I got a P226 9MM CPO 3 weeks ago from Bud's. I paid $575 for it. It turned out to be 1990 W. German made P226. I don't think Bud's knew they where getting Germans because after i ordered mine the price went up to $664 for their CPO's. It is in new condition and has 3 matching ser# on it. I couldn't be happier with this pistol. I never dreamed i would get a German made P226. It is more accurate the my 58yr old eye's and hands can shoot it. I am amassed with this pistol and the CPO program. This is my first post and like this forum very much. I tryed to add photos from my desk top of my pistol and can't figure out how to do it. I guess i am to old.
