I own a 516 and absolutely love it. I would like to own its bigger brother the 716 some day. Have never had a FTF or FTE and every part on it is top notch.

I have played with the M400 and like it as well

I have the sig m400 enhanced. Its a great ar, shoots smooth and I havent had any problems with it. Eotech xps2 works awsome on it.

Mullet hunter. They are about the same, the colt m4 is 6lb 11oz. The sig sauer m400 enhanced is 6lb 7oz. In fact the stock m400 is 6.5lb, lighter than most ar rifles. Yes that is empty weight. 516 is a little heavier 7.6lb or somthing like that.

Are you talking about the sig 556 or the m400? Big difference between the two

The Sig AR comes with a nice black padded carry case with the Sig logo. A lot of shops, even Wal mart will not include the case with the gun, so make sure you get the case. I saw Jay's had removed the case from one and was selling it on the floor for over a hundred bucks. Also, a buddy of mine bought one from wal-mart, and demanded the case they said they didn't have, but a manager found it in the back, Hmmmm.
