Before making the decision, consider also that model 516 is a hybrid. If you are not fully committed to the rear charging handle, the telescopic adjustable stock, and the recoil buffer in the rear, consider the SIG 556. Same gas piston system with the same regulator, takes AR mags, but has a side charging handle, a side folding buttstock, and the recoil assembly up front. To some people the SIG 5xx shoots better with less perceived recoil. I think it is mostly because of the weight shifted toward the muzzle, which is favorable to bench rest shooting. Many civilian shooters like to fire their rifles from a supported position. (I appreciate the balance of the original AR that feels more natural in a dynamic situation, but this is not the topic here) A rational choice can be made only by the individual shooter who understands his own style and needs.
