Time to find a new dealer. Michigan did away with this law a year and a half ago and now follows federal laws in this regard. I can tell you with absolute certainty that Top Gun Shooting Sports in Taylor will sell you this rifle, both legally and happily.
By the way, DO NOT consider any further having your father buy this for you! The SCOTUS recently ruled a similar transaction a straw purchase. Your father could become a felon!
ETA: Please refer to Senate Bill No. 761. This changed the length of a pistol in Michigan from any firearm under 30" in length to any firearm under 26" in length. The SIG 556xi folded length is 26.4".
thanks, yeah i'm going to a different gun shop, because it is a rifle. and yeah i found that out even though i would be doing the transfer LEGALLY, the gun shop doesn't know that, so i don't blame them.
