I purchased one of these rifles because I already own at least one of just about every other black rifle out there and 3 AR-15's. I wanted something that was a little different than the AR-15 platform that everyone seems to have no days. I hate AK47 rifles with every cell in my body as I spent 13 months staring down the muzzle of them way too many times.
So I took a chance and bought this Sig556 Classic SWAT. I figured since my Sig Sauer P220, P229 and 1911 are among the finest pistols I have ever fired, thier rifles must be awesome as well. I was not disappointed in the least. This rifle exceeded all my expectations. It is hands down one of the best assault rifles ever made. It is accurate, depedable, east to clean and work on, and very fun to shoot.
I own a HK 416 and a LWRC M6A2 which also have a gas piston operating system like the Sig556 Classic SWAT. This rifle can hold it's own against HK and LWRC all day long and twice on Sunday.
If that's not enough to convince you to pick up one of these beauties, consider the fact that they are half the price of those other piston rifles and they allow you to increase or dedrease the gas pressure depending on what your situation is. If your in combat and your rifle is full of gunk, sand and dirt. If it's full of water, If your firing supressed, Full Auto, whatever. This rifle keeps firing and asking for more punishment.
Impact Guns has a hell of a customer service department and great prices as well. They will send you this rifle in it's own heavy duty Sig Sauer made and stamped hard case. I would give it a 10 but it only allows me to give it a 5.
