Hello folks.

So it is 99.9999999% certain that AWB will die. I remember SIG Arms stating something regarding domestic production of SIG 55x rifles here in U.S if AWB is allowed to sunset?

Am I beating a dead horse? If so, what was the outcome?

Id like to know, I'd hold my AR money and put it towards one of them instead.

According to a thread I read not too long ago, SIG's US subsidiary wants to produce them. The higher ups in Switzerland however do not.

That'd be a LOT of expensive tooling to ship over here.

As it is, the (cop models) are produced in der Schweiz and imported here (cops don't have to abide by the import ban, *sigh*)

All they would have to do is make the rifles minus the US made parts, ship them over and make just the required # of parts here, not the whole rifle. Sig couldn't find someone to sub out the parts here to their specs?

S.O.

Would it only need 6 or 7 US parts to be legal?

Or didn't want to end up with a company like Century or Special Weapons doing the work...

They'd also need to release tooling for the other parts...

That's chump change compared to the cost of producing the whole rifle. So many of you guys have hard ons for a Sig rifle they would make it back in no time. They could charge half what they go for now and they would fly off shelves.
