Sig Sauer MCX Virtus Patrol 5.56mm Semi-Automatic Rifle with Flat Dark Earth (FDE) Finish
The MCX Virtus FDE in 5.56 NATO is a platform engineered and built to be the most adaptive, accurate, and longest-lasting rifle available. The original SIG MCX rifle, conceived for the demands of the Special Operations community, quickly became known in the firearms world because of its durable performance and end-user configurability. To enhance the design, SIG received feedback from Special Operations units throughout the world and made the most advanced rifle ever built, even better. The result is the MCX VIRTUS.
In ancient Rome, “Virtus” stood for virtue, courage, bravery and excellence. The MCX VIRTUS embodies the spirit of the professional users who have depended on and continue to rely on the MCX in the field. The added features and enhancements of the MCX VIRTUS include increasing accuracy, delivering additional modularity and providing a service life of more than 20,000 rounds, all without a single part replacement. Between barrels, stocks, handguards and colors, the MCX VIRTUS can be configured over 500 different ways for any possible need or mission.
The 16-inch cold hammer forged barrel features an advanced interchangeable design and can be exchanged at the operator level. To increase accuracy, the barrels are of a heavier contour profile. Also assisting with accuracy is the new SIG Matchlite Duo trigger, a two-stage unit that provides the shooter with a crisp, clean feel. A new tapered bolt lug design results in smoother cycling and extends the bolt life. Capping off the upgrades are eight (8) new free-floating M-LOK handguards available in standard and suppressor-ready configurations.
