    Sig 516

    I was reading the Jan. issue of American Rifleman and the cover is a Sig 516. Like we don't have enough options already right? But in the magazine it shows an MSRP of $1,300. The gun basically sounds like the Ruger SR556 which has an MSRP of $1,995. Is this a typo or is Sig really gonna offer the gun at that price? If so they may dominate the market for piston ARs.

    Sig has been really stepping up to take market share, in things they werent offering before. I am sure it will be done right too.

    $1300. I'll be looking into that as well.

    Sig 556 is the finest Patrol Rifle available in 5.56. IMHO.

    This peaked my interest as well although I just picked up a CMMG gas piston AR for $900. I noted the Troy sights shown on the cover picture but I didn't see them listed as coming with the Sig in the specs section. They do come with the Ruger which would bring the price difference a bit closer.

    I personally didn't like the feel of the Ruger trigger and would like to see what's up with the Sig. Anyone know when these will be coming out?
