The SIG 556 has recently begun to appear on the airsoft market and is already causing quite a stir. Being compatible with many accessories and magazines made for the M4 series rifles the SIG 556 offers shooters a brand new model with the options list of an M4. This version of the sleek assault rifle is distributed by Cybergun and is officially licensed by SIG SAUER.

Solidly built with a full metal barrel, receiver and buffer tube the SIG 556 weighs in at a hefty 8 lbs. The handguards, pistol grip and stock are made out of high quality reinforced composite which both look and feel exceptionally sturdy. Its collapsible stock is very much like an M4s and is adjustable to four different locking positions. The stock also features a soft rubber butt pad and a sealed internal compartment which can house 2 spare CR123A, AA or AAA batteries for your accessories.

The metal receiver of the SIG 556 is finished in non-reflective matte black and features laser etched trademarks in fine detail. Its front sight is hooded and features a short range flip up sight post. The rear flip up peep sight is adjustable for elevation and will fold down flush into the weaver mounting deck along the top of the receiver. Other features include ambidextrous selector switches and accessory rails on either side and underneath of the handguard.

Internally the SIG 556 has a metal Version 3 gearbox which has been outfitted with such upgrades as steel gears and metal bushings for increased durability. Even when powered by an 8.4v the rifle is very responsive with very little trigger delay so you can perform a perfect double tap with ease. Thanks to a stiff spring and high compression cylinder you will see a consistent muzzle velocity of 370 fps making the SIG 556 ready for your next skirmish right out of the box.

Overall the SIG 556 is a well put together rifle with excellent build quality and attention to detail. With the added bonus of being able to take most M4 series magazines the SIG 556 is a welcomed edition to the airsoft arsenal.

Comes with: spare 300 rd high capacity magazine, 8.4v 1100 mah battery pack, 250 mah trickle charger and cleaning rod. Battery charge time: 4.4 hours

    5 out of 5- The BEAST!

    This thing is an absolute beast. Though I don't use it for CQB (That's my M4's job) this thing is my favorite airsoft gun. And by the way, I have this so this is a legit review. Okay so this thing goes 180 ft effective range with the hop-up finely tuned. It goes faster than Shorty says (about 400 fps). And from my experience get the intellect 8.4v 1600mah NiMH AK stick. The other one increases your ROF by like 75 bb's and for me personally I like it where it is because it's more realistic. Plus the battery life is longer by about 75 min. The weight with a 6v 126 lumen flashlight, jag rifle laser sight green, 7in 30mm red/green dot scope, and a foldable ris foregrip with a three point sling (that I all got from this site) comes out to be a little over ten lbs. But thanks to the sling plus the ris foregrip it's no problem (did I mention that I'm 12 yrs old). Although after about 2 1/2 hrs, it starts to get heavy. But it's not like other ones get heavy, too. And when is there ever a time when you stand up for a full 2 hrs straight. This gun is made from full metal, so it will last you a long time. What I do when it comes for cleaning is I lubricate and clean the gun every time I run out of my bag of bb's, so the cleaning is consistent. I suggest getting 130 rnd clips because it's more realistic and they are very reliable. One thing that sets apart this from other rifles is that you can fit two cr123a batteries, AA, or AAA batteries in the stock. Also a very nice feature - you can use any M4 magazines!

    So if you want to break away from the popular AK,G36,M16, and M4 (not that any of them are bad or anything), want a full metal gun, easy to use, but still be comparable with M4/M16 magazines. This is where your search ends.

    PLEASE RATE IF IT WAS HELPFUL!!!!!!!!!!

    4 out of 5- B.E.A.S.T.

    ok my friend got this gun ... this thing is an absolute beast. first off i'd like to say that this gun hurts. my friend shot me from about 160 feet away, and it felt like he shot me point blank range. it is really worth the money and it would be great to get for christmas or a birthday. this thing can compete with other good guns like classic army guns.

    -pros-
    fps!!
    battery life
    effective range
    beast

    -cons-
    rpm isn't great but o.k.

    ^nothing else really bad^

    overall i give this gun a 4 out of 5 and a 8 out of 10. it is very effective and powerful. this gun will not fail you and is trusty. a red dot sight or even a scope is compatible with this gun and it makes it even more better. get this gun and i promise you won't be disappointed.good luck and be safe.

    AIRSOFT FOREVER ALL!!

    5 out of 5- Sig 556 review

    I got this gun a week ago from shorty for Christmas and i must say i am very impressed. The gun itself is made out of full metal and was put together very well by cybergun. The rifle is very sturdy, and also very very heavy even for someone as large as me. The rifle comes with,2 hi-cap mags,an 8.4v 1100 mah battery pack, 250 mah trickle charger and cleaning rod. I recommend getting the INTELLECT 8.4v 1600mah NiMH AK STICK Type Battery or the INTELLECT 9.6v 1400mah NiMH AK STICK Type Battery because the standard battery included just doesn't cut it. The performance of this gun is phenomenal. The fps on the box says that it's close to 470 because they used .12's to chrono it but with a .2 the fps is actually 370-385. What i did, and i also recommend doing, was getting the battery upgrade and buying .23 g bb's. The .23's are just perfect. When the hop up is adjusted they have the best accuracy possible even though it lowers the fps to 345-355 (ALL CHRONOS DONE WITH STANDARD BATTERY).

    -PROS-
    FPS
    Range
    Extra mag
    Mag Cap
    compatibility with m4 accessories
    Looks
    Full metal
    Heavy/Sturdy
    Reliable


    -CONS-
    Price is a bit high
    Back sight is hard to flip up
    Battery storage is a bit tricky your first time
    Rpm is lower than average with standard battery


    -OVERALL-
    This gun is one of the best Aeg's I've ever owned and is great.

    4 out of 5- Alright...

    The Sig 556 is a BEAUTIFUL gun. seriously, it looks amazing. it also hurts. a lot.

    But anyway, this gun's stats are ok. shorty claims that it reaches 370 fps with a .2, but i would recommend a .25 for best accuracy. that drops the ps down to around 340. Range is pretty good, but it seems inconsistent. don't expect to get hits every time at 130-160 feet. The rpm is only ok. at about 760-780, it's a little less then i would want, but its not unbearable.

    The feel of the gun is amazing. It's very sturdy and it can take a few drops. It kind of feels like holding an m4/m16.

    Overall, the 556 is a pretty good gun for the price. If you like the look of this rifle then i would recommend it for backyard skirmishes and stuff. However, i would recommend the Echo 1 A.S.C over the 556. In my opinion, it's a better gun for the same price.

    5 out of 5- Amazing

    OK, I've owned 3 guns prior to this one, and out of the 3, this gun makes the others look like pop guns.

    The gun's weight makes it feel true to life and gives you that realistic feel on the field. The back sight folds to allow the placement of another optic, and (unlike others) i had/have no problem flipping the rear sight up. The gun is comfortable to hold, and the adjustable stock makes it a snap to go from a steady long shot to a quick tight turn around the corner.

    The gun features 4 weaver rails. The side rails are perfect for a laser or flashlight, while the top rail and bottom rail are large enough to hold anything from a front grip and a bi-pod, to a grenade launcher, or a red dot to a full scope on the top rail.

    I've found the gun's power and accuracy to be astounding, and like others, everyone who has been shot by it yells and complains about how much it hurts. I use .25's in it as recommended by a shorty's employee, and i can hit a target 200 feet away with ease. The 400bb HiCap mag (comes with two) is just the right size, easy to fill, and changing mags in the heat of battle is a cinch.

    The battery is by far one of the easiest I've ever put into a gun, fitting nicely above the barrel with hardly any wire at all to fidget with. If you need to change batteries during a firefight, it would take you less than a minute to swap out and continue to fire.

    over all, an amazing gun.

    Pro's
    1. Powerful and accurate
    2. Looks Great
    3. The price is just right
    4. Full Metal, and not too heavy/not too light.
    5. Impressive 400bb Mag.
    6. Easy battery installation.

    Con's

    2 out of 5- used to have it

    I owned this gun for all of 2 hours before I took it back to the store. It might have just been the gun i got, but the battery was a pain in the butt to put in! Like i said, it might have just been mine... it showed me that I was supposed to out the battery around the area of the barrel, which I found unnecessary... I returned it... Also, the hop up cover was really loose and felt like it would fall off, as well as the mag... save your money buy a better gun.

    4 out of 5- very good

    my friend got this gun a few weeks ago. it's extremely accurate and pretty powerful. But i guess the battery is tough to put in. i would recommend this to any good airsoft player.


    power: 4:5


    accuracy: 5/5


    Mag size: 5/5 (double mags)


    P.S. the magazine wobbles quite a bit

    5 out of 5- Great

    This gun has managed to exceed every one of my expectations. (I own this gun so this is a sincere review.) FPS, Aesthetics, and overall performance are all fantastic. The welts created by this monster are ungodly as well. I have to say after hearing about the plastic in this model I was a bit skeptical, but my opinion changed completely after holding it. This thing is built like a tank. The weight also gives it a very sturdy feel. The only complaints I can say about this gun are the magazine wobble and what vinniethechin said earlier, the first couple battery installations are a tad tricky.

    Pros:
    FPS
    Aesthetics
    Sturdiness
    Weight
    Lots of rails
    The 2 magazines with clamp

    Cons:
    Battery installation
    Magazine wobble

    The loudness of this gun could be an issue to some, but that all depends if you like a loud gun.

    5 out of 5- AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Hi, my name is Sam. I just bought this gun a week ago and it just came in today. I must say, when I saw the box I was surprised on how massive it was. The weight of the weapon is fairly compatible with the m-4. I couldn't wait to try it out. When they said 8 lbs, they meant 20!! For anyone who wants a lightweight gun, this isn't for you. It's too long for close quarter combat. The length isn't too much but most of the weight is in the front so i would recommend a grip to even it out. I wanted this for the field but now it'll become a sniper. I just need a $50 bi-pod and a $30 ACOG scope. The upper receiver is indestructible metal. The lower is "car run over" worthy plastic. Don't do that though.
    This gun has a few minor problems though. I feel like buzz Killington saying this, but the stock has a slight wobble and the mags don't fit snug enough for me.
    But you know......the barrel is 1 piece and the upper rail is metal too, so no more of your attachments will fall off. OverallI give this gun a 6 out of 5 because it's worth the money. I think the next gun i will buy will be another sig.

    P.S.I want a mini gun.

    4 out of 5- it's a nice gun

    well first of all it looks great. it's made of mostly metal. fps and range are standard. hurts somewhat. comes with two magazines and i think it comes with a clamp but i don't remember. here's the downside... for the price you can find a much more effective aeg or one comparable to this one for almost 100 dollars less. but if you want to be different from everyone else and get a gun that's unique to you then this is your choice. also the sig i used had a really bad magazine wobble. its owner had to put tape on and around the gun to prevent it from falling out. hopefully it was just his gun.

    Pro:
    range
    fps
    full metal
    accessory capabilities
    different

    Cons:
    PRICE
    magazine wobble
    maybe rpm depending on preference
