Sig Sauer’s Newest Rifle… …The TREAD.


    Late August of 2018 I had the good fortune to visit Sig Sauer in New Hampshire for a 2 day media event. There I was given a first look at Sig Sauer’s newest AR-15 Rifle, The TREAD.

    What?! Another AR on the market? Stay with me here guys, I think they have really approached this one the right way. With The TREAD they have created a really solid entry level 5.56mm / .223 rifle. And on top of that, they have a bunch of turn key components specifically for their new rifle. All of the components are made so that the layman, getting into the AR game, can easily modify their rifle without being a armorer or requiring any special tools. This is pretty cool.

    I will say I am pretty impressed with The TREAD as an entry level rifle. For something that will come in at around $799, there is a lot of value there. I got to spend the day with it on the range and put about 400 rounds through it. The rifle is a solid shooter.

    If you are in the market for a turn key AR-15 rifle, it might be worth taking a look at The TREAD.

    Hi! I’m Ivan,

    I grew up spending a lot of time outdoors. Lots of backpacking and camping trips as well as extensive international travel… Eventually I landed in the Marine Corps in the late 90’s, spending my time in the infantry. After a hiatus from the military to race the Baja 1000 a couple times, I got myself another DD-214 with more time spent in the Air Force. Departing that I wound up with large metropolitan Police Department for a spell, and eventually landed in the Security Contracting world.

    The one constant through all of these experiences was gear and weapons. From rifles, pistols, plate carriers, to holsters, to tac-lights to hard shells… Having spent time in a lot of environments and with the opportunity to field a lot of equipment, I have grown fond of well made gear and firearms.

    I figured I would share some of the knowledge and experience. So here we are…
