SIG516PrecisionSniper18aBuilding on the success of their 556 series of rifles, Sig Sauer is adding some more models to their line of tactical rifles, and I have to say that I’m pretty jazzed up right now, especially about the Sig716.  I’ve been looking high and low for a great .308 MBR and this just might be the ticket!  The following informatin are taken directly from Press Releases issued by Sig Sauer.

EXETER, NH (January 2010) – SIG SAUER, the leading manufacturer of military, law enforcement, government, and commercial firearms will change your expectations of what a M16/AR-15 type rifle should be. SIG SAUER presents the long awaited SIG516 Tactical Rifle line for Law Enforcement Professionals and civilians. The SIG516 Tactical Rifle line is built with the tightest tolerances making these rifles some of the most accurate and durable M16/AR-15 type models on the market today.

The SIG516’s are all gas-piston operated with a 3-position (4-position optional) gas regulator – a design that keeps the receiver free of firing residue for optimum reliability under adverse conditions and extended firing. The SIG516 is available in both semi-auto and select fire variants. SIG516 select-fire versions (Law Enforcement only) include single-shot and fully automatic, with an optional 3-burst mode. The fire control/safety selector is an ambidextrous design for greater user control and improved safety.

All models, including the SIG516 7” Personal Defense Weapon (PDW), the SIG516 10” Close Quarters Battle (CQB), the SIG516 14.5” Tactical Patrol, the SIG516 16” Patrol, the SIG516 18” Precision Sniper and the SIG516 20” Precision Sniper, come standard with a free-floating, aluminum quad rail fore-end with four M1913 Picatinny rails for lighting and laser-mounted options. Barrels are chrome-lined and cold-hammer forged with a Nitride finish for extreme durability and corrosion resistance. The 18” and 20” Precision Sniper models feature heavy match barrels. The muzzle is threaded with a standard (0.5x28TPI) pattern to accommodate a wide variety of flash suppressors, muzzle brakes and sound suppressor devices. The lower receiver is machined from a 7075-T6 Aircraft grade aluminum forging. The upper receiver, machined from 7075-T6 aircraft grade aluminum provides an integral M1913 Picatinny rail to accommodate a wide range of optical sight solutions. The upper and lower receivers feature a black, hard-coat anodize finish. Optional back-up iron sights are available.
