Default AR talk..... Sig 516 Patrol vs. Stag 8T vs. Core15 Piston

Ok AR guys chime in and give me some insight.....
Please I don't wanna hear how a Colt is better, had one for 22 years, not looking for another Colt.
If you have experience with any of these 3, lemme know what you think.
I have owned Colts, DPMS, Bushmasters.... all impingement models in the past.
I am in the process of buying one of these gas piston 16 inch M4 rifles.

Sig 516 Patrol G2: $1400; 1 in 7 chrome lined barrel; Limited Lifetime Warranty

Stag 8T: $1500; 1 in 7 SS barrel; Lifetime Warranty

Core15 TAC Piston: $1400; 1 in 8 SS barrel; Lifetime Warranty

Thanks

We have Sig 556's at work I don't care for them. They are heavy as heck and not good to carry around. I haven't shot the exact one you are talking about but it looks lighter. We carry sig pistols as well and I love sig. I would buy all sig pistolas if I had the money. You really cant go wrong with them and they will take care of you if you ever have any problems with your weapon.

I do know the guy with sigs hate cleaning them. They say its a pain to take down until you figure it out better. I have a colt at work so its pretty standard..

I've got a lefty Stag AR, it's awesome. They make as nice an AR as anyone, IMO.

Sig 556 is a different animal than the 516 patrol I have time behind both of them.
I am leaning towards the Stag 8T or SIG 516 right now.... Been on the phone and email with Core15 Systems all week and I am not getting a "warm and fuzzy" from them.
The $1500 Stag 8T price is with customized options installed the shipped price, Ambi- switches, upgraded bolt, barrel, compensator, rails n buttstock.

Thanks for the links, I have seen them before... good prices.
I spoke with Stag Arms and they have a MIL/ LE discount program pretty sweet deal on the Stag 8T...cheaper than other 2 shipped even with a $25 FFL transfer fee.
Thinking of going this route.
