The SG 550 is based upon the old SG 540 used by the Swiss Armed Forces. Firing the standardized 5.56x45mm NATO rounds, the SG 550 was designed in the 1970s, it started production in 1986 and was adopted in the 90s to become the Swiss Armed Forces standard service rifle.
The G&G GS 550 is almost an exact replica of the real steel SG550, with the main difference being that the GS550 fire 6mm plastic pellets, whilst the SG550 fires 5.56x45mm NATO rounds!
the GS550 features a very solidly built body, constructed out of metal with ABS furniture; it doesn't rattle at all. The GS550 sports a folding stock, an integral bipod, and imitation night sights that really does improve target acquisition in low light conditions. The bolt handle is capable of locking back when adjusting the hop up, the trigger guard is able to swing both left and right for easier access to the trigger when wearing gloves; The G&G GS550 comes stock with a real-type mag, which holds 30rds and feeds each and every one!
