You'll find many LGS's say the Colt 6920 at Walmart isn't as good either. I think this is a clear case of FUD, they can't meet the price so try to stop you from going somewhere else to buy the same gun cheaper.

Please don't perpetuate these old myths. A SIG is a SIG is a SIG. A Colt is a Colt is a Colt.

If a SIG rep told you that, he was "stroking your fur."

Dude, I'm telling you it's EXACTLY the same. Not close, not just a different model number digit, the exact same gun from the exact same assembly line. Do you think Sig cares if Walmart sells it for $900 and your LGS sells it for $1100? Either way, Sig is selling it's M400. And when Walmart carries it, they are selling them by the truck load. Sounds like perhaps you should double check your LGS for honesty.

WalMart frequently sells guns with features made only for them. They were the only place that Ruger made a true 10-22 rifle for. It had a 22-inch barrel, and full size stock with the same length of pull as the 77. I bought one for a stepson to learn on, because it had the same feel as a center fire rifle.

They also had an 870, with a custom camo pattern, two barrels, and a nylon case that was exclusive to them.

So, I know that some of their guns are exclusive to them, but most of them aren't.

I understand what you are saying.....however, most of the things you listed are cosmetic or accessories. The center of the discussion was simply the Sig M400. You can see all of the "different versions" of the M400 are available by Sig here: http://www.sigsauer.com/CatalogProductList/rifles-m400.aspx
It's mainly cosmetic differences, or barrel length. But they are all otherwise built from the same parts.
