Sig Sauer has expanded its popular M400 rifle line with a new model dubbed the SIGM400 Elite.
Chambered in 5.56 NATO and boasting the exacting standards of the original model, the SIGM400 Elite comes with a set of upgrades that make it ready to rock right out of the box. First is the lightweight, full-length, free-floating MLOK handguard for better accuracy and handling. The handguard surrounds a 16-inch, 1:7-inch twist barrel with a SIG Micro-Light Gas Block that weighs in at only half an ounce.

Rather than the standard M4-style stock and A2 grip, the SIGM400 Elite includes a Sig Enhanced six-position buttstock and a Sig Enhanced pistol grip for better control. Also included in this package is the Sig Enhanced single-stage trigger which comes with a lighter trigger pull and crisper feel.
“Since 2010, the M400 has been one of SIG’s most successful rifle platforms due to its reliability, accuracy and feature set that distinguishes it from other competitive models,” said Tom Taylor, Chief Marketing Officer and Executive Vice President, Commercial Sales. “For 2017, we wanted to once again raise consumer expectation by delivering an accuracy-driven rifle that comes equipped with all the desirable features that shooters look for in a complete AR system.”

Available in anodized black and Titanium Cerakote versions, the new SIGM400 Elite has a base MSRP of $1,200 for the anodized black model, and $1,350 for the Titanium Cerakote model. Users can also add a Sig ROMEO5 red dot sight, which costs a little extra.
