    This might just be hear say but lately SIG has had lots of complaints in general from what I have seen on all the forums I visit. Maybe some one can verify that QC has or has not dropped off lately?

    or go to you tube and search for it. You will find that it has problems.

    It interests me but there are to many good rifles out there for the same or less money to chance it with the questionable sig. If you absolutely have to have a piston system they may be worth a look but I wouldn't.

    I have fired a buddy's 516. It did OK. Felt recoil seemed to me to be slightly less than my Adams Arms conversion carbine.
