Ruger just announced a new 556 Takedown model and I honestly don’t see the draw. It’s rare for me to criticize Ruger, but it doesn’t take much to separate the upper from the lower on an AR and the only difference I can see in this new model is the few inches you save having the barrel removable from the upper receiver. At best it would be 5 or 6 inches and to me it just isn’t worth the price of admission. I did see somewhere they would offer a 300 Blackout option and I do find it interesting since a barrel switch would be a cinch, but an upper switch is also a cinch. Perhaps it is the best thing since sliced white bread, but I just don’t see it.
