Arriving in the mail for review today was SIG Sauer MCX Rattler Canebrake. Thanks to SIG’s fantastic customer service team, I was able to get this gun promptly and I can’t thank them enough. Now, let’s take a closer look at the newest addition to the MCX lineup.
Right out of the box the first thing that stands out is the color. It’s a lighter sandy color that I think looks fantastic. Inherent from the rest of the SIG Rattler family is the folding pistol brace with a nice mixture of black and sand colors.
New to the Canebrake is the over-sized M-LOK rail. This retains features like the QD attachment points found on previous models.
Features like the flared Magwell and ambidextrous controls carry from the Rattler family as well. The suppressor ready rail is robust without adding a ton of extra weight.
For those not familiar with the Rattler brace, it does fold open and can be used as directed comfortably.
Simply push the strap back into the brace and the two halves fold back together.
New on the Canebrake is the straight cut trigger. The TiN coating on the trigger is incredibly cool and matches the receiver color perfectly.
SIG was kind enough to include one of their new Solar ROMEO4T optics as well for this review. Out of the box, it was crisp, and I can’t wait to see how it performs outdoors.
Underneath the new over-sized rail is the new faux suppressor. This mimics the weight of SIG’s SRD762 silencer. This way your gun won’t feel overly cumbersome with a future suppressor installed, and provides shielding from the blast of the tucked 5.5″ barrel. Underneath the rail is incredibly spacious, and will fit silencers up to 2″ in diameter. The Rattler Canebrake ships with Magpul’s new 300 Blackout P-MAG to top everything off.
Thanks for reading, and big thank you to SIG Sauer for sending this over for review!
