Hello guys its Jon from DDLES again. We finally went into production of our SIG 556 Stock Adapter that allows an AR-15 stock to be mounted on a SIG 556 Classic. Based on SIG saying the 522 grip and stock are the same as on the 556 the stock adapter should also fit on the SIG 522.

The adapter allows mounting of AR-15 stocks like the UBR but will still fold to the side like the Classic stock. The SIG Stock Adapter can also be fixed in place and not allowed to fold with the insertion of a pin. This way the rifle can comply with some states laws banning collapsible and folding stocks.

Sweet! I will be ordering soon. One question though. Since the sights I have are taller, my cheek weld turned into a jaw weld. Does your stock adapter raise the buffer tube or is it in line with the factory sig stock height? Just wondering so I have to either find a stock that has an adjustable cheek or i can use the Magpul ACS like I wanted in the first place. Thanks!

The DDLES SIG Stock Adapter raises the top of the stock by about 0.4 inch for a regular AR-15 collapsible stock. Some stocks like the UBR would be higher still.

Are you still making these? I have been trying to call, but your voicemail is full, no matter what time of day that I call.

How about an update to the thread.

Wow.. very cool I like it but can you clarify if the shell extraction is hampered by the tube when folded. By looking at the pics it looks like it is getting in the way.

Thx.

The rifle with the stock folded still ejects the spent cartridges just fine.

I have the M4 style 556 and your set up is the only way I could see owning a Classic.

Is the stock free to swing when folded? Or does it clip on to a stud like the classic or spring loaded like FAL Para?

Cool! One last question.
Can a ASAP be installed on these?

Works well with a UBR, even clears the charging handle. I wouldn't fire it while folded though without testing first with some padding, it looks like brass might bounce off the UBR. Life or death, go for it, otherwise I wouldn't scar it up for no good reason.

My only complaint would be that the fit isn't rock solid at the moment. Apparently in some cases the release button from the Sig stock has too much space in it to create a snug lock for the adapter. There was a note in the box from DDLES saying that they will be sending replacement buttons to address the issue, but at the current moment the latch of the adapter has some play in it.

perhaps I'm missing the obvious, but I assume this piece works with a Commercial Spec buffer tube?

I couldn't say. The tube included with the UBR doesn't say whether it's commercial or mil-spec, nor is there a choice between the two on the Magpul site.

How do you take off the stock on a 556 classic swat. I really want to go with the Magpul "UBR™ COLLAPSIBLE STOCK". Will that work with the sig, sights lining up and all. One more thing will the "MIAD™ GRIP KIT – AR15/M16" by Magpul fit out rifles, it's not made specifically for the 556? I'm hoping to use Dark Earth on all the parts I change out, stock, grip, angled forward grip, Duracoat the picatinny rails on the swat and of course the Pmags.

And please post pictures, I like pictures, easier for my brain to understand and soothes the soul.
Thanks again everyone.

Your questions concern me slightly. Why would changing the stock affect how the sights line up? Exactly what are you doing to your rifle when trying to remove the stock? XD

To remove your Sig Classic folding stock all you need to do is tap out the hinge pin (circled in yellow). Be gentle. After it's about 1/3rd of the way out I pushed it the rest of the way. There is a small washer on the bottom side, make sure you don't lose it in the event you need it sometime in the future.

To remove the button that you push to fold and unfold the stock, tap out the pin circled in red. Go slow otherwise it might shoot halfway across the room when it pops out. It might be easier if you have someone press the button slightly while you do so.
Image

You can see the same pins here on the DDLES stock adapter. The green circle is for a pin that holds the folding hinge pin in place. Apparently there is no midpoint catch like the original Sig folder, so without a retaining pin (green) the hinge pin (yellow) can fall out when there is no tension on the stock.

It's just a bunch of newbie questions, and I'll try to be careful not to do harm to the rifle when I take the stock off. I have ordered the adapter and now just waiting for it to come in.

Thanks for the pics and instructions, really appreciate it.

It comes with a how-to sheet, but there are no photos so for the uninitiated it might be a little confusing. If you need clarification let me know.

I was more concerned with losing pieces while I was doing it than scratching anything. Scratches add character. ;)

Either way, the only part where physical damage is a real risk is when you put the pin in the stock adapter to hold the hinge pin in place. You have to hammer pretty hard to get it in there. They suggest you do it from inside where it folds closed, probably so if you scratch anything no one will see it anyway.

I have an update on the DDLES, I just spoke with Jon and he informed me that the adapter and release button may be ready for shipping as soon as next week. I did not realized until after I ordered the adapter and saw the receipt that he was local. So I called him to say that I could just come by and pick the adapter up and save on the shipping charge and that when he told me about the button. Oh, the sales tax was a give away that he was in state, phone number area code sealed it.

Thanks again Draxanoth for the insight, and you're right, scratches adds character to most things. An addition to the idiom "Cuts heals, bones mends and chick love scares. Not to mention scratches adds character" end quote. :lol:

We didn't go into details so I cannot say. I was calling about my order and he said I would more than likely be able to pick my order up locally mid week. He was holding off shipping until he had the release buttons complete.

I do not have any information as to international shipping.

I also do not know if the release button is an additional cost to the adapter.

FOR DDLES:

I just ordered one of these late last week from your company. Can you tell me if it will be shipped with the newer tighter fitting release button?

We put a "stop shipment" on stock adapters until this Wednesday. Previously stock adapters did not include the latch button, and the adapter required the use of the SIG factory latch button. Most of the time this worked great, but in a few cases using the SIG factory latch button would not provide the rock solid lock-up we wanted.

We recently decided to manufacture our own latch buttons and include them in a stock adapter kit. This allows us to have the perfect fit in every rifle. We are completing the latch buttons now and sending them to anodizing Tuesday. They should be done by Wednesday and we will be shipping the stock adapters again.

Just ordered one (I see they are listed as backordered, but am not in much of a hurry as my 556 is spending the holidays in New Hampshire)

My question is, how big a cheek riser I should be thinking about for a Magpul MOE to get a really good weld on AR height backup sights, and Eotech 'high' (557) optic?

Also, for a sanity check, it appears to me that any of my pile of AR single point sling mounts should work with this setup, and that the following are a list of components that I need...

DDLES adapter
Mil spec or commercial buffer tube
Mil spec or commercial buttstock (matching the tube, unless the buttstock adjusts outside of the buffer positions)
Sling mount (optional)
cheek riser (optional)
buffer tube lock ring

Thanks for any input, and Merry Christmas! :D

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.
