SoftAir Licensed Cybergun Sig Sauer SIGARMS SIG556 Airsoft AEG Rifle
by Sonny Z. Date Added: March 2, 2010
I had a random chance to examine this AEG at a walk-in store but sadly not fire it. The 556 overall had a really nice build to it. Most of the external parts were metal, with the exception of the handguard, the pistol grip, the collapsible stock, selector switch and the charging handle (sadly). Despite being plastic, the aforementioned parts still felt good in the hands. The collapsible stock did have a little bit wobble, but not seriously noticeable. Like all other M4 style stocks, it easily pops off for after market parts.

This AEG does in fact, come with the dual-mag clamps. The mag clamp was rather straight forward, it simple slides in-sync with the line groves on the mags and did not wobble at all. The magazines (yes it does come with both mags) are of wonderful build quality and made a satisfying "click" upon insertion into the mag well.

Unfortunately the selector switch seemed poorly constructed. There was no quality reassuring "click" upon switching from safe - semi - or auto. Could have been a lemon but who knows.

The iron sights were also a let down. The front hooded sight was reasonable built, but does not fold down to accommodate low profile optics. The rear sight does fold down into the rail itself, but features only a "peep-hole" style cut into the sight.

The magazine release is a little farther off than the M4/M16 family of rifles, but this shouldn't be a problem unless you've got short fingers. The release button was a little tough too. There's no functioning bolt catch neither.

This probably has a great AEG if you can work your way around it's external flaws. Nothing too serious and since it eats M4/M16 style mags, this won't the wallet if you're in the market for something different than the oh-so-common M4 style AEGs.
