WATCH: SIG Sauer M400 Tread

posted on January 21, 2019
SIG Sauer featured its M400 Tread rifle at the SIG Media Day early in 2019, an all-new platform that provides firearm enthusiasts with an easy, effective way to enhance and upgrade their rifle.

The SIG Sauer M400 Tread, unlike other base-model AR-15s, secures the barrel and handguard to the upper receiver with a completely different system that requires only two screws for assembly. For entry-level owners of this rifle, this makes changing out components like handguards and barrels even easier. Those who like to tinker with ARs won't have to have a collection of specialized tools to swap out components, making the already-accessible AR even easier to modify.

The company offers a number of accessories that are compatible with the new system, giving consumers the ability to swap out charging handles, fore-ends, hand stops, back-up sights, muzzle brakes and trigger units with common tools

For all the details on this easy-to-use platform, check out the video above and take a look at Shooting Illustrated's First Look here.

What is the Greatest Defensive Skill?

You can say what you want to about your favorite defensive school or those advanced-fighting techniques you learned, but the greatest defensive skill that a person can develop is simply awareness. I will freely admit that developing effective awareness is anything but simple, but being able to spot trouble before it is close enough to get in your face will certainly save you from a lot of trouble and possibly even some pain and grief.
