Is Ruger still producing the GB and AC-556? I don't see these things in any recent LE catalogs or periodicals. Has Ruger dropped them completely?

They have dropped the folding stocks. So this probably means that if the AC556 is in production, it carries a standard stock. Wouldn't suprise me if they did drop the model though. They seem to be getting more and more politically correct.

Yup, I am pretty sure they don't make either of these. The GB was intended to be a service rifle, so sold to small countries in large quantities. That never panned out, so its gone. The AC556 is automatic, so they could only make LE sales these days, the AR sorta won this automatic LE rifle thing, and its actually not exactly a mini; its got a longer receiver and such, so is needlessly difficult for them to make/stock in small quantities.
