    I've owned this since the model was first introduced. Never fired and lived in a Liberty Safe. No modifications. Can someone suggest it's current value, i.e., realistically? Thanks for your time and input. This one comes with a 16 inch barrel.

    I own 4 SIG 556 rifles: 556 & 556R Classics and 556 & 556R SWATs. I paid $895 last year for the 556-S, and $1,290 for the 556R-S six months prior to that. The classics were purchased new a decade ago. The 556-C was priced avg, but the 556R-C was bought post Sandy Hook and I am missing body parts from its absurd acquisition price. The SWAT's are rediculously heavy. The 556R-S is scary accurate, but only with just one round type. The 556-C is better than most "accurate" battle rifles. The 556-S is only battle rifle accurate. The 556R-C is minute-of-pie-plate accurate or barely acceptable. I owned one other 556R-C and it's accuracy was better than expected, but I lost it to a warranty claim. I think upwards of $1,200 would be a start for a NIB folder. My accurate 556R-S cannot be bought because it's my fantastic freak. I once shot a barbed wire metal line post in 1/2 @ 90 yards in 5 shots, simply because a hunting buddy said it couldn't be done with any battle rifle, yet alone one chambered in 7.62x39. Again my second 556R, a gen 2 classic, is more accurate past 50 yards if you throw it at the game, and it gets worse with each shot. No gunsmith can explain it for either. My best friend, a retired Marine Armorer, can only suppose that everything so right about the one is also so wrong with the other. My Colt M4 outshoots my 556s, but just barely. Why 4, I hog hunt in different states and keep them at each lease--AND--none of them has so much as hiccuped. The bad shooter is my ATV carry in heavy Texas brush, so it's found a place and purpose. Price is not firm yet on this line. The XI's and gen 1 556R's don't do well. 556's are doing better in 2019 than most, and I think they'll rise to, and then hang at 26 - 30 later and for some time thereafter. Reliability and folding stocks are a big plus. If you have a non-folder, I'd sell it now.
