"We are excited to bring the portability and ease of storage that we introduced with the 10/22 Takedown to a modern sporting rifle" said Ruger CEO Mike Fifer. "The SR-556 Takedown has all the reliability of the original two-stage piston SR-556 and adds new and innovative features for MSR shooters."
The removable 16.1", chrome-lined, cold hammer-forged Mil-Spec 41V45 chrome-moly-vanadium steel barrel is chambered in 5.56 NATO. A factory-set headspace requires no adjustment. The barrel assembly includes an elevation- and windage-adjustable flip-up front sight so that the zero stays with the barrel. The SR-556 Takedown also sports the shorter Ruger flash hider on the ½"-28 threaded muzzle. Those who prefer a larger cartridge can purchase a replaceable barrel kit chambered in 300 AAC Blackout (go to ShopRuger.com). The cold hammer-forged 300 AAC Blackout barrel is 16.1" long, has a 1:7" twist, and is capped by a 5/8"-24 threaded muzzle fitted with a Ruger flash hider. This range-ready barrel's headspace is set at the factory and comes complete with a metal flip-up elevation & windage adjustable front sight and two, 30-round metal magazines marked with "300 AAC BLACKOUT" to ensure easy differentiation.
The SR-556 Takedown maintains the best-of-class elements of the SR-556 and comes standard with a host of accessories: quad rail hand guard; slider bar for removing the barrel; upper receiver dust cover, forward assist, and metal flip-up windage adjustable rear sight; haricot anodized aluminum parts. The Ruger Elite 452 two-stage trigger is installed in the standard mil-spec pattern lower receiver. At 7 lbs. 10 ozs., the SR-556 Takedown handles easily with Magpul's MOE grip and MOE SL stock on a mil-spec buffer tube.
Three, 30-round Magpul PMAG magazines and three full-length rail covers ship with the SR-556 Takedown in a ballistic nylon case.
