The CR-553 (SIG SG-553 formally) is a modern tactical carbine manufactured in Switzerland. The SG 553 is the shortened "commando" variant of its full-sized bigger brother the SG 550, which is reputed to be an excellent close quarters combat weapon for elite paramilitary teams across the globe. It features a 8.9 Inch barrel, aluminum receiver, steel bolt, plastic grip, handguard and a steel buttstock and it holds 20 5.56x45mm NATO rounds.
A carbine used by several federal law enforcement agencies.
While short ranged and slow-firing compared to other assault rifles of an equal level, the CR-553 has more stopping power then the other rifles. Combined with its relatively high accuracy, one shot from this weapon can be more effecient than several from a different AR. Its relatively small magazine does mean it has less shots to begin with, so making each one count is important. It can be improved further with ammunition and extended magazines.
How to ObtainEdit
It can be scavenged during missions that are level 19 or higher.
