    Re: 556 SBR

    Thanks, All.

    Mickey-I liked the Levang but after shooting my 556 SBR + Levang back to back with a FN SCAR + PWS FSC556, I had to make a change. My rifle was way too jumpy compared to the SCAR. Plus there was a big difference in recoil also. So I just traded to the SCAR's muzzle brake. Report to follow.

    Chris-do you mean the Griffin charging handle? Yes, it has a favorable angle compared to the stock unit.

    Yeah, the PWS really is nice. I think as nice to shoot as an Ops Inc, but the little bit of flash retardation makes it better for this type of rifle.

    Thanks for the update. It look really nice. Kind of reminds me of the HK53s we used for close protection duties.

    If you can double up on hearing protection, these PWS fsc-556s are hard to beat for reduction of muzzle hop and speed of follow up shots. Changed the whole feel of this SBR.

    For some reason the pics above came out looking brownish rather than OD green.* This is closer to the actual color...

    The Sig is a sweet looking rifle. What I don't get is why I hear jokes like https://xcrforum.com/index.php?topic=7163.0
    I haven't looked into what the problems were but I find it difficult to believe that for how beautiful their pistols are that they'd have problems translating into a rifle. I mean it's not like making something completely different like a watch; it's still a firearm.

    Thanks. I think some people are incredibly anti-556 even though it is fundamentally a fantastic platform. Some of Sig's furniture and accessory choices have been suspect but it doesn't deserve the response it gets from some folks. I've owned about 25+ ARs, AKs (basic on up to 3 of Krebs excellent KTRs) and numerous other long guns / carbines over the last few years. The best 5 of those were my 556s. I judge a gun on reliability and robustness of the operating system over all else.
