Sorry about your 993, looks like the spare tirewell is definitely mangled a bit. :( You have a great collection, love the 552 and the Sako.

How do you like the Night Force? How is the clarity/transmission in low light conditions? That's the exact scope I have been drooling over to throw on my 556 for a compact scope good for dusk varmint hunting.


SigOhio, not to worry, I think she's repairable( no frame or drive train damage) did you get your semi 308 yet?

Sigohio, It's seems like a great piece of glass very clear and well made. The Illumination is great also you can turn it down when it starts getting towards evening. Turn it up to see very well in daylight if you need it for some reason. But I think if I were using it mostly for hunting coyotes, I would go with the 2.5-10x32 or something with alittle more x's. But it sits and balances very well on the sig for my purposes.

Unfortunately not yet, too many other places for the $$ to go right now. :(
I think the REPR is topping the list for the semi-auto, and if I leaned towards a 308 bolt gun for hunging the Tikka T3 Varmint in 20" is looking nice. Baby brother to the Sako. 8)

Sounds great, and I agree about the larger reticle. I didn't realize at first that you had the smaller one. Thanks!

What type of aimpoint is that?


Aimpoint CS. Swedish military issue- not commonly encountered commercially. Elevation is adjusted by a dial located underneath the ocular lens (sort of like the ELCAN).

FWIW, here's a pic with a C-Mag installed:

Am thinking seriously about getting one of Magpul's new stocks, as the A2 stock is entirely too long when wearing body armor.

Here is my SIG 556 SWAT with EOTech 512, 3X Magnifier, and Troy Industries rear BUIS. I took this picture right before I replaced the OEM front sight with a new Samson front sight. Second picture is the rest of the arsenal. :lol:

I love my SIG!

All I have to do is give it a nice paint job to be messed up with shooting! I finally got my Eotech from the conex back from Iraq. It started out a SIG Classic like the one above. Then I traded lowers, bought a CAA stock, Troy quad rails, guards, and sights. Fabricated a Surefire tailcap to a cheap pressure pad of of my old pellet pistol and mounted it. Along with the new charging handle and push button front take down pin. I have put a lot of money in this rifle. And now I don't have enough $ to buy more PMC .55gr for it!

SGT_Geardo nice rifle. How does that CAA stock feel? I am thinking of getting one instead of the CTR, and they are the only 2 stocks within my budget right now.

The CAA Stock is heavy but it's alright. plus I can stick four C123 batterys in it or my surefire. It's not that snug and has some movement in it, but not enough to make shooting no fun. I was thinking about gettin the CTR, I have heard it fits nicer.

Alright guys, Here it is...
Step one, SIG556 Classic... Couldn't find a picture of my own.
Image

Step two, got Troys battle rail...
Image

Step three, got Troys front and rear folding sights and traded lower with a friend...
Image


Step four, got the KNS take down pin and the Griffin Charging Handle...

Step five, my Eotch 511 finally arrives at the armory from Iraq w/ GG&G covers and my CAA Stock I used on my issed M4...
Image

Step six, modified a tail cap to one of my surefires for a cheap pressure pad and attatched it...
Image

Step seven, painted it. I used regular rattle can paint "camo" colors. It will rub and scrape of with use but that's the idea...
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
The other rifle is a Savage .17 HMR. My first gun. Amature paint job.

Tell me what you think! ...questions, comments, concerns?

That is the new stock from AGP Arms. If you google them you can get the specs. Highlights: the whole assembly takes 1/2 a lb. and 6.5 inches of overall length off (folded) compared to a M4 stock assembly fully collapsed. The LOP on a 556 is said to be around 12.48" (like an M4 stock 1/2 way extended?). An AGP stock is en route to me-review to come soon.

Picked up a Magpul ACS at the funshow this morning:

Extended, it is longer than the A2. Collapsed, it is perhaps three inches shorter.

New 556 Classic:
Leupold VX-III 1.75-7X w/ Warne medium height rings. I have no plans to alter it any further. I want a light, simple, scoped rifle. Here's hoping it's not a QC victim because I love the looks of it.

I've been looking at all the wonderful photos of the rifles in this thread, and I have to admit, it gave me many great ideas. But now, for me being partially disabled and not as limber as I used to be and also on a fixed income, I believe that I have a nice house rifle, which shoots and carries very well. Below are a couple of pictures of my Sig 556:

Here is mine. The upper, lower, gas block and front sight are refinished in Sig Gray Duracoat, the furniture is finished in OD Green Duracoat. It has a replacement folding stock from CGS, bayonet lug, PE57 flash hider, and its mounting a Millett DMS scope. For now I am using the popsicle backup sight but might change that eventually. Enjoy the pics!!!

Mad Dog 7.62,
That is one good look'in SIG 5.56, clean and simple. For a rear sight on mine, I made a custom base and mounted a rear sight from a Heckler & Koch 93 and made a shorter front sight. I could not see paying the high price for the SIG sight set.

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 Lüke 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.
