    There are a couple of items we have been looking at, but right now with the requirement to keep current products in production we need to narrow it down to what is most wanted in the SIG 556 community. Please vote in the attached poll to help us figure out what to put as the priority for the next product

    I hate to say it, but the only thing I'm interested in right now is a QD replacement for rear sling attachment.

    ;)

    Alternative lightweight rail system, Preferably a modular type rail so you can attach rail sections wherever you like.

    Just to be clear, the only things we are looking at right now are the five items listed in the poll.

    How about a good sight system that does NOT use AR parts.

    Using an AR rear peep and AR front post allows the use of many aftermarket tritium and varied sight posts and peeps, and we can use some off the shelf parts that allow us to keep the cost reasonable.

    That is taking the easy way out. I'll pass on AR parts

    It kinda sucks that so far the majority has voted for a new gas valve as if everybody can own a suppressor...

    The gas valve isn't just for those with suppressors, its also for reloaders and people who have ever shot brass down someone elses collar at the range, which I am quite sure includes all of us.

    I don't know if I would consider 3 votes vs. 2 votes as "statistically relevant" so I wouldn't worry about it too much. ;)

    I am just trying to see if there is a strong preference for one product over another, i.e if 70% of people want a new handguard then that is where the time and machinery allotted for new SIG products will go first. That is not the only product that will get made (I suspect at some point all of them will become reality) it just helps us organize the order in which we bring them to market!

    That and the benefit of manual extraction will reduce the neck damage. Reloaders rejoice :D

    I am not going to vote for the handguard bc Troy and Somson alraedy have good quads. Any new project is most likely going to be CNC 6061 and I don't really want the feel of steel under my mits. I do like the integrated bi-pod concepts like those of Kel-Tec. I think the AR irons and the gas valve are good. A solid trigger would be better.

    Yeah I understand completely, I just really have my eyes set on a modular style rail system, I shoot reloaded brass too and never had any issues.
