Sig Sauer recently announced on their Facebook page that they’ve started to ship their new SIG516 and SIGM400 Carbon Fiber rifles to their dealers. Both the SIG516 and SIGM400 rifles use free-floated carbon fiber handguards and come with a carbon fiber A2-length fixed buttstock. Both rifles also come with a 2-stage match trigger and 30 round Lancer L5 magazine. The SIGM400 is a direct gas impingement AR while the SIG516 makes use of a short-stroke gas piston system with a with 4-position gas valve. The SIG516 rifle (pictured above) weights in at 7.1 lbs without a mag and retails at $2,504. The SIGM400 rifle (pictured below) also weights in at 7.1 lbs without a mag and retails at $2,132.

I don't understand the carbon fiber thing. Makes me think of those Honda Civics with 17" rims, spoilers that look like a aircraft wings, and engine hoods made of carbon fiber. That just my opinion though. I have a 10" 516 Gen2 upper and if you spend a little time sanding the tool marks and de-honing it's one of the best piston AR uppers. It's as good as HK's piston AR for a whole lot less.
