired with chambering in .223 Wylde, a well-established chamber geometry that safely, accurately, and reliably functions with both 5.56 NATO and .223 Remington ammunition.
Lower receiver is fitted with Magpul PRS Lite stock that balances the rifle and has secure length of pull and comb height adjustments for the best fit. Magpul MOE-K2 grip provides ergonomic access to trigger and safety controls.
Handguard is free-floated for accuracy and the slim, 15" length provides enhanced ergonomics.
Bolt is mil-spec 9310 and is machined, shot peened and proof tested for strength and durability.
The Ruger Elite 452 AR-Trigger is a two-stage trigger that offers a smooth, crisp, 4.5 pound trigger pull. It features a full-strength hammer spring for consistent primer ignition and a lightweight hammer that enables a faster lock time for improved accuracy.
Magpul M-LOK accessory attachment slots along the 3:00, 6:00 and 9:00 positions with additional slots on the angled faces near the muzzle.
Ruger muzzle brake is a radial port design that significantly reduces felt recoil and muzzle movement. The threaded barrel allows for standard muzzle accessories to be installed.
Made from aerospace-grade 7075-T6 aluminum forging, the flat top upper receiver includes a forward assist, dust cover and brass deflector.
Bolt carrier and gas key have chrome-plated inside diameters to provide exceptional resistance to hot gases. The gas key is staked so that it will not loosen after extensive firing.
Includes: one, 30-round Magpul PMAG magazine.
