    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.

    Good luck.

    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...

    Huh. Now I am confused. In one thread about Glock vs. HK vs. Beretta, you said price isn't an issue. But it is an issue for a SIG?

    In another thread, you said you are suddenly interested in a 1911, and have $650 to spend. But you only have $500 for a SIG?

    In yet two more threads, you are interested in a Glock, but in one you say you've shot Glocks "multiple times" and in the other you say you've only fired a Glock once.

    Do you want one pistol or a bunch of them, and what is your actual price limit? Help us understand!

    Thanks, thats certainly something to consider if new is a bit pricey. Thats the way I may go.

    ....... hmmmmmmmmm
    Might be a good way for a very budgeted newbie like myself to step up into a good (but used) Sig.

    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.
