Now this new/old what ever comes to the shelves, and still people aren't happy.
Question, what will make people happy? A rifle that you actually have to fly to Switzerland to pick up? I think SIG is bending over backwards trying to make their customer base happy, and trying to listen to what the firearms community wants.... I say Good Job SIG! When I have the cash I would like to purchase this rifle....
this rifle was made to resemble exterior-only what is a fantastic rifle.
the 556 is a good gun, I've had two great ones, and never seen one that failed personally.
but you can't compare either the 556 or this one to a real swiss gun.
Like all AR's, it's not so much the parts. It comes down to QC.
