I bought this one from a good friend, I guess 2 years ago this month.
It is an unmatched rifle. Both the lower and upper are JDI but different serial numbers.
He gave me a good deal.

I'm pretty sure I posted the Meili case before. I bought from a Swiss member of the forum. He also gave me a good deal!

Although we all love the traditional gray receiver/green furniture rifles, I decided to go with black this time. I think it looks striking.

Thanks for all your kind comments.

After I got this one I went on a spending spree.
I bought the aforementioned Meili case, and a shitload of magazines. I already had some, but what good is a magazine fed rifle without magazines? Especially when the magazines are scarce and expensive in the US. You can never have too many.

I also stumbled on 1,000 rds. of Swiss 62 gr. 5.56 ammo from a web business called ammoshoponline.com The ammo came in a new 50 cal. ammo can. It is Ruag white box, 50 rds. per box. Unfortunately, they didn't have any Swiss 63 gr. ammo, but I thought it would be neat to have a quantity of genuine Swiss made ammo for this one and my 551-2 LB clone. That company hasn't had this ammo for a long time. When I checked their site today, they are down for modifications, and suggest re-directing to Norma.

And of course, I have the requisite green Wenger bayonet and the sight adjustment tool. And a soft black SIG case I got from Larry Gaglio from CCF many years ago.
