Hello People of the ar15armory nation. I have a curious question for anyone that wants to answer. So I have a Ruger AR-556 that I have owned for little over a year and have put close to 2,200 rounds through it. This is my first AR-15 that I own. With the buffer I have wear on the front face that is really odd, and I'm wondering if this is typical wear or something that I would need to get looked at? And also everything is factory except the buttstock, end plate, handguard and charging handle/lever.

There is an excellent Facebook group Ruger SR/AR 556 that you should look into.

I believe the main issue with the Ruger AR is the back of the bolt carrier was leaving a circular groove on the buffer.

I own a Ruger AR556 and haven't had any issues with mine.

My buffers have wear but not as much as that.

 

Looks like this and this one has 6k on it.

@mkonopik thanks for the Facebook tip. I'll look into that. 

And I pray to all things good that I didn't get a leman.

What kind of shot groups are you getting with yours?
