Ruger AR 556 classic
School me please !

In my area they're under $600 w/a 30 rd. mag, which seems fair enough.

I'm extensively trained / qualified on the old M-16 A/ this won't be any great leap, but I have a few questions.

How are they out of the box?
I don't have the $1k+ it would take to buy a new Mini & make it "ready".

I AM a certified gunsmith and worked on many ARs when my shop was open so any necessary small mods are a non issue.

Are they REALLY dual ammo rifles accepting both brass .223 & steel 5.56 feed?

I don't need and am not interested in M.O.A. accuracy from this rifle.....but will it reliably give me center mass shilouette hits at 50/100 yds?

Many thanks for any answers past / current owners can give me.

I would check into S&W or Windham to see comparative prices first.

My Windham is a very interesting rifle and only accurate rifles are interesting. I pulled off the .410 upper yesterday and put the 5.56 upper back on and had to go check function and make sure POI was intact. 3 orange stickers 2 shots each at 50 yards off my bench. Zero was perfect all 3 pairs were touching
