The SIG 556 Russian wasn’t the only new exciting rifle unveiled by Sig Sauer at the 2011 SHOT Show: The new SIG716 rifle chambered in 7.62 NATO was on display at their booth at the Sands Expo and Convention Center.

All of the models accept standard 7.62×51 MagPul PMAGs and are shipped with these direct from the factory.

The model we handled had a full length Picatinny rail with MagPul flip up sights.

The 556 rifle has always had an AK-style action, which contributes greatly to the reliability of Sig’s rifle platform, but now Sig has released a 7.62×39 caliber version that is compatible with standard AK-47 magazines.
