I got one recently and I know the older ones used to ship with a plastic hard case like my 556 did, but this one came in a cardboard box...a buddy just bid on one that is new for sale and it shows to come with a deluxe soft case with the SIG logo on it. I am trying to confirm if the gun store shorted me a soft case or not, or if this was an interim offering and the NEWEST stock rifles do not have anything except a cardboard box??? Thanks...I think my rifle was dated May or June '12

It was confirmed awhile ago that the plastic shipping boxes are no longer being used by Sig. They now come in a cardboard box only.

yes a LOT of inconsistencies from SIG...I got a 522 that was a newer date and was told they no longer offered the butt stock extension and mine came with it. The guy from SIG told me I was "lucky".

BUT gentleman, what I want to know is does anyone know of the 516 or any other SIG rifle shipping with a soft black rifle case included? I know the older ones had the blue hard case, and the newer ones have cardboard only, and some newer ones might still get the blue hard case out of "luck", but what about the soft tactical rifle case that has the SIG logo???

I think the tactical case was some kind of promotion.
