I always thought that was a slick little rifle. What do you think of the light/foregrip combo? I wasn't quite sold on it as a default with the SWAT. Congrats on your new baby!

very very nice, considered the Sig 556 but it was a little out of my price range even the base model.

pictures from Sig's website are nice, but promise you'll show us some images of yours when it comes in the mail?

I like those Sig's I'm sure they are fine 556 platforms! Though I haven't found enough eason to replace my M4gery with one...yet.

I was looking forward to having a FS2K Brother!

It's a great looking weapon- make sure you put up some pics of it's first shots. And don't load it up with too many gadgets...the rail system isn't a closet shelf!!!

Your pal,

Gotta ask.

For two grand, does the folding stock lock into place when folded?

Nice gun!

I amazed at how hard the 556's are to find now. I had to wait a week to get a permit to purchase in this state and they sold the 556 folder I was waiting to buy. I call a bunch of stores and only found one store that had any left- a SWAT non folder, a standard non folder, and the P556 pistol. I handled each of them, and the pistol really grabbed my interest. Practical, not really, but with some NFA paperwork and a folding stock, it should make a very nice SBR.

Price was decent considering all of the ban craze, $1525 out the door.

Nice rifle. Let us know how it does at the range. I know you just can't wait to shoot that bad boy.
