This shop by me has "The Other" Sig 556, the 516. I'm not sure of the price. It seems a bit high for a piston AR-15. Not trying to Hi-Jack, but has anyone handled and or shot one of these rifles?  Bill T.

They added more "traditional AR hardware, receiver, bolt, fwd. assist. dust cover, etc,.."

Fondled but did not shoot the 516, seemed they lightened up the fore end a bit than the 556.(which comes in around 9lbs.) For the price billt, you could "build yourself a damn top shelf AR cheaper, and pick and choose the components along the way.

That is why our masters in Washington are so anxious to disarm us. They are not afraid of criminals. They are afraid of a populace which cannot be subdued by tyrants."

If you want a "regular" AR in a piston configuration you'd be much better off buying a PWS. They're cheaper than the 516 and proven. If you have more disposable income then buy a POF. You can't get any better but a bit rich for me. You can get the complete PWS for less than most POF uppers.
