The SIG Sauer M400 TREAD COIL is the most recent addition to the expanding line of TREAD products (as of this writing). They say this new rifle is an enhanced version of the popular M400 TREAD Rifle with the most popular TREAD branded accessories including the ROMEO5 TREAD Red Dot sight, match trigger, lightweight handguard, and vertical foregrip that come factory installed.
Based on its predecessors, the M400 TREAD rifle, the 11” TREAD Pistol, and the 716i TREAD, the M400 TREAD COIL semi-auto rifle is chambered in 5.56 NATO and comes with a 30-round AR-15 type polymer magazine. The stock is a MAGPUL SL-K Telescoping Stock and an M-LOK accessory rail.
Tom Taylor, Chief Marketing Officer, and Executive Vice President, Commercial Sales said, “Just like its predecessors, the M400 TREAD COIL combines innovation and value. This rifle is unique because it comes with a factory-installed red dot optic, making it ready to go right out of the box, along with other popular features that until now, were only available through an accessory purchase. The M400 TREAD COIL delivers the freedom to have an enhanced TREAD rifle right from the store with a very advantageous price that makes this an exceptional value to the consumer.”
