sig pricing issues
I recently shot a sig sauer P226 and loved it. I had a little problem with the pricing issues. $750 was a problem for me. Is there anywhere that sells it around $500.
The Sig 226 is rock solid. Lots of my LEO friends swear by it. I would recommend buying a good used one via 1) gunbroker.com, or 2) a local dealer who caters to LEOs, because there's probably a few good used ones on consignment as officers trade up or whatever.
There around, just have to look a bit.
I would also recommend an used LE trade-in. I purchased an used LE 229 (the smaller version) for $500.00. No way would I buy a NIB SigSauer at their prices.
A cheaper alternative that might interest you are the used German P6's that are commonly priced about $349 or so. The P6 is a Sig 225, which is a single-stack 9mm. I have one that was purchased locally for $349 which included three mags, and it has proved to be an excellent and accurate shooter. Here is an example...

My local gun store was telling me they get alot of rebuilt guns back from Sig certified by them an such he quoted me a price of 599.95 for a 226. Has anyone ever heard of this?
Yes, they come in a red plastic box.
Thanks, thats certainly something to consider if new is a bit pricey. Thats the way I may go.

Any references in here from anyone that's gone with one of their P6's?
.. and I promise I'll search.. noticed sometimes in here just searching on model#'s like "92F" or similar doesn't pull anything.. odd.. as I know the numbers I've been putting in do indeed have TONs of discussion.
