Guy has a 716 in 308 for sale at what looks like a decent price $1300. Are these any good $

I like mine. I'm not an AR-10 expert so I don't have a huge range of rifles to compare it with, but I think the quality is great, very accurate and have had no reliability issues. Probably the only thing I don't like is the quad rail.

Can you tell me anything about the magazines ?

They take the 7.62 PMAGS.

Give it an A#1 cleaning and then run it wet. I look for the "2" ejector bolt. Still a good rifle with either bolt!

I've only put a few hundred rounds thru mine but it's been fine so far. A tad in the heavy side but I can live with it. $1300 sounds like a pretty good price on one of these.

Wish i had bought one 5 years ago or so, when they went down to $960 for about two months. O'well:facepalm:

The 716 is unneccessarily heavy in my opinion. I got to pick up a mp10, ruger, scar, and a bushy along with the sig at a gunshow table and the sig felt incredibly heavier. It has to be at least two pounds more than the heaviest of the others. Im not sure what model it was so maybe it was a HB model but geez it was hefty
