What? Pray & spray not gonna work?:D

I'm gonna remove to front sight plug to install a rail for a MBUS. Then maybe a small scope, Mueller APV or something. Then I might change the foreend to a rail, maybe not, just for a bipod. We'll see.

WeekendWarrior

1 mag, no sights at all. Cheapest way to go would be the MI front sight and any AR-15 rear BUI (such as a magpul MBUS or go really cheap with something like Leapers.

Gio I am all sorts of fired up about this rifle, you have no idea. I have always wanted a SIG, 10 day wait is killing me. Honestly, is the 10 wait necessary for rimfire? Or all guns for that matter? In a free state you can walk out same day with it!

They are far superior to GSGs I own both, accuracy is close but the 522 breaks down with no tools in under 1 minute, easy to clean just better build quality all around. I love it.

I have a GSG5 and I love it. I will admit that the factory stock set is crap and that the gun WAS NOT plug and play. It had some issues. So what. Sorted that stuff out. Still love it. With HK skinny forened and folding stock it rocks. Handled Sig 522, liked it, very nice. Prefer GSG5 because of the look, handling, heft.

Isn't your 10 day wait over yet?

I'll post a couple pics of mine on the 15th. Won't be nothing fancy, just bone stock with a red/green dot site for starters.

Yes, I have it in hand, I have pictures, but I am waiting on some final parts before posting pictures! I want to show it off in its fnal form, not semi completed...

I also have some pictures of range trip this weekend, will post that at the same time and quick review.

All I can say is the gun functioned flawlessly, put 250 rounds through it, and was shooting great groups at 50 yards with Blazer. I am very happy with the optics I put on it. As soon as I get that rail kit from Sig, I will get everything mounted. I am hoping I can do this tomorrow (Fingers crossed!)

I have been going through my parts pile looking for anything I am not using I can throw on there and will be good and functional for the rifle. I might even put a laser sight on it, who knows? Got an extra green laser I took off one of my ARs I could use. I didnt like it on my AR build cause of the weight, and the cheapness of the laser (its one of those $100 lasers) but it would be perfect for rimfire at close ranges on camping trips and what not.

Regarding ammo, midway has a fair amount of 22lr in stock, I ordered a couple thousand rounds and a midway softcase (the 35" one) which is on sale for I believe $30-35.

Sounds cool. Do they have bulk Federal or any other bulk packs of 22? Did you order your rails online from Sig directlly or from the dealer? I hate mail order a LOT for anything, so I'm hoping I can get them through the Sig dealer. Might be a few bucks more but I don't care.

I got so pissed (tired really) at not finding any 22 ammo I went to Walmart and got 6 boxes of .40 S&W. I don't even own a .40 but I'm buying one in the Morning. Will probally get a Sig P226 in two tone and usuing hogue rubber fingered grips. I'm also thinking of getting the GSG-5 pistol but I don't think you can buy 3 guns within 30 days??

I got the rails directly from SIG. After looking everywhere for them I couldnt find them in stock anywhere so I just sacked up and bought them. Sadly,Fedex tried to deliver them today when i was not home, so I called in and had them change delivery address to my work. So, I should get them tomorrow.

For 22lr, I placed an order with midway, got 4 500 rounds value packs of Armscor for about $23 each.

Got my Rail Kit today (they are plastic for any of you wondering), looks like they are made out of the same material as the Swiss style handguard, I will compare them better for you when I get home and mount them. They are contoured to hit the peaks and valleys of the handguard where they attach,serving as added rigidity against horizontal movement on the handguard.

Once I get them mounted tonight I will post some pics of my rifle as well as a shot of what it can do at 50 yards.

The rig is:

Sig 522
Sig 556 Rail kit for Swiss handguards (plastic)
Grip-Pod (steel reinforced legs)
AIM Green laser (had it lying around figured why not?)
Primary Arms 1-4x illuminated scope and mount
Magpul XTM rail panels
Hogue grip

I love this little plinker!

Tragically, I lost this gun in a boating accident yesterday...

Looks great! How are those Hogue slip on grips working? Do they stayy put pretty good?

I was wondering is it legal to have that vertical grip on the front or do you have to get the $200 stamp for that grip?

WeekendWarrior
01-08-2010, 3:35 PM
the evil features law does not apply to rimfire. Take a look at the GSG-5 pictures here to see what I mean ;)

The hogue grip was taken off my Remington 870's pistol grip, so it was kinda stretched out when i put it on, seems to be tightening up again nicely now. I really like the feel of it and it fits the contours of the Sig pistol grip really well.

01-11-2010, 7:48 PM
Is it possible to swap out the grips for some AR-15 grips?

WeekendWarrior
01-12-2010, 10:06 AM
Yes but the grip itself will require modification including dremmeling and drilling. I chose to just throw a slip on hogue grip onto mine and call it a day. That's the easy way to do it. There are a number of threads out there that document how to do this conversion though, apparently the Magpul MOE pistol grip is a great candidate.

Thanks, I would've done the same. Not the best with tools. What about the stock? How is it secured on there? Any way of changing out stocks?

I hope they release a "fish gill" fore end + collaps. stock at Shot. Not really feeling the look of the classic 556.

You can already do this another member did it and said he got the fish gill on a sig forum for like $20 and they are available often there. He posted pics of it somewhere in the rimfire section. The stock that comes with the rifle is a 3 position collapsible, folding stock.

I took mine shooting saturday. I only got to fire 100-150 rounds because I noticed my scope was loose and spining in the scope clamps. When I mounted the scope I forgot that I never tightend the 8 set screws (just snugged them a tiny bit) because I was playing around with where I wanted it mounted, so since I didn't have an allen wrench with me, the day with that gun was cut short.

I was using Remington 525 bulk pack. I only had 1 jam out of 100-150 rounds. The only mag I had was the gray mag that came with it. I didn't really pay close attention to it when I ejected the round but it may have just been a round that simply didn't fire, so I can't say it was the guns fault. Next time I will keep tabs on any jam issues I may come across in the future.

I have bought about 5,000 rounds of those rem bulk packs and found out my target pistol jams with it every single time but ran flawless with Winchester 333 packs. weird. I ran a couple mags of Winchester ammo through the Sig and went fine as well.

I would have to guess the accuracy must be pretty damn good on the gun. I didn't sight the red dot in or touch it at all and was hitting what I was aiming for with no problems. Some of those shots were probablly fired with the scope moving around a little as well.

I was having so much fun I didn't even pay attention to the trigegr pull weight. when shooting 10 rounds through it, it seems the the 10 round mags don't last as long as 10 rounds in my 10/22, probablly because pulling the trigger on it is much more fun.

I still need to post up a pic or two. I'll edit this and add pics.

Well here are some pics of my 522 that I just picked up on Thursday. The rifle came with the 10rd half body Black Dog Mags but I prefer the full body 10/26rd Black Dog Mags. I finally got my Vortex StrikeFire Red / Green Dot that I ordered for it. I went with the low mount which puts the scope down nice and low. Glass is nice an clear and the red and green dot are not bad. Haven't had a chance to get it out in bright sun light yet to evaluate how good the dots will show up since I've heard reports of others having trouble with this issue.

Today I picked up a universal Hogue slip on grip designed mostly for Glocks, that I was going to put on my GSG-5PK, I will be picking up in 9 days (waiting sucks).

Just for the hell of it, I tried it on my Sig 522. Now I need to go pick up another slip grip because it looks, fits and feels great on my 522.

02-06-2010, 10:19 PM
Hmm..can you guys check your flash suppressor. I picked up my 522 on Weds and it seems like I got one that has the fs welded on...

Are you in CA?

With my GSG-5PK the place that sells the PK's here in CA use red loctite, so that if you were to try to remove the stock flash hider, it would be a huge pain in the ***. The Sig measures about 26.5" with the stock folded over with the factory flash suppressor. If you're in CA and remove the flash suppressor, it will be under 26".

That's why it seems like it's welded on.

If you were dead set on removing it and it is just loctite keeping yours locked in place, you could probablly heat the loctite up really hot and maybe you could soften it up enough to remove it but you run the risk of screwing up the finish of either the suppressor, barral or more. Not to mention it would be under the CA law specs, unless maybe you were to then screw on a non functioning suppressor/silencer, so it stays over 26".

EDIT:

OMG you can't say @$$???

We have the same set-up. I got the Barska m16 electric sight on there as well. Haven't used the Sig yet though.

You had to switch the mounting hardware to the left hand side I see? I didn't realize until I mounted the sight that it gets in the way.

I'm pretty impressed with that optic. It's not as clear as the Bushnell, (let alone the real $900.00 ACOGs) but for $66.00 shipped, how can one go wrong?! It works well and seems to be holding its zero.

I figured that the mounting nuts on the base would be in the way of the charging handle, so I switched it over before I mounted it. It may look a little weird, but it's sturdy.

I'm pretty impressed with that optic. It's not as clear as the Bushnell, (let alone the real $900.00 ACOGs) but for $66.00 shipped, how can one go wrong?! It works well and seems to be holding its zero.

I actually got mine from Midway USA for $99. $66 is a great price bro.

Actually you were right, the mounting nuts do get in the way as I learned the hard way when I pulled the charging handle. Took a nice piece off the top of my thumb. In reality I like the way it looks now.

Sportsman's Guide lists them for $69.00 - but they're always out-of-stock. My friend is a "Club Member" and gets an additional discount; we ordered at the same time. It took about a month to finally get them, but it was worth the wait.

Just finished sighting in the Magpul MBUS... had a Barska 1x20 mini red-dot on there but like the irons (ok, so polymer / steel) on there better. The rail is King Arms (airsoft part), low profile rail covers and the vertical grip is Botach's KZ stubby (Totally quality part!)... I love this thing! Got about 350 rounds through it so far. The folding stock functions perfectly with the new front rail system - none of that jump on it to lock it open and pry bar to get it loose anymore. ;) Here's to replacing plastic with metal whenever possible!

Using this adapter from DDLES (http://www.shop.doublediamondsupply.com/AR-15-stock-adapter-for-SIG-556-Classic-DDSIGADTM401.htm).

What quad rail are you guys running?

Not sure the exact type, it comes standard with the SWAT version of the rifle.

Also finally got it in action. A lot of fun!

Good looking Sig 522s in here. I just picked mine up last week.

Does anyone have any suggestions on a longer and/or fatter flash suppressor? I know it needs to be threaded for 1/2x28, but I'd like to see some suggestions and/or pictures of them actually mounted on a Sig 522. For instance, anyone know which one Oldrice has on his 522 in post #58?

Thanks and I'm done using "and/or".

I've been running this thing like crazy and still not managed a single FTF or FTE. It's like the rifle is defying the laws of .22 ammunition... Sig may have some issues with QC (my gas block was canted), but my 522 and 556 both eat any ammunition I can find, indiscriminately.

AHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Feels so good to be around my fellow SIG snobs and not have to deal with those little dirty GSG scum.

So... I HAD a used ACOG on mine. Found it "preowned" on ebay a few years back. It was all scratched up but Trijicon contracts out a "refinishing tool" that is farmed out by the sharpie company. Looked brand new like it just came out of the case. It was fantasticly BORING to shoot. It was so easy and fun to shoot i had to change up to make it more challenging. I could hit 4" plates all day long at 100 yrds. Even the girlfriend could pick it up and hit them with no problem. Only problem with the ACOG is that it sits a little high and you cant get much of a cheek weld. Not really needed with this thing, but I like a good cheek weld.
http://i922.photobucket.com/albums/ad65/jamesrmat/522.jpg

THEN..... got a good deal on the new "REAL" stocks for it. Picked up a Zeiss Z-point a few years back on SALE for $400 and have not seen that deal since. Fits PERFECT on the 522.

I'm drooling here. Those are some nice looking 522. For the Bay Area owners, do you know any place that has them in stock that I can caress... I mean try out?

High Bridge Arms in San Francisco had one in stock last time I was there. Big 5 carries them also and puts them on sale from time-to-time. I wouldn't be surprised if they have a labor day sale.

no no no... you've got it all wrong. 16" perm'd is the way forward. Swiss stock. Feels just like a 551.

That looks good!! Did you chop and thread the barrel yourself?

My little mess. And yes, I'm living out of a hotel while I'm working at Pendleton. One day they might let me come back home...

Black Dog mags, Magpul 2ng Gen BUIS, Aimpoint PRO, Double Diamond stock adapter, Magpul CTR stock. Thinking about a Samson foreend, but kind of liking the way it is now.

She's a bit naked, but once christmas comes around she will get some accessories.

My first firearm purchase, and from what i see and read from people looks like I made a good choice, going to the range after work today. Glad to see so many with this rifle.

As a newbie, what would be a decent quality, easy on the wallet optic for this? (RDS/acog) I will post again once i get my accessories mounted

The front post is maxed out, but it shoots a nice grouping with buis. I had a cheaper pair on it at first, and they would not line up. The magpuls ended up working. If I were going to do it over again, I would have used the stock iron sights, and left it that way. Right now, my Aimpoint is on my LR-308, so i'm using a Tru-glo red dot. Works pretty good with it, but i might put a different red dot on it.
