SIG SAUER SIG MCX Carbine Makes Gun Digest ‘Gear of the Year’ List


Newington, NH -( The SIG SAUER SIG MCX Modular Carbine has been named to the Gun Digest “Gear of the Year” list in its Winter 2015 issue, hitting newsstands now.

“SIG has been making a lot of noise in the industry… The SIG MCX platform is one of its finest new introductions,” Gun Digest editors wrote in the issue. “We had the opportunity to shoot and review the modular masterpiece and came away very impressed.”

Noted by the Gun Digest test team, the SIG MCX offers operators the ability to quickly convert the rifle from 5.56 NATO to .300BLK to 7.62x39mm in a matter of minutes. A variety of barrel lengths and stock options, including SIG’s thin, side-folding aluminum stock, make the SIG MCX easily adaptable to any use.

“We’re honored to have the SIG MCX selected by the editors of Gun Digest as a ‘Gear of the Year’ selection,” said Tom Taylor, Chief Marketing Officer for SIG SAUER, Inc. “We knew that the SIG MCX was going to change everything people thought they knew about modular carbines, and we’re thrilled to see that the Gun Digest team agreed.”

With its incredibly durable, adjustable gas-pushrod operating system, the SIG MCX moves between the different calibers, as well as between supersonic and subsonic loads, with no change in reliability. Weighing in at just over 6 pounds with its KeyMod handguard and side-folding stock, the SIG MCX is the perfect choice for almost any need.

Designed from the ground up to be a short-barrel, silenced rifle chambered in .300BLK, the SIG MCX delivers pinpoint accuracy with all calibers and loads. With the addition of an AR buffer tube adapter, the SIG MCX accepts any aftermarket AR-style stock, allowing operators to set up their SIG MCX to suit their preferences.
