I really like my sig 556 but it has a few problems. Just like someone already said there aren't many after market parts. Also it is very front heavy especially with the folding stock. Although it has worked well for me so far and I've had no problems.

As a newbie to the assault/defense rifle area I recently bought a new 556. I have only shot it twice so far but I love it. I will grant you I am a bit of a Sig fanboy though. I tend to not to buy things that everyone else has. Whether its a gun or other hobby/collection. So the lack of aftermarket did not influence my decision much. I plan on putting a few accessories on it but not overly so. Great choice as far as I am concerned.

The only Sig 5.56 that I've worked on was an assault rifle.

My bad I guess, I didn't realize they we're talking about select fire weapons.

Hobbit, it is a matter of negative connotations around the the qualifying adjective, assault. Much like 'sniper'.
If I make a forward advance on a fortified position with a broom handle, it could be considered an assault weapon. If you kill a hog with a AR, it is a hunting weapon. If you spent so much on it that you won't get it dirty, it is a collector weapon. Furthermore, if an AR is used to commit murder...it is a murder weapon. Blanket associations of firearms with any potentially nefarious suggestion of intended use has fallen out of conversational acceptance for most.
No biggie...
