    Craig, first off thank you for your service. Secondly, the MCX is literally an AR 15 with an AR 18 gas system. I agree that the AR is #1 and I think that the MCX is not enough of an upgrade to justify. I still think you should research before you post though, you seemed to be referring to the 550 series of Sig rifles from the 80s/90s. Also, a soy latte might not be a bad thing for you man, some healthy life choices might not hurt…

    HILARIOUS!
    Considering the various military forces that have used these over-priced arms made for the Swiss and the ‘limp-dik soy latte video game’ crowd.
    For the last 30 years, Sigg and FN have been making over-priced low-rent arms. The military SOLDIERS have complained bitterly about those firearms and their LACK of interchangeable magazines, their high failure rates and poor ergonomics.
    But, hey, it’s only our money and our sons and daughters. I guess the soy latte purchasing agents and female selection board types figure Americans can make more of each, regardless the true cost.

    Wow. Did not take long to trigger the flaccid, non-competition shooting, non-military veteran, soy latte video game crowd. Anywhere in the U.S., in any rifle competition, the AR15 platform always commands the top three positions on the podium. No AK47s, no FN plastiguns, no Sigg cookoo clock guns, no HK Teutonic wonder guns, it is always an AR15 platform. Even in regimented position shooting, the M1A has been replaced for the last 16 years by the AR15 platform. So, you can scream, cry, stomp your feet, but, I have been shooting in competition for over 35 years, probably longer than… Read more »

    Why don’t YOU tell us about your extensive military service and the decades of firearms competition experience you have and your Full name so we can verify, otherwise you are a Keyboard Hero hiding behind anonymity.

    Damn, you sure are long winded. By the way Craig I don’t give a damn about a dash. P.S.- The more you say in your posts the less educated I think you are and stop bragging about your military service. True vets know who they are and don’t need the recognition.

    Maybe that’s the plan. They’ll buy all this, and it will mysteriously materialize in backwater middle eastern areas. Just like our small arms and cash did in the late ’80s.
    I mean, these days with Instagram and Facebook you have to be a stylish terrorist. You wouldn’t want to he caught with last year’s shemagh and a Chinese AK. Now, would you?
    Sure would be nice though if some of the surplus this creates ended up on CTD, or Sporto’s site.

    Craig, these are completely different from what you’re talking about…look up Sig USA and the MCX rifle. Not German or Swiss made… They can even use AR lowers. Lots to complain about here except for what you brought up LOL. Maybe you should research before you post…
