    Closer look at the SIG 516...Still not impressed

    I just cant muster any enthusiasm for this thing, but here is better, closer look at the SIG 516.

    I have yet to hear why anyone should get a SIG 516 over an MRP.

    I sent SIG an email asking some very pointed questions. They have yet to respond.

    Looks good, well other than the purple riser. Can't tell from the pics, do you know if top of the gas block and the quadrail are on the same plane ? The pics from SHOT and SIGSauers web site it is not. After the runaround I had with my SIG556 Classic I think I'm going to sit this one out for awhile.

    Yep thats about right. Not knocking SIGs products as I am very pleased with my pistols, but the BS I got with my 556.

    cool looking tail of carrier, looks water drain and fouling friendly.

    sling mount on lower looks like it'd be in the way of both charging and safety, awesome.

    odd barrel profile

    On the plus side, at least they had the brains to stick Magpul MOEs on there.
