The SG 550 (the Swiss service rifle) doesn't have any appreciable differences from just about any other rifle firing the same ammunition (this is the big ticket when it comes to evaluating most small arms these days, especially if the weapon in question is firing a relatively heavy, small-diameter round such as commonly seen in 5.56x45mm rifles; ammunition quality can be everything, and given modern manufacturing techniques, is often the deciding factor), and is outperformed by many of its contemporaries; most Swiss troops don't actually get much rifle training, either. The vast bulk of personnel, active and reserve, only fire their rifles about twice a year, depending on their occupation. For the majority, "marksmanship training" amounts to a phase that runs out to about a week long, a few hours out of the day, culminating in a fairly simple qualification at the modest distance of 300 meters, which is just about easy as pie to accomplish even for brand-new shooters, given solid instruction.
