The SIG516 Patrol FDE in Flat Dark Earth with a matching FDE Cerakote® finish on both the upper and lower receivers and aluminum handguard. As with all SIG516 Patrol rifles, the Flat Dark Earth use the SIG SAUER innovative short-stroke gas pushrod operating system, which reduces chamber debris and allows the rifle to run cleaner and cooler.
This system, along with the SIG SAUER proprietary fully supported extractor enables the SIG516 to be one of the only rifles to pass NATO’s “Over the Beach” test.
A 16” chrome-lined barrel is chambered in 5.56mm NATO and is surrounded by a free-floating aluminum forend. The top rail is optic-ready and includes SIG SAUER flip-up iron sights.

|Excellent rifle, exactly the top notch quality you would expect from Sig Sauer. The piston system helps keep the chamber a lot cleaner which helps make cleaning up after a range trip that much easier. Fit and finish are perfect on my rifle and I really like the FDE color scheme. Rockwell Arms was also fantastic to work with. They were easy to get a hold of when I had a question about a mistake I made on my order and were super friendly on helping get everything squared away for me. They have earned their way on to my short list of dealers I will go to whenever I am looking to make a new purchase.|
