The Sig 556 Swat, niiice gun :D and at a great price too. I myself prefer the LWRC though.

AR..the Sigs don't look aesthetically pleasing to me.

You can build an AR-15 that is better than any sig for a cheaper than what the sig 556 runs for.

I have both.... I like my AR better. It is lighter and more reliable

Why not get the SIG AR-15?

The Sig AR looks pretty legitament.

I have both. I like my AR more because I put it together with the parts I wanted. The guys I've gone shooting with prefer the AR15 as well. The girls I've taken shooting all liked the sig more. This is all anecdotal of course. What I'm trying to say is get both...

The Sig AR looks pretty legitament.

It also comes with that mini red dot in the photo which is a nice touch.

Like others, I have both.....and like both equally. But if you're looking for the best of both worlds, buy a SIG516

I have had both, and although the sig is nice I still prefer my ARs.

The Sig AR looks pretty legitament.

Why? because it has some magpul gear and a cheap POS red dot? Or maybe because its piston driven? Or maybe the lack of front/rear sights? just trying to follow the logic...

Your last thread was locked for a reason.

I have both. I feel the Sig seems more reliable and durable. The AR is more accurate and lighter. I play with the AR more because there are so many after market parts for it to play with.

ar ftw..

have fired the sig556, and personally i do not like it.. imho the ar is a better system with better ergonomics.. with more parts available to make it your own.. ie tailored to you..

The SIG 556 seems to be a far more reliable system.
