SIG receivers

Boy, oh, boy!! The receivers I had in my hand a few days ago. US made. Hopefully available this summer/fall. The project is still moving forward albeit slowly.

The ones JDI is working on? I know Dave has stated he hopes to get it done for the 55x. I've also heard someone is working on PE57 receivers

Well,

Hopefully they are receivers for 7.62x51 rifles.

What's wrong with the original caliber?

Fluted barrels, too.

OK, it's follow up time. You guys that are wanting Sig Stg 57's will be happy to see these pics. There are already approved samples. That's been done. These are the very first to roll of the assembly line, albeit a small test lot. There were will be very slight changes made to these to assist in the production, but they are complete, functional, US made receivers. Some barrels have been made. And, for those wondering, there will be both 7.5 Swiss and .308 NATO caliber, but the barrel profile with the be the same with both-the heavier 7.5 profile will be used and they will be nitrided, too. These are chamber fluted, too. The receivers are as they were originally produced, roller locked, tack welded and then furnace brazed. These have been a long time in the making and, hopefully, may have stampings/shells available as soon as 12 to 15 weeks. I know there are some here that do awesome work, but...........

Oh, yeah, I almost forgot. There will be complete receivers for sale, 50 parts kits for sale, US made barrels for sale and complete, functioning rifles (with the required US made parts) for sale. Every expense will be made to make sure that there are as close to perfect as can be made.

Uh oh. Someone is saying that these are now for sale. They are NOT presently for sale, neither are the parts kits, etc. They are still in the prototype stage and have not been built yet. There are some tweaking measures to be worked out. So, if you're saying they are ready, you would be wrong. Give us time to make a great product that's ready to be sold. Don't ask, don't call, don't PM, please. I'll update here when they are being shot. Thanks.

Test firing has began for 3 completely built rifles. We're going to run the crap out of these. And, I gotta make some charging handles as they will be a compliant part.

As cool as the StG/PE-57 is, I was really hoping for 7.62 540-Type receivers myself.

A few years back SIG displayed the 751 at SHOT but then promptly introduced the 716 instead.

These will be roller locked, just like originals, and in both calibers-7.62 and 7.5. I had pics up farther up in the thread and then someone here took that (somehow) to mean that they were ready and shipping. They then contacted other "friends" and apparently "ordered" 3 complete rifles. So, I was asked to take them down immediately. But, there are 3 rifles finished awaiting a battery of testing to make sure that they are really ready for someone to own. There are also a few minor changes to the receiver forming process and serial numbering that will happen after these have been fully tested. Progress has been made. There will be available 50 kits for sale, bare receivers for sale and complete rifles for sale, too.

Question regarding the shells and receivers. Will the shells be available for purchase by itself? Would building a receiver with owner supplied trunnions be available as an option sometime down the road?
