Traded an AR pistol for it,plus a little cash.
Need to get a manual,some sort of rear iron sight,better optics,change out the handguards and then possibly the stock.

sig is running a special,you can get a new lower with a sig swiss folding stock for 349 ,no shipping charges. I got one and it is great. makes it look just like a 551, nice trigger also

Yeah,

Change those handguards ASAP. They weigh a ton and the rifle becomes much more handy with the regular ones. Im not a purist so I like the semi collapseable stock over the Swiss one. The rear SIG diopter sight is pretty pricey and, I dont think its worth it over money spent on a new optic.

I am looking at a pair of Swiss style handguards right now.
Also an Ace folding stock set up.
I would like some type of rear iron sights,just not sure if I want to spend a lot of money on it.

I just bought new production 556 Classic, and specifically want to stay with the Swiss folding stock. I find the telescoping AR stock to be one of the worst features of that platform, and like to be able to fold the gun to almost half its length for transport. The new Classics have much more trim handguards than the pictures old style fish gill version. Also, the folding stock is of a different design than the one pictures above.
