First Look: SIG Sauer 556xi Rifle


New for 2014, the SIG Sauer 556xi rifle was designed to serve the growing demand for completely modular weapon platforms.

SIG Sauer's new rifle runs on a 3-position adjustable piston-driven system, allowing operators to tune the action for optimal function with suppressors, or during extended shooting sessions.


The 556xi is friendly to left- and right-handed shooters, with ambidextrous controls and a reciprocating side-charging handle that attaches to either side of the rifle in seconds.


SIG's new rifle platform can also adapt to fit many shooting applications. Quickly convert between 5.56x45mm, 300 Blackout and 7.62x39mm by swapping out a few parts on the same serialized receiver.

Available in the first quarter of 2014, the SIG Sauer 556xi rifle comes to market at $1500 to $1,600.
