I had the original 716, and was very happy with it. My only negative was it was heavy, and the new ones are much lighter. I also think the Tread looks better! I had a Vortex Strike Eagle on it, no issues.

Sex offenders can not be rehabilitated. It's in their wiring. They should not be released back into the general public. On the other hand they should not be warehoused either. I think they should be executed.....Spectre

When someone tries to kill you, it doesn't matter how they are doing it. You're in mortal danger, and it's time to try to kill them back.


Kill every last one of these goddamned animals. We need a president with balls. We need leadership. We should be carpet bombing these barbarians wherever we find them, and we should be looking for them 24/7. We have to unleash Hell upon them. They understand nothing but death, so death is what we should bring them, wholesale.... Para

I have the 716i with a SIG BDX scope. The gun is terrific but the trigger was terrible and needed to be replaced. The scope came with the gun and is adequate for my purposes (shooting paper and steel out to 300 yards).

I have a 716i Tread and put a Vortex 1-8 on it. Next summer I plan to get a little more serious about glass, so for now it got what I had. Shoots great.

(I didn’t like the trigger either and dropped a QMS in it for now.)

Love mine after a couple of minor changes. Replaced the trigger (which was a standard USGI type AR trigger and thus adequate at best) with a CMC drop in unit. It currently has a Burris 1-6x on it and deserves better. I also replaced the buttstock with an ACS I had here already. Mine came with a Magpul SL-K stock that was just way too small for a big heavy rifle. Looked and felt weird.
