SIG SAUER is pleased to announce the expansion of the M400 TREAD series of rifles with the introduction of the M400 TREAD SNAKEBITE SE. The new TREAD Snakebite SE offers the same features of the amazing TREAD Snakebite model with some added upgrades. The unique Flashhider/Compensator combo provides minimal flash and reduced muzzle rise, a two-stage Matchlite trigger delivers an ultralight trigger pull for increased accuracy and the Cerakote finished receivers and barrels offer maximum protection. And like all TREAD models, the Snakebite SE works with the complete line of TREAD accessories.
The TREAD branded accessories that can be purchased separately are:
- Hybrid Compensator/Flash Hider
- Enhanced 13" Free Floating Handguard
- 2-Stage Match Trigger
- Cerakote Elite Finish
- Carbon Steel Barrel
- Compatible with all TREAD Accessories
The only thing holding me back from giving this 5-stars was the limited picatinny mount options on the top for optical. While I do appreciate the overall design and find it less busy as other ARs, I didn't have any room for additional attachments after install my hybrid red dot + magnifier.
However, that being said, overall the firearm looks amazing and shot even better. I have yet to put a full test into as I was limited to sighting in my optic and the limited time at the range on a weekend but I have complete faith in it based on the other positive reviews of the M400 Tread platform.
If you have the budget and don't want to spend 2k+ on an AR but want upgraded features that you'd have to mod yourself, this is the platform for you. Definitely recommend it and look forward to more range time with it.
