Sig 556 xi

I think there is a niche for this. I would get one if they made it in the round that the Chinese are currently using today.

Video is 5 years old. It never sold enough. SIG stopped making the 550/551/556 products (556 in this case refers to model no, not cal).

Why would you want it a cartridge that isn’t even available. Are you expecting a Chinese invasion?

Yes, I will not rule out a Chinese invasion. The way things things are going. They have been our enemy since the 50's.

Re: SIG Gas Piston - Pretty sure I heard that even HK is ditching gas piston on the 416 (or whatever the next model is), and going back to Stoner's original design (which isn't exactly direct impingement, but that's another thread, LOL). The AR is just flat out awesome - I just put about 500rds through one last weekend during a night vision course, with zero problems.

I'll have to agree with the AR being awesome. I put at least 1700 rds of Federal 55 grain BTHP through a Colt Commando (10.5 inch) last week both semi and full auto full: I had zero malfunctions. I didn't clean it, didn't even punch the bore just hit it with lube about every 500 rds. Flawless function. (cleaned the crap out of it over the weekend though)
