    I got one of those in 9mm and just love it. I'm a 1911 guy at heart bit there's no denying just how nice a weapon Sig Sauer can be. I liked the P226 so much I got a 229 later. I'm wanting a P6/225 and a 220 too if my wallet would ever cooperate. It keeps hiding my money!

    coinkidink! My first and current Sig P226 9mm CPO non-rail.. Love it.. Just a bit big and hefty for concealed carry but a very solid weapon and a sweet shooter hopefully I'll learn enough to be worthy of. Enough of a good gun to warrant my consideration to do a slick cera-kote or similar refinish someday and make it a prom-queen. hehehe

    Enjoy and shoot safe w/ your new Sig.

    Congratulations to you, Jimmy. Sigs are indeed nice. I recently bought a P239/357sig that was a UCPO (uncertified pre-owned! ). I have added this to my concealed carry group. Well, the truth be known, all the handguns I own are for concealed carry. That includes my Sig P220 Compact which rides nicely in my Maxpedition Jumbo Versipack.

    Congrats from another Sig P226 (40 cal) owner. I love mine too. How much did it set you back? I've seen some 226's that were only a few $$$ less than new.

    Check out my Range Report.

    I paid $550 for it, it is the older model with no rigs on the rail..But someone posted how to translate the letter code to get the manufacturing year and mine was "KB" which translates to 1991. I can wait to try this gun out.

    Sweet! Looks like it's in far better shape finish-wise than mine is for sure.

    I was at the gun store yesterday and they have the P226R going for $705.00+tax (New in box). They only had one so I am calling them on Tuesday and seeing if more came in.

    hey wait a sec'. Where do I look and where are those codes.. I'll go grab it now and check.. I'd love to know when the thing was made. I do know some #'s on the slide were shaved I guess at factory during the cpo process.
