I know brother - that made my evening!
You know me on the SIG issue, I'm sure the shed heads have been smoking some of the good stuff, because all they have done is run SIG into the ground. I'll SBR my P556 when I can, but all I wanted was a direct replacement for my SIG SG552-SP and a SIG SG551 SWAT. But no, psychedelic colours, 1911s, beavertails on P-series pistols and another AR variant are the way to go for SIG. Originality and innovation... long gone (I think ever since they discontinued the P226 ST/P220 ST models really).
I used to think the bulk would be an issue as well. I didn't like the chunky look of it, but I can tell you that it is extremelly deceiving on the FN. You would be amazed at how light the rifle really is and it was really easy to present and shoulder, and it is more comfortable than I had imagined/expected it to be. The barrel is thin, which is why I would prefer a heavy barrel, but this in an SBR form would be tits. I wouldn't mind a 14.5-inch heavy barrel FDE version, along with a black +-10.5-inch SBR.
I have to sell my body to little old ladies in retirement villages to start getting financing on my LWRCI needs, let alone sell my left ball for an FN later down the road. *S*
