Looking seriously at getting a Sig 556 rifle. Sig Classic or patrol, piston system, uses standard AR magazines.

Has anyone been through a class with one?

Does anyone carry one on duty?

One of our guys had one for a short while.  It was the Swat version with the rail.  It was a very reliable weapon, but way too heavy for a 5.56 rifle.  It was very front heavy at that.  I don't know if the non-railed models would be better in that regard or not.  The consensus of myself and others that handled it was that it would be an acceptable size/weight if it were in 7.62, but it was just too much for the caliber it comes in when you compare to the AR platform.

ETA: We did demo the SBR version and it balanced just right.  I would have no problem with it.  Too bad we can't personally own SBR's in our state.

My son (2nd gen. LEO) bought one yesterday. We will have to see how it does.
