For 2022, SIG Sauer announced it would offer its MCX-SPEAR to the commercial market in a semi-automatic variant, giving firearm enthusiasts a chance to experience the company's Next Generation Squad Weapon (NGSW) submission for themselves. The new rifle is chambered in the company's revolutionary 277 SIG FURY chambering, which is designed with a hybrid cartridge case that accommodates higher chamber pressures for greater downrange performance.

“This is a rare opportunity for passionate consumers to own a piece of history,” said Ron Cohen, president & CEO, SIG Sauer, Inc. “This first production run MCX-SPEAR, and all of the revolutionary technology behind its development, is being offered to the commercial market in a configuration that is a near match to our NGSW-R submission. Further, this is the only rifle submission to the program that is designed and engineered in the United States by a company with the manufacturing scale and proven adherence to military-grade quality requirements–which is a tremendous source of pride for everyone at SIG SAUER.”

The SIG SAUER MCX-SPEAR was designed to provide infantry troops with a firearm capable of more stopping power, greater range and heightened accuracy over the current M4 platform in use by the U.S. military. The multi-caliber platform is capable of swapping between 277 SIG FURY, 6.5 Creedmoor and 7.62 NATO with just a simple barrel change, thereby heightening the adaptability of the system. These guns are also equipped with non-reciprocating charging handles at the side and rear of the gun, as well as a six-position folding stock, bilateral selector switch and magazine release, two-stage match trigger, two-position gas piston, free-floated M-Lok handguard and full-length Picatinny optics rail.

Each SIG Sauer MCX-Spear ships with two 20-round magazines. This first-run, special-edition rifle carries a suggested retail price of $7,999. For more information, visit
