First Look: Sig Sauer 716 DMR Gen. 2

First Look: Sig Sauer 716 DMR Gen. 2

New for 2016, Sig Sauer has introduced a new version of its 716 DMR .308 precision rifle.

The first generation Sig Sauer 716 DMR took the features of the SIG 516 and applied them into an AR-based rifle chambered in 7.62 NATO. The first generation rifle used a short-stroke pushrod operating system, an M1913 mil-spec rail, free-floating barrel, aluminum forend and a telescoping stock.

For the gen. 2 version of the Sig Sauer 716 DMR, the company shaved two pounds of weight off the rifle, which brought it to below nine pounds. The rifle also features a threaded taper-lock muzzle device that allows for easy use of any of Sig Sauer's suppressors.

The rifle also features a continuous top rail and a two-position adjustable gas block for reliable use when shooting suppressed and unsuppressed. The Sig 716 DMR Gen. 2 will be available in late February 2016 at a suggested retail price of about $3,000.
