    DAMN!!! All I see is red X's!!!
    I could do nothing more; in solitude and abject misery in that dark hour,
    in a country of savage heathen,
    thousands of miles away from a Christian land,
    I beseeched an aid above all human, trusting alone to Him.
    - Sir Samuel Baker

    The basic design of the 716 seems to be an upsizing of the 516, with the same kind of block, rails and stocks and gas system. Although the press packet says "standard M14 type steel magazine", we were told by the SHOT rep that the magazines were actually Armalite AR-10.

    The 716 is currently "in development", with the following models on display at SHOT

    20" Precision model
    I am in love!

    Umm so why did they go with the Armalite mags for their AR-10?

    I have an Armalite AR-10 and the biggest weakness are the magazines. The mags on my DPMS LR-308 are superior.

    Yeah, I'm surprised to see they haven't jumped on the PMAG-LR bandwagon with KAC et al.
    My idea of sustainability is having enough ammo for your gun and enough fuel for your tank.

    Sorry. Haven't had enough time to spend much time on the forum. The glass seems really clear and eye relief is generous. The illumination is very bright and it seems that it would be a good daylight scope at 1.1x. Leupold didn't give any clear release date or price point. There were several of these scopes at SHOT and we were told they were all prototypes.

    I don't have the pamphlet right now, but the models shown appeared to intended for .308/7.62 NATO platforms, using a Horus reticle.

    I try to post more when I get home if anyone is interested later.

    We had a discussion with Leupold rep at the show. The scope is in development stage so a price is not set yet. When they asked us what we think the price should be, we told them it should be about 1200USD.......i

    About damn time they updated their P226 line. Sick of seeing "special" models that have a decal on them.
