... that's a SWISS ARMS SPAR 751...made in Switzerland...it will be imported into Canada...no U.S.though ... :(

...i believe that Sig Sauer ( U.S.) is going to offer an AR type "piston conversion" in 308...not a 55x type... :oops:

Yeah, YET ANOTHER AR-10. Good going SIg, way to think "outside the box". Buncha azzclowns. What's gonna happen when the day finally comes that the us army dumps the ARs and goes with something else. A lot of "me too" gun companies might be looking for a new line of work when all the mall ninjas decide they too are gonna dump their ARs for the latest whizz bang plastic wonder weapon.

I think I'll go beat my head by slamming a door on it for a while. Wishing Sig had a little more ballz to bring us little peons what we actually want, instead of what they think we want.

I dont think Swiss Arms really gives a crap. And Sig has nothing to do with it.

I hear Sig is just giving us a 7.62 conversion kit sometime down the road.

Is that carbon fiber?! Kinda ricerish in my opinion. Is it just me of does that receiver look milled? I still don't know why the 542 never caught on. To Lucky, if the gun violates U.S law then it obviously wouldn't happen. But.... some Canuk (:wink:) firearms are sometimes allowed into the U.S after a assload of paper work and I think 600-800$ fee (if I remember correctly). I had to edit my post, Lucky, if you were being sarcastic then don't make fun of me too bad. I just reread what you wrote :lol:.

Wow great idea Sig! Lets make another AR10 we don't have enough of those in this country. :roll:


Anyway thats a nice rifle, I'd buy one if they import/make them here. But I want exactly that rifle! No more of this AR crap, don't AR the stock and mags, I want a Swiss rifle, with Swiss stocks and Swiss mags!

Screw Sig if I wanted an AR10 I'd buy an LWRC.

I'm feeling that carbon fiber version - I bet that thing is super light, and it looks freakin' trick. A five pound or less assault/battle rifle -- oh, hell yeah!

I like the all-white version too - bet that color scheme is popular in the Swiss Alps (and Canada and elsewhere) in the wintertime.

I still think SIG will bring a SIG762 gas piston gun to market in the USA. They are making the 516 and 716 to lure AR buyers over to their brand, and I don't think they plan to stop there - I think it is a stop gap to capture market share until they can get their plans and plant in order to produce.

Remember, the SCAR 17S is about to land on the shelves at gun shops that are eligible FNH-USA dealers. SIG SAUER will be watching that market very carefully - if enough buyers are still waiting, they may gear up and make the SIG762 here in Exeter for U.S. market. Please, please!!!

You could probably sneak one across a border check point while the border guards are body cavity searching your Grand Ma.

Dude, your joking right? I bet you all the money that the health care bill is going to save :roll: that it is just carbon fiber sticker, not real carbon fiber. Now if they took that time to mold it etc and actually produce it, then I'm in just for the hell of it. But sticker c/f naaaaaaaa. That white one looks smooth as hell though, kinda like a storm trooper would be carrying it.

A US Sig "762" would go a long way in dousing my fire for the FNH Model 17. Instead of using the proprietary Swiss mags they could do what they did with the 556 - design the mag well to take a mag that's common in the US market. I'm thinking FAL metric mags. Or at the very least, M14/M1A mags.

Yea, I've never seen an elegant assault rifle, but I like the looks of that one. It's sorta of Beretta class vs. Winchester or white collar vs. blue collar.

SIG Sauer GmbH is the German representative of Switzerland-based manufacturing firm Swiss Arms AG, which was spun off from Schweizerische Industrie Gesellschaft (SIG) in 2000. SIG Sauer Inc was established in 1985 with the name SIGARMS (until October 2007) to import and distribute SIG firearms into the United States, although it now also has some manufacturing capabilities. Since 2000 it has been a separate entity. The origins of the original SIG company lies in the Swiss Wagon Factory created in 1853 by Friedrich Peyer im Hof, Heinrich Moser and Conrad Neher. After winning a competition put on by Switzerland's Federal Ministry of Defense, a contract to produce 30,000 muskets was awarded. They changed their name to Schweizerische Industrie Gesellschaft (SIG), German for "Swiss Industrial Company". In the 1970s, SIG began work on designing a handgun that would balance price with quality. Swiss law limits the ability of Swiss companies to manufacture arms and Swiss companies who wish to do this have to do so by using a foreign partner. In the case of SIG they chose the German firm of Sauer & Sohn. The SIG Sauer line of handguns began in 1975 with the SIG Sauer SIG P220. Prior to World War II, Sauer had been primarily a maker of shotguns and hunting rifles. During the war, they produced a handgun, the Sauer 38H, but afterwards had retreated from this market. With SIG as their partner/owner, Sauer returned to the business of manufacturing handguns. SIG also produced a machine gun, the MG 710 which was a general purpose machine gun chambered in 7.62x51mm NATO and based on the German MG42. It also used roller-delayed blowback as used in the CETME/G3/SIG 510 rifles and sometimes had a muzzle capable of launching rifle grenades. However, the MG 710 had a high price so the weapon was only exported to Bolivia.In 1985, SIGARMS Inc. was created as the American branch of SIG in Tysons Corner, Virginia to import the P220 and P230. In 1987 SIGARMS moved to Herndon, Virginia, and in 1990 moved to Exeter, New Hampshire to accommodate new manufacturing. SIGARMS, and its European sister companies, Sauer & Sohn, Blaser, Mauser Jagdwaffen GmbH and Swiss Arms were bought by Michael L√ľke and Thomas Ortmeier in October, 2000. On October 1, 2007 SIGARMS officially changed their name to SIG Sauer Inc. Today, SIG Sauer is the largest of the five companies and one of the largest firearms manufacturing entities in the world. It is also the fastest growing firearms maker in the United States, expanding its operations and increasing sales nearly 50% since 2005.[citation needed] SIG Sauer has recently tripled its work force and invested eighteen million dollars into state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities and equipment. According to SIG Sauer, one-third of U.S. police use SIG firearms. In the U.S. SIG Sauer also operates a firearms training school, the SIG Sauer Academy, in Epping, New Hampshire.Hunting is a sport which a human 'hunts' any living thing, but usually wildlife for food, recreation, or trade. In present-day use, the term refers to lawful hunting, as distinguished from poaching, which is the killing, trapping or capture of the hunted species contrary to applicable law. The species which are hunted are referred to as game, and are usually mammals and migratory or non-migratory gamebirds.A shooting sport is a competitive sport involving tests of proficiency (accuracy and speed) using various types of guns such as firearms and airguns (see archery for more information on shooting sports that make use of bows and arrows). Hunting is also a shooting sport, and indeed shooting live pigeons was an Olympic event (albeit only once, in 1900). The shooting sports are categorized by the type of firearm or target used.
