    Ha! That's funny right there!!
    I almost thought you lost your mind there, but it's Sig that needs to quit puffing and start passing....

    7.62x39mm is NOT a NATO cartridge. The 7.62 NATO(7.62x51) was pretty much developed for the NATO folks against cold war enemies...... Like the Russian 7.62x39.

    I also saw this recently and have been scouring the web for more information. It is an exciting development. I for one like the looks and specs of the 550/556 platform and this only makes me more interested. I wish SIG would put out the MSRP and ETA for the various components. How much are these non-serialized lowers going to cost? How much will replacement barrels go for? And when can we expect the rifles and parts to actually hit the market?

    Carbon Fiber is interesting. The SIG556 is an awesome gun but it is heavy. Anything that makes it lighter would be an improvement.

    Yeah, I just cut and pasted. I didn't even notice that! Maybe Sig's marketing is in Denver? ;)

    Sounds like a concept car to me, and why would spec ops like 7.62x39? No footprint! But I highly doubt this will happen for anything that even remotely is reasonable in cost. Not possible.

    I guess it depends on what you would call 'reasonable cost.' The MSRP for the 7.62x39 version is $1,599.00.

    I see that, and not too bad, kinda looks like swat, but costs involved for making it modular?
