  2. FosTech Echo II with the SIG 516

    SIG Sauer Rifles
    Anybody has experience using the FosTech Echo II trigger (or any good binary trigger brand) with the SIG 516? I looked up in FosTech's website and it says you need a full auto bolt carrier, with a note that "popular piston AR-15 brands work too". Anybody has ever used a binary trigger with the...

  6. Sig 516 Emperor Scorpion anyone?

    SIG Sauer Rifles
    Sig recently came out with the PM400 PSB in the Spartan finish, which is cool on its own, but there are next to no accessories that would even come close to looking good with this finish. I propose Sig come out with an Emperor Scorpion version of the M400 or better yet, a 516 in that finish. I...

  10. 516 5.56 Buffer spring and weight tuneing

    SIG Sauer Rifles
    So my local gun shop guy talks so much to everyone about how all ARs are over gassed and so just swapping the buffer spring to a red extra power spring to help waste less energy in the gun and also provide a more gentle recoil. He was also saying swapping to a heavier buffer would probably help...

    New Member Introductions
    I came across this forum and started reading some of the posts and they all sounded very intelligent and helpful. I have owned a couple different Sigs: 1911 scorpion, SP2022, mosquito and my latest Sig purchase is a 516 Patrol in FDE. Now, right out of the box I had an issue- it was dirty...

    I might be the only one who wants one, but I recently purchased a new 516 and it came with the MOE stock.
