    Full disclosure: This rifle has not been 100% for me, it's overly picky with mags and only runs well with full power 5.56 ammo. It completely choked on my hand loads ( that ran 100% in the old AR ).

    I know I could send it in to Sig and see if they'll warranty it, but I'm tired of dumping money into it, honestly.

    For this reason, I'm asking the $900 I paid for it...no gouging, no profiteering, no surprises.

    Just realize, that it is NOT a reliable gun in my mind, and priced accordingly in this market.

    I will include one used GI 30 round mag with it. Do not low ball, please, reality says if you're patient, you can send it in and have a new rifle in a few months ( if you find it doesn't work for you ).

    For trades: I will be going off " pre-stupid " pricing...your $350 police trade in G22 is not gonna get this straight across...;)

    Looking for :

    Basic Del-Ton or similar AR-15 ( the one you built for $500 last summer )

    Glock 22, 23 or 17 plus cash.

    .223 Saiga, converted or not, with mags

    SAR or WASR 3 with mags

    Remington 11-48 plus cash

    Savage 93 in .17HMR ( preferably lefty! ) , plus cash

    Garand

    M1 Carbine

    throw me some ideas

    NO SKSs!!!!!!!

    Really......I have had enough already....please....no SKS...please....:laugh:

    ETA: Want to keep this FTF in the Portland Metro area for now.

    Eta 2: Been a crazy amount of PMs, as you can guess, I will try and answer everyone tonight after work, thanks!

    Seriously though, it is a super nice SKS. Perhaps the nicest around.

    I'd send it to Sig and then get what market value. You're leaving a lot on the table with your tiredess and pangs of conscience. I suspect you know that already the way your inbox blew up though.
