The SIG SG 510 or Sturmgewehr 57 is a battle rifle manufactured by Schweizerische Industrie Gesellschaft (now SAN Swiss Arms) of Switzerland. It is based on the same roller-delayed blowback system used in the H&K G3 and CETME rifles. It is rugged and reliable in harsh climatic conditions.

Overview

The SIG SG 510 is in service in the Swiss Army with the designation F ass 57 (French, for Fusil d' Assaut 57) or Stgw 57 (German for Sturm Gewehr 57). It can launch rifle grenades from the muzzle.

A powerful and precise, but bulky and heavy weapon, it has been gradually replaced by the lighter SIG SG 550, and is rare, but still in active service (only for reservists which have not had a chance to be upgraded).

The Sturmgewehr 57/SIG SG 510-1 was adopted for Swiss military service in 1957. The SG 510-4 has been adopted by the Chilean and Bolivian armed forces. It is reported that the Chilean SG 510-4 was actually manufactured in Italy by Beretta under contract to SIG.

Although the SIG SG 510 is officially classed as a Battle rifle, It is described by a number of users as a light machine gun/designated marksman weapon due to the weight/accuracy/firepower for a standard service rifle.

For anti-personnel use the Stgw.57 typical consistent accuracy range is 600 m (656 yd).

Every Stgw.57 can be equipped with a Kern 4x24 telescopic sight made specially for the Stgw.57 or a night vision scope.

Development

The SG 510 derived from the AM55 battle rifle during the 1950s, More info soon.

Variants



  • 510-1, Standard Swiss service rifle.

  • 510-2, Lightened variant of the standard rifle.[1]

  • 510-3, 7.62 x 39 variant with shorter barrel but found no sales.

  • 510-4, 7.62 NATO variant used by Bolivia and Chile.

Upon completion of their military service, members of the Swiss armed forces can obtain ownership of their personal SG 510 rifle by paying an administrative fee. These "civilianised" rifles are converted to a semiautomatic only configuration. As of 2007, around 40 percent of discharged soldiers choose to retain their weapon, and the going rate for civilianised SG 510 rifles on the private weapons market is reported to vary between 40 and 500 Swiss francs.[2]
