Sig Sauer M400 Swat

Hello I am new to the forum, pretty cool place. So yesterday I dropped nearly 2 grand between a brand new Sig M400 and a BUNCH of ammo for it. I did a little research before I bought it but I wanna here your opinions on the rifle. Is this going to be a good rifle and does anyone know if it will cycle 223 reliably.
Thanks

From all accounts, the M400 is a fine rifle.

The standard M400 sells for right at $1000 (I think $987 the last time I saw one) at Wal-Mart. The M400 SWAT is the same rifle with a drop-in 2-piece (non-free-float) quad rail, so I figure $1100 to $1150 max is a fair price. As long as you got $850-$900 worth of ammo, you did good.

I would like to have the much ammo for sure but why would I need 900 dollars worth of ammo? Are you saying it's gonna be so freakin' fun that I'm gonna wanna shoot the hell outta it?

He is saying that if you paid more than $1200 for the gun that, in his opinion, you overpaid.

He didn't necessarily over pay as prices are regional and vary state to state.

Here in Maryland we have an "assault weapons" ban going into effect October 1st. As everyone scrambles to "get theirs" before the ban, AR prices are still fairly high. Doing a transfer from out of state has become nearly impossible as most FFLs are currently sitting on 10 times their normal inventory due the current 60+ day MD State Police back log on approvals.

On another note, HBARs are selling like hot cakes, as they are cash-n-carry.

Makes ZERO sense, doesn't it?

Assault weapon ban....that's bull**** and infringing on our 2nd amendment rights. I am sorry to hear that you have to deal with that ****. But hey, at least you don't have to deal with the bullet button like I do over here in CA.
