Sig 556 Ships

Sig has begun shipping the 556 a reverse of the previous trend encouraged by our government to not sell current technology assault weapons to citizens.


At $1300 this is a very attractive pricepoint only a few hundred dollars more than good quality AR series rifles.

Now where are the competitors?

HK 416

That HK is speaking of uppers available to be mated to current model AR series lowers is very attractive.

FN SCAR



More competition is always welcome as it improves products coming to market and provides price advantages to the public.

Such tough decisions.
Perhaps I should get one of each, just to make sure I'm not disappointed.

I am accepting all donations.... ;)

I have been looking for the HK 416 uppers but have been unable to find them for sale.

Sigh.

Until the HK gas piston uppers or another company markets a viable alternative are available the AR series will have to stay on the acquisition back burner for me.
