    SIG SAUER 716 Question

    Anyone have any experience with the SIG SAUER 716? Specifically is it a proprietary SIG SAUER weapon or is it a genuine AR10 with compatible/interchangeable parts with other AR10 rifles as in the bolt carrier, barrels and such? Impressions on accuracy and reliability would also be appreciated.

    I think it is a piston gun. So my opinion is no, it's not a standard AR-10.
    It is surely true that you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink. Nor can you make them grateful for your efforts.

    Correct it is and I get that pistons are proprietary. But the rest of the gun can be standard configuration, as in those that are converted to piston from DI. The barrel bolt carrier, trigger etc. can be interchanged. That is the focus of my question if I can use standard AR 10 parts to upgrade or repair the 716 SIG SAUER. If not it kind of undermines one of the benefits of an AR in my mind and pocket book.

    Damn you are right typo, my bad wonder if that is why I am not getting much response. Maybe I should repost my question with the correct model number

    Thanks appreciate your consideration and help. I see it is corrected in my OP but the title still reads 176 can that be corrected? Or this thread deleted? Hate to clog up the forum with redundant questions but don't want to push it asking you to go through a bunch of hassle to correct my error. So maybe deleting this thread and reposting it would be the easiest solution?
