lol kozzie I feel bad XD, not knocking the sig 551 just the vfc sopmod i've heard tonnes of good things about, dont know anything about the 551 internally.
agreed on the build quality, the sig 551 feels amazing in the hands, one solid gun. the reciever feels so nice and the selector switch is so clicky (good thing).

My two biggest complaints with it are the swinging trigger guard is too easy to swing and can get annoying. I put a couple dabs of glue to stick it in place and I totally forgot about about it. The other issue are mags, it takes proprietary mags and ICS ones can be tough to find. That being said Tm and MAG brand mags will fit and feed perfectly with a small modification see thread > http://www.airsoftcanada.com/showthread.php?t=117937
< The best thing about the Sig 55X other than the fact that it looks so damn cool are the mags. They will lock together so your loading time is virtually cut in half. The other cool thing is that the mags are clear, this lets you easily see how much ammo you have left.
