SIG Picture Thread

Recommended Posts

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.

 

Thanks for the info. Will a TM cheek rest suffice? also, I presume the scope mount you have attached is a TM? I heard they wobble a bit on G&G receivers, is this true? Thanks for the help.

 

On another note, what scope do you guys think would go well with a sg 550? I want something along the lines of an ACOG but I have the notion that it would look a bit small on the gun, would an ELCAN look any good?

Panoptes - Nice ;)

 

where do you get the finger grip from?...thanks

It's a real deal Hogue grip - bought it in a Dutch PX bizarrely enough.

 

Retailer-wise, not sure if airsoft retailers do them, tbh, at least not in the UK.

 

:)

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.

Well, that sure is a wealth of information! :blink: I really appreciate that! you really must have a lot of spare time on your hands :P

 

The reason why I want a TM cheek rest is because it's the only one I can find oddly enough! I like the look of the Elcan, it'd be sweet if you could get one in OD. Bummer about the scope mount, finding a G&G one for a good price is hard enough. Again thanks for the info, I just need to save up to get everything in order, which will be hard after Christmas and everything <_<

Just got my p226 a 2nd hand guarder mbk, guarder outer barrel, , and guarder 150% spring set. I started polishing the slide ,and decided not to go the full way. I like the contrast ,and I would only end up scratching it :) .

Just picked up a KSC P226 for cheap, and it fits perfectly in my 6004.

Needs a new slide and hammer spring though, anybody know where I could find them? Or something that would fit?
