  1. Sig 716 Tread Charging Handle issue

    SIG Sauer Rifles
    New 716 Tread shoots great! However, it comes with a typical crappy Sig charging handle, so I bought a Radian Raptor AR10/SR25 and it will not work. When properly installed with bolt and in all the way it binds and will not move until you finger the bolt and remove it first - then charging...
  2. SIG 716 Patrol full-auto ?

    SIG Sauer Rifles
    Hey, I was wondering if the 716G2 Patrol version offered for Military/LE clients is select-fire capable or not? There's surprisingly little information regarding that on the SIG official site (or maybe I'm just bad at looking for it). Thanks in advance!
  3. Sig 716 Patrol

    SIG Sauer Rifles
    I recently purchased a 716 Patrol brand new. I filled the mag with ammo and pulled the charging handle to load one into the chamber, I pulled the trigger, and "click".... So I attempted to pull the charging handle back to clear the chamber and I cannot pull it back. It's like the gun froze up...
  4. 716's FTF caused by too stiff of extractor spring?

    SIG Sauer Rifles
    I decided to take the rest of the ZQI ammo that bought a few weeks ago to work on the 716 and see if I can come up with any solutions for the folks that are having problems with theirs. Mine works with hand loads, but has not had great success with factory ammo. I looked in the chamber and...

    SIG Sauer Rifles
    Hello all, new to these forums and a new owner of a SIG 716 as well. I have a question about the 716 gas valve. I've searched everywhere and haven't found an answer. The manual states that the valve should freely turn between normal and adverse, but that the detent has to be pressed to...

    SIG Sauer Rifles" This is my new 716 Patrol rifle that was just sent back to SIG for feeding/accuracy problem. I received it back today. Despite the detailed letter I sent along with the rifle describing the problem and asking that they not just polish the feed ramps and ship...

  9. installing magpul prs on sig 716 patrol

    SIG Sauer Rifles
    i've seen this question asked a few times and the common response is in addition to the magpul prs stock to get a full length rifle tube, 308 buffer and 308 buffer spring from brownells or midway. sounds simple but it wont cycle. i believe the bolt carrier on the sig 716 is longer than that of a...

    Ammo and Reloading
    Is it normal for a Sig 716 to be denting brass at the edge like this? Almost every round is like this out of 40 rounds fired. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  13. Which optic for my 716?

    Gun Gear
    Hey guys, I just picked up a Sig 716 and still have about $1,000 to spend on a decent optic. I'm looking at the Eotech HHS-II and the Trijicon SRS. I'm leaning towards the Eotech for the magnifier part of it but the Trijicon has it's benefits too. I guess I can't go wrong with either but with...

    SIG 716 Flat Dark Earth (see below) And here come the long guns! Well...some of them aren't so long, as Sig is really increasing their availability of short-barreled versions of their most popular rifles. In fact, there are so many variations that a full picture catalog would be overwhelming...
