WTB: Sig 556 flip up sight spring
« on: October 05, 2014, 10:23:25 AM »
So I picked up this 556 classic in a trade, it's an older model but works fine except the rear back up sight (the flip up) is missing the spring so it just kind of flops around.  I have tried loping off a couple of coils of some small springs laying around the bench but no luck. Anybody have one?

    Um call Sig.  They should have it readily available.  It's not a common part so you wouldn't be likely to find it via parts companies.

    Good to hear. Negative stories get far more attention then positive ones. Glad to hear good things about Sig.
