SIG SAUER has previously offered complete short-barreled upper receivers for their SIG516® rifles, but this is the first time complete rifles are to be offered in SBR configurations.
Preferred by entry teams and CQB specialists for greater maneuverability in tight places, SBRs deliver significant ballistic performance over pistol-caliber weapons. With the growth of the suppressor market, SBRs have also seen increased interest from those who want a suppressed rifle without introducing additional length.
SBRs are available in Classic, Patrol and SWAT configurations, giving the user a wide variety of options.
The Fulfilled Potential Of The AR-15/M16
One of the most tested and proven weapons systems in the world achieves ultimate refinement with the introduction of the SIG516 rifle. With its chrome-lined, phosphated, military grade barrel and adjustable, three-position gas regulator, the SIG516 incorporates all of the most desirable mechanical improvements.
Add to these a free-floating quad rail forend and barrel, and you have the most advanced, versatile AR-based rifle available.
