    There is a market for everything, assuming you are asking a fair price.... That is a big assumption though for someone like yourself.

    Well it is un-fired, I paid $1,889.00 for it at WWG.............So I am think $450.00 should be a good deal for someone.

    If you're selling a Sig 556 pistol for $450 I'm buying. Ill pay shipping and FFL fees.

    PS. I don't care what you paid but retail is $1199. A few months back you could buy locally for about $1000.
    Is there nothing so sacred on this earth that you aren't willing to kill or die for?

Since it does not have a buffer tube due to the piston system, you can put a folding buttstock on it and SBR the dang thing. Having just gotten my first tax stamp back from the ATF, it will not be the last, the 556 pistol is a great platform to build into a SBR

    Saw one in a local gun shop recently for $1200. I left it there. While interesting, not something I would shoot often. About as practical as a tow hitch on a honda. Neat looking gun, but that is all I saw.

    I am aware of what the P556 is, it is NOT an AR type firearm. I have not heard the term 'assault pistol' before. Why call it that? Did it beat him up? Trying to sound cool? Come on, we do not need to perpetuate the term 'assault'! The antis are doing a great job of that without our help.
    AR stands for Armalite.

    A 556 is definitely not an AR. The only AR part is the magazine.

    I thought only someone like Fiend-stein or Jesse Jackson could coin such a phrase. But truly part of the problem the ignorance in our own ranks. So few gun owners know what an assault rifle is.

    What the Heck,...AGL,...?? (maybe you were extreme joking,.. right ??)
    markets are Squirrely, we all get hosed down by it all now and then,...but
    the "Bury it up Colorado Creek," deal,....it's not that bad

    or You could send it to me, I'll pay postage, and FFL fees, and sell it for $950 on Murphy's value estimate
    someone will want that thing
    and I can then trade those dollars in for a nice Walnut and Blue .243,...with a Fine Fixed 4x Scope,
    for a young boy needing a new Deer Rifle,...

    He'll kill critters with those same replacement $$, for the rest of his life,...

    for that thing you were wondering about,....thinking you'd just bury it,..
    or,... You bite the bullet, sell it for what it'll go for,...and do the same with the $$

    Just cause you can throw value like that in the dirt, doesn't mean it's the cool thing to do

    Interesting thread.

    "Well it is un-fired, I paid $1,889.00 for it at WWG.............So I am think $450.00 should be a good deal for someone"

    Did you sell it for the $450 that you thought was a good deal? Afterall, Murphy offered you full price and agreed to pay shipping and all fee's as well.

    The MSRP on Sig 556's and 556P's dropped $500 overnight back in 2010. This caused a lot of gun shops grief because they paid more than the new MSRP for the older models. They couldn't drop the prices without loosing money. It wasn't just the folks who bought them that got hosed, it was the shops too. I bought mine a year ago and it was one that the shop owner had sitting around since the high MSRP's. I paid $300 more than I could have online but that was worth it to me to keep it local. I bought enough accessories to balance out his loss I hope.
