Worth every penny,
November 18, 2015
I really wanted an LWRC when I bought my Sig 516, but just was not sure they were worth an extra 1000$. I'm glad I saved the money, because I'm not sure how the LWRC, (while a great gun) could be any better than the Sig. 516. I also installed a match trigger in mine. It is perfect as far as my perceived needs go. I have owned numerous standard M-4 type guns over the years, but this is my favorite. They run much cooler/cleaner than a DI type AR. I have around 8,000 rounds through mine with no malfs.

My new Sig Sauer 516 has been flawless at the range and I’m very pleased. It’s very obvious that Sig's quality and superb engineering is top notch. I have made a few changes, but in general they weren’t really necessary. I installed a Geissele SD3G trigger which brings a new found joy to a mag dump that would brighten anyone’s day. I also installed the Rainier Arms Raptor ambidextrous charging handle because my Eotech sight setup got in the way. I seriously feel like I now have the perfect AR15 rifle and its design is a work of art. I have been so impressed with the 516 that I plan on purchasing its big brother the 716, and I hope that it has the option of a 20 inch barrel. I highly recommend the 516 to anyone’s collection.

Just want to say that for me this has been an ultimate firearm. It has performed with no flaws to speak of. I have fired about 800 to 900 rounds thru it of different types and brands of ammo and SIG did it right. Easy piston system to clean and your back at it.
Only Flaw and My Opinion only: They should have thrown in the SIG Soft Case with it.
When you purchase a Firearm like these for the money $1500 to $3500 they should do it (again my opinion only)
