Sig716 spare parts & after market questions

From reading a few posts on here I was given the impression that getting spare parts for my 716 would be quite difficult. Well, to anyone still searching, I contacted Sig a couple weeks ago and they are now offering what they called a "full internal parts kit" which the CS rep. told me included the bolt assembly, trigger assembly, pins, springs,etc.(I didn't manage to hear if it included a charging handle, need to call back.) FOR ONLY $323! It DOES NOT include the gas system. I won't be getting it anytime soon, the rep. gave me an estimate of about 6 or more months wait, but I did get a confirmation e-mail and I'm just really happy to know they're offering a kit now.

As for after market, I'm wondering if the 716 will take a Geissele SD3G and a Magpul enhanced trigger guard? Also, while the actual recoil of the rifle is negligable the muzzle does like to move quite a bit in rapid fire. So any good muzzle brake suggestions would also be appreciated.

Thanks!

I can't tell you about the magpul trigger guard, but I installed the Geissele trigger in mine and love it.

I put a Geissele in mine too. Great trigger and they send some nice swag along too!

the 716 will take any ar15 style trigger. Try out the spikes battle trigger $50 and a clean crisp non gritty trigger. I love mine.

I put a AR-10 4# Timney single stage trigger on mine. I emailed Timney and they told me to use the AR-10 and not the AR-15 trigger. I did not want to play with an adjustable trigger. It is a direct drop in replacement. For a muzzle brake I got a Smith Entrerprises good iron brake. You need a brake that is 5/8" x 24 threads.

Regarding your question about muzzle brake suggestions...
I bought the Primary Weapons Systems (PWS) FCS30 to replace the stock muzzle brake that comes on the SIG716. I really enjoy shooting my SIG716 with that badboy muzzle brake. The recoil is much better now. It's like night and day.
Cheers!

They won't sell the gas system? Or are they just separate items? I'd like to have a spare regulator/plug and piston assembly.

Check out sastacticalbrakes.com. He has a number of different styles,finishes and metals that he uses. I have one of his JT Hybrids on my 716 and love it. Reduced recoil 50 to 75% and lift during rapid fire. Put one on a 556 and its like shooting an airsoft!

I am not sure if you are still wondeirng, as it is a few months later, but yes the Magpul enhanced trigger guard fits great, i put one on my SIG716. Also, after doing A LOT of research, i came accross the Griffin Armament Flashcomp .308... I found a video of some guys testing about 20 breaks and comps, and the Flashcomp did just as well as the Battlecomp at literally less than half the cost, and out performed a majority of the others in all aspects. Reduces the recoil, reduces muzzle rise, and unlilike most comps and brakes reduces flash, while eliminating that extra side percusion and volume you typically get from a brake (that usually startles the guy shooting next to you, which the PWS one DEFINITELY does. Even the 5.56 PWS one sends shockwaves through the guy 3 shooting positions over). Definitely and outstanding upgrade for an already great rifle.
