Way back at the very start of this year we spoke about the new SGR 556 that would be released by G&G, a model that promised to be a remarkable AEG boasting G&Gs absolute newest tech including their much-awaited G3 TECHNOLOGY which meant their very first SPLIT GEARBOX DESIGN!

Also featuring G&Gs new optical selector switch module, a feature allowing an adjustable trigger to travel to one of THREE levels, it also promised to add a pre-cocking mode that could be programmed by the trigger or wireless programming remote control.

With a true quick-spring-change and an easy quick-change MOSFET module it offered a system where new modules could be dropped in for easy maintenance or replacement. The innovative hop-up adjustment we were told would be at the sharp end like some of their GBBs, and a built-in empty chamber/power cut-off would offer even more in-game fun!

With a CNC-machined M-LOK rail and receiver with front and rear flip-up sights, along with G&Gs latest GOS-V8 buttstock to provide ample battery space for big-capacity batteries, the SGR 556 promised to be quite the rifle, with the potential to elevate G&G AEGs to the next level…

And yes, it does, and it provides ALL of those things as we’ve had one in test for quite a while now and we’ll be continuing to put the SGR 556 through its paces before we drop our review in ISSUE 154 on 15 September!

Watch this space… there’s MUCH MORE to come!
