View Full Version : Sig 556 forum

What happened to the Sig 556 forum? When I try opening it, it goes to Sigarms556.com and they want you to download something.

Have they changed something?

Is this the same forum only different? :tongue:

Am I missing something?

Thanks for your help

I get the same thing.

I really dont know much about this stuff, and didnt even stay in a holiday inn last night, but I would guess the owner didnt pay the fees and let the domain lapse. I would guess everything is still archived and once he pays the bills the lights will come back on, but I could be wrong.

Whether or not he'll pay the bills, or the forum is done, who knows.

It's too bad because there was a lot of good info there. I especially enjoyed the posts by Ullie.

Well I hope things work out for them. Also it's good to meet you chaps this is only my second post.

Looks like they're redoing it, it's got a PHPBB (forum software) place holder up right now.

Just went that and logged in. Way different than it was. Is the guy Ullie still there?

There is a lot of good information there. Some of the information and posts are a little old, but a good resource if you have questions. As more people go to it, then more of the topics and posts will be more up to date. gunfanx3

Nice looking flashiders, Moses. Do you make any that will allow for attachment of cans?

Your SiG is almost identical to mine except for your custom FH's and that rear sight. Mine has the folder with the CTR and the green Swiss style handguards also. I put gasket putty around the front of the handguards, the portion that fits in to the gas block to reduce the wobble...I figured it would withstand the heat from the gas block and would not scratch the finish.

A lot of people complain about these rifles, and I don't like the fact that SiG did not put the original Swiss diopters and hooded front sights on it, and the wobble in the handguard was annoying, but every time I take it to the range I fall in love with it all over again.

I replaced the SiG takedown pins with the spring loaded Swiss style quick take down ones from MFIAP...at the very least replace the front screw style pin with the MFIAP and it will make breakdown and cleaning quicker and it seem to have eliminated what little bit of play there was between the upper and lower as well.
