MD legal Ruger AR-556?

What are the field reports on this rifle?

https://ruger.com/products/ar556/specSheets/8502.html

Said to be MD legal HBAR without bayonet lug and fixed, noncollapsible stock. Comes with a 10 round magazine.

Just thinking maybe I need one!

I've read they're decent for what they are. They can be found around here for $500.

After you buy one and realize how much you will change on it, you will just build your next one. AR's are like bunnies, they keep multiplying!

Fixed stock and no flash hider? I'd pass on that. I've seen IPs advertise the model # 8511 which has an adjustable stock and an A2 flash hider, that would be my preference.

GymRatz has had #8511 in stock for under $500 at least 3 times this year, and I've seen them advertised by a few other IP's (Maybe Jlowe?).

In case you're not aware, collapsible stocks are MD legal.

You don't need a fixed stock, you just can't have a folding one.

I picked one up at the last sale, and it's a fine entry level AR. It wouldn't be my first choice as my only AR, but as a spare/backup/dependable shooter, it's just fine. I'd definitely list it as a good value, especially at John's typical sale price.

Good to know. I need to figure what limits MD puts on the AR so I can get the most bang for the buck, so to speak.

Actually, you can have a folding stock. The features test: You cannot have a folding stock, detachable mag AND flash hider. You can have a folding stock, detachable mag, and a muzzle break (or no barrel accessory at all). Or you can have a collapsible stock, detachable mag, and flash hider.

What makes the AR-15 MD compliant is the "Heavy Barrel" mainly, no so much the features -most AR15s have a collapsible stock not a folder.
