  • No word on price.

    Too much.

    ditto. and it’s ugly. the whole reason i’m not getting a SCAR, other than massive price gouging but i’d already decided not to when that came up, is that it’s only available in “flat dark earth.” how many of us are taking our weapons into the desert and need to be camo’d? what’s wrong with a classy black? and from what i hear (, those handguards are a little delicate.

    Breaking a plastic hand guard does suck but the rifle can still shoot without it. On the other hand it’s bad to be on the receiving end of a broken, warped, or melted plastic receiver. Might as well kill yourself when that happen. The last thing you want to hear from your enemies is “WTF”.

    Anyway I never understood why they put an AR stock on the Sig 556.

    “No word on price”

    I just checked Sig’s website. ==> Package MSRP – $3,499.00

    An acquaintance told me he saw one of these at a Dallas gunshow in the last 2 weeks. Had a price of $5000.00US on it; while standing there, someone came up and wrote a check for it along with a case of ammo for each.

    Seems a little extreme, even for the matching serial numbers.


  • martywd, thanks.

  • Rabbit, wow!

  • jdun1911

    After seeing the Youtube video. I can’t believe Sig is that cheap that they didn’t installed a heat shield on the plastic hand guard.

    to bad im just lerning to shoot

  • Sam

    I own an M&P AR and a Rock River. A friend let me shoot his 556 (black, of course), and I gotta say, yeah, they’re pricey but DANG! There is a difference.

    So from what you saw, the 226 was that much better than the AR?
