Question Sig Sauer 551A1 sling? - found!

I picked up a brand new in the box Sig Sauer 551A1 recently and was surprised that it did not come with a sling. Did these rifles come with a sling originally? I wonder if the dealer misplaced it as they've had this rifle for years! Anyone buy one of these new? Mine came in a nice Sig Sauer marked hard plastic case and only had a lock, two 30 round mags, some grease and paperwork.

Anyone know of a good source for an appropriate sling? I realize this isn't an original military version, but it's probably as close as I will get and I'd like to have a sling that's similar to what might have been used on the Swiss military Sigs.

Here it is with it's Beretta AR70 cousin...

JDI Firearms sells the correct slings out of stock now...

You need a set of Swiss sights for that fine rifle also...







My SIG-556 shoots a lot better sense I junked the crappy SIG diopeter sights...

I have an adjustable green stock (like new) that JDI is asking $250 for. Look at the website to confirm. If someone happened to make me an offer I would be willing to sell it.

Thumbs up

JDI never responded to my inquiry but I was fortunate to find one from a local collector (and fellow AKFiles member). Price was steep for canvas but I guess that's the way it goes with hard to find Swiss items. The bayonet fits great, too, like a Swiss watch!
