The old saying in Switzerland goes, “Switzerland doesn’t have an army, it is an army.” This is because most Swiss males serve in the Swiss army (militia) until 40. All are issued a rifle, which is kept at home. Switzerland is able to completely mobilize its armed forces within 48 hours. The Swiss Arms SG 550/551 is a automatic assault rifle chambered in 5.56 NATO and is the rifle of the Swiss Armed Forces. (Link guns.com)
Americans today have the option to buy from Sig Sauer the SIG556xi with all the legendary reliability of the Swiss 550 Series. The SIG556xi is also chambered in 5.56 NATO and is a 7.1lb Semi-Auto.
