    It's good to see a big name entity taking an interest ...

    Oh damn!...this is one of my favorite cartridges - I've been dreaming of a 556 in 6.5. This is excellent news, now I don't have to settle for an AR in 6.5. And to think I almost bought a lower last month to start a 6.5 build. Saved.

    Time to start putting away some cash for one of these beasts!!!! :mrgreen:

    I hope it goes well. There was a thread started by a member who is also a manufacturer and converted some 556s to 6.8 SPC. He did a limited run and stopped because of lack of demand. I hope that the 556R is just the start of SIGs, and others', venture into other calibers. I am personally hoping that the stars align and SIG produces a SIG SAPR (7.62 NATO) rather than keep glutting the market with AR-15s and AR-10s.

    And people say there's no aftermarket or caliber conversions for the 556

    I looked at the 6.8 556's (wouldn't it be a 568? ;-) ) I liked the idea of it but honestly the economy is a bit rough right now for custom toys like this and I kept hoping that a certain individual would change his mind on the 458 Socom 556's. I really want one.

    I tried to put the idea of just doing a heavy barrel 7.62x39 in their heads but they don't seem real interested ...

    Thats awesome! What I'd really like to see would be a 556 in the 6.8 SPC! Now THAT would be an awesome weapon!
