SIG 716 Precision Marksman - New Look?!

Word from my dealer is that they will start shipping in late October. Mine has been on order since January. SHOT Show video on YouTube got my hopes up. You would think the project manager would have an accurate estimate of when they will start shipping. Guess not.

My dealer mentions that they did sell ONE a few months ago.

Except for that one listing on Gunbroker (which only provided stock photos), all of this is hearsay for the SIG 716 Precision Marksman.

I can't really confirm if it exists.

I do have photos of the SIG 516 Precision Marksman on another thread, though.

Did you see it being listed as "In Stock?"

There are many online retailers that've listed them at one time or another, but only as being "Out of Stock..."

I'm confused now Like I said my LGS ordered me one but they said the 3 gun was no longer available. They showed me a picture of the one you all are saying is the old model. The one you are showing is the 20" version. The one my LGS is showing looks like that only its a 18" version. Im going to have to go back and find out what is going on. The butt stock on the old model is what I want only with a 18" barrel. I called Sig they also said the 3 gun isn't made any more. Its the DM now. Guess I will have to wait and see. I guess there could be some more 3 gun models that haven't sold yet.????

I'm not aware of what's happened.

The 3 - Gun variation was said to be a limited run.

I didn't know they had a DM / Designated Marksman model available.

Preferred the older look, actually.

NEW



OLD

I agree. The older looks better.
Edsel and mrbossman like this.

I noticed that Sig's website was recently updated in the last week or so. What was the "Precision Marksman" appears to now be the "716 DPM". Newly added is the "3 Gun Heavy". I'm not sure what the differences between these two other than the stock.

I want a Precision Marksman (or whatever they are calling them), but I can't seem to get a straight answer on availability. I'd love to find one of the older ones with the 20" tube and target buttstock.

Looks like 516s are now Gen 3 versions. Not sure what all is different, but the side rails and gas block area have clearly changed.

I just took a look at the new designs - I'm sort of glad I got my SIG rifles while they were Gen 2s.

went to lgs today supposedly I have on order the R716-H18B-PRM in a 18" so was also told it is out of stock at the moment excepted to be back in stock in2/14 so guess its a wait and see. They also supposedly have the R716-H18B-DM I would take either but prefer the PRM if available

I just got an email from SIG today...

Not quite sure how the DMR is supposed to look like, but this is what the email contained...



...and this is how it appears on the website.



Come on, SIG!

Which is which?!

At this point, even if I had a SIG 716 with a barrel longer than 16" on my lap, I'll still say it's vaporware.

I've been conditioned to do so for almost one and a half years!

I prefer the older version.
I'm glad I bought my Sig716fde when I did because they changed that also.

716 DMR cofig

I got the same email.
I have two DMR's that arrived this week via LEO pre order. They are configured like the picture on the bottom, not the email picture. The web page is correct. I posted the range target data for both rifles on another forum thread if interested. Impressive.
