"I personally love this gun. It has a very solid and reliable feel. After about 5 days out with it I needed to have the O-rings resealed, but other than that it is a very fun gun to use. The mag release is much further up than the m4 I was previously used to using, and took a little getting used to. It was nice that I didn't have to change mag platforms even.

solid feel
good rof (with a 7.4 lipo)
great gun overall

has sealing issues (not a terribly expensive fix)
Awful stock

"TL;DR: Skip this gun.

The gun was mediocre right up until the stock snapped off.

Looks cool
Full metal
Loud blowback
M4 mags

Proprietary battery (I avoided this problem by using a mag pouch that attaches to the stock to hold a large type battery)
The handgrip is way larger than a M4 and the mag release is much farther as well. Considering the real steel version was designed to offer M4 users a seamless transition from one gun to another, this is a pretty big thing to overlook.
Crappy compression caused the gun to shoot at around 290 fps out of the box.
Proprietary parts all over the place, most of which have to be ordered directly from King Arms.
Very wobbly stock
The shaping of the rail system is such that I couldn't install most accessories without filing them down first.
The stock plate is made of extremely flimsy aluminum. Look around the various forums and you'll see that having the stock plate snap is a VERY common problem.
Crappy wiring

Like I said, stay away from this thing.

"Very solid choice for beginner or seasoned vet.

Solid FPS, 340-360
All Metal
Full rail system for future attachments
Takes most M4/M16 mags (albeit a little rough pulling out the mag when reloading)
Comfortable yet realistic weight
Good range, 100-110 feet

Special battery required for the stock
Stock tends to be difficult to collapse with wires for battery

NOTE: Recommend getting a fine file and smoothing out the gaps on the battery holder (The removable plate on the buttstock as seen in the picture) so you dont damage the battery's wiring when removing it to charge.

Other than the above cons, great weapons for any type of player.

"The SIG 556 "Shorty" is an amazing firearm. I have used it in 2 special operations already, and it has not let me down. The gun is put together niceley. The whole gun is metal except for the stock and grip (as expected). It is not to heavy and is very manuverable. Now to go over the pros and cons:

-Full metal
-FPS range circles around 380-400
-Very durable, no wobble at all
-Blowback is a nice feature
-Accuracy is amazing

Of course theres other pros, i just hit the main points

-Takes a special battery only made by intelect (Of course you could wire together your own, but it could take some work and is a little stressful)
-The battery wires are hard to put together, and when inserted, the stock takes a little force to adjust, but its not that bad.
-Turning the blowback feature off takes time and alot of unscrewing/removal of parts
-The blowback is load (which, is your preference, just its loader than you would think; Trust me, sounds like a small gun)

All in all this gun was and is exactly what i was looking for. It doesnt matter where you are, the SIG 556 "Shorty" is an eyecatcher. Thanks King Arms for this wonderful weapon of airsoft destruction. And, a great thank you to Evike for having this weapon.
