Default Do you think there are people out there that would trade a Sig 556 for...




I have not fired this one yet, but i'm thinking that since I have already had a couple of these, maybe I could try something different. I am still trying to decide.

GG&G Dominator-1 16" upper w/GG&G BUIS and folding front sight/gas block
Young Manufacturing Chrome National Match bolt carrier group
Magpul CTR Mil-Spec stock w/extended butpad
BOBRO Shorty forward grip
Kaiser Defense Lower
Samson G27 grip

Hmmmmmmm....................................

For the classic model? Those things should be $1600 new??? I dont even think the quality of parts on those are as nice as our AR's in many cases, the rear sight sucks, the handguards are questionable, and they come with bargain basement stocks on the base model.... I think i'm just looking for a different feel...

Obvioulsy if I did trade with someone, there would be cash involved as well... Plus, more than likely it would be a used 556 vs. new AR

Ya, those buyers guides were probably laid out in late '07- Obama was a nobody back then.

I think you might be able to find someone. Someone might have one that they just don't shoot much and might not have an AR. AR's are more interchangable with different calibers/uppers so it might have more appeal to someone.

Which model 556 are you looking for? Mine is just the plain 556 with the original furniture.
