Which one should I get first? Which AR would you recommend?

What do you want it for? What type of shooting do you do?

All around rifle really. Mostly will just go to the range, but I would like it to be home defense capable. I also want it to be very accurate, and reliable.

AR is more balanced... Sig is WAY front-heavy with a rail

Get both! Duh................

I've been looking and fondling the SIG556 for about 6 months at the funstores
but have yet to put the cash on the counter.
Very intrigued by the SIG but am having a hard time actually buying it.

I do adore my Rock River Arms @ $970.00

COLT 6920, then. I don't know jack about SIG's, though.

What is this ? Sig556.com ? AR all the way.


Armalite, Bushmaster Colt or DPMS . RRA if they can find one to sell you. You can build a nice from from some of the parts vendors like M1 sales etc.

I like the sig 556, but would rather have a quality AR direct impingement rifle if I could only have one.
Link Posted: 7/22/2008 4:48:35 PM EDT
How's the accuracy? can it match an AR? that looks pretty sexy

Thanks guys

Id go with an AR. If Sig ever dedided to stop making that rifle, you will be screwed if you ever need replacement parts.

Obviously with an AR, there is never a shortage of parts.

If I ever get a 556, this is exactly what I plan to do with it. Nice rifle.

AR parts and add ons are cheaper and more readily available.
