Sig 516G2 - 10" upper suppressable? (Edit: yes, it is, with pictures) Login/Join

I tried posting this in the rifle room but thought I might get a better answer here.

I've got the opportunity to get a solid deal on a 10" 516 gen 2 upper, which would be perfect for the type of carbine I want to build. However, I'm not interested if I can't mount my Omega/ASR on it, because I don't tend to shoot loud guns. Anyone here know if it'll fit? It looks like if nothing else, I could always grind down the gas adjustment switch to make it work, but obviously I'd prefer to avoid that.

ETA: I called Sig customer service, and the guy, without even thinking about it, just said "Oh yeah! It'll fit! No problem!" leading me to believe that he's a moron and can't be bothered to actually look. No help there.

Thanks!

It should fit as the barrel thread shoulder is ahead of the switch.

It'll work with the SiCo brake on it, gonna be a bit tight... so flip the switch before you mount the suppressor.

Here's a decent pic of a 516... http://www.stlfinder.com/model...x-suppressor/1550018

Exactly the kind of information I needed. I expected a tight fit, can always pull the switch and grind it down a little if I need to.

New build, here we go...

I believe it will fit fine, especially since the ASR mount moves the can forward a bit compared with the direct thread mount.

Well, I can verify that it works fine! I tried to put up some pictures, but Prime Photo is being a dickhole and just flat not working, and I refuse to ever visit Photobucket again.

Edit: I'm an idiot. The functionality just sucks, it was working fine. I won't have any photos of it complete until I put it on the one registered SBR lower that's on my trust, which is currently at my dad's house. Gun laws are stupid.

Out of the box:



Five minutes later Razz



Complete, for now, optics when I'm less broke (and a new Knight's lower that I will register)
