The SIG SG 510 or Sturmgewehr 57 is a selective fire battle rifle manufactured by Schweizerische Industrie Gesellschaft (now SAN Swiss Arms) of Switzerland. It uses a similar roller-delayed blowback system to the H&K G3 and CETME rifles. It also has a SAW counterpart akin to the American Stoner 63.

The SIG SG 510-1 entered service in the Swiss Army with the designation Fass 57 (French, for Fusil d' Assaut 57) or Stgw 57 (German for Sturm Gewehr 57).

The Sturmgewehr 57/SIG SG 510-1 was adopted for Swiss military service in 1957 and has been replaced by the lighter SIG SG 550 in year 1990, although some reservists used it several years longer.
