    Did they sign some kind of contract with Troy Industries?

    That is exactly what is missing from the AR15 market... not.

    I guess they hope to capitalize on the SIG name to sell rifles. Now a 55x series type upper for a AR lower, that might be interesting.

    Ultra gay and lame especially with the billet lower. They just can't get it figured out.

    Releasing a 7" gun proves further they don't have a clue.

    Wow. What the hell is going on over at SIG. Just make the SG551 and stop being stupid. And that shitty mag is still part of the deal.

    Is this a concession that the 556 was a stupid idea? If you can beat em, join em, type thing...

    Here is more info:

    The SIG516 Tactical Rifle line has three different models:

    * SIG516 PDW : 7" barrel. A personal defense weapon (pictured above).
    * SIG516 CQB : 10" barrel. A Colt M4 Commando equvelent.
    * SIG516 BASELINE CARBINE : 14.5" barrel. A M4 Carbine equvelent.
    * SIG516 Patrol. 16" barrel.
    * SIG516 Tactical Marksman: 16" barrel A squad level sniper / designated marksmen rifle.
    * SIG516 Precision Marksman: 20" barrel. Possibly a true sniper rifle, or designated marksmen rifle.

    They are all piston operated and feature an adjustable gas regulator like the Ruger SR-556.


    Who the hell cares? where is this, that's what I want to know?

    A 551 would be nice.

    My guess is that they were starting to get some market feed back that SW could sell them M&P handguns and AR rifles in package deals. If that is true, I wonder how Glock will respond? Just a guess on my part.

    Another day, another AR manufacture...I guess this shows how much faith Sig has in their 556 rifles.
