I've had mine for about a 3 weeks and I couldn't be happier. A little front-heavy, but the smoothness of operation makes up for it several times over.
How are they like to shoot and also to maintain compared to AR-15s?
Disassembly isn't quite as quick and easy as an AR but its not bad. As most people point out it is a little front heavy and the mag that came with the gun is a POS so I ordered a bunch of Lancer clear mags to kind of keep with the the Sig rifle image, they should arrive any day now.
I think my biggest complaint about the overall design in comparison with the AR is the mag release. Its just a tad too far forward so its not as easy to reach as on an AR, although I suppose if you have longer fingers than I do it wouldn't be a problem.
I really like trigger on the 556, it's far better than the trigger that was on my Bushmaster AR. There also seems to be a lot less felt recoil in the 556 than there was in my AR.
Unfortunately I haven't had a chance to actually test out the rifle at any significant range so I can't comment on its accuracy yet. I was killing pumpkins at close range the first time I took the rifle out
Let's see some wear and tear!
Not Swedish but Swiss, the Stgw.90 a.k.a. SIG SG550
Put a Magpul PRS stock on it and it balances out really well.
Ah well. Nice pictures!
F stop of f/29
And a 30 second exposure!
Dam nice camera and gun!
Ill take both!
A month ago, last time I checked, they were selling locally for just under $1400.
Yeah my intention was to make them very dark. They were photographed in very low light with a long exposure and then worked over a little in Photoshop. If your monitor is calibrated correctly they should look fine. There should be very little shadow detail, the main focus is on the highlights.
needs a beauty mark!
Beautiful side folder, but it needs a beauty mark just to the rear or the ejection port, mine is scarred for life. Electrical tape can prevent or postpone the marks left by the shells pinging off the receiver... but why.
