Next rifle Sig 556
I think i found my next gun the Sig 556 http://www.sigarms.com/Products/Show...&productid=114
I guess i had better start saving
Yep! I'd say that will bust the old piggy bank.
I've heard some mixed stuff about it - apparently Sig made a few changes from the military/police version that have irritated a few people. I don't remember all the issues I read about - I think the biggest problem was using certain kinda of optics.
If I remember right, there is an issue w/ certain mounted optics and being able to use the charging knob. There apparently isn't much room to grab it if U mount an Eotech or some other long bodied optic...
It does look like a sweet gun, though
Everyone who knows me at all knows I love me some Sigs, but if I do decide to get a 556 I'll be waiting a few years. 1. Hopefully the price will dip, although Sig is getting ready to raise their prices (why?!) so that is seriously doubtful 2. Sig tends to release stuff before working out all the bugs, so I let them go two to three years.
You better get a real SIG, if you want to buy one at all
Try a 550/551/552.
They are damn accurate (especially the 550), don't have any flaws anymore, and are really used by military forces. (550 and 551 in the Swiss Army, 552 by Navy Seals)
Sure, you don't have the nice AR sotcks to choose from, nor can u use AR mags, but hell, you get a prooven rifle instead
Sucklead I'm also a big Sig fan I have a P226 9MM from 1989 it's one awesome shooting pistol

I love the look of the 556. I wish we were allowed such wonderful toys in California. Unfortunately for us any rifle with a pistol grip like that is out. About the closest I'll get to one is in the 007 video games.
I didnt get the Sig 556 but i did pick up this pair of AK's and 1,420 rounds.
It's the import laws, Reaper. The import laws are crazy.

Good choice, Nastynewt. Those rifles are a lot of fun.
As for the Sig 556, even if it was offered at a lower price, I'd take the AR-15 any day.
I sold one of the AK's and bought a new AR 15 Armalite Sat i should have it by Tues. I couldnt pass up the gun for $868 plus tax.
I love my new rifle I cant wait to get several hundred rounds to shoot
I shot it. I was un-impressed. It didnt perform any better than my mentors M4 parts gun. Its just a bit overpriced for my tastes. I will stick to my old FN-FAL.

Agree with Old Padawan on the SIG 556. I've only handled but not shot it, but it seemed front-heavy and rather clunky. Ergos are also not as good as the AR pattern. I don't know what could be done with a 556 that couldn't be done with an M4gery, except that the SIG has the Eurotrash cache and is "new."
