The SIG SG550 owes a lot to it's predecessor- the SIG SG510. Not in terms of any design or mechanical legacy, but sheer neccesity to break from it's mold.
The 510 was a fine piece of design, but that came at significant cost- it's the most expensive Standard Issue Rifle fielded, and with it came a lot of export-minded drawbacks: it was not easy to maintain, it was heavy, and it was built for full-power rifle rounds.

In the 1978, both major Swiss Arms companies (SIG and W+F Bern), set about building it's replacer. SIG's pattern - the SG541 - won out in 1981 and with minor alterations started production in 1983 as the SG550.
By previous standards, the 550 is a heavily economised design. It sheds many intricacies found in previous rifles, but the two things that made it such a powerhouse:
The first, a stamped steel receiver (capitalising on the techniques learned on the P220, cutting down production times significantly).
The Second was a long-stroke gas piston wholeform copied from the Soviet AK ( down to the locking recesses and bolt design).
The Swiss Army formally adopted rifle, and a shortened carbine, as the STG90. The gun fires 5.6mmx45 GP90 (5.56mm NATO) rounds in semi,full-auto or 3 shot bursts, feeding from 10,20,30 round translucent box magazines (Beta systems do make a 100 round C-Mag drum, but they're rare and unreliable).
It's capable of firing rifle grenades, comes standard with a bipod, and has diopter sights with inbuilt night setting. Over the last 25 years it has seen numerous additions to the platform, starting with the 550-1 Sniper, being joined by long barrel carbine iterations, the 552 "Commando" and 553 SOW, 553R (a sub-compact version chambered in 7.62x39), and most recently, a .300Blackout chambering soon to hit the European markets.

The NIArms SG550 is effectively comprehensive. Of all the variations of the primary 550 family, this covers all but 2 of the models,( and the SIG-Sauer SG556 family branch,) on the market, spanning the entire sevice life of the system.
Variations include(where applicable):
Native scope mount options
Scope-only NAR rail options
Full quad/tactical NAR variants
Grenade Launcher module variants
Short AND Long Barrel variants

Hello, i'm here to asking if it's possible in private if you can, to give me the files needed for an altis life server, in aim to modify the weapon to make civilian sigs with a semi-automatic mode only, is it possible ? ^^
GAPMAN Feb 6, 2020 @ 4:52am 
Can you fix the reload animation? After the last shot the bolt locks in the back but as soon as you hit R it snaps back even further. Could you edit the position of the boltlock so it doesnt move when pressing R ? I`d appreciate it a lot since this is the first reload anim which meets my standards.

Hey toadie thanks for your fantastic work as a member of the swiss army I waited so long for these, was ab bit frustrated not to see a 553 with GL... by the way I had an idea for a comission, who should I contact?
Chief Zuma Mar 7, 2019 @ 9:22pm 
I absolutely love these! The only weird aspect is that it feels like there's muzzle flashes every third shot or so, despite there being light. Not a problem during the day, but it looks a bit weird in night missions.

@[S2] Still A Lime Hey, there is a Swiss army mod which only includes a uniform retexture and i wanted to know if it would be acceptable for you to merge/allow the Swiss army mod by FanBF2 to use the SG550 and SG510 Rifles so that the Swiss army can be complete.

Most of the Swiss army mods/equipment are scattered around, it would be much better if the Swiss content could come togheter as one or simply cooperate.
