  1. Parts list?

    SIG Sauer Rifles
    Ok I'm new ... and I've used the search function already. Does anybody have a parts list showing 716 to AR15 compatible parts? I.e the FCG is but the buffer spring is not (fir example). Also a similar list for 716 to the other AR10 style guns out there?
  2. Actual weight of Sig 716 DMR??

    SIG Sauer Rifles
    Hi. I have a Sig 716 Patrol FDE with a Leopold Mark 4 scope on it, and it is awesome and accurate. I had some FTF/FTE issues, and Sig fixed it with a newer design bolt. The entire rifle weighs 13 pounds with scope, brake, grip, and small flashlight. I want to buy a second 716, DMR model (I...
  3. New to Sig 716 platform

    New Member Introductions
    Hello all. I'm originally a Californian turned Texan since 1997 and will be forever more. I've had a SIG 716 in my sights for a while and saving up until I found my first sitting in a display case at Cabela's Gun Library. The price was right and my Cabela Club points were too and now she's got a...
  4. 716 Patrol - stuck safety switch

    SIG Sauer Rifles
    Howdy. I'm new to the AR platform and this forum but have been around pistols and standard rifles and shotguns for many years. I just bought a "fairly new" 716 Patrol from Cabela's out of their Gun Library. According to the guy who took the gun in, it was owned by a Sig rep. Besides a very...
  5. FTF Issues - 716 Patrol H18B-DMR

    SIG Sauer Rifles
    Greetings, I've had my 716 about 6 months. So far, I've put about 350 - 400 rds through it and have experienced random FTF's. I load my own ammunition and have found through trial and error that cases and necks must be resized even with new, store-bought cases. On the FTF, the round is stopped...

  7. SIG 716 heavy

    SIG Sauer Rifles
    I recently purchased a sig 716 heavy barrel 3 gun after my happiness with my 556 swat patrol. The question I have and haven't found a good answer for is, what ammo has performed the best for you? So far I have read pmc bronze has been a good winner but a lot of mixed reviews have bothered me...
  8. Sig 716 + JP Silent Captured Spring issues.

    SIG Sauer Rifles
    Many probably think the JP Silent spring is a gimmick but when it works, it's real nice. I have no issues with my 716 until I put in a JP Silent Captured Spring. BCG bounce galore! I've even purchased their spring kit and tried every spring they got. NG. The BCG bounce is so bad that the...
  9. Sig516 Stock

    SIG Sauer Rifles
    I might be the only one who wants one, but I recently purchased a new 516 and it came with the MOE stock. I have never been a fan of the MOE gear and would prefer the have the Sig crane stock that comes on the 716 and occasionally on some 516s. Does anybody know where I might be able to purchase...

  12. Tools to replace Buffer Tube, Stock on Sig716

    SIG Sauer Rifles
    All, The local gunsmith told me they were backed up for a month. I bought a MagPul PRS for my Sig716 Patrol. I picked up a tube, buffer, and new spring from Slash's Heavy Buffers. What tools do I need to remove the existing carbine tube and castle nut, and to install the new stock (besides...
