    Interesting gun.. I like the suppressed factors and barrel options but the best feature is the swappable bolt handle. I see they ripped off Vortex on the FS but it does look good

    I have to agree, that is a fairly bad a$$ rifle.

    My 556R has been GTG so far, just need an Eotech mini to finish it, and repair the folding stock catch (missing parts, it's a design flaw)

    Well, after all the caliber changes and poly to metal BS.......
    even before that I can buy an AR and a AK for the price of one gun,so the second can be my 300BK.

    No,you aren't going to carry all the caliber changes and extras in your backpack. 2 guns would still be lighter.

    Cool sh!t though,leave it to sig

    Yeah, you are not going to be switching from AR to AK in the field, especially not going to be picking up enemy mags of unknown quality with unknown ammo in them unless you are desparate.

    The weight and size of the extra lower to do so would be better spent on carrying extra mags with ammo rather than relying on ammo/mags dropped by someone else.

    That said, it is a very modular and versatile platform, I can certainly see how some special forces orgs would like this. I could also see where it would be nice in some SHTF scenarios, I just would not be carrying all the parts, etc. in the field.

    I do agree about switching stuff out with regards to cost and weight, but still, there would be some situations where it would be nice to have something like this.

    However, OTOH, the cost, the cost (the horror, the horror). ;-)

    If you capture an AK and are out of your other caliber, why not just use the AK

    I wonder if the changeover applies to my SIG556R I just got? Probably not though.

    Cuz you won't hit your target! Of course you probably won't firing 7.62x39 out of the Sig either. lol jk :laugh:

    I wonder if it will be over or under $3,000.
