Exclusive: SIG Sauer – Swiss Arms. 300 BLK, 7,62×39 and more…

    Below are four different rifles, in four calibers, from SIG Sauer – Swiss Arms, as presented at the IWA exhibition in Germany 2016. Of course, they had more rifles in their stand but let’s focus on the ones below and the news in particular.

    The SG 553 is also known as Stgw 04 and used in the Swiss Forces. It’s specially made for special units, paratroopers and the AAD 10 (The Army Reconnaissance Detachment.)

    At IWA they presented the 300 Blackout version, with a semi auto suppressor attached.

    IWA is a civilian exhibition, so there are no fully automatic firearms around.

    Below: SG 553-BK in 300 Blackout. As you can see on the receiver it says “Prototyp 1  300 Blackout“, serial number 0001. “16” is most likely because it was made in 2016.
