Here’s what our experts had to say about the SIG Sauer 716i TREAD in their testing for the 2020 issue of Ballistic’s Best:

“The SIG Sauer TREAD lived up to its name as a good value, and for $1,399 you get a great AR-10 with a nice trigger, an ambidextrous safety, and upgraded grip and stock. Reliable and accurate, it was for the most part a dead heat. You simply cannot go wrong with any of these rifles.”

  • SIG Sauer 716i TREAD

Before we get to the winner, here are all of the categories in our 2020 Reader’s Choice voting:

In total, there were 12,080 votes for the “Best Semi-Auto AR-10 Rifle” category. Grabbing more than 7,000 of the votes for a total of 59.13 percent is the winner: the SIG Sauer 716i TREAD.

With its new aluminum-frame 716i TREAD, SIG defiantly steps into the .308 AR market. The new rifle is essentially a lightweight, direct-impingement version of SIG’s popular 716 series. It also features a precision 16-inch barrel and free-floating M-LOK handguard. Beyond that is an oversized ambidextrous mag release, charging handle, safety selector, and rear QD cups. The two-stage Matchlite Duo trigger and six-position adjustable stock round out a really nice package.

Overall, this is an intriguing .308 entry. The last part of the equation is MSRP. Currently, the MSRP is $1,429.99, but we expect a “street price” closer to $1,299.99. We’ll be looking to test one very soon. For more information, please visit
