Good to hear on the 550, I wouldnít expect anything less...
And I agree on the stgw 07 being like a mini 90 Iím sure thatís why they chose that barrel length and color just kind of a compact modernized version of thec550 which is why I like SAN!
Multiple versions of badass in a design that just seems to work...well there was the 552 for a little trial run but adapting the 552 to the 3 just shows how resourceful the Swiss can be!

Its funny though, so many Americans seem to know of the SG552 but not always the SG553. I assume video games?

Anyway, I've had people ask me about getting them a 552 and i'll reply back with those are out of production but I can get 553s, and they don't want that. They want a 552, sometimes even after i explain the 553 is the same gun, just with a better, more durable operating system. Also, it accepts many more standard SG55x parts, where as the 552 has many proprietary ones.

The SG551P LBs got out of customs jail this afternoon, Dave is picking them up tomorrow, and they will be shipping out from Texas on Monday.

Just in time too as Dave is leaving for Europe for 10 days on Monday also.
