    Yes. For purpose of training on the cheap at close distance for close distance purpose while running the same manual of arms and firearm format.
    Same as how many folks will run .22 top ends (or revolvers) matched to their normal duty/carry firearm for same purpose.
    A .22LR can kill a person but to deem it as a first or even second choice for any manner of protection/defensive application ahead of anything else but pellets and BB guns would generally not be advisable.

    BTW other manufactures are developing same considering the scarcity and cost of ammo for LEO training purposes alone never mind that of civilians wanting to plink on the cheap.

    The ideal setup would be to have a Sig 522 to practice with & then a Sig 556 for showtime.

    I was tempted to get one when I had the money...now I dont. So its either get a training/bug handgun, or that. Im going with the training/bug gun. Still if you already have a 556, and have the money to get it I would in a heart beat.
    I know not what this "overkill" means.

    Since I already have my Sig556...this is next on my list. (Pre-oredered) Awesome trainer for lots less money. Beautiful too!

    Agreed on both points.

    Further for the coin I'd rather have a Savage which will be competition grade MOA accurate to which I could successfully hunt with as opposed to simply plink cans and practice CQC maneuvers on the cheap.

    I agree, I was about to pull the trigger on the GSG M5 but no way now! The Sig is the same price and a 30 round mag instead of 21

    I spoke with a distributor a few days ago who just met with their SIG rep. The SIG rep indicated they were still fine tuning the design and haven't begun production. I'm #39 on his waiting list, and hope he's wrong. If not, I wish companies would get all of their ducks in row before promoting their new products. Nothing worse than getting your customer base excited about a product you can't supply in a timely manner.
