I'm a slow learner. links would be great. I tried to search around but it was hard going through that much info spread so far out. Thanks in advance for any help.
here's what I got to work with:

I used an ACE folding setup. Go to riflestocks.com, they are ACE.

It is three parts; the tube stock, the folding mechanism and the adapter. I picked the flush mount one.

Yes that is everything that you would need, but you would not get the same result as I got. That setup has a castle nut, it would not be flush mount.

This part would get you the same result (flush mount)

I am in the process of getting ATF approval for my p556 to sbr. I heard about the engraving issue, and wanted to know how you did yours. I like the look of the pictures you posted of yours but wanted to know about the engraving. thanks for help.

What issues are you referring to in regards to the engraving?

What would you like to know about the engraving?


Also, if you wait a little longer, Aurora will be shipping more sights soon. :wink:

I wanted to know what is supposed to be engraved, name, address only? and where it can be engraved, on the upper. Also, do you have the upper engraved before you get the tax stamp back? or can you send it to be engraved before you get the tax stamp back?

Name, City, State. Or, if you are transferring on a TRUST, you can put your Trust name on it instead.

In a conspicuous place that is clearly visible.


Most people engrave their 556 on the left side above the serial number as this is the best location as it keeps the gun looking clean and streamlined.

However you can if you choose to, engrave it on the right side of the receiver in the same location as the serial number on the left side, or above where the SN# would be also on the right side, or at the rear of the receiver on either side.

That is probably the best place to engrave it on the right side and is easier for whoever will do the work.

I would wait until I got the stamp back from the ATF before having it engraved, or if you have it at an FFL they can engrave it and hold onto it until your stamp comes back.

I hope this is helpful. :)

yes, that is alot of help and thanks.

I do have another question. What about on the left side of the upper where my upper has the "pistol only" can I have that wording ground off the receiver?

As long as you never plan to have your 556 SBR taken off the NFA registry and put it back into a pistol.

Though I would suggest having a gunsmith fill in the wording instead of grinding it down as you might weaken the rigidity of the receiver since it's already engraved in.

Sorry for the late response.

Overall length for the factory 556SBR is 30.1", length of barrel 10", that is what is on my Form 1.

Does the Aurora front and rear site co-witness when using the Sig red dot? Thanks. Can the sites be found by a simple search on line?

One other thing, I see that your stock is folding to the left side of the weapon. How is this locking up to the frame like it would to the right side? I do not have a pistol yet, but will soon. Thanks.

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.
