MFI is taking orders for their version of the 552 hand guard ring. Here is a copy of the email sent.

Dear SIG 556 Owner:

You have received this e-mail per your request to be on the MFI SIG 556 Priority List.


If you no longer wish to receive any updates please e-mail me at: [email protected]

I have just finished the SIG 556/2 Pistol Replacement Hand Guard Retaining Ring prototypes. Pictured on the web site are a few quick shots so you can see that these actually work well, look great and stay true to the original SIG 552 retro look of the retaining ring.

http://www.mfiap.com/smallarms/sig556.htm#552hg



I have 4 extra available for sale. At the moment these are in the raw steel so they have not yet been bead blasted for SIG texture and Parkerized yet (to match closely to the SIG 556/2/1/0 Gas Blocks. So if you want them as is (to customize them to your specific project or completely finished the price will be the same.



Unfinished they are available NOW! First Come First Serve!



Completely finished ones will be available 10 days after we sell all 4.



Price is $105.00 per Retaining Ring. (Retaining Ring ONLY) This price includes shipping via UPS Ground.



551 Hand Guard is NOT included. You can buy hand guards on Gun Broker for $90.00 or less. We will provide complete installation instructs and how to cut down the standard 551 hand guard.



This offer is being made for 3 reasons:



a) To reward our loyal customers and offer them to be the first on the block to have them.



b) To recoup some of the development cost for this project.



c) To gauge the real interest in this project / product. If the response is over whelming 100+ interested customers we can do a short run of these in 40 days or less for about $65.00 per ring. Obviously the more buyers we have the cheaper these can be made.


Let me know if you need anything else.



Best Regards



Michael Frost CEO MFI

Just got an update from MFI. The original four retaining rings are sold. So far, only nine people have expressed an interest.

I thought there would be a mad rush to change out that fish gill hand guard.

I actually like the fishgill guard but may eventually get a quadrail guard like the SWAT. I don't like the 551 handguards but to each his own.

I detest those fishgill handguards. I bought a set of samson rails with the flange. I ain't too happy with those either. I want something slimmer and lighter.

One man's pleasure is another man's poison I guess.
