If you owned the 556 classic swat and a p226 .40cal pistol and was just given a $500.00 gift card, what would you buy from this store? My 556 is pretty bare (I have a tk11r2 taclight with mount but I also use it on my shotgun).

I would first get a 357SIG barrel for the 226. Then after that I don't know. I have the STL900 light but I wouldn't choose it over a Surefire or other major brand. It's certainly not worth thew $215 they want. I paid $140 and I wouldn't do it again.

#1 Pelican case
#2 Magazines for your P226
#3 Parts kit for 556 and 226
#4 NATO style cleaning kit for 556 (just because)
or
#5 22LR X-change kit for your 226 ($421 from Sig, but you have the coupon)

The .22 conversion will pretty much eat up your coupon, maybe add one of the Sig 556 T-shirts :?: or any combination of #2, 3 or 4.

Gives you something to think about.

1. 226 Mags (especially the SCT mags)
2. Sig Custom Shop work?
3. Sig Armorers toolkit?
4. 22 Caliber Change for the 226

Maybe the Classic Sig Foreends for your 556. IDK.

Have fun with it for sure though! I'm trying to decide if I get offered the 500 instead of cash will I take it...

Cant buy guns direct from Sig and cant use the Gift card at a gun shop so you have to be content to buy from the sig store.
The .22 rimfire conversion is a cheap way to practice. I have a Kimber conversion for my 1911 TRP just to play with. You can never have enough mags and these would be factory to boot, the .357 barrel would give you another option to shoot but also another caliber to feed.
As far as 556 stuff just generally speaking you can get better prices from other places especially with sights, optics and so on if you have the cash to buy from the manufacture, ITAC I think. Havent been able to use my sig mags yet so cant say anything about those.
One of the guys on here negotiated a little bit and got $590 worth of stuff might be worth a try. Dont know which I will do, finally got the ffl to sign the letter saying he would not release the yellow sheet and the wife got it sent off today.
Either way with the price I paid for the 556 either the rebate or the gift card will put my final price well under a grand for the gun which works for me. I wonder if the gift card could be used for classes at the academy or if they are two seperate entities. Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmm will have to check on that.

whats in the parts kit for the 556?
I believe it's the following, I have one in my spare parts box, but I'm too lazy to look.

Parts kit for the SIG556 rifle. This kit includes the following components and is for the original style trigger casing:
- (1) Firing pin
- (1) Firing pin spring
- (1) Take down pin plunger, machined
- (1) Take down plunger spring
- (1) Recoil spring
- (1) Spring pin
- (1) Support washer
- (1) Crush washer
:idea:
Turns out that I got motivated, the above list is what I have in my parts box, I got it from Sig when I received my 556 last July. They didn't just give it to me, I ordered it with my rifle as I can order direct from Sig (LEO order). The list I printed is courtesy of Colorado Gun Sales web site, same kit.

Aubie,

Did you buy yet? If not, you may want to talk them down 20% on any accessories. They offer up to 20% off the store on new gun purchases. I don't think they advertise it very well.

Let us know how things pan out.
