He's a lucky man,
The Sig is gas piston right?
Can you adjust the amount of gas to keep it from dinging the brass?

I believe you can, but I'm leaving all that up to him. He finally has a gun that he feels is truly "his."
I do like the system better than the AR; the AR blasts the gas right into my face and tends to make me gag.

The 556 is a sweet shooting gun. I'm sure he's going to enjoy it for a long time.

Now that IS sweet! I like the looks of those rifles a lot! Ditto on the adjustable gas system........gotta save that brass!

It's a great gun, I got one a couple months ago. Got the basic model and have swapped out the quad rail fore stock with a set from a 551, then I mounted an Aimpoint M4 on the rail. Might have to get around to getting some pictures.

I saw something on another site about the dinging of the brass being a (military) design feature to keep someone from being able to recover and reuse it. Needless to say, can't vouch for the truth to that statement.

Dang it...now I need to get one.
The dinged brass doesnt really hurt anything. They'll blow out once you shoot them if you reload.

Incredibly nice firearm Betty....I mean Will.
Your husbands ability to choose a fine firearm is surpassed only by the ability he displayed in selecting the ideal life partner.
