Interesting, even more interesting if this thing can be made CT legal. Since AK actioned rifles in 7.62x39 are banned here, I wonder if its close enough?

What makes you say that?

Here's a great question, how do YOU determine if a gun is overpriced? Hint.... whether or not it is overpriced depends on the market, not your individual bank account.

They should work on getting the 223 ones right before moving on to another caliber. :neener:

I hope they manage to get their QC to the point people aren't having to deal with canted rails on it .... for $1500!!
I like the 556. However, having a good serviceable WASR-10 I am not chafing the bit to get this new Sig.
OTOH I wish Sig Sauer luck with this endeaver.

Seems they could rename it the x39 or something instead of 556-762. I already have a $800 AKM had a $300 WASR. What more would I get from a $1600 7.62x39MM?????

If I could get it for $1K I'd be interested. I don't have anything in that caliber yet, and AKs don't interest me for some reason. It'd go well with my 556 SWAT.

vz-58 runs just over $1k from Czechpoint, and that's a well proven accurate reliable design. I wouldn't mind trying one of these SiGs out, but I can't justify the money they usually want for these high end rifles, not when I already have a vz-58. :)

As much as I hate saying this...

"Yeah, what Atblis said".

Fix the 556, kick your C/S department in the arse, THEN try to pull the wool over our collective eyes once again.
