It’s a wonderful platform on which to build an SBR and you can build it cheaper than buying a ready-made 556 SBR from SIG. At, we focus on hunting rifles and shotguns , hunting ammunition and the associated optics and equipment . A P556 SBR has been a bucket list gun for me for a long time. The long stroke piston is also superior from an accuracy perspective to the short stroke piston design found on guns such as the HK 416 and SIG 516.

And what is it that makes Weihrauch products so popular? Also, if you are a reloader, the 556 beats the hell out of brass. Which elite fighting force in the world are you a member of? I am not having much luck. The Long stroke system only has one spring, for the combination bolt carrier/op rod. There’s minimal if any shock to the rifle when the piston is operating so the rearward travel of the bolt carrier is much smoother and the chance of throwing off the aim of the gun much less. When I looked at the SBR-as-home-defense problem, my impression was that the 7.62×39 or .300 Blackout would have been better choices. As parts heat up and expand at different rates, the slip-fit of the cylinder into the gas block also prevents adding flex forces to the barrel which would induce “stringing” of shot groups. With how masterful German design is I’m of the belief that it’s an intentional poke at the US market. Police and military forces will instead need to contact SIG Sauer directly to inquire about availability of select-fire SIG556xi variants. I almost had a heart attack when I saw that deal, but my wife said no.... (No knock on her, she's wonderful with letting me spend our money on gun stuff... Just wasn't my day), There are currently 2-3, 16" uppers on GunBroker (without BCGs... Way overpriced). In fact, the trust for a suppressor is exactly the same, if written correctly. I have read the Terms of Use, Privacy Policy, and Cookie Policy, and I hereby agree to those terms. Firing from the hip with the laser, I got an even tighter grouping on my head shots from 16 yards (the farthest I could still see the dot).

Realistically, I think BATFE has better things to do. Yeah…and we all know that the guns we buy are out of sheer necessity. VS Medien GmbH  Römerstrasse 58, 56130 Bad Ems, International contact to, The SIG556xi represents the latest generation of SIG Sauer's offer in the field of modern sporting rifles, military and law enforcement individual weaponry. Do you have or can you borrow a chronograph? I have really really wanted a Sig 556 SBR (with the original, non-collapsing folding stock) for the longest time.
The activation of the light on the Beamshot isn’t as good as the TLR-2, so I will likely switch back in the not too distant future. I have really really wanted a Sig 556 SBR (with the original, non-collapsing folding stock) for the longest time. Last time I went there, I remember their prices being pretty high.

I have new one not fired it yet 556 swat sbr and you got lucky in that price I paid almost double back when I bought it and I’ve had it for years still nib. Overall they are awesome guns and I really want one. Cost: $1,207 list, street price under $1,000. I haven't decided yet if I should.. Many of the components of the gas system are also made from stainless steel, providing an added margin of corrosion resistance. Is there any way to source the parts without getting lucky on gunbroker / armslist? An AK SBR becomes basically a .30 Carbine, once you lose the velocity by shortening the barrel. The new generation of tactical rifles from the Swiss-German SIG Sauer brand has been conceived for modularity and versatility: the SIG556xi is fully mission-configurable! I just hate waiting 4-6 months for the stamp for an sbr and suppressor.

I’ve wanted one since I bought my 556 classic. Buy a 556 model in any barrel length, and just buy the barrel for the 300blk when I get my stamp. The P556 is built on SIG Sauer’s well-respected SG 550 platform. Contrary to what I had been led to believe, recoil on this gun is rather manageable. We took a closer look at the sporty 9x19 pistol caliber carbine. While waiting for the SBR paperwork look into the URNAN-ERT sling for the P556.

My plan was to buy a second lower (which I did) and then get a P556 and SBR it.

Any SBR is illegal if the owner does not have a stamp. 2.) Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.

Like the SG550, the SIG556 utilizes a long-stroke, gas-piston method of operation, similar to that found on the AK series of rifles, where the bolt and piston rod all move as one complete unit. But the first time I went to the range with an “on the fence about guns” friend, it quickly became an invaluable tool for all the reasons you cite. Rather nice, in fact.

For the first time, we are able to get younger people excited about our topics again. The fire selector − dubbing as a simple safety switch on civilian-grade models − is also ambidextrous, while the cocking handle can be reversed to left-hand or right-hand operation.
Included in the box is SIG Sauer’s standard red dot. He’s learned a lot in a short period of time by throwing large amounts of money at the problem, but I’ve noticed from reading his articles over the past year, he doesn’t know quite as much as he thinks he does.
