    Personally, I'd love to have a 551. Seems to be one of the earliest gas-pistol rifles in .223. Apperently they can be converted to the shorter Sig-Sauer model 552 commercially for around $2,500, but I'm sure it would be cheaper to do it yourself.

    Hmmmmm a 551 like this?

    I had this one for awhile, but found it too nose heavy.
    They are good accurate rifles, very stable especially during rapid fire, and FA work. Easy to clean, as it's a piston system vs. a direct gas blow back (AR) style.

    I have since sold it. and prefer the AR platform better.......
