    I'm curious as to the stock trigger on the 716. Is it just a basic mil-spec, or something better? What are your impressions of the trigger?
    Feels like a standard GI trigger probably around 8# pull weight. Only gripe is the trigger and not having an ambi charging handle. I'm going to add the VG6 muzzle brake after I put a couple rounds down it. Just debating on purchasing that Sig BDX scope and rangefinder system.

    Weird about the charging handle. Thought they came with Sig's ambi charging handle.

    EDIT: No, they come with a standard charging handle that's still proprietary to the 716. Looks like you'll need to wait for Sig to get them back in stock, or add an extended latch.

    That's a good idea, can't wait to take it hunting this season.

    I just found out today that sights are proprietary. I plan on adding an optic anyway.

    What do you mean that the sights are proprietary? Are you saying that it doesn't come with a standard 1913 rail and you can't attach buis?

    Or are they a non-standard height? If truly proprietary, then that sucks.

    The rep said proprietary but it might just be a height issue. Magpul MBUS didn't line up.

    With what did they not line up? I just looked at a photo again, and there’s no fixed front sight. If the receiver and handguard picatinny are the same height, then any BUIS should work.

    It looked like there was a height difference between the front and rear sight. I'm going to put them back on and check again.
