I've been waiting for these pics. Very nice and congrats on the new rifle. I'm curious to hear how it performs. Makes me wish I would've kept my 556

Finally got to shoot it today. My ammo order didn't come so I had to scrounge up what I could. Did a complete cleaning and lube prior to heading to the range. I had 60 rounds of AE 150gr FMJ and 60 rounds of misc .308 that has been laying around since the late 70's. Currently shooting iron sights only. Have not made the investment into optics yet. Target set at 100 yards. First 20 rounds of AE were ceter mass and 4" high. 17 in a nice group and I pulled 3 low. Made a sight adjustment and set 20 more down range. Tight group 1" high. One more adjustment and the next 20 were in the bull. This thing shoots extremely well. Zero FTF or FTE's. It was flawless.

That really looks good - I've always liked Sigs but had not considered this rifle before. Where did you get it? Thanks!

Silver, you lucky dog. My sights were over 18" high at 100 yards (didn't have an opening in the shorter distances) so I had hell sighting it in. Once it was on, it did really well, no FTE/FTF. I got the Magpul buttstock pad (0.70") and it was fun to shoot. Couldn't do it all day, but definitely helped.

Got mine at Gunbuyer.com, name is Laura. Super easy to deal with, and got mine for cheaper than anywhere else I could find. FDE edition for $1,700 shipped.
