Here are the Sigs available at my LGS. Run the webpage translator. Click on each gun to learn more. Look how expensive they are over here. It is crazy. I like the Sport 550 and desert patrol. I believe all products are available in the US too.

This is the AR I own...

The 716 is on its way . Thanks for all the replies that convinced me.

These are its younger brothers, the M400 and 516 which were my "test the waters" for SIG rifles. They have Sig CP1 scopes which are plenty fine for my needs (target range only, no egressing, ingressing, combat or ABC drills for this old man ). I do have the stock handguard for the M400 which I have not attached yet. I'll eventually replace the rails on both with the non-railed handguard to save a pound or two. Now if only I could get the handguard in walnut :>.

I love my 716. Never had any problems with it even shooting crappy ammo. There has been discussion of generation 1 and 2, but Sig said there is no such thing as a gen.2 716." there have been some changes through time but nothing that would warrant a gen.2 title." There is a gen.1 and 2 in the 516, but not the 716. At least that's what they told me. He could be smokin crack though. It's really a great rifle. I put the UBR on mine and with a 2 1/2" buffer, I was able to keep the flat spring. You can't change the hand-guard, but there's no need to. It's got a nice one. I switched to the RRA two stage trigger and it's a lot smoother. Stock is a little gritty. Running a Leupold Mark AR 3-9 I'm taking out soda cans at 400 yds. with cheap lead tip ammo. For some reason their bolt uses gas rings that do not serve a purpose according to Sig. Maybe a type of bearing or guide? I went with a McFarland one piece just to make sure it would never break. Sig said I could probably remove them and it wouldn't matter, I'd rather not experiment with that on my rifle.
I've been on a search trying to find out if there is a 20" barrel I could put on it, but nobody knows. Not even Sig. They don't have any information on any aftermarket parts for it, so let the forums be your friend.
Congrats on your new 716. Enjoy.

I have the 716 and love it. No failures or issues at all after 300 rnds.

Default It's here :)

Got it in yesterday.. Unfortunately I'm travelling over the next two weeks so won't have a chance to shoot her until end of October. Waaah.

I'll post some pics later today (Note: She looks remarkably similar to the pics on the Intarweb but this one is mine).
