I'd recommend the sig only because colt only requires a 5moa 10 shot group at the factory. When I bought a colt 6920 it shot 3.5 moa 3 shot groups.


For an ar-15 of that price look at s&w, I have had much better experiences with them. Also I have heard nothing but good about Daniel defence.

Zombie thread......

It isn't even Halloween yet...

The OP probably made a choice a while ago or has moved on to something else like model air planes or something.

Just sold my Colt Sp1 6100 carbine. I got tired of 1/12 ammo limitations, and the gun belongs with a collector. Bought a Sig 556 patrol for $935 w/free delivery. It's the complete package as far as I'm concerned for the $$$. Very accurate and will shoot the cheap ammo all day long at the outdoor range without a problem. Easy to field strip and clean, and folds nicely back into my small safe. This is the best 223/5.56 on the market for the money. Sig has really turned over a new leaf on CQ.

Strafer, I'm not much of a range report guy. Just head over to warriortalk dot com and they have a separate forum for the Sig 556 with plenty of info from many different posters. Most of the info is since CQ flip flopped in the last year or so. Don't buy a used one as they were crap and cost an arm and leg. Tech is like a SCAR without paying all the $$$.
