After two full years of competitive shooting with SIG SAUER’S SDI Comp Rifle, Team SIG’s Daniel Horner has refined the platform to meet his competition needs and developed the ultimate 3-Gun rifle, the new M400-DH3 from SIG Custom Works.
The M400 DH3 is the First SIG Custom Works Rifle
The first-ever rifle from SIG Custom Works features full-ambi controls with the new SIG-designed ambi bolt-catch and bolt-release, a Timney DH3 Single Stage Trigger, a custom DH3 Adjustable stock, fluted stainless 223 Wylde barrel (for optimal 5.56 and 223 Rem performance) and a 3 Chamber Compensator for muzzle rise reduction. The new M400-DH3 from SIG Custom Works gives you the same competitive edge and the same rifle used by 10-time 3 gun champion Daniel Horner.
SIG M400 DH3 Features
- DH3 Adjustable Stock
- 2-Stage Adjustable Timney Daniel Horner Signature Trigger
- Low Profile 3-Gun Handguard
- Ambidextrous Controls Including Bolt Catch/Release
- Fluted Competition Barrel
- 1:8 Twist Rate

If there’s one person you want to design your competition rifle, it’s Daniel Horner. Making a list of the major multi-gun matches that he’s won would end up being a 1500 word article just listing matches. He served an illustrious career with the Army Marksmanship Unit, and now he’s over at SIG winning championships.
The M400 DH3 itself looks like a great rifle with loads of features. For example, including a Timmy trigger in the package is a great choice. Also, having ambi controls means it will be easier to switch shoulders with this rifle. Some of the multi-gun stages have tight corners, and being able to run the gun on your support shoulder is important. Lastly, the stock is a nice touch. A fully adjustable stock means you can tweak it to exactly the right height and length of pull for your optic/mount choice.
Interestingly, the SIG M400 DHS is kind of alone in its segment. None of the big name AR manufacturers are offering a competition-ready gun out of the box right now. The closest thing to a competitor rifle is the Ruger AR-556 MPR. However, there’s no info as of yet on the new SIG rifle’s MSRP. So, it’s tough to say whether the Ruger is really in its competitive-set. It’s likely the M400 DH3 will also cost a bit more than the Ruger.
Finally, if you’re looking for a ready to rock competition rifle out of the box, the SIG M400 DH3 looks like the answer.
