Sig 556 SWAT Patrol or Sig 516 Patrol?
 
So I'm going to buy a Sig rifle but I was wanting some opinions on which one I should get. Which one would you recommend: Sig 556 SWAT Patrol or Sig 516 Patrol? I would like to eventually add a 10.5" barrel for use with my suppressor.

Here's the Sig 556 SWAT Patrol rifle

Here's the Sig 516 Patrol rifle

I shoot pistols left handed and my long guns right handed. I'm looking for a piston AR-15 platform that isn't as pricey as the LWRC rifles. I hear the Sigs use the same piston system as LWRC for a fraction of the cost.

are you right eye dominant?

Have you considered Addax Tactical? They make real nice pistons. I believe the Sig is hampered by a lot of proprietary parts.

I thought the 556 was proprietary whereas the 516 was more AR-15 friendly.

AgentTikki 06-30-2012 08:18 PM

Besides the obvious (piston and gas block) I believe the barrel nut is proprietary requiring an expensive tool, as are the hand guards. IIRC alot of people were having trouble trying to change or remove their handguards, so you are probably stuck with what it comes with. The bolt, and carrier and extractor are also proprietary also though they may be interchangeable with LWRC's designs.

Gotcha. I read on AR15.com that even though the Sig BCG is supposedly proprietary, you can still throw in a standard AR-15 and it will work.
