Our Assessment: After undergoing our very official wiggle test, you will be happy to hear that this is a rock solid AR build that isn’t just for show. This rifle is the civilian design of the SIG 551/552. Due to import restrictions, the American civilian market required a partially American-made version assembled by SIG Sauer’s New Hampshire location in the United States; thus, the SIG 556 was born. Considered a smidge front heavy thanks to its hefty handguard setup, it helps balance the rifle during operation and allows for maximum customization. If you are in the market for your first or fiftieth AR, look no further than SIG’s 556 rifle. This firearm offers the perfect amount of flexibility and versatility to fill your range days with fun and excitement or offer reliable home defense options. Bid it, win it, love it. Good luck!
