NOTE: Due to the various configurations available for the LCH716, some variations may require additional assembly and production time. Please allow at least two (2) weeks for your handguard to ship.
Designed to fit the popular Sig Sauer 716 rifle, with piston operating systems. The Lancer piston rifle carbon fiber handguards will replace the OEM handguard and offer a substantial weight savings without sacrificing performance.
Contrary to popular belief, we designed these handguards in carbon fiber not for cosmetic reasons, but because our carbon fiber handguards are lighter, stronger, and less heat-conductive than their aluminum counterparts. While they are certainly one of the best options on the market for competition use, they are much more than just “go-fast parts”. The immense strength, durability, and low thermal conductivity of Lancer’s carbon fiber handguards have made them the favored handguard system for some of the most demanding military units and law enforcement agencies both in the United States and in our allied countries around the globe.

Ran into some installation hiccups while following the instructions in the website resources but the instructions although basic had the right information. Overall this makes this rifle much improved on weight and function with the extended handguard. I will look at getting the SIG516 handguard but I will have to look for a deal online before I can afford another.
Perfect replacement handguard for the Sig 716 patrol, I have the 13″ installed on mine.. and as I love full quad rails the short original Sig handguard is a little chubby obviously cause it’s a piston driven rifle and it’s .308…. But the lancer makes it’s so much slimmer and a little lighter but honestly can’t tell a big difference in weight after optics and accessories are installed but more hand realestate is what’s accomplished here and must say looks better as well …..
Only con is when trying to clean the actual piston on the rifle after the 13″ length is installed you cannot remove the piston due to no front cutout not being long enough to remove it …so basically you can either do what I did and made it a little deeper of a pocket with a drimmel or completely remove the handguard which in my opinion isn’t practical when it’s already “blue” lock tighted in.
All in all though definitely an upgrade worth installing on the Sig 716 patrol gen 1
