The Rimfire Report: SIG Sauer 522 Classic Overview

Hello and welcome back to another edition of The Rimfire Report! This ongoing series is all about the rimfire firearm world and its many types of guns, ammunition, shooting sports, and history! In this installment, we’ll take a look at a rimfire 550-series SIG rifle. The SIG Sauer 556 rifle was born from the iconic Swiss SG 550 series. The 556 quickly emerged as a testament to SIG Sauer’s commitment to precision engineering and firearm innovation. Introduced in the early 2000s, the 556 quickly gained recognition for its exceptional accuracy, reliability, and versatility. Its gas piston operating system set it apart from traditional direct-impingement designs, delivering smoother recoil and enhanced durability. In response to American market demand and evolving shooting preferences, SIG Sauer introduced the SIG Sauer 522 in 2009. This variant, chambered in .22LR, retained the 556’s renowned ergonomics and aesthetics while offering a more cost-effective and recreational shooting experience.
