I am looking into putting some glass on my SIG716 and specifically looking at the Nikon M308. Does anyone have anything to say about this scope? What did you put on your 716 or would you recommend putting on it? Lastly did you change out the flash suppressor for a compensator and if so which one and what was the results. Thanks
It's a great scope on a 5.56 and was OK on the 716, but I wanted a little more top end magnification to better take advantage of the increased range of the 7.62 round. When I saw the great accuracy potential of the 716 I kind of jumped too high and put a big Leupold MK4 6.5-20x50mm FFP M5 on it.
I could shoot sub-MOA gorups with it, but it was too much scope for the 716. It is a patrol carbine and not a DMR. I still wanted a little more top end magnification than the 4x but didn't want to go too high on the low end to where it wouldn't be good for closer in targets. I ended up trying out the Nightforce 25-10x and it seems to be perfect for the 716 in my opinion.
