    Thumbs up Is this a good deal? I finally bought one ,looky-looky

    Centerfire has been selling the military version of the p225 (p6) for $269.00.
    AIM has them for $259.00

    Is this a good deal or are these junk?I don't mind the single stack,( 8 rounds is plenty enough to serve it's purpose).

    I really don't need it.But I like to jump on good deals when I can.

    Any thoughts?

    Found a great great site a while back that has this article about the P225..
    I'm interested as well, though the idea of an old beat up LE turn-in sort of gives me the willies... but if it's in great condition functionally, I can certainly live with some major finish-holster-wear if it goes bang every time and acts like a Sig aught to.

    http://www.hipowersandhandguns.com/C...uer%20P225.htm

    Addition: I meant to mention I actually saw a couple of these on one table at the gun show last weekend... Looks like a great carry gun... Though for specifically a carry gun, I'd be throwing in others like the Ruger SR9 as a choice, in a new gun for still relatively affordable, and 17 rounds.

    HEHE...I just finished reading that arcticle.

    Like my Star BM...I can live with some finish wear as long as it operates flawlessly.And with so many surplus "turn-ins" showing up....there's bound to be ample amounts of available parts.....

    If it's good enough for the LE to defend themselves with,It's good enough for me!

    I was going to order one tonight, but then I see both sites are backorder on these handguns. I want to get a .40, but I could save $150-200 and get this for now(well not now apparently).

    Thanks for the tipoff on this....

    This is a very good price on an excellent gun. The only caveat I'd offer is the the P225 has an elongated trigger guard compared to other SIGs, and doesn't fit a lot of holsters that fit other SIGs, at least the tightly-molded ones.

    That is almost a steal...well at least in my area. As I have yet to see a used Sig under $450 in decent condition, let alone better.

    I'd say it's a good deal considering. I saw these offered in Shotgun News recently.

    Well,I've convinced myself into getting one,two whould be even better...(that wasn't very hard).

    I guess I'll pre-order one and wait. Now to find a new FFL holder to do my transfer...The guy I usually have do my transfers has since retired to Florida.

    Thumbs up

    Well I ordered me a P6/225 from Aim and it came in today....It looks darn near close to new...for a firearm made in 1982 and stashed who knows where for the past few years,It looks mighty good!I am very pleased with this purchase.

    I installed my set of Sile walnut grips to see what she would look like.....mighty fine looking piece,don't you think?

    I do! Nice pistol. Very cool! Looks like a great little single-stack 9, and I bet quite carry-capable as well. And for a song and a dance!!!

    GREAT price for a Sig of any flavor, regardless the mag capacity.
    For that price, 8 rounds is just peachy, as far as I'm concerned.

    I really considered one of these P6 guns, but hadn't seen too much feedback from folks if they were having good luck with them or not.
    Hope yours turns into a great shooter... Will look forward to a range report.

    Might be a quick and easy way to have one in the house, and one on the person if I have to do any traveling, the wife has another Sig for BG's at home.
