SIG Sauer has issued a mandatory recall to replace the hammer and trigger assembly in its SIG716 DMR, SIG516 Carbon Fiber and SIGM400 Predator lines. The company has determined that a limited n umber of rifles in its SIG716 DMR, SIG516 Carbon Fiber and SIGM400 Predator models were built with a two-stage SIG Sauer trigger that may have an improperly heat-treated hammer. Over time this could result in a trigger malfunction and create a significant safety hazard.
