Weight and price alone would steer me away. Maybe if I was sitting at a bench all day w/ it in some sort of sled but I sit enough throughout a normal day. I really don't want to sit around the range. It could shoot .01" groups but when that extra weight starts taking its toll those groups will open up like a S. Broadway hooker.

I've shot it in other situations, standing up, running as well. Does just fine.

OP: Here's a video, not me but a very good reviewer:
Part 1


Part 2

I'm not sure how others feel but I wouldn't base any decisions on what that guy has to say.

I've got to agree as far as buying decesions, but some of Nutnfancy's videos are fun to watch.

I watch them as well. Sometimes I get through the entire video, sometimes I can't. They have their entertainment value for sure.

All a matter of opinions, everyones got one.

The maker of the video makes it a point that he simply wants the information he offers to be a datapoint, so take the facts the video gives and make a decision. He definitely does a good job reviewing the product and letting others make up their own mind. Its a better job reviewing than what any of us has brought to the table so far in this thread.

Its easy to type a few paragraphs about an item, but when you create a real review like that guy does there is obviously some time spent in really trying out the product, and informing others so they can have solid facts when they form their own opinion.

In the video you can see they are not just sitting on the bench with this firearm, they also bench shoot for accuracy tests and shows his results, he's also gone as far as to customize the firearm and gives some opinions on this as well. I see nothing wrong with this.

The Ruger SR556, look into it, its a solid firearm built right.

I agree! That's all those videos are meant to be. Nutnfancy states it all the time he does not want us to think everything he says we have to agree with.

From my experience w/ prolonged use of the M16/M4/AR family 8 pounds w/o optic, light, etc. is to heavy.

If I were in the market for a piston op. AR I would be looking at LWRC. Their M6A2 w/ quad rail is right at 7 pounds and they have a lightweight option in the mid to upper 6 pound range. A pound is a huge difference.

Nobody is talking bad just relaying some useful information.

I agree to disagree.

W/ what? That 6 pounds is less than 8 pounds? LWRC is the better choice? Or that nobody is talking bad and are simply relaying useful information?
