That really bothers me, there is a local show this weekend that usually draws a lot of dealers. I HAD every intention of buying trading for an SR556, I guess that will be put on hold.Hey folks, this is just one of them bad days. I'm just getting over the shock of discovering the bolt carrier is breaking in half. Calling Ruger tomorrow. Something around 400 rounds fired. No evedence yet of bolt tilt. Well I'm sick, going to bed.
Why? If I had the money I would pick one up. If something happens to it, Ruger will fix it and if you shoot enough, some time, some place, one of your firearms will have break down too. I personally believe that SR556 would be a great rifle in that platform to pick up, because of Rugers support. But it is Rugers first generation in the platform, I would expect some issues. But its your money, buy what you want. A lot of people complain about the Mini's and I still buy them.That really bothers me, there is a local show this weekend that usually draws a lot of dealers.

Ditto!The bolt carrier is not casted it's made from billet steel. That has to be cracked. Either way why would you want to worry about it all the time. Send it back and see what Ruger says and put and worries to rest.
