New Sig Sauer Guns for 2016

New Sig Sauer Guns for 2016

For 2016, Sig Sauer is introducing two new long guns: a rifle and a carbine. The rifle is the SIGM400 Predator Hunting Rifle and the carbine is the MPX Carbine, a 16-inch barreled version of Sig's popular subgun.

"Hunting with the modern sporting rifle had gone from fad to an accepted norm," said John Brasseur, director of product development for Sig Sauer, Inc. "With the SIGM400 Predator, hunters have an exceptional hunting rifle right out of the box, with no upgrades or additions needed."

Based off the direct-impingement SIGM400 action, the new Predator offers a series of enhanced features designed with hunters in-mind. In its 5.56mm offering, the SIGM400 is perfect for small game such as prairie dog, predators like coyotes, or deer with the right ammo and careful bullet placement. The versatile 300 Blackout cartridge can be used on game up to whitetail deer and is a popular option among feral hog hunters throughout the country, especially when suppressed.

At the heart of the SIGM400 Predator is a two-stage match trigger, helping hunters maximize their accuracy with each shot. The hammer forged stainless steel barrel comes in an 18-inch length in 5.56mm and a 16-inch length in 300 Blackout. Barrels come threaded for the addition of muzzle devices including suppressors, where legal. A top Picatinny rail allows for optics to be mounted, and the ALG aluminum free-floating handguard features M-Lok attachment points, allowing for lights, lasers and bipods to be attached easily.


The SIGM400 Predator comes with a 5-round detachable box magazine, making it compliant with most state hunting regulations, but also accepts any STANAG AR-pattern magazine. Lightweight, versatile and ergonomically friendly, the SIGM400 Predator is ready for the hunt.

The modular 9mm Sig MPX Carbine maintains the cool factor of the short-barrel rifle and pistol variants, but now with a 16-inch hammer-forged barrel. A full-length aluminum KeyMod handguard provides ample room for mounting lights, lasers and grips.

SIG-MPX-CUnlike traditional pistol-caliber submachine guns, the Sig MPX Carbine operates from a closed bolt, and uses a locking rotating bolt system. A short-stroke gas piston with auto-regulating gas valve allows the Sig MPX Carbine to run all weights and brands of 9mm ammunition, from low-power training loads to +P duty ammo.

Familiar AR-pattern controls and ergonomics reduce the training curve and are instinctive for anyone experienced with the AR system. A full-length picatinny rail allows for solid, consistent mounting of optics and targeting lasers- folding iron sights come standard. The Sig MPX Carbine is a modular design, and handguards and barrel lengths can be quickly changed over in the field. The barrel comes with the Sig three-prong flash hider.

Shooting 600 Yards with .300 Blackout

The .300 Blackout cartridge was developed to provide greater effectiveness than a 9mm at short and medium ranges when fired from a short-barreled suppressed firearm. Just because the cartridge wasn't designed to go long doesn't mean Rifles & Optics Editor Tom Beckstrand won't take it there, using a large-format pistol, no less. Armed with SIG Sauer's 9-inch-barreled MCX Virtus Pistol loaded with Black Hills' 125-grain TMK ammunition, Beckstrand attempts to ring steel at 600 yards with help from Hornady's 4DOF ballistic calculator in this segment of “Long Range Tech.”
