Want to get a P229 Sig in 40 cal.
Have shot one & researched it on the internet and have a few questions for you Sig boys.
Some have slides--better/same as ones w/o slides?
Dak & Sas ?
There is a custom shop model available-I've read with Limited Life warrantee--worth it?
Any help will be appreciated.
I presume you're referring to the accessory rails...technically all semi-auto handguns have "slides."

Todd, one of the forum admins, just picked up a Gen 2 SAS P229 (no rails). You may want to get his feedback on what he thinks of it.
I was torn between the SAS and DAK. I like the DAK trigger action but like the others I really do not need a rail so my sweet wife got me the DAK for Chrismtmas. Maybe next Christmas I'll get the SAS who knows - I don't want to press my luck.
I really like the 229. I bought it in 40cal and have a 9mm drop in Barsto barrel so I can shoot cheaply at the range. The only other thing I have changed is to put the short trigger in because of my finger reach.
The SAS is much lighter and that makes it easier to carry all day plus I like the steamlined looks of it.
Todd range report?

Has the value of Sigs really shot up in the past year? I would expect used sigs to be more in the 500 range. But if I get a new CPO then I'm going to have to pay like $50 in tax, then shipping and the ffl fee so basically $100 more just to get it in my hands, so an independent seller would be nice
The Duty Tested or Certified Pre owned go around 550.00.
CPO's are great rides! I have a couple of them. For the casual shooter they are the way to go, Most look brand new.
I have a 229, I got it used but not a red box used (CPO). The 229 is a great weapon. I've been a 1911 guy all my shooting life but truth is truth. And that truth is Sig Sauer makes a great pistol. I have two not and want another (P220).
The CPO pistols are as good as new but are much more affordable.
Any way you slice it a Sig in the gun stable is a great addition.
