    Am I the only one that doesn't really care for them? Maybe they've changed the 556 since, but when they first came out they felt a little... I dunno, cheap I suppose. If I hadn't known it was made by SIG I'd have never guessed it. That and their initial forgetfulness regarding optics.

    Just for info's sake there is now a 556 forum set up at:

    SIG 556 :: Index

    I haven't read great things about the holo sight that comes with the "HOLO" model. The word cheap has been mentioned on the SIGForum.

    Blame it on Sixto - now that is a viable plan.

    We got those in there not super HOLO sights. those sights are the chinese knock offs for like 50 bucks.

    Yup! Either that or an AimPoint (M3, M4?)! But that's just me.

    I don't really care for them either. Out of the 8 we have sold 3 have went back to service, and 4 more of them have had issues that the end user did some tooling on. The "holo" sight is a cheap c-more type sight, haven't seen the scoped models yet, but even putting a great scope on this gun doesn't make the gun any better.
