Saw this on the website and thought it was interesting. Didn't know Colombia ordered 800 Sig Rifles. Oddly, Switzerland is not on the list.

We are known by the "Company We Keep." SIG SAUER pistols are used to protect our President (USSS), our Skies (FAMS), our Coasts (USCG), The Pope (Papal Guard) and by prestigious Military organizations such as the US Air Force (M11), US Army (M11), SEALs (P226), Canadian Military and the British Military in Iraq.

Switzerland is not on the list because their rifles are produced by the original company. SIG-SAUER was a spinoff to capture the US market and get around the import regulations.

I know for a fact Malaysian, and also believe Indonesian, forces use the SIG551, for instance. Not on the list either.

Hmm, just noticed their claim is about pistols, not rifles. Not sure if my reply still holds then, but I think so.
