SIG 551-2 (Serial # 1) Unfired
MODEL: 551-2 (Rare Serial #1)
CALIBER: 5.56mm Nato (.223 Rem.)
This is SIG 551-2, serial number 1. Unfired/test fired only by SIG. This rifle was in a private collection for 3+ decades and is the last rifle of a 30+ year SIG collection. Ultimately, it was decided to let this gem go. When it was originally purchased, the owner was told by the reputable source/seller, that it was on the SIG museum’s wall prior to the closing of the museum [the clear nail-polish over the engravings and serial number, supports this as a display firearm]. There were approximately (45) 551 rifles imported before the Bush Import Assault-Weapons ban in 1989 — making them one of the rarest commercial rifles of the type to have ever been imported to the United States. This is not one of those SIG imported rifles for retail sales.
As with anything production made, there is only a single #1 of anything. This is “that one” for Swiss SIG 551-2 rifles. It obviously shows its stunning Swiss heritage, engineering, and quality. Only the earliest imported rifles were all green, the later units being combos of gray-green-black. The 90-series SIG firearms are held in very high-esteem by all firearms manufacturers and serious collectors. You’re a fortunate person to have a Swiss SIG 551 of any sort, really fortunate if it’s one of the pre-ban imported rifles, and this is well — the lotto/grail of 551’s. This is not a “SAN” rifle, or cobbled ex-police, SBR rifle. This is also not a recent import being sold as a “pistol”. This is a new, true Swiss manufactured, pre-ban SIG 551-2 rifle. Serial # 1.
