    Stgw 90 (SIG 550-1)

    Iíve had a Swiss Stgw 57 (SIG 510) for some years now, so it was only logical that I also get the successor, the Stgw 90 or SIG 550-1. Plenty of those milsurp rifles available here in Switzerland









    The device for shooting semi auto only when youíre in the army, the white dot must be visible when you go to the range



    Full auto position (however the trigger innards for FA are removed when the rifle is handed over to the retiring soldier)





    I believe it was made in 1992









    Sights front







    Rear, for 100, 200, 300 and 400 meters or 300 meters with 6 oíclock hold

    I took it to the indoor range to test fire it for function and first sighting in, at 50 meters rested









    Standing is a lot tougher, this thing is no lightweight





    The rifle functions great, both with Swiss GP90 ammo (62 gr) and cheap GGG 55 gr

    Then I installed an adjustable iris (06-2.2 mm)



    An adjustable bipod



    And I bought the Stgw 90 edition Swiss knife



    Ready for some 300 meters action at the military range

    Damn , I think these are the most realistic, well made, assault rifles in the world.
    Wish we could have them, but realistically that will never happen.

    It's hard to be a ACLU hating, philosophically Libertarian, socially liberal, fiscally conservative, scientifically grounded, agnostic, porn admiring gun owner who believes in self determination.

    Very nice! I have always liked the Sig 55x rifles.

    Very nice thread.

    A stupid question about Swiss gun ranges and service long arms. In all of the pictures I have seen, everyone is shooting from prone. Can you also shoot offhand as well?

    I remember handling a Sig 550 in the early 1990s at a gun show. I think it was either $8k or $9k. I remember at the time thinking that I would have to sell every gun I owned to be able to afford it, and except for the loss of a few handguns to CCW, I thought it would be worth it.

    You will have to forgive me, I don't follow the Sig rifle scene.

    I wish that these rifles were built in the U.S. with Swiss quality and standards.

    I believe in peace, love and extremely violent weapons systems... just in case that whole peace-and-love thing doesn't work out.

    PE90 and a 551 SWAT. The rails are B&T rails and removeable.

    Began life as a 556 receiver with some 550 stuff cobbled on to it. The difference between Swiss SAN and SIG USA is pretty much the difference between Colt and Olympic Arms. The US SIG 556 is probably one of the greatest disappointments of the last 20 years. The ACR got closer to the Masada rifle.
