SIG SAUER 551-A1 SWAT

I have a chance to buy one of these for $1300. I looked for the latest pricing, but can not find one for sale, not even on GB. Is this a good price for a near new example (unknown if it has a box). Would someone please tell me about these and if the price is a good deal? Thanks.

IF this is the one that takes Swiss mags and has the OEM style barrel setup, than yeah.

SIG 551A1 with a rail. Go for it, a standard SIG551A1 will cost you $1.6K and up.

These came with a plastic hard case. It's a steal for $1300.

A close cousin to the Beretta AR70, many had a Swiss folding stock and hammer forged barrel. They take unique magazines that aren't cheap, but they are available. Closest thing to a preban Sig 550 that I'll ever own.

I had a 2nd Gen. 556R that used AK mags and looked exactly like that. I sold it for $1100 last year. It never gave me any problems and I kinda regret selling it.

Buy it and RUN! If you decide to let it go, let me know.

That sucks, I was hoping to see you come up with it!

I have always wanted one, missed the boat when a local Gunshop sold one out from under me.... About the same time I started searching for one second hand I was activated for a trip to the sandbox. They went from somewhat tangible to unobtanium almost overnight!
