This is an absolutely great rifle. I have put about 300 rounds through it so far, and it is very accurate (better than me) and an absolute joy to shoot. Both of my young grandsons have a blast shooting it as well, as there is virtually no recoil due to the round and the rifle's heft. It doesn't seem to like the really cheap ammo, as it jamed two rounds out of 100 when I used it. But when using quality ammo like Federal Gold Medal or Black Hills, it works perfectly. I changed out the Magpul MOE stock for a ACS-L, as I like the bigger cheek weld, but that was the only thing I changed on it. It operates very cleanly as advertised with the piston operation. I highly recommend this model and brand and you definitely get the best price and service from Buds

Went out and shot 55gr 223, which this gun was supposed to have a problem with according to some forums. It performed flawlessly. I didnt even clean it when I got it or anything. The trigger, which was also supposed to be sub par was awesome. Short, clean, brake. Charging handle wobbled side to side. My first Ar so maybe others are the same...? Buy the 516, its awesome.

Great Rifle! Paid $1,264 here at buds, but that was before El Presidente made his remarks. Very accurate! .5 MOA with 77gr Nosler Custom Copetition reloads 2.260 OAL, using a 4x ACOG on a rest @ 100yds, maybe even better with a higher power scope. Shipping was fast. Mine came with the red dot. I have 2 acogs, 2 eotechs, and an aimpoint compm4 and the included red dot isn't as good as these (obviously) but it's still a pretty sharp and small dot in comparison to other stuff out there. No irons but not that big a deal, Irons that aren't range adjustable and calibrated for your barrel length and load aren't useful out far anyway. Had some ejection and feeding issues with the Russian stuff but never with the reloads which I've shot far more of. Very clean in the carrier area after shooting, lube doesn't dry out nearly as fast. At the time of writing $1562 is a lot more than I paid, but for this kind of accuracy and reliability (with good ammo, Russian stuff aside) its worth it. It's well made, slop free, comes in a good configuration, and it takes notice at the range.

Very pleased! I wanted an AR, but wasn't sure which make & model to go with. When I saw the reviews for the SIG 516 I knew it was what I wanted - a Cadillac AR that I didn't have to piece together myself. I haven't shot it a great deal to date, but what I've done has gone really well, and it is also a sweet looking gun!

This is one of the nicest AR Style weapons I have seen. I would recommend this to anyone. Buds Gun Shop sells it for about $300 cheaper than what I have seen in the retail world. If you are looking for a reliable AR this is defiantly the best one I have seen. The reliability of this weapon is beyond compare.

This Sig 516 is a well design Piston Riffle. So far no problem at all. Fitted with Nikon Scope, sight it in and always on the mark. The 100 Yds has a group of quarter size using Federal XM193 55 gr FMJBT. Will try longer yardage. Cartridge makes difference in terms of Consistency. Independent Cartridges opens up to 5" groupings at 100 yds. Solidly built to last. I like the Sling design allowing carry and shooting in so many holds. See torture tests by Sig on YouTube.
