Sig 556 Pistol = NEEDS SBR LICENSE?
« on: April 24, 2009, 01:33:58 pm »
So I've been thinking about buying and converting a Sig 556 Pistol to an SBR.  Seems crazy needful to me!   :devillol

Saw Ogre's post today about it and had to post thoughts to the group.  First what stock would you use?  i'd like to think Ogres choice of the Magpul one is a good one the only issue is for an SBR I love the idea of the folding stock as well and not sure the mount will work correctly.  But the new folding/collapsing stock from Sig might be a great choice! 

The other question is sights.  Thoughts?

    I'm already a few steps ahead of you on this project as my Form 1 went "pending" earlier this month for my P556 SBR.  I'm going with a slightly cut down (on the threadedd side, about 1/2") commercial tube w/CTR stock.  I do have 2 SIG factory side folding stock assemblies in case I want to go that route.  The only thing that just bugs the crap out of me is that the hinge is very bulky and very "square"...not very elegant or very pleasing to the me at least.  I'm hoping to have my paperwork back in the next few weeks, so when that happens I'll be sure to post pics.
