I had a spare Sig Grey duracoated 556 lower sitting around and recently got a 556XI adapter and MCX skeleton stock. Decided to put it on to see how it looks...sort of a mix of old and new but makes for a nice backup STANAG setup on the 551.
Love it? Hate it? (I'm still on the fence.)

I did the same thing with my SBR'd P556 except used a 556Xi lower and I put a MPX retractable stock on it because I though you could shoot it with the stock collapsed but you can't so I kinda wish I'd used the MCX retractable stock as its a bit longer.
If you really want something you'll find a way ... ... if you don't you'll find an excuse.
I'm really not a "kid" anymore ... but I haven't grown up yet either
"We may consent to be governed, but we will not be ruled." - Kevin D. Williamson, 2012
"All the citizens of this land are of right freemen; they owe no allegiance to any class and should recognize no task-masters. Under the chart of their liberties, under the law of high heaven, they are free and without shackles on their limbs nor mortgages upon the fruits of their brain or muscles; they bow down before no prince, potentate, or sovereign, nor kiss the royal robes of any crowned head; they render homage only to their God and should pay tribute only to their Government. Such at least is the spirit of our institutions, the character of our written national compact."
