Guy has a Gen2 556R,SIG red dot,and it has a Samson quadrail that might go with it,although at this point he wants to keep it.Also has 700 rounds of ammo and four mags.

He wants to trade for my 556,rear diopter sight added,and ammo on my part.

SIG rear diopters are unavailable from SIG currently and going for $200+ on the private market that I've seen (though ITAC supposedly makes them for SIG). Maybe you rather just buy a 556R?

I run a 556R with a samson quad rail, and eotech 512. It is freaking phenomninal! I stay with plastic mags rather than metal and the rifle loves tapco and bulgarian bullet mags. Just all around a spectacular weapon. I have a Browe optic on order for it that has the reticle set for the 7.62x39 round.

I say go for it my gen 2 556R has not one had an FTF issue in over 500 rounds.

Since both rifles are virtually identical (except calibers) I suppose it really depends on what caliber you want more. 5.56 or 7.62.

Wow I have a spare rear sig sight had no clue the value. I say stick with your 556 if you want a R buy one it does not sound like a great trade IMO
