    Navy SEAL Sig Sauer 552?

    When did airsofters become authorities regarding real firearms? I fail to find any credible online source regarding the Sig Sauer 552 ever being used by the US Navy SEALs or any other US Special Operations Forces. Is the Navy SEAL Sig Sauer 552 a confabulation of delusional people for the sake of airsoft fodder or is it really in the US SOF arsenal?

    I'm sure there are a few in armouries. But I'm going to go with marketing ploy as far as their claimed use by SEALs.

    Maybe they were looking at the Commando Hubert guys from France.

    I've never seen it in the armory as an issue item. Sure there may be some somewhere, but its far from standard. But it looks cool, that is enough for most people.

    I have found that anything "Airsofters" find cool becomes CAG or DevGru automatically. They don't generally like to be told they're wrong and fall back on their "When I was there" days in their fantasy lives. I've heard so many stories of people in BLACK OPS hush hush units that never had a designation and thats where their knowledge comes from...its quite sad honestly.

    Lol I played a game once an the battery in my M4 crapped out on me so I pulled my secondary and the ... hat next to me told me in the field a real soldier would never use his side arm........Uh WTF??? And yes I do play the odd game of airsoft here and there. But my information limited it may be comes from me being in the USAF.

    I believe the Sig Sauer 55x series rifles are some of finest weapons ever made, but disregard the airsofter's opinion on the matter. However, Sig rifles are expensive and the cost could explain its absence from the US SOF's arsenal.

    Considering their primary sidearm I wouldn't be suprised if they looked into it. That's a big leap from being in the arsenal.

    I know for a fact that the Sig Sauer P226 is an exceptional sidearm.

    I must concur. If the P226 is being used, I'm pretty sure the 552 has had some field time.
    It just isn't a popular platform for the operators.

    Being into airsoft myself, I could understand why airsoft hobbyists would mistaken the 552 as a SEAL assault rifle. A company named Tokyo Marui released an AEG with the Sig Sauer 552 license and incorporated "SEALs" with the product; therefore became a misconception in the "airsoft world".

    Here is a link showing the product. Pay attention to the box.

    There were some PSD guys who were assigned to CENTCOM who were non SOF members who were using Sig 552's and M-4's to protect certain high ranking officers in the early stages of OEF. Other than that I have not heard of any USSOF using any 552's on the battlefields of Iraq or Afghanistan.

    I thought I saw SEALs using those rifles in a video game. Can't remember which game... Quite long ago... But that's of course, only in a video game, I saw it.

    Interesting enough until I was attached to a SEAL Team I didn't know they used Walther PPKs or the Sig P239s in high quantities. A number of guys were carrying 45ACPs, both 1911s and SIG220 that were personal purchase items. The internet would leave you to believe that the MP5 is a think of the past too. We had footlockers full of them, MP5A3s, SD, K, everything. Still getting a lot of use.

    I imagine MP5s with hollow-point rounds does a lot of damage.

    Here is a link to one of the Centcom guys I was telling you about. They used Sig's, MP-5's, and M-4's also.
