    Default US made Sig's vs German made Sig's

    I've always had a desire for a Sig or two.

    Been reading a lot about them etc.

    There seems to be varying opinions on the US made Sigs not being up to scratch compared to the German made ones, specifically the Cohen era Sigs.

    Does anyone have any experience with regards to this?

    Edit: As everyone knows the only real Sigs are hammer fired!

    Even in the USA, the American Sig rifles are not regarded even slightly as highly as the Swiss/German product.
    Less of an issue for the pistols, as they are moving most of their production over to the USA for export reasons. The USA pistols are generally good to go, and since there won't be anymore Swiss/German pistols, the USA ones will have to do. But expect cost and mass production to overshadow quality and hand fitting slightly a little bit, as expected.

    Based on personal experience with Sig/Swiss Arms versus Sig Sauer rifles I agree.

    the Sig/Swiss Arms 55x model range is imo of a definite and quite a lot higher quality and workmanship than the Sig Sauer 556 model range iro the whole rifle.

    The 556 has a spotty history iro qc and somewhat iro reliability from what I read on the USA forums.

    The Gen1 556R was an abortion. The serious problems were fixed but there were still some niggles and apparently even with the 556Rxi.
    Speed is important, but not at the sacrifice of accuracy, but being accurate needs to be fast enough.
