If your new to the ar world theirs a huge argument over DI vs Piston they both have their pros and cons the reason I got the 556 is because all my other ruger guns worked great the piston system keeps the carbon fouling in the piston camber rather than the bolt I lub my BCG once in a while it doesn't dry up like the DI guns but a good point is the us military uses DI guns they work its just a matter of preference I have the 556E and I have at least 5 to 600 rounds through it with absolutely no problem it even cycles steel cased ammo but again do your research and find out what your going to use it for and make your decision it's a preference think so don't let anyone say one is better than the other they both do what their ment to do

It is amazing how little people do shoot their AR-15's. I have shot both of mine over 1,000 times and I consider them dust catchers. Both of mine are pre Remington, DPMS. All I changed was the sights. I didn't like the sights that came in the kits. Brownells had nice metal M16 style sights on sale so I replaced the sights.

Around here the Rugers are going for $1800, thats the reason for getting the AR. If you want different gas settings for different loads, just put an adjustable gas block on an AR

The DI system was made for use in tropical or polar conditions and everything in between. They need very little attention. The gas system makes or breaks the deal when using these arms.
It is difficult to service a gas piston under field conditions. The DI system may have problems? They are however light and easy to run in swamps, deserts or tundra.

Punctuation would make this readable.
