    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.
