    Oh yea, when I was going through my academy training I got to fire a couple mags out of the full auto, short barrel version of the Sig556 SWAT. IT WAS AWESOME! For me though I was looking for something in the AR format. NOW I HAVE FOUND IT!!!!! What a great looking rifle!:-) And its a SIG!

    BuckeyeLCpl - planning on having a couple of optics "kits" (gonna take a long time to assemble them though)
    Kit 1 - Light Weight; iron sights, simple broomstick verticle fore grip.
    Kit 2 - CQB; verticle foregrip/light combo, green laser side mount, EOTech holo sight.
    Kit 3 - Precision Shooting; Bipod, US Optics 3-8 variable power scope.

    Yea, sounds expensive.... probably will be! :-) but man its gonna be fun!

    I wonder if Sig will offer the complete upper for sale, or just entire rifles.

    That was a very nice piece. Too bad that you made me realize that I might "need" it

    I have a SIG 556, but hadn't seen that one. Looks nice though.

    Wonder what the price is going to be? That wasn't listed.

    So it costs and weighs more than a quality DI AR AND it has proprietary parts? All while giving no real advantage? Sign me up!
