Made in Switzerland, the SG 550 is one of the few 5.56mm sniper rifles out there. Developed From the SG 550 assault rifle, accuracy is improved by the addition of a sensitive double-pull trigger, and also a heavy barrel. A bi-pod is standard as is a fully adjustable stock. I have no first experience with this weapon, but I suspect that the accuracy should be fairly good, with sub MOA performance.
