At Bud's online...free shipping too...

Mine has been pretty much flawless for over 1500 rounds of various brass case ammo...accuracy is acceptable too...if you are looking for a budget AR from a reputable manufacturer...

Googled it, think it's the Delta Ring/base of handguards.
Photo in the OP link shows a knurled ring.

Why the odd front sight base?

My guess: "because we're Ruger."

It would be interesting to see what the bbl diameter under the gas block is. It's pretty clear that they did not intend for anyone to replace the gas block. By drilling the taper (?) pin holes through the top of the bbl, there is no way for someone to install a standard A2 front sight base without drilling new holes in the bbl (hardly worth the effort).

Yep...it's a Ruger...The front sight is an F height and is a nice example of machining. It seems like an expensive process for an AR sight on a basic rifle and the QD sling point is a nice touch. Just about everything carries the Ruger eagle logo (just in case you forget it's a Ruger Wink)...

Sorry about the giant photos...I'm trying other hosts since TinyPics no longer plays well with others...I'll try to resize it...



The threaded delta ring does make removing the handguard easier (as if that's something you have to do often)...again, it's Ruger Razz

Because they have the capacity to make things "their" way. They dont have the capacity to make a forged front sight base, and they can save money by making it themselves, so they will just make a CNC machined front sight base. My understanding of Ruger is that they like to make as much as possible in house to control cost.
