FIRST LOOK: Sig Sauer MCX Rattler, the ‘World’s Smallest Rifle’

Recommended Posts

We recently got some exclusive test time with Sig Sauer’s latest rifle: The MCX Rattler.


It is one of, if not the shortest, AR platform rifles available to date with a sub-6-inch barrel. Designed as a compact close quarters rifle, it packs a punch. The MCX operating system allows firing while folded. Its stock provides access to all controls.

Available as an SBR, it will be available as an upper for any MCX lower. A proprietary gas block allows use in 300 BLK suppressed and unsuppressed, with both super and subsonic ammunition. A 5.56mm version will be available for unsuppressed fire only.


“Built for top-tier units, the short-stroke piston design eliminates the bugger tube, yet maintains familiar M4 controls,” according to Sig.


Spending time on the range with the MCX Rattler, mine was tested with both super and subsonic loads unsuppressed and it ran everything well. Accuracy was excellent at 50 yards on 4-inch round plates. Some full-auto time using 125 grain FMJ full power ammunition quickly explained the “rattler” moniker. It was a handful and some serious fun!

In order to protect our constitution and life as we know it, we decided to not be the silent majority anymore and pull our selves up by the bootstraps and make the world a better place. This website is to unite people like us, people who want to make a difference ... and do it the right way, Little did we know that in doing so we would create the number one militia community online. Here we are. Enjoy.
