POTD: STGW57 aka SIG SG510

    The STGW57 was the standard issued rifle for the Swiss Military Service from 1957 to 1990. It is a select fire rifle chambered in the same cartridge as this rifles predecessor, the K31. The SIG SG510 was chambered in 7.62×51. Along with sharing the same cartridge as the K31, you will notice the STGW57 has a similar T-shaped charging handle on the right side of the receiver.

    Interestingly the STGW57 also had flip up iron sights.
