The SIG 716 is the new piston operated 7.62x51mm / .308 Win. rifle from Sig Sauer.
The rifle will be offered in four configurations:
- Tactical Patrol (12.5″ barrel, almost certainly only on offer to law enforcement and military)
- Patrol (16″ barrel)
- Precision Marksman (16″ barrel)
- Precision Sniper (20″ barrel)
Every model is equipped with free-floating quad rail and chrome-lined barrels. The Marksmen models feature heavy match barrels. The non-marksmen models come with backup iron sights. The 517 makes use of Armalite’s AR-10 Gen II magazine.
According to pizzigr1 at AR15.com, Sig are using Armalite AR-10 Bolt Carrier Groups (BCG).
