SIG 556R 7.62x39mm

    The last time I wrote about the SIG 556R, the specs for the rifle had not been published.

    Capacity 30 rounds
    Finish Black

    Overall Length 36.1″
    Weight 7lbs (without mag)
    Other Features SIG Red-Dot

    The 30 round 7.62x39mm magazines cost $28 each. The website only shows a model with the red dot sight. A iron sight kit (Rotary Diopter Rear & Hooded Front Sight Set) costs $142.

    UPDATE: SIG tells me that regular AK-compatible magazines work with the 556R.
