The long wait has ended! We finally have the answer to the last two chapters in the Sig Sauer MCX Virtus saga. In Chapter 3 of the series dubbed “Vehicle Assault”, we see the suppressed barrel swapped in favor of an unsuppressed. Really not much changed otherwise. BORING! The real fun comes in “Tango Down” which is the fourth and final chapter of the series.
What we are treated to is the MCX Rambler SBR. The Rambler features Sig’s 5-1/2 inch barrel with a PDW upper and an “ultra-thin” folding aluminum stock. Sitting at an overall length of 23-1/2 inches this platform could be really good for those out there who prefer a rifle for home defense. Is that a thing? I mean if you need to sling 300 blk in your home and use a 30 round you must be El Chapo or selling secrets to the Russians and on the run. Anyways, in the video we see the Rambler stowed into a messenger bag. Yes, your standard cross chest little messenger bag. Again, if this is a thing for you, why are you concealed carrying a 300 blk? You could be a bank robber… Can I be an accessory for this?
The next platform to be released is the Rattler PSB measuring in at 19.3 inches long overall. Combined that with the 3-position telescoping pistol brace and you have got yourself a mighty fine little weapon. Not really practical for most of us out there but does that really matter? I’m sure pistol style AR fans all over are going to drool at this one. Oh yeah, yes it too is chambered in 300 blk. Both variants of this ever-evolving rifle weight in at about 5 pounds.
Going back to that home defense topic — This weapon really actually would be a great weapon all jokes aside. The length is perfect and the ability to have a suppressor makes it a winner. I don’t know about you but I like my hearing and shooting a .300 blk indoors would definitely leave you with permanent damage.
This four-part series has me wanting to spend money for sure. The handguards range from $159 to $189 and the barrel will set back $612. Ranging in price from $2233 to $2727, it doesn’t make it a definitive yes for me. I see the appeal, “quick-change” barrel, M-LOK free floating handguard, the ability to run suppressed or not. I will say the series was amazing and Sig really spent time planning out the story of each chapter.
