    Sig P226 -- is All Steel worth the cost?

    I noticed two different Sig P226's in 9mm ... they are both NEW guns.

    one is E26R-9-RTSS (2-tone) and has a stainless steel frame
    and that would cost me about $775


    other one is E26R-9-BSS-SRT with a hard anodized frame
    and that would cost me about $635



    My understanding is that an all stainless pistol will have less recoil and also will be more durable. I am using this mostly for self defense and the weight wont be an issue for carrying. For a guy who doesnt know much about these pistols...is that $140 a fair price difference...and if so...is it worth the added cost for an all steel P226?

    Thank you to anyone who can offer advice!!

    buy a used sig, send it to the factory for the $140 refurbish and save $300.... just MY opinion

    i am saying that sigs are great guns, but the minute you fire it, it becomes a used gun.... so why not buy a used sig, take advantage of the sig refurbish program, and save a butt ton of money?

    btw, i carry a sig p6 daily.

    I don't think he is going to be able to pick up a used one for THAT much less than new. The problem often times is finding something so personal such as this that gets so specific in taste on the used market; but if you can find a used example in acceptable condition then why not? Sig will even refinish the slide and frame on a stainless model to look like new. if you add up the refinishing and refurbishing though... you'd have to find a steal or else you could have just bought new for less and had no headache or waiting.
