yes. kinda, i had to reconfigure mine to make it more bearable. i.e. no flashlight, only ladder rails basically. move the grip pod (which weighs a lot) faaar back as possible. figure i'd leave the grip pod on because i'm more likely to need to use it on this gun than any other hahaha.

While they are heavier in the front......most gas piston rifles are.....

It isn't really determental to the rifles usage......

It's heavier than a AR but not like M1A or FAL heavy.....

Swap out the front handguards for the 551 handguards. Problem solved.

Or I'll give you $100 more than Marcelo offered for it...:D

Agreed - I too thought the Sig was heavy at first but when I switched out the gawdawful "tri-rail" Sig Handguards for Sig 551 handguards, it totally changed the balance to where I don't feel the extra weight anymore. And, compared to an AR, I don't have to listen to that ridiculous SPROOOINNNG next to my ear everytime it cycles....

Like its been said, change out the front handguards, and its more balanced. I hear if pop a UBR on it, its perfect...

I was going to pick up a 556 but just spent my xmas $ on a POF P9X GPU!
Seems a bit lighter and feels like I'm home!

I don't have one, but I kinda like the beefy feel of the 556. I haven't shot my latest AR build, and now I'm having strange thoughts...
