    Thanks for looking. :supergrin:

    It will look different by the weekend. Of course I will bring it back up to showroom condition after burning a few rounds thru it. :supergrin:

    Now that you have it in your hot little hands, what are the alpha codes on the bottom of the barrel?

    Dang, that pistol looks new, looks like a good buy.

    My 226 is very reliable.

    Those stock sights are some of the best sights I have ever used! Simple and very affective sights, dot over bar excellent, very quick and accurate!
    Enjoy, Im jealous and need to find one myself. I got to stop hanging around on this forum, ugh.
    I hate the new 3 dot contrast sights on the new Sigs

    There are several German made Swiss police trade ins available on guns america now. They show wear, but for a carry piece they are fine.

    Some have the original box and test target included.

    I agree. I don't shoot the 3 dot style sights very well. The bar-dot style is much better for me!

    I took the P226 to the range today and fell head over heels in love with this thing. I put the finger grooved Hogues on it before hand, along with new grip screws, and a new recoil springs. The stock grips are really nice looking and a little slimmer, but I have a better grip with the Hogues. Of course it was trouble free as expected. It now joins my P229 as the two most accurate Sigs I have. It is hard to describe but I can hold the sight picture longer and more steady with these two guns. If you have been holding off or considering a Sig try out the P226. I am glad I bought this one for sure. Excellent firearm! [​IMG]
