Is it the end of the world?

Sig is making a 550 clone for the US Market,
Smith and Wesson making an AR-15,


If Glock introduces a polymer 1911, I'm bugging out...... :evil:

I had a guy in a local gun shop who was dead-set that Glock was going to introduce a 1911 at the SHOT show this year. I kinda gave him one of these...:scrutiny: , but anything's possible.

For one, it wouldn't bother me a whole lot. I kinda liked the idea of the Alchemy Arms Spectre, although the price was WAY out of line for what you got.

Every year, the manufacturers who have exhibits at the SHOT Show come out with some very interesting stuff. Sometimes, very innovative and provocative. I for one enjoy going to both the tactical side and the hunting side, since I enjoy both types.

I believe in another section of THR there is a thread about several THR members who want to get together for dinner during the SHOT Show. Hopefuly this year it will be where we can all hear each other during conversations.

Remember that not everything announced at the SHOT show actually makes it to the gun-monger near you. Sometimes, if enough orders are not generated from the announcement, the product is canned.

I'd rather see someone make an FNC clone (semi, of course) rather than an FAL clone. Market has enough FALs.

Maybe DSA will do it sometime soon.

Kimber, Charles Daly, IMI, & Wilson Combat.:neener: If Glock thinks they can make a run on it, good for them. It's a whole different crowd compared to what they're used to.

Shot Show is sort of what the "Primaries" are to politics.....vendors are feeling out the attendees (ie: voters) to see if their marketing ideas have a future....some make it, some don't.

Wouldn't mind having one of those myself. I have a special place in my heart for .44 spl.

"I'd rather see someone make an FNC clone (semi, of course) rather than an FAL clone."

I was looking at one today for $7500. It was just like you describe except it wasn't a clone and it wasn't semi.

So what is so special about the Sig550???

It is made in Europe, so it is better than anything American.

How 'bout Rohm of Germany making a high dollar 1911~?:uhoh: :eek: :scrutiny:

Actually if they sell them here they will have to make them here, so it won't be European anymore, it will be "New Hampshirian" or however you'd say that.....

Ah, one of the great gun board rumors. Wonder how that Glock carbine is coming along.

I happen to own 3 Glock carbines and they work great. I use it to kill all the grizzly bears, pumas, zombies and space aliens that I see in downtown Indianapolis:)

I'm certain that the ZIG 550 that I will soon own will work just as great. BTW, that Steyr AUG that I will soon have will be just as good.:D

Sig will be making a limited run of 550s for the American market. Don't know how much they'll run, though. Y'know, they make a 1911 and they own Mauser, so why not a Sig Luger? Hmmm....
