    Just fondled the new Sig 556 today. The one at my local shop was serial number 000024. Unbelieveably cool. The P-rails are all composite and rounded. Weighed nothing. Just wanted to know if anyone had shot one. At $1300 I wasn't about to get it to be the one to learn about it's shortcomings. Sure is perty though.

    Cslinger has one, and has posted several range reports, the most recent of which is HERE. Enjoy.

    I still would have bought it and saved it to sell later. With a serial number like that, you can't argue.

    Personally I found them to be very ugly from day one, when compared to the Sig 550 or 552 the 556 just doesn't have that coolness factor. I looked at one at a gunshow a few weeks ago, and wasn't any more impressed seeing it in person.

    However for $1300 its not a bad deal if you want something that is different in appearence from your typical AR or AK. With all low serial numbers like that I would have been tempted to buy it just for its potential value down the line. Still I wish Sig had put a little more thought into its design, if they had made it look more liike the 550 or 552 I think the demand would be much much higher.
