    Next generation Sig MCX

    The Virtus was debuted in 2017 I believe which leaves us 3 years overdue for a replacement product given sig’s usual pace of replacing SKU’s. It appears that a next gen Sig MCX was teased on Instagram during a Sig suppressor shoot. No details were given but the rifle appears to have slimmer handguards that now have a threaded screw for retention on the shoulders like the SPEAR. The gas value also appears to be slightly different. There are also a few updates to to the upper with a few more venting holes cut on it and it appears that some angles are cut differently forward of the ejection port. The lower appears unchanged.

    Here is the video:
    “Gen 3” MCX

    I personally like the improvements including the lack of the large holes on the handguard to adjust the gas piston. Gonna need to get in line when they become open for orders. Please make them available in Black.

    I feel like the one feature that is missing on the MCX is lack of an ambidextrous bolt catch/bolt release. I hope sig decides to incorporate it eventually

    Agreed. I like the ambi bolt catch on the SPEAR NGSW-R. If it were to make it to the MCX I wouldn’t complain.

    I wouldn't mind the side charger on the SPEAR too.

    Hopefully it won’t share any compatibility with previous mcx models and Exeter will stop supporting the legacy models.

    It's written by and for gun guys. It's a great fun read.


    Reason I ask is there's an internet troll... That's actually a real troll.
