Sig P228 price check

Discussion in 'General Firearms Forum' started by meathead19, Dec 18, 2011.

  1. appears to be in 95% condition with matching proof marks on slide, barrel, etc.

    Has box and original mags.

    Is $500.00 a reasonable offer? Are these becoming "collectible?"

    Thanks.

    Seems reasonable to me for a FTF sale. At a shop, they'll probably run $550+

    Shoots nicer than the 229 imho.

    Still being manufactured in small runs, so not super collectible afaik.

    Price seems ok.

  4. Is the 228 really that much better than the 229?

    Yes the 229 seems a little top heavy. It was originally designed for the .40.

    It kind of reminds me of the difference between the .40 Hi Power and the 9mm Hi Power. Perhaps even more so.

    And yes $500 is a good deal. I got one a couple of years ago that was worn pretty bad for $400.

    One of my favorite pistols, wish I hadn't sold mine. I'd say well worth $500.

    They're not what I'd call "collectible", but they're great guns and a good buy for $500

    $500 for a 95% P228? I'd buy it in a heart beat.

    Very decent deal. I love my 228 and it DOES shoot and handle better than a 229. You got the money...get it. You wont regret it.

    $500.00 for what you described is a very good deal.

    pictures and more information would be most helpful for assessment.

    Gunbroker is chock full of Swiss Police imported 228's right now and most have little usage. They are running a tad under $500. The 228 is my favorite SIG. I have two.

    Eh, I've seen pics of those Swiss Police P228s. I wouldn't pay more than $450 for one, even if I were really wanting one. $400 would be more like it.

    ^^^ Definitely excellent looking condition, from this one view.
    If you have other views, and they show similar condition, then absolutely snatch it.
     
  16. That is not factory finish. It is "ceramic coated", and DAO.
     
  17. Are you saying it's an aftermarket finish/not original?

    If so, I assume that would decrease the value???
     
  18. $500.00 is a good price. To be collectible I think it would have to be either a first run , have a very low serial number, or a limited run pistol. If you buy it to collect then you don't need to either carry or shoot it.

    $500.00 I'd buy it.
