What is the best FOLDING stock for the Sig 556 SBR? I am getting one and want to put the best combat folding stock on it. I am thinking Magpul. Not sure which one or if Magpul is best. Who makes the best stocks for ar's?

Well Magpul does make the best stocks for AR's (i am an AR guy), so i imagine since the stock itself doesn't change, just the weapon, Magpul would be one of the best choices for the 556 unless you prefer the SIG side folder....im a noob with the 556 but i heard the ACE side folder with Magpul CTR is a nice setup (folds to left or right depending on how its set up on your weapon---so you can fire it if need be with the stock folded to the left)...i am in your boat too and don't know what stock to go with yet...i may wait til DDLES releases their adapter for the stocks and get a magpul acs....i WANT a folder, but i dont think i NEED it....

Use the ace AR folding mech with a flush plug mount and a UBR magpul stock. Very nice set up, but not cheap! Mine is great and even adapted it to my Arsenal AK.

I have the Ace folder as well, only with the SOCOM stock. I modified it by grinding the sling attachment point off the top of the stock, so that it doesn't obscure the ejection port, allowing it to be fired while folded.

How about these 2. Really like the one that holds extra batteries... Will it look ok since its not a compact stock?

I very much prefer the ACE folding stock. It is less bulky than all the other stocks, and the folding mechanism is absolutely rigid - both when open and folded.

Not the cheapest route, but I took a clasic lower off another rifle and got an original style swiss 551 folding stock.

...IMO that is the only way to go with a SBR...although ithe Sig Classic stock would have satisfied me...i suppose the Swiss stock will do... :P

AGP Arms also has a folder for the 556 which is the lightest folding stock unit you can get for a 556. On top of that is is absolutely rock solid when extended. It was the first stock I'd tried on any 556 that felt like a solid A2 type of stock. The whole gun feels like one piece of material now.

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.
