    Afraid I'm not gonna like the answer: SIG 556R

    I was wanting a 556R pretty bad, but I've heard a lot of negative things about quality on them. Anyone on here actually own or shot one? I have a SKS that takes AK mags allready, so I was hoping a 556R would be a perfect compainion for it. What do you all think?

    I think you'd get more out of your current weapons if you spent the money on a carbine class than on another rifle you don't need.

    The SIG is going to run you over $1,000 - for that money, you've got tuition, hotel, food, travel and ammo covered if you budget right.

    What's cooler:

    1 Having a SIG rifle.
    2 Being the guy who can run the SKS like he means it.

    I know what my choice is.

    I don't think quality is an issue with them, but it would not be my first choice in an AR.

    Great point, I've been thinking about taking a course or two.

    Do it. Other people talk about how cool their rifle is and how it's got this and that on it, and can hit X target Y yards away with Z level of accuracy...

    You get to know you can do it with your gun when it is dirty, you are cold/hot (the weather is never nice when training...EVER) and you are laying on uncomfortable ground hiding behind a blue barrel shooting at multiple targets from cover as you are on your knees, reloading as zen when the gun doesn't go bang...

    You can't imagine the rush it will give you when it's over and you realize you just did something that other people only talk about doing.
