Sig Sauer bringing 551 to the USA
For all those who were waiting, Sig Sauer is going to be finally making the 551 in the United States. The new US Sig 551 will be chambered in 5.56, has a solid billet lower, comes with a Swiss folding stock and will include a 20 round and 30 round translucent Swiss magazine. It looks like an exact replica of their Swiss made 551 with the same finish and rotary sighting system. No word on pricing yet, but expect it to be a little bit more than their Sig 556 rifles which are around the $1,100-$1,300 depending on the model. The Sig 551 should be hitting the shelves here in about 2 weeks.
