sig_sauer_SG_553_F1SIG Sauer Inc. is now importing a limited number of Swiss Arms SG 553 pistols to the U.S. market.

The Swiss-built SG 553 is manufactured around the SG 551/552-series gas piston action and features an adjustable two-position gas piston system, ambidextrous controls and a hooded front sight.

“The classic SG rifle series are highly sought among collectors and firearms experts,” said Jeff Creamer, SIG Sauer executive director and general merchandise manager. “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.”

The SG 553 is chambered in 5.56x45mm NATO and is available with either the famous Swiss Rotary Diopter Sight welded to the receiver or with a Picatinny rail for mounting optics or accessories. Flip-up sights come standard on the railed models, while all models come nitride finished for enhanced durability.

The SG 553 pistol also incorporates a Swiss-style polymer handguard, translucent polymer 30-round Swiss magazines and a three-prong flash-hider. It has a barrel length of 8.9 inches, an overall (extended) length of 20.2 inches and a weight of 5.9 pounds without a magazine.

The SG 553 pistol is available in limited quantities for $3,792.

    Can someone donate that 3 mag Z88pistol pouch and a thigh holster to me.I’m a poor cop from SAMy

    I’ll say this just once. There will NOT be a Zombie Apocalypse. Thus the need for a $3,800 toy of this nature is non-existent, even though ammo makers especially would dearly love to see many, many people owning such a firearm. For $3,800 one could buy some other pretty classy weaponry along with a bunch of ammo without trying to figure out how to tell the wife that the kids’ braces and school clothes would have to wait along with a new set of tires for family’s mini-van.

      To rub the fact that you metrosexuals are completely out of control. You all are an embarrassment to the USA. You’re like little girls playing with dolls. You’re clueless.

      They deleted my comment because they don’t want others to hear the truth. It may affect their profits. Sad.

        Your trolling

  • carpetlayer61 .

    For a lot less money and just as good you can get a LAR PDS pistol. I have one and love it!!!

  • Marlin

    I’m sorry but to me it’s half the gun it should be. Hold that with an out streached arm and fire it for very long and you’ll see what I mean.

    • Marlin

      Put a stock on the thing then you got something.
