SIG Sauer brings to the market the new M400 TREAD Predator hunting rifle

After announcing it a couple of months ago at “Virtual” SHOT Show 2021, SIG Sauer now officially welcomes a new member to its TREAD hunting rifle line-up: the M400 TREAD Predator, an MSR platform designed specifically for predator hunting. The Predator is now shipping in the US and available at retailers. “The M400 TREAD Predator combines the popular features of the TREAD series of rifles, including ambi-controls and easily interchangeable TREAD branded accessories, with new attributes that optimize the M400 platform for hunters,” said Tom Taylor, Chief Marketing Officer and Executive Vice President, Commercial Sales. “The new features include a stock that easily adjusts for both length of pull, and comb height so the hunter can get properly aligned no matter the circumstance, QD mounts to attach a sling for easy carry, a new TREAD handguard system with a flat surface bottom, and a Cerakote Elite Jungle finish to minimize visibility and protect the rifle in woods and brush environments.”

With many of the TREAD features and design enhancements to suit the needs of hunters, the M400 TREAD Predator is aluminum frame semi-auto rifle chambered in 5.56 NATO using an AR-15 style gas-operated system. Among the other noteworthy features, a 16”/406 mm stainless steel threaded barrel with thread protector to eliminate snag points that can be removed to add a suppressor, a lightened free-float M-LOK 15” Predator handguard, and a hardened polished trigger. Being a member of the TREAD family, the SIG SAUER M400 TREAD Predator is fully compatible with the full line of TREAD  accessories, of course. These include varying lengths of M-LOK Handguards, a 3-chamber compensator, an ambidextrous charging handle made of aircraft-grade aluminum, flip-up front and rear iron sights, an M-LOK front sight adapter with co-witness height made of lightweight aluminum, and multiple configurations of M-LOK grip kits made of high-strength polymer. The rifle ships with a hunting 5-round polymer magazine.
