I would pony up up to 2k for one if it was original styled. They have the machinery already,as they built a semi auto version before so it can't be too hard to ship it over here and build them in the good ol USA

WHY WHY TELL ME WHY

i'm sure that aftermarket parts will be available to make it look EXACTLY like a "real" sig 55x

For some reason, they think the new one is more appealing to the American market...
Link Posted: 2/10/2006 6:49:40 PM EDT
because they are trying to compete with the AR, therefore they think that they have to have some similar features.

They looked at TAPCO and cheaper than dirt and figured thats what we want
maybe it is as those guys sure sell alot of shit

I really don't understand what the big deal is. It is just a stock, I am sure that once it becomes time to mass produce they will be making the sidefolders as well.

...but the more I've thought about i;, the "guts" of the rifle are pure SIG and that means quality, reliabiality and everything else that is SIG. The availabilty of a side folder, different funiture, etc. will defenitely happen and changing this stuff will be a breeze.

However, I still feel your pain.

Whats the rifle look like now?
Link Posted: 2/10/2006 6:55:04 PM EDT
Because every since the ban sunsetted on our guns, we have gone out put on car stocks and talked about how damned cool they were, and they were a nesseccity for "urban commando operations"

So as soon as a company decides to give us what we all said we wanted........it became so last year. So now only folders will quench our desire for the perfect weapon. The problem is if it had a folder...........most of the whiners would be screaming for an adjustable stock


OK I'm drunk so I cant write so bye

They are not going to bother with making a US folding stock and other parts.

Blame the BATFE, not SIG.

because gun dorks starded putting m-4 stocks on pump shotguns... the world has gone to turds

Check the other posts. Sigarms reps said it would take the folder, original handguards, and could be purchased without the raised sight rail.

You forgot M-4 stocks on 10/22s AKs and Shotguns and even NEA break-open shotguns

And every rifle has to have tons of rails for rail accessory bling-bling.

To be fair, every rifle you see in photos in the sand box have tons of gear strapped on.

Because if they did, people would be complaing that it looks just like a 55x series and start speculating if ACE would be making a collapsible M4 stock for it.

no sale for me after the pics i have seen.

Am definitely getting an FS2000 but will have to wait to see if SigArms makes changes/offers alternatives before I buy from them.
BTW be careful how you post on the SigForum. They're banning guys left and right over there

What if it had a Magpul UBR? Someone did a photo shop with a Low Rail and the UBR I thought it looked pretty good. Fron what I have read you will be able to change the rail height. Do away with they SCIFI handguard and it will look pretty good.
