    why can’t they give us the folding stock MCX-MR prototype they submited to the CSASS program, that gun looked really good !!

  2. Mark says:

    I’m guessing they may want to rethink the KeyMod hand guard.

      A little hard to believe Sig didn’t swap that out for a M-LOK part in the weeks before SOFIC. Don’t those guys read SSD???

        It takes more than a few weeks for a large company like Sig to completely change their manufacturing line for a totally different standard. M-lok is coming, but will take a few months.

          Not talking about retooling the entire product line, I am talking about ONE RIFLE they are displaying at a major trade show. Besides that, the comment was obviously tongue in cheek with the “don’t they read SSD” reference. Lighten up Francis.

    Like Patrick said, can I get a folding stock and how about throwing in a M-Lok rail instead (especially considering the recent testing by USSOCOM).

    Its still heavier than the POF 7.62

    Wow. And it even accepts SR25 magazines without adding another potential point of failure :-)
