Swiss Firepower: The SIG AMT (STG57)

The Swiss are known for producing some of the world’s finest firearms, and the STG57 is no exception. The rifle served from 1957 until 1990 when it was officially replaced by the SIG 550 series, but today they are treasured by their owners in Europe and a few that trickled into the USA and elsewhere.
We take a rare look today at one variant designed for export known as the SIG AMT (American Match Target).

Thanks to our awesome sponsors Ventura Munitions and Grizzly Targets!

    I'd love one....but would have to chop that barrel down some if possible. I actually have 4 kits in the closet...waiting for when the kids go off to college and i have the time to build them out.

    Thanks for the very enjoyable and informative video. It did a good job of conveying the shooter's perspective.

    I have the much more readily available bolt action K31 that preceded the STG57, and it's a great gun for its time as well - very accurate, and it has a lot of character.
