Home Rifles New SIG SAUER 551-A1 Lower: Swiss Miss? Rifles New SIG SAUER 551-A1 Lower: Swiss Miss? By Robert Farago - November 12, 2011 6 Facebook Twitter Pinterest WhatsApp Email ◀Previous Post Next Post▶ Actually, I reckon the Swiss style lower with folding stock and mag will be a hit with existing SIG556 rifle owners, but where’s the headline in that? ◀Previous Post Next Post▶ RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR FN Announces Three New FN 15 DMR3 Rifles The Long, Convoluted, Unfinished Saga of Heckler & Koch’s Modular HK433 Rifle SIG SAUER Adds a PRS Model of Their CROSS Bolt Action Rifle 6 COMMENTS Stupid ? here but what does this do to your sig556 Reply Why sell the lower by itself at all? It’s not as though there’s a huge market of custom Sig uppers to chooze from. Reply I feel like this announcement should have been paired with another one about a new line of sig55x uppers in a bunch of calibers. Otherwise the only market for this is people who own a 556 already and would prefer the authentic controls and the use of swiss magazines. Reply $85 mags? No thanks. Reply My “Best of 2010” Shotgun News had as one of its “Best of 2010” an article about the first and only semi-auto replica Sturmgewehr 44. The Franklin Mint author warns that there will only be 200 produced ever! It fires an obscure and expensive cartridge from rare and expensive magazines, and can be yours for the low-low price of only $4995. There is no accounting for taste. Reply FYI for those of you who don’t know, the upper is the registered part of a Sig rifle. Reply LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Please enter your comment!
