    The deal is a Sig 556, basic rifle, no sights other than a small flip up iron sight. This is NIB, comes with one 30 round mag. It is available to me for $1000.

    The second part is a case of Winchester ammo 5.56, Q3131, 55 gr. fmj, 1000 rounds in a sealed box. He wants $180.

    Lastly there is a ninety rounder magazine offered at $50. Are these any good? Is that a good price.

    I'm a pistol guy and I'm not up on rifles. are these three products good, are the prices good? Please help me out with your opinions yea or nay...

    Not sure about the gun and magazine, but BUY THE AMMO! That is half the price you can buy it for now.

    You have to buy the ammo for that price.

    I would take that ammo in a heartbeat

    I am not that familiar with the Sig556 other then the one I saw in a Rifle Class I took and it functioned fine but the user had some issues with the ergos

    The price on that 90 round AR mag is good, but what you will have to remeber when using it is all the ammo is on one side of the weapon and will drastically change the balance of the weapon

    That's a good point I hadn't thought of...thanks.

    OK, buy the ammo, I got that. It sounded good even without knowing a deal from my elbow.

    Is the rifle a good deal or should I look elsewhere. I will say I'd prefer the gas/piston type.

    Seems to be a good price. Most of what I've seen around here have been $1200-$1500. Offer him a cash deal for the whole lot. $1200 ?

    Good prices on all aspects. I'd buy the rifle, if only to try to sell it for more. Keep the 90-rounder... methinks it'll be worth big money after the election.

    If it is really NIB that is a good price on the Sig based on what I have seen. If the Sig 556 is a gun you want go for it.
