    You do realize that this AR would still be restricted due to the 16.5 barrel right? I love all the "de-restrict the AR chatter". 18.5 and up would be non-restricted, all the rest of the ARs most of us have wouldn't change.

    Back on topic.... nope.

    First of all, both KAC and Noveske ARs are fairly similar in price to this one. Second, SIG Sauer is no longer the quality manufacturer they once were, whereas the other two makers both have excellent reputations.

    Sig Sauer GMBH != Sig Sauer USA when it comes to guns, for one thing.

    These rifles are not made in North America.

    Wow, I can't believe but I'm not surprised at the responses. First of all, to all the internet experts, who has ever owned a Sig 516?
    I have and although I no-longer have it as it was traded away for another special item, it was an outstanding rifle. I would buy another one and certainly own one long before getting a Noveske or KAC which are just another DI gun.
    Mine was a US made one and it's quality was outstanding. Totally reliable and very light weight.

    Remember many are still praising the HK 416, the Sig 516 was aided in it's design and development by one of the lead designers of the HK 416. He clearly stated that he attempted to correct errors made in the 416 with his new 516.

    If you have an interest in a quality piston driven AR this is a great deal. If you want to turn this into a DI vs Piston thing, go buy another DI gun.

    Check out some of the Sig Sauer testing videos on You Tube, with the Thai Army. Very impressive demos with the 516. In-fact much of what they demo can't reliable be done with a DI gun.

    These are made in Germany as well, so one might expect a higher level of quality and control although my US made one was outstanding.

    If I didn't have my HK MR223 and Swiss Arms guns, I'd be all over this deal.

    agreed
    Where can people find "For Sale" ads for small cannons in Canada?

    There are great reviews on this design, that's for sure. A serious AR shooter/collector has to consider this one.

    In regards to restricted status or not, it doesn't matter to me. I (and many others) live in the city. There's no crown land within a couple of hours thats available or not being used by a leaseholder (who most likely won't let you shoot anyway--for various reasons). So right now,the range is where it's at (support your local range!).

    Things would be different if I had a isolated farm somewhere, and I suspect these people shoot stuff no matter what classified status their guns are. (I'm not advocating breaking any laws, I'm just saying what's probably been happening out there since these rifles became restricted back in 1992). Sorry, I'm digressing....

    A few of these rifles will sell for sure, but 2-3 other dealers have them listed as well. So I think there will be downward pressure on the numbers sold.
