Looking to buy the original handguards that the P556 came with.
Oh dang I didn’t know those were so hard to find, would you happen to know where I could possibly get any parts for the SIG P556 like the recoil spring or firing pin and spring and or the extractor and spring? Literally no place online seems to have them lolJust a heads-up that THOSE style of handguards are like hens teeth to find and you'll probably pay closer to $150-200 for them if you can find them. There are a few other options that are less expensive if you're trying to avoid the 4-pic railed handguards.
On AR15.com, someone sold a SIG 556 lot last week that included a couple handguards and you may be able to reach out to the buyer of it to convince him to sell you one - though it's not the exact style you pictured above.

Do you know the contact email for gun factory? I see they have some parts but I need to confirm with them if they’ll fit and work on the P556 and if they can even ship them to the USASIG 556 parts aren't made anymore, generally speaking. Some parts are interchangeable with SIG 550/551/553 parts depending upon what you are looking for. The gas system length in the 556 carbine with the short system is unique, so those will be harder to source.
You can check JDI... but the two best places to get SIG parts are:
Or buy from gunfactory and import what you need: Zivile Sturmgewehre Hauptseite
Gunfactory is in German, so you will need to use Google Translate for the page. It is legit, those who run it do speak english and you will get the parts you order - it'll just take time.
I think you mean GetewoodSupplyCo.com.gatewoodsupply.com had them last time I was on there.
You are right my mistake, after looking again it was the 551 hand guards that they have in stock right now. My apologiesI think you mean GetewoodSupplyCo.com.
However, Gatewood hasn't had those carbine handguards for many, many years. They have the SIG 556XI handguards, which are not compatible with a non XI version of the 556. They also have the longer-length handguards, but those aren't compatible with his rifle either.
