    GET OFF MY LAWN!
    Got the email from SIGarms today that they are shipping the 556s out. Looks like it might be time to sell off one of the ARs and get one.

    The 556 SWAT model is coming from the factory with a railed flattop and a 4 rail handguard. You can put on sights you like.

    The rail is too high. Any sights you put on it will be too high for a good cheek weld, unless Sig has changed the specs since I fondled the rifles at SHOT this year.

    Still cheaper to just get a POF upper.

    Fuck the Sig and the 556. When they make a true 550 series for our market then I'll dump my AR.

    Uppers start at $9xx depending on what you want on it.

    Well, the upper on the 556 is a 550 upper and you can get the Swiss Arms fore end and slap it on. Thats half way in becoming a true 550 rifle.:)

    Which is why Sig will get none of my money untill they're willing to make it mine.

    Yay for no front BUIS unless you buy SIGs or put an aftermarket rail on!

    Is SIG hiring HK engineers and marketing people or what?

    I've heard sig say yeah we will, maybe as an option, maybe a replacement part, etc. Either way the picture above is what is here today after the long wait. Maybe in another year they'll have a folder but meh.
