SIG SG510

Switzerland began to experiment with intermediate cartridges before the World War 2 and, being a neutralcountry, closely watched the developments made during and after the war. Being entirely satisfied with the power and accuracy of its 7.5 mmGP11 (7.5×55) cartridge, the Swiss army tried to achieve a full power selective-fire rifle. After a couple of false starts, first with the gas-operated Sk-46 self-loading rifle, and secondly with the most unusual AK-53 blow-forward design, the famous SIG company finally produced a weapon which satisfied the Army in 1955.
This was the 7.5 mm AM-55, a retarded blowback design, developed under the leadership of the Rudolf Amsler. The basic principles of the action were borrowed from German WW2 period Mauser 'Gerät 06H' and Stg.45(M)assault rifles, but with much altering involved. In 1957 the Swiss army adopted the AM-55 as the Schturmgewehr-57, or Stgw.57 for short. Madebetween 1957 and 1983, the Stgw.57 represented one of the finest and most expensive automatic rifles ever issued to any army in the world.Chambered for full power 7.5 x 55 GP11 ammunition, the Stgw.57 provides long range accurate shooting in semi-automatic mode, necessary for thetypical Swiss mountain country, in combination with significant fullauto firepower, thanks to its relatively heavy weight, integral bipodand a shrouded barrel. In the modified form, known as the SIG-510, this design was relatively successful, being sold to various South Americancountries, most notably Bolivia and Chile, chambered for 7.62 mm NATO ammunition.
