Range Video: SIG Sauer MCX Virtus

posted on January 22, 2018
Versatility and modularity have always been the hallmarks of the MCX rifle lineup, and SIG Sauer enhanced these characteristics by enhancing a number of features on the gun, creating the all-new MCX Virtus. 

The Virtus is equipped with a heavier barrel in order to enhance accuracy and durability. Accuracy and precision are also enhanced through the inclusion of the company's all-new Matchlite Duo trigger, a two-stage design that offers a crisp pull. The bolt itself also underwent a redesign in order to diminish wear and lengthen service life.

The already-modular MCX became even more modular with the Virtus upgrade, allowing consumers to choose between eight separate M-Lok handguard arrangements. Different-length barrels are also available and are designed to be easily interchangeable by owners.
