    Optics for Sig SG 551

    I'm just wondering if the SG 551 rail (not the rail handguard) has enough space to mount an Eotech in conjunction with the AN/PVS-14? Here's a picture of the SG 550 with a rail and polymer handguard: http://swissarms2.ath.cx/index.php?id=30&L=1#

    If its possible for the SG 550 to mount both eotech and pvs-14 on the flat top rail, then I don't think it's really necessary to get a railed hand guard for the rifle.

    Don't go with the eotech, the charging handle is a knuckle buster, unless you want to run it really far back, like right in your face, or really forward, both of which are awkward as hell for me.....anyone wanna trade an aimpoint for an eotech??

    I know you can get an angled charging handle for the 556, and from what I understand those two firearms are somewhat compatible, though not equivalent.

    ergo's look indentical, Griffin has it under the heading 55X, I'd guess that they're interchangable; according to reviews it is a good fix if your set on the eotech.

    What model Eotech do you have that you want to get rid of?

    Would aimpoint compm4 have the same problems with the charging handle?

    Does the sig 551 flat top rail have enough space for both an aimpoint compm4 and a AN/PVS-14?

    dont know if this helps, but if you count the rail spaces, there are 16, vs 13 on an AR-A3 receiver.

    There are mounting solutions for the Aimpoint that will get the railspace occupied by the charging handle relatively free.
