SIG SAUER MCX Rifle Review and field test.
At first glance it looks like yet another AR clone, but once you get one of these in your hands you will find a lot more than meets the eye.
The hand guard is built in the popular key mod design that rides a full 12 inches of the barrel and come off via a convenient front takedown pin to give quick access for barrel changes or gas adjustment.
It runs on a short stroke gas piston system contained within the upper receiver, very reminiscent of the earlier Armalite AR-180 with dual springs attached to the bolt. This gives the shooter better options with regard to butt stocks.
