We unveil a rifle that we got in for testing and review, a Swiss Arms SG 551sp, otherwise known in Canada as a Classic Green Carbine. The genuine Swiss Arms rifles are world renowned for their to hell and back reliability and are a far better produced rifle than the US produced Sig clones that have a similar appearance to these rifles such as the 551A1.
This rifle has been re-barreled in order to comply with Canadian barrel length laws that make it non-restricted. Being non-restricted means that the rifle can be taken out and shot in legal areas such as private and crown land, and outside of a designated shooting range. Non-restricted rifles are also not registered, where as restricted rifles are registered and can only be shot in a designated shooting range.
Specs of the rifle are;
- Long Stroke Gas Piston System.
- 1 in 8 twist stainless steel barrel.
- 5.56 NATO Chambering.
- Rotating drum diopter sights.
- Foldable stock.
- Detachable box magazine.
