Familiar handling, unfamiliar power, SIG SAUER has taken the proven features of the SIG516 and applied them into a potent AR-based rifle chambered in 7.62 NATO. Utilizing the tried and true Direct Impingement System, an M1913 Mil-Std rail, free-floating barrel, aluminum forend, and telescoping stock, the SIG716 is the rifle of choice when you require the power of a larger caliber carbine. Features include ambidextrous controls, a free floating M-LOK handguard, stainless steel barrel and micro gas block, 3-prong flash hider, polished single stage trigger and a Magpul collapsible buttstock.


  • Free Floating M-LOK Handguard
  • 2-Stage Match Trigger
  • Lightweight Direct Impingement Design
  • 1 20rnd Magpul Magazine
  • Stainless Steel Barrel

Section 922(b)(1) makes it unlawful for a licensee to sell any firearm other than a shotgun or rifle to any person under the age of 21.

    716i Tread - Good Rifle With A Few Quirks

    Posted by Chris on May 2nd 2022

    Overall I am quite happy with the rifle though there are a few things (good and meh) that ghouls be noted. The charging handle is specific to SIG so if you want an ambi charging handle you have to get a SIG specific one. Not really a big deal since the ambi SIG charging handle is nice, but it’s slightly frustrating you can’t just grab a radian or geissele off the shelf somewhere. The barrel is stamped for 7.62x51 however, according to SIG it is rated for 308 so that’s nice. Not entirely sure what is up with the trigger because the description says it’s a two stage match trigger but the one in mine is a single stage and 7-8 pounds for the pull weight. Probably going to change it out for a geissele sometime in the future since I have mine set up as a DMR. I’ve shot almost 500 rounds and have gotten hits on C-zone steel out to 1,100 yards with M80 ball (no malfunctions yet). The rifle grouped 2-3 inches at 100 yards with the M80 which seems average. Haven’t tried any match amp yet but given how it performed with M80 I would expect it to tighten up to an inch or so. Based on my experience I would recommend the rifle to anyone looking for a lightweight 308 but point out a few of the potential downsides.
