I'm curious,why do you ask? are you affiliatted with sig? If the 308 version is anything like the classic version with the poor accuracy,bolt problems,and other issues not interested.I would probaly go with a proven platform,m1a,fal,g3, ect.If the 308-sig is up to the standards of the other systems mentioned for accuracy,dependabilty,toughness,then yes I'd be happy to own the sig 308.I'd go 2500.00 but it must be up to par with the other systems mentioned.

M4 stock with a .308 doesn't sound right. It needs a Magpul PRS or a UBR. If Sig can make it happen for less than $2,500 then I might consider it.

I won't buy one since I already own a Sig, I want something different. I want the HK MR762 next, and I'll gladly pay $2k-$3k for one next year when they come out.

I only paid $1330 for my Sig Classic with diopter and red dot so really not wanting to spend more than that.

I figured i would set the prices somewhat reasonable and comparable to other .308 variants. I also tried to keep the standard model price close to the cost of building an M1A with VLTOR Modstock.

If the Sig piston system out operated the POF gas system, then i would spend an extra few hundred.

SIG 308

With all the problems reported with the 556 I seriously doubt I'd be tempted tp by a SIG at any price unless all the quality issues real or imagined stopped appearing on the boards,

I have 4 sigs, ZERO have defects. So, I would be very comfortable buying another SIG in .308.

As long as SIG promises NOT TO MAKE THE MAGS.

What would be the highest price you could honestly pay for a SIG 308 variant? You can only afford one....
If the entire gun were made in Switzerland $5000, if it were made in the U.S.A. $1800 Max.

M1a, FAL, G3

Those are pretty tough standards to live up to. I'm sure that none of them came off the first year production line without needing improvements. Those are legendary battle rifles that improved with the user input of entire armies, over time. The Sig is a niche rifle for us in the states. It's not going to be bulletproof the first year, and it's going to sell for the market price of similar systems. From reading how disappointed you have been thus far, I suggest you go with one of the proven platforms. The general consensus seems to be that each one of them gives up something in either ergonomics/efficiency, maintenance/reliability, or accuracy.

If you want a BULLETPROOF weapon that gives up none of the above, in a .308 / 7.62nato format, be prepared to spend $3K+
