The “pursuit has a new predator.” That’s the tagline of the new Sig Sauer M400 Tread Predator Rifle. This baby is a beast of a gun, and if you have the opportunity to add it to your collection, it’s going to make your next hunt a memorable one. As a new addition to Sig Sauer’s hunting line, you can imagine this rifle has been years in the making with the care and extreme detail that goes into each of their firearms. Let’s look at the details of the new Sig Sauer M400 Tread Predator Rifle so you can decide if it’s a gun you need to get your hands on.
A Modern Sporting Rifle
The M400 Tread Predator Rifle is a Modern Sporting Rifle, or MSR platform hunting rifle. It’s a semi-automatic rifle that is used by a lot of hunters, but is also a popular choice for just going shooting at the gun range. So even if you don’t hunt regularly, you may enjoy having this gun for routine practice at your favorite range.
The rifle is equipped to take down more aggressive game. You would hunt animals that are fast and wily, or who have the potential to attack when they feel threatened by a human such as coyotes.
Tread Series Branded Accessories
The Tread line isn’t new to Sig, so with this rifle you can use some of the popular accessories associated with the line, like ambi-controls, interchangeable parts, different lengths of M-LOK handguards, and flip-up front sights that are a snap to install. There is also the new feature that will allow you to change up an adjustable stock for comb height and length of pull. You’ll be able to line up your shot faster and easier than ever before.
The finish of the gun is “Cerakote Elite Jungle,” a kind of a camouflage greenish-grey that will blend well into a wooded environment. The frame is aluminum for a lightweight feel that you won’t mind taking on an all day hunt. The weight of the gun including the magazine is only 7.5 lbs. You can imagine how nice this would feel in your hands with everything you need to carry on a hunt.
