    Never had one but a lass at the range was almost upset about her new LanTac .22 when she tried the Sig.

    The only reason she wasn't was because she is familiar with the AR platform (she has SGC and Bradley AR's aswell)

    I see that as a pretty good recommendation

    Hi art school,
    Pretty much the usual stuff re accuracy and reliability esp with subsonic ammo.
    Is it noisy in operation?...seems like the Ruger 10/22 can be noisy. That's not good if bunny shooting at night.

    I've been reading reviews and they all seem to rate it highly.
    Pete Moore did one review last April.

    Any info welcome incl why you no longer have it if not being too cheeky.

    Thanks

    ok. I found it to be perfectly accurate at normal 22lr ranges. The trigger had a large first stage take up, and i could never get used to the upper and lower fit or the magazine wobble, but this is normal for these type of firearms.

    it cycled everything with out any hassle but did prefer eley sport. the action is noisier than a bolt action (obviously) but i found it quieter than a 10/22.

    i had the classic and because the barrel had the forend attached it was sensitive to hold or bipod when shooting.

    that said in my opinion its the best of these type of 22lr's, i used to have a pulsar n550 on the top for rabbiting and it did the job brilliantly.

    why did i sell it? simply because i had a bolt action 22lr that did the same job with less fuss and i wasn't keen on the military look of the rifle when out and about.

    do i regret owning one? no because it was a laugh down at the range blitzing through 25rd mags.

    Brilliant, thank you.
    I'm at that will-won't-I stage with it.
    It could be just down to the fact that I haven't bought a gun for a while.
    Need to chill out and take deep breaths

    well dont do what i did, which was to walk into a shop with one in stock with cash and a empty slot on my fac.

    if you fancy an ar15 type rifle you cant really go wrong with the sig.

    Thanks.
    Been reading up on them. The Target model they brought out sounds good though. Free floating 20,inch barrel,gets good reviews.
    What accuracy do you get from yours ?

    Regarding accuracy - I'm getting similar results to a heavy barrel CZ455 with my SIG522 SWAT, i.e most rounds are touching at 25 yards and just over 1" at 50 yards - that's with RWS subs. The only thing that lets any .22 SIG down is the military type trigger, in that its a fairly heavy pull, and that's regardless of whether its the so called target model or the standard. There are trigger tweaks available using modified AR15 springs.
