Well since we have taken over this thread which was not my intent and I still want to know if any other Sig other than the MK25 has the naval anchor?
I did basic and AIT at Ft Benning, assigned to Ft Campbell were I also did some training there ( you should know the two schools offered there right?)
As far as your question, I dont know, I didn't spend a lot of time policing my brass, I can tell you its an open bolt, gas operated weapon, which unlike the m4 has a gas regulator than can be adjusted by hand to change the cyclic rate of fire. It is belt fed but will fire magazines as well but I never had good luck with those.
I also have not touched one of those in at least 10 years and before that it was when I went back to Benning for some specialized training and before that I think I was a PFC.
I'm sure we can go back and forth on what each of us knows or doesn't know or did or didn't do I'm not sure what that proves or doesn't prove. I can say I was very good at my job.......an expert if you will.....at least that what's on my DD-214
