I will wait for the rainbow titanium version.

Maybe they'll do a "saintly" tank-tops-and-yoga-pants girl contest to promote this fabulous finish option?

Razz

Quality? None of us know if the rifle is quality in any way, it isn't even out yet. But what we do know from experience is that the 516, 556xi, 716, P320, P365, P227, MCX, MPX and P938 all had multiple issues requiring multiple generations. I highly doubt that this rifle will be any different, as Sig hasn't released a new model that HASNT had serious issues in years.


If it’s an M400 it will be all right. I had one. Solid rifle. Better lowers than typical entry level, everything else is pretty much mil spec of the shelf stuff. Hard to mess that up.


No, no, no. Your logic and reason are not welcome here.

Please come back to this thread when you are more cynical, worldly, and grizzled. (The grizzling process is long and I hear it is quite painful. And it requires walking over a bed of hot coals made of HK416s and Glock 19s. And sacrifice a goat. It’s the pet of Satan, who I think is Ron Cohens brother in law)

Yeah, be more grizzled.

Noted, jl. Thanks for the tip.

I'm out back in the dark shaving my balls with a rusty tuna can lid.

It's the first step in grizzling per the waiver.



"We may consent to be governed, but we will not be ruled." - Kevin D. Williamson, 2012

"All the citizens of this land are of right freemen; they owe no allegiance to any class and should recognize no task-masters. Under the chart of their liberties, under the law of high heaven, they are free and without shackles on their limbs nor mortgages upon the fruits of their brain or muscles; they bow down before no prince, potentate, or sovereign, nor kiss the royal robes of any crowned head; they render homage only to their God and should pay tribute only to their Government. Such at least is the spirit of our institutions, the character of our written national compact."

Nothing wrong with the M400s except price relative to their direct competition and the direction that the marketplace has been going. We stopped carrying them because everyone else was dropping their pricing and SIG wasn't, making the old M4 handguard M400s hard if not outright prohibitive to sell. The Saint (sad to say) with its upgrade furniture was mopping SIG's face in it. We'd sell out a batch of LE6920s long before a single base M400 would move. Rifles like the $500 Sport II and AR-556 vacated the building even more emphatically. When the Elite series came out our buyer wouldn't even bother looking at them, especially now with the Ruger MPR, and similar accessorized guns and their low price points enticing buyers.

The Tread (to me a stupid name that sounds like I should torture test it under the wheels of an F-150) at least should make an impingement SIG AR somewhat financially relevant again.

If the price is right, I may jump. I would like to have a Sig AR to go with my Sig pistols.
And Tread is a stupid name.

I saw 400s in the shop today and they were $1020 per. Which is truly stupid. Seems that shops (at least around here) sell either $450 ARs, or $3000 ARs with very little in between.

Maybe the Tread will bridge that gap in SIG's marketing plan.

ARTY thinks that Tetanus is a beef flavoring.

He no scare.

I saw this. Per the email which I promptly deleted as it seemed to be a clothing line, I must say I thought grizzled had a age requirement. Did I miss that?

If it is priced like an entry gun I think it might be a great idea. I know a lot of you won't understand this but the AR accessory world can be pretty daunting for people not keeping up with it. I can see the idea of a rifle and a pile of boxes of accessories marked with the same logo and guaranteed to fit appealing to true entry level AR buyers.

It was in the email. Take the purchase price, convert that number from Fahrenheit to Celsius and divide by 10. No MSRP.

Cliche list:

Female. Check.
Tank top. Check.
Yoga pants. Check.
Crossfit. Check.
Outdoorsy. Check.
A little ink. Check.
Is this a gun, clothing, or lifestyle brand? Check.

Yes. It's all fine they blend these together and normalize the shooting sports. It feels like Springfield Armory tried to do this recently though.

Meh, there are pretty much only two tropes in EBR advertising. Either dark haired and bearded guys loaded up with tac gear who look like Bradley Cooper playing Kyle Reece in American Sniper, or very fit women in tank tops showing they can be gun badasses too.

Yeah it's basically SIG Sauer's answer to SA's "Saint" rifles.

That's fine. Some people just want to buy a name brand rifle all setup and shoot it as is.
