    So my dealer is one of the lucky ones to get in the 556... thinking about grabbing it and wanted to get some opinions from anybody who's got to check one out or already has one..

    Doesnt do it for me I'll wait for the Masada. If you already have an AR or lower I'd just get a piston upper instead.

    How much? MSRP is 1299 but you can't find any for that price

    I haven't heard too many good things about it, especially for the price. Save your money for something better.

    Tell me more about this Masada.... It's available for everybody?? When?? pricing??

    Really like the looks of the Sig but if you can show me similar or cheaper pricing on something that looks pretty damn sikk and is quality product like Sig or better.....

    The M&P one looks nice too...

    Seeing how often magpul has come up with reasons to delay something as simple as their new stock, I'm tremendously skeptical of magpul's ability to come out with the masada or pdr on any sort of timely schedule. I wouldn't put off buying a gun for a gun that might be out in years, ymmv.

    I also have heard alot of bad things about the sig. It seems like it has some quality problems and might be overpriced for what you get. I'd say get an ar15 and deck it out. Get a .22 conversion kit for cheap practice, get a 6.8 spl upper setup and mags if you want a better man stopper than 5.56, throw an eotech or laser on there if thats your thing...

    The sig looks nice and thats about it and I don't expect to get a masada until my pre-order for the bitboys glaze3d card is filled.

    Piston uppers are an answer to a problem that doesn't exist, clean your weapon.

    I called the dealer and he gets everythgin granted but he's sayin it's a brand new gun from Sig and they have too much of a name to put something out if it's goign to have problems..plus "don't listen to guys on the internet do any of them own one? No"

    Your money buy it if you want, but who has more to lose a bunch of people on the internet, or a dealer who'll make a couple hundred bucks off the sale :dunno:
    you could put together a nice AR for the sig15's price.

    I'd encourage you to look at sigforum and see some of the broken handguns and rifles with problems that the big name is putting out.

    What are you talking about I bought the M&P :ugh:

    I asked you to list where to get stuff for the same price that's better and all you did was bitch about problems they had with OTHER models. The dealer has no reason to push one way or the other cause more than likely we all buy off of him anyway cause he gives us the best price on whatever we want. So instead of tooling out how about posting something useful like what you don't like on the sig, what makes your ar better and why plus the price diff.

    Lucky? Mine had 3 and sold 2 a while ago. After seeing a 552 (swiss arms CQB) I really would rather have one of those than the 556, if I could.

    you have to meet your sig quota from what I understand to be able to even get one and they weren't shippin that many out. I know the rep only got 2 in for the area and he said that they were actually placing them to be shipped and other reps were grabbin them and sending them out before they left for other reps :ugh2:

    it still looks sick though..
