Legendary SIG556 Performance Now in Pistol Size

EXETER, NH – SIG SAUER, Inc., the leading manufacturer of commercial, law enforcement, and military firearms, has introduced the P556, a pistol version of the SIG556 rifle. The P556 Pistol, in 5.56 x 45mm NATO, is a semi-automatic pistol with the same gas piston operating rod system and two-position adjustable gas valve that make all SIG556 rifles reliable performers.

The P556 pistol features an ergonomic pistol grip, rotating bolt, and is designed to accept standard AR15/M16 style magazines. Available in two styles, one uses an alloy quad-rail forearm for attaching lights, lasers, and other optics; while the second model utilizes a Swiss-type polymer hand guard for the clean retro look of the SG 550™; the rifle that created the worldwide demand for precision Swiss arms.

The P556 is outfitted with the SIG SAUER STS-081 Mini Red Dot Sight and is shipped in a Tactical Soft Case with one 30-round magazine. The P556 SWAT, which includes an alloy quad-rail, has an MSRP of $2,099.00. The Standard P556 model ships with a Swiss-type polymer hand guard and has an MSRP of $1,875.00.
