This is the basic optics ready model slowly becoming its own version of the "Commando" model.  It needs a lower profile 'goose neck' carry handle mount, magpul trigger guard and a green grip.

What's with the AR carry handle?


It is the shizzle.  What of it?  Just kidding.  I saw another 556 with one and it looked great.  The way I have mine set up, it allows the Eotech to sit forward of the charging handle.  It looks unconventional but shoulders well and feels perfect.

When I spoke to Sig last week about parts availability, I was told there are 556's in FLAT DARK EARTH being sent to distributors in a few weeks.



Yes, that's what I said. FDE bitches!

Okay.  I put the CTR back on because I decided not to go ahead with the other project I had in mind which required the CTR.

Also new is the YHM Phantom suppressor mount.  ATF cashed the check 13 days ago. Hopefully in a few weeks I will be posting new pics of my Sig 556 wearing a YHM 7.62 Phantom.

Ok...what sights do you have on there?  Looks like a 551 front sight?  I want something other than the Samson front sight, a fixed sight, and a proper height fixed rear sight to go with it.

I pay her very well, heck she even sleeps with me!  She is also my wife, but it sounds better when you tell people you are sleeping with your secretary.

I am shocked on the color.  It looks so good in person, to me it makes the black look "plain."  It's even made me start changins some of my ARs to FDE.

yeah i feel the same way, for some reason FDE looks soo much better the black.

It's a LPA Tactical shotgun sight that, I had precisionsights.com install a small rifle aperature.It works great with the front Swiss 551 factory sight.

Grrrrrr, I had just swore no more SBRs for me in the future and now you gotta post pics of that pistol.

I'll do 1 more... then no more I swear.

Kind of off topic but what are my choices for front sights on my 556? I currently have an eotech 553 and dont like it so I think im going to go with irons. I know of these:

-Samson flip
-Sig OEM
-Aurora hood

Do any of the YHM front flip sights fit the 556? Also any standard ar15 BUIS will work for a rear sight correct?
