I ordered my rifle with the hope that it would stand up to all that Sig is known to be...i own the 556 and now the 516, this rifle runs great, have run over 600 rounds of all the good and not so great ammo, the rifle has had no problems, if you want a weapon that has all the high end stuff with out the high cost this is it!!! buy it.

Great gun! Sig is definitely one of my favorite weapons manufactures out there. I've probably put a thousand rounds through my 516 now and not a single problem. The barrel is a little heavy, but after wearing 100lbs everyday for months at a time in Iraq and Afghanistan, I have no problem with it. Someone who wasn't in the military or law enforcement may not like this rifle due to it's weight. My suggestion is build the muscle to properly manipulate this weapon and you will not be disappointed. This rifle platform is great for customization. I have now put over $1200 worth of accessories on it and I absolutely love my rifle. Buy this rifle and buy it from BUDS!

The weapon came with Sig's red dot sight and the gas block out of alignment with the rail by about 1mm. I had hoped for the flip up sights and no red dot since I will add a Lucid HD7 later on and would enjoy plinking with Sig's iron sites. At any-rate, when I called Sig, Sig quoted me $169.00 for the flip up sights that their "new" guns come with nowadays like they were doing me a favor. Additionally, the weapon I received which was built on 5/21/2011 appears to have the old, heavier carrier. I'm sending the weapon back to have the barrel and gas block aligned with the upper receiver. I wish my experience had been better as thus far both the product as well as the customer support have missed my expectations.

I received my Sig 516 on 9/21/11 and the rifle came with flip up iron sights. No cheap red dot ... thank God. Took the 516 to the range yesterday and received many compliments on the fine quality, looks and workmanship of the rifle. It worked flawlessly. The only negative is that the Patrol came with a single stage trigger. I thought the 516 came with a two stage trigger...not so. I'm going to call Sig about the trigger switch. So therefore 4 out of 5 stars.

Picked up my 516 from the FFL on Sunday. Have not taken it to the range yet. Just to let everyone who is complaining about the red dot scope know, mine came with flip up iron sights instead of the Sig red dot. They look and feel similar to the Troy flip up battle sights but the windage dials (for the rear site) are different. I know of two other people who also picked up a 516 (not from Buds) and their rifles also came with iron sights.

All in all I like my Sig 516 but here are my gripes anyway. I would have liked it better if it had the following: a sturdier plastic case, flip up sights instead of the red dot sight it comes with, the mount also scratched up the rail a bit, it needs a point on the stock to attach the supplied sling and most of all an ambi selector switch. The 516 set up for right & left handed shooters, it has ambi mag release, and ambi points to attach the supplied sling (again not on the stock) but no ambi selector switch? I don't understand that at all. Not a gripe but FYI, the Magpul furniture it's supplied with is different than what's pictured but I was expecting that. Now that's out of the way, it shoots great. We (me and three others) took it out last weekend and had a ball with it. Two of the shooters had never shot an AR (one had never shot a long gun) and both shot it well and fun doing it. To be fair the red dot ah a lot to do with their enjoyment. The one that never shot a long gun before was ready to buy her own by the time we were finished. This is my first AR and besides the gripes listed above it's a good rifle. I shot an off hand 1.5 inch 5 round group at 50 yrds with the first mag (Federal 55 gr.) once I got the red dot adjusted. Bud's gets a 5 of 5 as usual (my 3rd purchase) the rifle gets 4 of 5. Thank you for your time, I hope this helps.
