    SIG Picture Thread

    It doesn't look like an ICS to me. From your pictures, it looks like the bolt is a single molded piece (i.e. the charging handle isn't removable, so the little release lever doesn't need to be able to rotate) and looks more like the JG SIG. There are other things as well (front sight, takedown button (or apparent lack thereof), texture of the stock, style of the RIS, flash hider, etc.) that lead me to believe it's not an ICS rebrand. What does intrigue me is that the page that you linked to says it has blowback. I am not aware of any SIGs (other than the King Arms 556's) that have that feature. Does yours have blowback? Also, does it have a metal upper/lower receiver? Now that I think about it, I recall something like a year or two (or three) ago in the news section about JG coming out with a bunch of blowback SIGs. Took a bit of looking, but I found the thread... http://www.arniesairsoft.co.uk/forums/index.php?/topic/182230-new-stuff-from-jg/ coming up on 3 years old, but it seems that these are finally out on the market... or maybe have been, and I just was entirely unaware...

    I was referring mainly to the 550. The build quality is much better. As for the weight, I guess that's what you get for having a steel receiver and thick outer barrel...

    I'm aware they were discontinued, but I just didn't think they were recalled... I mean, I have two TM 550s and one 551, all with working burst chips. I've also seen a few other ones come up for sale in the ~$150-170 range that I passed on because I didn't really need any more. I'm not familiar with the laws in Japan regarding airsoft guns, particularly with metal receivers, but if there is any way you can get the G&G one, I would take that over a TM. Some older incomplete pictures of the family are buried elsewhere in this thread... my collection has grown since then... http://www.arniesairsoft.co.uk/forums/index.php?/topic/134236-sig-picture-thread/page__view__findpost__p__2426420 http://www.arniesairsoft.co.uk/forums/index.php?/topic/134236-sig-picture-thread/page__view__findpost__p__2226318 One of these days, I should get a new family photo... I think it's currently standing at 11 SIG rifles and 6 pistols (though 2 are springers)... Unnecessary? Absolutely.

    The TM SIG 550s were recalled? Which ones and why?

    Why not? I'm kind of a collector, which is why I have the 2 TMs, and then the 3 G&Gs... I had my original one, then I found the other two at prices I couldn't seem to resist (one of them effectively cost $180). I've been looking at the insides and one of them is going to become a project gun where I hope to replace the wiring with thicker wiring, change the battery tube connection to something that can manage more current, and then also try and figure out how to add in a 3-round burst. I know how to get it to click into an additional selector switch location, but it's just a matter of how to wire it to have 4 selector switch settings. I think I'm going to have to look at my TMs to figure it out. I mean, some people have multiple Armalites, some people have multiple AKs, some have G36's. I have SIGs.

    The TM and RS P90 optics won't fit in the Toytec without a lot of custom work, and even then I'm not sure how well it will turn out given that you won't have the clearance to be able to really adjust the optic like you normally would. The fake optic that comes with the Toytec (unless they also made another accessory that was a working reflex sight) is slightly narrower than the TM/RS and attaches very differently. Since the "module" is a different shape, you'll need to remove a lot of plastic to get a different thing to fit in. It seems like it would be easier to make a few spacers and just attach some sort of rail to the top instead.

    I would imagine the TM one might work, though it might have the same problem as the ICS version with the inability to fold the stock. Also, finding a TM one nowadays is tough, isnt it? As long as you don't mind not being able to fold and lock the stock while the cheek rest is on, the ICS should be fine. The scope mount I use on it now is actually from my JG. The TM high mounts were actually more wobbly than the JG was, and it also put the scope too high to be usable. Basically, it seems that the tightening nub doesn't line up with the indent in the rear sight assembly quite right. It's a little bit too high. There could also be a minor difference in the front locking mechanism too, but it seems to hold there fine and be level with the top of the receiver. I intend on getting the G&G mounts for it at some point, and hopefully those will fit properly, but for $28 or $43 plus shipping, I don't need it yet. As long as I tighten the JG one enough and don't force my scope around, it seems to be firm enough. I haven't tried the ICS scope mount, but since (I think) I've read that it has no issues with fitting on the JG, I would assume it will have the same issue as the TM and JG ones on the G&G. Below is a picture of the JG scope mount on a JG and on a G&G: As for the scope, I just recently ordered (maybe 5 hours ago) a new scope for my 550. I thought I'd like a nice big scope like an 3.5-10x40 M3 scope or something, and in my picture have a Centerpoint 4-16x40 (that is closer in size to a 50mm scope). After having that on the gun, I decided that it was a bit too big and mounted a little bit too high for my liking. Also, I think that it feels like the scope sits kind of far forward and makes the gun look funny with it on. There's a picture somewhere in the first 10 or 15 pages of someone else's TM/JG based 550 that I kind of like the look of, but in addition to the scope being a bit big, the hassle of having to take off the scope every time I need to deal with the battery was getting to me. The scope is a bit huge, and I think it looks fine on my AW-338, but on the SG 550, it's a bit big. Anyway, I kind of like the looks of the ACOG, but most of them that have zoom capabilities (i.e. not just a red dot) are a bit on the expensive side. I was browsing around RSOV for some stuff to order before their sale ends, and had seen http://rsov.com/index.php?target=products&...product_id=4517 show up recently. To me, it looks like a cross between a scope and an ACOG, and I guess it looks like some of the NCStar scopes (which are also going to be maybe $100+). I kind of like the looks of it, and it didn't seem too expensive, especially once I ordered a few more things to defray the shipping a little bit. In hindsight, it may have a similar issue of getting in the way of the hand guard when trying to switch the battery, and I may need to get a short riser mount for it, but hopefully it will look fine. It just occurred to me while looking for the picture of the SG 550 that I kind of like the look of (but couldn't imagine doing it to my G&G) that browsing through this entire thread would give some possible ideas of what scopes you might like the look of with your G&G. Sometimes you just have to imagine what the scope would look like on a 550 instead of the 551, 552 or 556. The SG 550 I was thinking of earlier was appslapp's ( http://www.arniesairsoft.co.uk/forums/inde...t&p=1931133 ). It could just be the combination of the smaller scope, lower mounting, the paint job, and the overall look. Also, since I was bored, I did some of the looking for you.

    It's the ICS cheek rest. It doesn't quite fit right on the G&G, especially when the stock is folded (i.e. the stock does not fold and lock when it is on). I haven't fiddled with my SIGs recently, but from what I remember, the way that it fits and the location of the front pin relative to the hole in the cheek rest makes me realize the minor differences between each of the brands that you would not otherwise notice. It does work excellently at elevating my eye to the level of the scope that was on there (which is currently with my AW338, since it seemed awkwardly big on the SIG 550 among other reasons). At some point soon, I'll have a new family picture, since the family has grown since those pictures.

    My G&G is currently one of my two primaries (along with my P90). It is by far the nicest of my Sigs. The ICS was kind of a letdown, but I may still use it more often the the G&G in the future just because it is lighter and more maneuverable and overall more manageable. The downside to using such a big scope with it is that I have to remove the scope in order to access the battery, which is kind of a pain. I finally got the family together for a group picture. When you put too many mags together and then try to attach too many Sigs to them, the mags are more likely to crack. After cracking one when I attached 4 of them together and was holding a quadruple Sig, I decided to avoid doing so again. Also, holding 4 airsoft guns that are attached by their mags is awkward and heavy, especially when the G&G with the scope and stuff weighs something like 13lb alone. It's also really weird when you're loading the gun onto the mags instead of loading the mags into the gun... Tripod!

    There haven't been too many 550's recently. Here's my new G&G Sig 550. Haven't taken any pictures yet with the "good" flash hider.
