As above. What should I get? Budget is up to $600.
With that budget---A P6 with a bunch of ammo. Mine feeds anything except 147gr ammo (wasn't designed for it back then...) but otherwise is an excellent gun for the money.
Is that the same as the P229?
a nice used west german p226 can be had for enough under 600 to leave money for ammo and spare mags. a sigpro 2022 can be had for $399
I recommend the older West German Sigs. The newer Exeter Sigs aren't the same quality.
Got my 228 CPO for under $600 w/ two mags ($579 I think). Feels pretty sweet. I have a 226 as well, but the 228 just feels right.
I'd go with a used P225.
G17 of coarse. Haha
Already have 4 Glocks and one is a G17 of course. I want something different.
No. The P6 is the German police version of the P225. It's a single stack magazine, instead of the staggered mag of the 226, 228 and 229.
Correct you are sir. The barrel's slightly different than the 225 and the hammer spring weight is 4 lbs more (I replaced mine anyways ). But, the guns are built like tanks and they're only $400 these days. Best SIG deal going IMO...
I have shot and handled the newer Sig's and they aren't near the same quality. Yes they are nice but I would much rather have my West German 228 then any newer Sig and I will never sell my 228.
OK. It's an option although I would prefer a double stack magazine since this will be a range gun only.
Sounds like you should look into the SigPro, PSA is running a deal on those
How is the P229? My friend got one today and I like the feel.
I would go with a P228. I think they are the best that Sig has to offer in a carry gun.
I have a P229 SAS Gen. 1 that's been swapped to 357SIG, and I love it. The only complaint I have is the factory grips were beautiful, but crap for shooting (too wide). The rubber Hogues it wears now are an improvement, but not by a lot. Eventually, it will get a set of G10 Hogue grips, unless SIG gets their heads out of their rump and sells an E2 grip kit that deletes the decocker lever.
He got one with the wood grips. They are wide but I did like the feel.
My SAS came with wood grips as well, but I'm not sure if SIG has changed the size of their wood grips for other models.
I really like the feel of the newer E2 grips, but seeing the empty decocker lever slot in the grips of a DAK gun drives me nuts.
Plenty of Sig P228 CPOs on the market right now for around $600. I would go with that one.
Second would be the P225/P6.
But then, but I'm a little partial to these 2 models.
