Does the SIR M version have an advantage over the C version of the same model? Thanks.

Ditto what the Ricker said! IMHO, the advantages of the SIR M over the SIR C are negligible but the loss of versatility of the M models is real issue. Ironically the military testers preferred the C models over the M models for this reason. The C model allows the rifle or carbine to maintain features that will allow it to easily go back to the standard configuraton as needed. As usual YMMV...

I see no reason to have a delta ring since it had one purpose in life and that purpose is gone with any of the rail system types put on over the barrel. The M model SIR'S are lighter with the aprox. 2oz of delta assembly removed. They are more stream lined with less sticking out, and a bit more rigid. Jack

True, but it's still easier to install a SIR C...[;)]

There both easy to install, the M version takes maybe 3-5 minutes longer to cut off the alum delta ring assembly with a dremel tool. plus needle nose plyers to grab the delta spring.:) Jack

What is the lowest price for the SIR and where can I get them? I think all SIRs, regardless of model or version, cost the same, right?

Check EE for the best pricing. All the SIRS can be had for under $400. The carbine length slimline models are about $360 while the mid and full length models are closer to $400. You may even get lucky and find someone selling a used one for less.

What does EE stand for? :)
