My buddy got to play with the new Sig 55X rifle. I'm sure everyone already knows but it is the civillian version of the 551. He handled two models: The Commando version that has a four rail pictanny forearm and the basic model wich he did'nt say much about.

He was super excited about this rifle.

It takes AR mags also, I think?

How close to the real thing did it look?
BTW, How long is the barrel on a 551. Is it a 16"? Will the 556 be the same length?





Link Posted: 2/5/2006 12:28:04 PM EST
anyone know if the barrel is free floated? Doesnt look like it in fact the sight/gasblock looks just like a hk-91 to me
Link Posted: 2/5/2006 12:32:33 PM EST
If I didn't have a good used cars worth of money invested in AR's, I might be interested.

The only thing I find a bit off, is people who just recently saw Sigs offerings at an event at the Sig plant before the SHOT show supposedly had to sign confidentiality agreements.

"What we've got here is... failure to communicate."

Sig releasing a civy 55x series is a bad thing?
