Sig 716 18″ 3-Gun Model Coming
Update 11-13-13: The 3Gun is in stock. See our post with photos and details.
We received word today that Sig will be selling a new 716 rifle with an 18″ barrel. The model is going to be called the 716 3-Gun and will be shipping in about four to eight weeks.
I’m told the 716 3-Gun will have a match grade trigger, Sig grip and stock, quad rail, 18″ heavy barrel, and it will ship in a Sig Rifle-Gobag. MSRP is expected to be roughly $2600.
This rifle will be the first 18″ 716 to ship. In 2012 Sig took orders for a 20″ Precision Marksman (R716-H20B-PRM) but it never shipped. Eventually it was canceled and replaced by an 18″ Precision Marksman (R716-H18B-PRM). To date we have not seen any of the 18″ Precision Marksman rifles ship. As of this posting the estimated ship date on that model is 02/2014.
As we receive new information or photos, we will post updates here.
Update 6-18-13: The Sig part number for this model is R716-H18B-3GH and the Sig order description says “SIG716, 7.62 NATO, 3GUN HVY, SEMI, 18 IN, MATCH TRIGGER, SIG GRIP”. Estimated delivery is currently November 13, 2013.
