I was told that the person(s) that designed the HK 417 also helped design the SIG 716...true? I picked up a 716 recently and its built like my MR556 solid as a brick! Have not taken it out yet but seems to be built nice! Anyways this is what I was told but not sure if it was true.

I think Robert Hirt was part of the design team for the HK416/417 and I think he later became SIG's defense program manager. Robert Hirt did a lot of demos for HK guns (HK416 OTB test and he hip fired a HK GMG). I'm pretty sure G3 kurz would know more about this.

Sig did a Great job on the 716 and you can get them for under 1700.00. It will be my next 308 rifle plus 20 round mags are under 20 dollars. I love my HK's but HK could learn a little from Sigs marketing of the 716.

What I have checked in to was MOA or better with good 168gr ammo, I'll let you know if I ever get a chance to get out to my range to shoot this one.
