I've heard a few massive problems with the 556R that make me think it's kind of a terrible idea. Alloy receiver means you can't use standard steel AK magazines because they tear it up. Occasional weird hammer and headspace issues that make it a jam-o-matic. And the biggest problem is that it will not work properly with steel-cased ammo, which is what pretty much anybody in their right mind shoots. Overall, I'd avoid it. Especially considering the reputation SIG USA has.

Found a good little video concerning one of the Sig 556R's issues. He ends up getting rid of it.

The AR, in 223 wins nearly all the matches that it is allowed to enter, and many, many top operatives prefer it. If it was ANYTHING like being as unreliable, fragile, etc, as so many claim it is, the top hands would use something else. But they don't, they use the AR in 223. :-)
