The weapon has a SIG Flatblade 2-stage adjustable match trigger for ultimate control. It is optics ready, and SIG recommends the Romer 8T 1x38mm optic to complete the system. The weapon is available in three configurations: a pistol, a short-barreled rifle (SBR), and a rifle. All configurations are subject to NFA rules and regulations.
The pistol configuration has a 13" barrel and a Picatinny rail section at the rear of the receiver for attaching accessories.
