Default Sig sauer 556 classic swat

My thoughts on this product would be helpful. I can get one NIB for $1000 with change.

It is a good firearm as are most all Sigs. The only real drawback is it's inability to exchange parts like the AR platform. That's one thing that AR's are known for is the versatility. The Sig 556 is a stand alone gun.

I'm in the same boat iv been looking at the swat patrol in the ways it's not like and ar pro. very well made ak 2.0 if you want to call it eazy to maintain and not an ar con. A little more expensive no after market internal parts but the way its made no need to change what you have and little on the heavy side if you want something light and something you can dress up this gun is not for you

One of the reasons that I personally don't mind the proprietary factor of the sig 556 is because the build of the gun is already so far past that of your regular ar15, that you shouldn't have to replace any of the parts as it is. And I know that there is an adapter you can purchase to allow you to add an ar stock. But if your able to get it for $1000 right now, take it. And worst case scenario you can wait a month or so and sell it for $1200 because they can't be found anywhere...

I don't care for the design of the AR. I know that puts me in the minority, but I don't care. I grew up with the Garand and M-14. One reason I got my Mini-14 is because of the general similarity. I rebarreled the Mini to get accuracy.

I have a 556 Classic. I am happy with it. I play with sights, but haven't had to do anything else to it. I am glad it takes the ubiquitous AR mags though.

My SIG 556 has been utterly reliable but accuracy is not as good as my AR 15 platforms. 100 yard 5 shoot groups average 1.5"-2.0". I've tried 52, 53 and 69 grain SMK's as well as hornady 55 and 60 grain spire points. With 4895, 3031, Varget and W748 in half grain increments. The best group I ever shot was 1 moa with 52 grain SMK's and W 748. My AR's (Noveske, LMT, LWRC. SIG 516 and POF) all are sub moa shooters. I haven't shot my SIG 556 in a few years because of it's inferior accuracy.

That's odd, I wonder if the 556 dmr has better accuracy, due to the fact that it has a bbl. anyway I wonder if that's just with yours or if it's a wide spread problem.

If you SIG is a post 2010 manufacture you will probably have a better chance of getting one that has decent accuracy. Almost everyone i see at my gun club has about the same accuracy (or worse) as mine. But i don't know the production dates. I hear that the newer ones shoot better but I can't confirm that. When I was active on the sig556.com site there were many complaints on the lack of accuracy. But that was 2 years ago before Ullie passed away.
