If you haven’t seen em yet, SIG’s been publishing videos each week showcasing the awesomeness of their new rifle the MCX Virtus.

“Virtus,” a name pulled from antiquity, means virtue, courage, bravery, excellence.

Basically, the word on the Virtus is that it is the best, most adaptive, most accurate, longest-lasting AR platform rifle on the market. In other words, ladies and gentleman, the bar for black rifles has been raised!

There have also been rumblings that this video series, which will culminate with a fourth and final video to be released next week, will unveil a game-changing product…  I like the sound of that!

So, stay tuned.  And get caught up by watching episodes I, II and III published below:

    I bought a MCX in 300 blackout several months ago. The rifle has shot great and is very accurate. I put a tactical scope on it and used a laser to borescope. The first shot hit the right side of the X in the bullseye. I put three shots on the target that you could cover with a quarter.

    After owning a sig 556 Russian I would never buy another rifle made by sig it was the biggest piece of junk firearm I ever owned,wouldn’t fire 3 rounds in a row without some kind of jam,the worst wobble looseness between the upper and lower I have ever saw!

    Area 52 speaks truth. Sig has let us down here of late.

    SIG firearms advertised several firearms being modular and multi-caliber. No modular parts or caliber converting kits ever materialize. Then they introduce the MCX and subjected the early models to an upgrade. It was very thoughtful of SIG to put a 10-12 LBS. trigger on the early model. They finally appear to get the 556 right with the 556xi, again no modular parts and it appears they discontinued it. Now the latest fiasco with the SIG p320 is upon us. . That defect should have been detected and corrected before it was even marketed. Then they want to market this new rifle? They need to clean up what’s on their plate first. I won’t be spending any more money on their products.
