SIG SAUER 522 Commando

    JayG was the first person to publish a photo of the SIG SAUER 522 Commando, a soon-to-be-launch .22 LR rifle from SIG.

    The rifle features a carbine length barrel, faux suppressor, quad rails, “classic” stock and forend grip.

    UPDATE: I have just been informed that the final product (the above is a prototype) will not be sold with a foregrip or scope.

    JayG photographed the rifle during a tour of the Sig Sauer Academy in Epping, New Hampshire. Jay writes

    George gave us a brief history of the Academy, from the origins in the early 1990s to their guiding philosophy of SIG: Simple Is Good. He told us that one of the questions he heard the most was “What do you teach at the Academy?”, to which he invariably responds “Anything you can legally do.”
