The softest-shooting AR-10 we’ve handled was also the loudest. This is a high-quality build that was easy to handle. Adding a suppressor would make this a dream rifle.

Details are where SIG Sauer excels. Right to left, note the chamfering on the locking pin and the contours of the safety selector. The left-side magazine release pivots so that the rearward-facing edge is pushed inward to operate. The bolt-catch paddle is oversized. Bottom, the trigger guard was expanded for use with gloves.
The 716G2 muzzle brake was more a collection of plates than it was an expansion chamber. Note how the brake envelops the threaded barrel. The handguard was tall as well as being long enough to cover almost the entire barrel.
The 716G2 offered a gas system that was immediately accessible and easily tuned by the shooter. This was another hint that this rifle was perhaps designed for attaching a suppressor.
The SIG’s ambidextrous charging handle was very easy to use and required little effort.
