I went to my local gun shop and they showed me their order form for two Sig 556 rifles from the shot show, they had to order 20ea Sig firearms to accomplish this, and in turn they will take delivery of two of the first 1000ea Sig 556's, I partially paid for mine today, other than the magazine and the 5.56mm what other features do the Sig and AR15 have in common, delivery is expected in August, should be a great addition to the family.

Sweet man. Congrats. The 556 is going to be huge when it lands. Better to get one earlier and avoid 1 year waiting lists like the PS90

Personally I am torn between the XCR, LE1020 and 556. I will need to wait on the sidelines for the dust to settle



Talk to you local SIG dealer, and see if they will throw you a good customer bone.
I have always liked the Sig 55X family of weapons and I'm sure this will be a solid firearm, and yes right now I'm mot a FN Fan, I've heard bad reports back from the shot show about the we're FN,; and you need us attitude, and their buy $8K plus of our winchester crap and our crap FN 9mm pistols, and FN will give the DEALER 1ea black special edition PS90 sometime in the future.

Good Luck with your decision.

These are good times bro's, we are Jolly Black Rilfe Giants, let's have some fun.

Heard that as well from my dealer. However, he said that he would be putting both up for auction as they will command a premium since they will be available a full two months before the rifles are released to the public.

Bad news , na it's just new toys to play with, I'm sure the quality will be sound, Sig is a solid company, better than FN.

im sorry man, but the 556 is one hell of an ugly abortion. I could see the sg550..but the 556 is plane old fugly. To each his own. Im sure it'll be pretty nice considering sig makes it. Make sure you put thousands of rounds down range :) One think that i know kinda sux is that there isn't any after market following for these rifles. So i hope you like it



Link Posted: 2/18/2006 3:29:53 PM EDT
Ive decided to pass on the 556 and wait for the SCAR/ARM to be released...
Link Posted: 2/18/2006 6:50:54 PM EDT
They should have called it the Sig 360 LOL

Link Posted: 2/18/2006 7:00:41 PM EDT
Tapco thanks you.

No aftermarket following????

Lights, vertical foregrips, rear stocks, magazines, red dot scopes and regular scopes will work with the Sig 556 as they do the AR-15.

Vltor, Magpul, ACE, ACOG, Streamlight, Surefire, EOtech, Elcan

The only aftermarkets parts that would really be needed is a different pistol grip and better rear sight.-assuming the variant with the low rail vs the raised.

Personally i'd rather wait for the FN MK-16/17

Tapco, now that's a little funny I have to admit.

Hey, I already have a large Colt collection, I need something new to bitch about.

Winchester Defense, formally FN.

I've got two big SIG dealers near me thankfully, my only concern with the XCR, LE1020, and 556 is the headache factor when something doesnt work because something in the design was overlooked, which is why I wont be an early adopter. I'm not willing to eat the expense of getting them all, as appealing as that prospect is

I am holding out for the FS2000. I have several ARs and feel the need for something that is a significant leap forwards rather than just an incremental step.

Why is all this SIG bullshit getting posted in the AR tech section?

yeah really............get the fuck out of the AR forum........there is no comparison and who cares if it fires the same round....

If anything go to the AK forum or the sig room...
