SIG556 to be chambered in 7.62x39mm: SIG762?

    Sig Sauer Guns have confirmation that the SIG556 (the civilian SIG550) will be made available chambered in 7.62x39mm and will be able to use standard AK-47 magazines.

    We just received a phone call from our contact at Sig and Sig Sauer is producing a SIG 556 chambered in 7.62×39. This new SIG556 will have a AK-47 bolt and it will support standard AK-47 magazines. Apparently these new models are in production and will be shipping from the factory in roughly four to six weeks.

    This is pretty nifty if you ask me.
