Law Shield members who dig SIGs may be interested to know that SIG Sauer, Inc. has imported a limited number of the Swiss Arms SG 553 pistols to the U.S. market.
As always, Law Shield doesn’t endorse products, but we do like to let members know about interesting products or services when we find them.
Jeff Creamer, SIG Sauer’s executive director and general merchandise manager, said, “This was a unique opportunity and the only time SIG Sauer has been able to offer the SG 553 to the commercial market in the United States.”
Built around the SG 551/552 series gas-piston actions, the SG 553 features a two-position gas valve, ambidextrous controls, polymer handguard, and hooded front sight. The SG 553 is chambered in 5.56x45mm NATO, and has a Nitride-treated finish.
The SG 553 is available with either the Swiss Rotary Diopter Sight welded to the receiver or with an M1913 rail, for mounting any number of optics or accessories. Flip-up sights are standard on the railed models.
Swiss 30-round translucent polymer magazines and a three-prong flash hider complete the package. MSRP is $3792.
A parallel offer for the SG 553 SBR, MSRP $4194, has already sold out.
