I've scoured the interwebs for several hours, and made a dozen phone calls, and can't for the life of me find a 23.5" barreled version. For that matter I only found one 18" model.

It seems like SIG Sauer has pulled them for the time being. Discontinued or something like that.

There is a couple on Gunbroker, but prices have gone full retard since they can't import the barreled actions anymore.

Yeah, I read something about a German Gov't export ban slapped on Sig. I did talk to one Sig LE Dist., and he swears that he can get one, we'll see.....................

I went looking for one also, recently, and the last time I looked
at the Sig home page the gun wasn't listed.

When the "new" model hit the market Sig advertised the stock
had an "aluminum bedding block." Sniper Central did a nice review
and stated there was NO bedding block and that the stock was a
lot different from the previous model.

Sig received many bad comments about that missing bedding block
and started shipping the 3000 with inexpensive pillars. Then
buyers dried up the existing inventory and Sig didn't replenish
the inventory. I'm thinking it may have had something to do with the
false advertising.

Actually, the bedding block was there, and Sniper Central added an "Update" to their review, 'bout half way down the page. http://www.snipercentral.com/sig-sauer-ssg-3000-2/

I'm glad they solved that one, now all we have to do is find one
at a decent price. My local Walmart had one in the fall and that was
at a decent price of $1450, haven't seen any there since.

Thanks to Mel and CIB for the detective work.
