Even the pre-production guns looked like a sloppy turd. That includes the guns mocked up on Swiss upper with 550 gas system (then later the 551 gas system), stupidly tall optic rail, folding front sight, Command Arms stocks, silly over styled m4 stock AR mag lower, etc.
At the very least I had high hopes that the upper receiver would be compatible with Swiss barrels, so the extraneous garbage could be tossed and a nice clone could be made using the upper receiver and fcg parts for 922(r). We, the early adopters quickly learned that upper was not compatible with Swiss barrels.
Optic rail attachment using nutcerts, full retard configuration as it relates to furniture, lower, etc. What a total goat F&$@.
The entire 556 project was a doomed from the start.

That sums it up pretty well.

Ya might say I'm partial to them.
I have my own style of humor. I call it Snarkasm.
I owned two 556 classics. Sold one NIB. It turned out to be a ‘good one.’
Mine, however, was 5 moa due to an off center crowning job. Once that was fixed, it was an moa rifle.
Bad QC, Bad support. Bad move on this rifle. Hopefully a lesson learned.

I have a 556xiP in 7.62x39mm. Picture a SIG Krink.
The only complaint I have is I can't install a PDW type brace.
It is a blast to shoot, in the literal sense. I had it out to the range a week ago with a friend who never shot it. When he was done, he noticed thee muzzle blast shredded a paper target sitting on the bench next to where he was shooting from.
For the purpose I bought it, i.e., shooting in 2-gun, it would have be perfect.

Which type of brace do you want? The SB SDP looks very close to the proper Swiss stock and CDNN has for cheap right now.
