The Sieg automatic rifle was a bullpup battle rifle designed by James E. Sieg of the US Coast Guard. The weapon, introduced to the public in 1946, was chambered in the .30-06 round, fed from 20 round magazines and is capable of firing around 650-700RPM in full automatic. It came with a unique muzzle compensator that can be turned off for use with a flash hider or grenade launcher without interfering when also installing a bayonet. Recoil gently threw the barrel of the Sieg rifle downward, not upward. When tested at Fort Benning, it had effective results. The compensator was extremely effective as it enabled the user to fire the rifle with one hand.
