SIG SAUER introduced the 716i TREAD, a direct impingement, AR-10 platform that provides versatility for long range shooting and hunting while maintaining a lightweight design for easy carry. According to the company the 716i TREAD is easily customizable with existing TREAD branded accessories.
“The TREAD brand has gained recognition for offering premium products, at a competitive price point, that are designed, engineered and built with the same quality and innovation consumers expect from any SIG SAUER product,” said Tom Taylor, Chief Marketing Officer and Executive Vice President, Commercial Sales.
“The 716i TREAD brings the power of the AR-10 platform to the TREAD series and is an exciting expansion to the line. The rifle is lightweight with premium features right out of the box, and consumers can anticipate an affordable price point.”
The new 716i TREAD therefore combines the reliability of SIG’s lightweight direct impingement system, paired with the customization of TREAD, chambered in 7.62 NATO.
