A little info on the SIG 552 commando rifle

The Original SIG SG 552 - Double Eagle M82 was made after this real rifle
SIG seems to have a little winner with their 552 Commando(the rifle’s full numeric designation is actually 552-2P). Just like all the other mini-assault rifles out there, the SIG 552 is designed for use in tight spots by special operators and air crew members.
What separates the SIG 552 from the rest of the competition is the engineered elegance of this little piece of lethal equipment. A number of very knowledgeable people in the small arms field have commented that the SIG 550 series rifles (all in 5.56mm) are probably the most beautifully engineered examples in their class. Swiss workmanship at its finest, and all that.

Back to the Double Eagle M82 Airsoft Rifle

Double Eagle M82 Airsoft Rifle
Double Eagle M82 Pack
On the Double Eagle M82 airsoft rifle everything is adjustable, and it is simple to use, but at the same time it can be complex.
You get:
- The Double Eagle M82 gun (actually durable and shoots straight, never had problems so far)
- A magazine that can hold around 40 BBs
- Mock silencer – shoots BBs upwards or to the right, better without it)
- Red Cross Sight with battery – great, you can adjust it precisely, but it is cheap so the dot keeps shaking
- Laser
- Flashlight
- Handle
- Safety goggles
- Sling – small and tight, only for travel use, not firefight
- Cleaning Rod
- A bag of 6mm BBs
- Rechargeable battery with battery charger included
- User’s manual

Why get the Double Eagle M82?

- Because this gun is extremely durable, and you can’t beat this one for the price.
- Has good accuracy and great velocity (around 260 FPS)
- It looks and feel real, it’s a great replica of the SIG 552 Commander
- Comes super accessorized

  4. Enzo I was going to say the same thing. I do like the tactical light being on the side though.

  5. Never really got into airsoft. Was more into paintball.
