- Very well done rifle. Review by Mickey
Just picked up my 716 FDE yesterday from my FFL. Took home and gave it a good field strip/ inspection/ cleaning. Looks like Sig did a good job on the fit, finish and quality. Comes standard with ambi mag release also. The backup sights seem to be of good quality. Comes with a military style cleaning kit, sling with QD`s already installed and a Magpul magazine which is a bonus. The integral QD receptacles on the lower receiver and handguard are a nice touch too, no need for me to put a Magpul ambi sling adapter on this one. Bolt seems to be standard but the carrier looks to be highly machined to achieve a "low mass" style look/ function. I will give some more feedback later as I wont have the opportunity to send rounds downrange until early next week. Palmetto did great in the customer service department. There was a mix up on the first rifle that they sent (Sig 516 FDE). But after one phone call and one transfer they made it a priority to make things right. I had the correct rifle in my hands THE NEXT DAY! With service like this I will continue to be a repeat customer.
