wondering which is better, though i reckon d ar has way more variants and is more customisable.
But an ar and sig of similar prices? and can flashlights and lasers be added to d sig as easy as the ar?

I wouldn't know. In the "Land of the Free, Home of the Brave," we're not allowed to have the SIG 552, because it doesn't have any sporting purposes.

God Bless Texas

Tell me some more about the Sig,I have not seen one.

Doesn't the SIG use a gas piston design similar to the AK? I've heard that they are very reliable, but have no direct experience. Like many other fine weapons from around the world, it's too bad that they cannot be bought here in the US for their actual value, if at all.

www.remtek.com/arms/ has some good info as well. I think www.sigarms.com even has info on it.

-I think the Sig is cool as heck, but I personally would take a m4 over it if I had to stake my life on it. If I was choising between an AR (not an selectfire, real, preban m4) and the sig (a preban, as they are the only ones we can have here) and they cost the same, as opposed to the 18k+ price diffrence that in actuallity exist, I'd take the Sig. It's a lot cooler, and more unique, however I do not fell it would be more reliable or in any way distinctly better than an AR counterpart.

Are you from Ireland? I thought private firearms were banned there? Just wondering.

The Sig wins hands down!!! Better operating sistem (much like Kalashnikov), better materials, better magazine, better reliability with short barrels, same ergonomics. WAY more accuarate, the SIG-551's I've seen usually do 1MOA with ball ammo.
