I cant imagine why because the two different ones I've handled at the local fun shop felt amazing and looked great, If I had the cash and the space in my safe and the extra ammo to burn Id have one right now!
Oh, and of the two 516's I saw one had no irons just the Sig mini red dot and a CTR stock but the other came with just the Magpul BUIS set and a MOE stock.
simple solution to the ergonomics is as easy as swapping out the stock and the pistol grip (any gun loving nut job can do it) as well as throwing the AFG2 on it. Get the one with the red dot as it most likely has the original bolt carrier design. Then throw on a couple magpul mbus gen 2 front and rear sights on it and you are set unless you want the troy hk style sights instead.
