I hope it wasn't the piston model. The other type is much better, it uses a gas tube. Ruger is an excellent brand. I have a Ruger pocket pistol I really like.

A friend of mine bought one of the Ruger piston models. He and his wife and kids have shot it a lot, and he's been happy with it. Regardless, Ruger has a pretty good reputation, and if there is a problem, they'll fix it for free. Enjoy your AR.

Sorry, I heard they had problems with the piston type rifles. Mine are all Colts with gas tubes. No problems.

Gotta love a man who knows what he wants. Good shotguns too. I have an SPX and like it a lot.

I'm a shotgun guy, but not really a tactical shotgun guy. Are those pumps all 500s or what?

If you're going to shoot steel case ammo, I suggest a BCM Extractor Upgrade Kit. BCM states that the O-ring is not required, but I have it installed anyway. My brass & steel really does fly now!
BTW, if you only need (1) kit, EBAY is the way to go. Shipping is less than BCM. Well, to my state anyway.

BCM SOPMOD Bolt Upgrade/Rebuild Kit

BCM Extractor Spring Upgrade Kit | eBay

Got one for my wife for her last Birthday, she loves it. Put a red dot on it for her and she wanted it back off. She loves the iron sights. But she can generally outshoot me no matter what the tool of choice!!
