You're dead-on in the assesment that the SR556 is "nose-heavy".

I have the 556c and I really like it. even though the weight difference doesn't sound like much, it makes a difference in how the gun handles.

anyone tried to take the quad rail off? I've been thinking of sending my barrel to ADCO to get lightened and shortened.

AFAIK the rails are pinned in place and can not be removed by the end user.

I am also running and Eotech one mine (517) plus a tango down VFG but will be swaping out to a Magpul VGF (is on the mail). Yes it is heavy, especially up front. I wanted to send mine to get cut to 14.5 but the barrel etching would be ruined. I have a little wear on the tube but nothing serious. From what i have read it will kind of stop after a 1k rounds or so. I still have to replace the bolt pin to a round one, because it has marred my upper a bit.

Does anyone know how to keep spare AA batteries on the Magpul ACS from rattleting(sp).
A packing peanut(pink doubleloop works best) works for most anything I choose to slide in there with it.(guntool)

Yea they are pinned on, I'm sure I could get it apart. BUT, putting it back together is question my real concern.

BTW.. I emailed ADCO and am waiting for a response

Another Review

Checkout this review of the Ruger SR-556C. It is still in work, but provides many photos and details (especially Part 3).
