Sorry for those that voted for the FS2000 in my other thread.

I love this gun, shoots great, I just need an optic. Not one FTE or FTF.
Here are a few pics.



It is so easy to break down. (once you know the right buttons to hit)



Bolt work


Here is the size comparison-


I will try to get an optic soon and give my evaluation of how it works.

Enjoy

Congrats. I love my STG556 also. Very reliable and accurate in a shorter than my PS90 package.

Think hard about an optic. I tried a Millet DMS-1, 1-4x adjustable Illuminated DoD scope (like the eotech reticule) and with it the rifle was just too heavy. Almost 9.5lbs.

I am putting on a Trijicon Reflex II 6.5MOA amber dot on it once I get it back form being duracoated in urban digital camo and designating it my SHTF weapon.

STG-556

Thanks everyone

It was $1578.00 Delivered. It really is nice. I will try to drop a range report when I have the chance.

@MrNuke - I don't have any scope for it yet, I just recieved a Red dot clone from China yesterday.

It looks like an Aimpoint sight, I was going to put it on my PS90 but I my try it on the Microtech STG for now.

If I like this sight, I will get the real deal or an Eotech.

Contrats, BPx

She's a great looking gun! I too considered it for a moment, but never pulled the trigger on one. Now I'm jealous! :p

STG-556

I got it from Red's Trading Post from GB. Great price, I looked all around and they were the cheapest.

They also had Great Service and Super Fast Delivery.

I am very happy with them, they even offered layaway. Red's was about to move to a different location when I did the purchase.

They may still have some auctions up, if not PM me and I'll look up the info for you.

Helluva price. I just bought one in Vegas for $1850 plus the 3% cc processing fee, plus $45 shipping, plus $50 FFL xfer fee. SHould have it by the end of the week.

PS90 is next on the list.

Stopped by the range after work.

STG ran great, using an ebay cheap red dot sight but seems to be working good.

I just sold my Vector MP5/40 :cry: so I will be getting an EO. I had planned to get one fo my PS90 but now I want to try it on my Microtech.

Anyone know a place to get good/cheap .223. I have been shooting my extra duty stuff but I am running out.

Can someone recommend a brand for punching paper?
Has anyone tried the ballistic tip ammo? I am voiding buying some because I think the tips might break off in the rifle.

thanks

I love mine. Good quality, excellent accuracy, short package.

Here is a shot of mine with a compact ACOG on it...

I noticed your Muzzlebrake/Flash Supper is different than mine.

Will post a picture of it soon. It has 4 opening on top but is sealed on the bottom.

hmm, I don't think it is welded on there, so I may be able to change it.

let me know how it turns out i didnt want to purchase one because of my bad exp. with the mp5 clones from Special weapons (SW5) was a total piece of sh*t, and that is the main reason I been staying away from high priced clones

Microtech is a far better company and manufacturer than Special Weapons. They make some high quality stuff. Worth a hundred SW5's
