Sig Sauer may not be a name that many people outside of firearms-oriented groups know about, but the company has earned a lot of respect from firearms enthusiasts.
Among the variety of guns that they offer, an interesting firearm of theirs is the MCX Rattler Canebrake. This gun uses an AR-15 mag type and is chambered in .300 AAC Blackout (also called 300 BLK or 7.62x35mm) which was designed for use in the M4 carbine which is now a common combat rifle for American troops. Also of note is that this gun uses a gas piston operating system.
As you can see in the picture above, this is an eye catching gun, but you may be asking yourself, “Is this a good choice for my next purchase?” Well, here is Navy SEAL veteran Eli Crane’s thoughts on this firearm:
If you have ever shot one, especially while suppressed this will not come as any surprise. It is small and very light and manageable, whisper-quiet and deadly accurate at short and mid-range. My particular setup, which has become the most requested and favorite weapon for friends and guests to shoot, sports an SRD762 suppressor by SIG and also a Romeo4S red dot optic and an Inforce light to brighten things up a bit when needed. The Canebrake comes with an inert or dummy suppressor out of the box, which gives it a great look but more importantly just makes it suppressor ready as soon as you have purchased and finished your NFA paperwork.
I call this gun my “John Wick” gun. Though this one was never featured in the film series it makes me feel like John Wick when I’m on the range. If you haven’t seen the films I’ll give you an idea of what I’m talking about. Mr. John Wick, played by Keanu Reeves doesn’t miss and makes pinpoint accuracy seem like a walk in the park. This is exactly how I feel as I pie around a barricade or zero in on a hostage plate affixed to one of my Zimco target silhouettes. What I’ve also noticed is that it’s not just me either.
Crane also notes that the recoil is milder than you would expect, and, when suppressed, this is a surprisingly quiet gun.
So, if you’re on the hunt for another firearm that is bound to terrify anyone who voted for Biden and Harris just because it “looks scary” (and for all the other reasons mentioned above), Sig Sauer’s MCX Rattler Canebrake may be one to consider.
