I know, I know, Biden.  But, not every gun has skyrocketed in price like Sigs currently are.  DAK police trade P229s that were unsellable at $339 are now actually bidding up to $580.  Used 226Rs are fetching north of $750, lol.  Wowser!

That is because of the quality. The German and West German Sigs are the new 57 Chevrolet of handguns. And in the current climate they will only go North. Buckle your seatbelt. Glad I held onto mine.
Link Posted: 2/10/2021 9:33:59 AM EDT
Yeah, and water it wet. The older German SIGS are not made anymore so since they are a nicely made gun their value goes up Pedo Joe or not. Same reason the West German SIGS are even more than the German SIGS.

Ohmygod... if anyone has a lead on a P228, please drop me a line.

I NEED ONE.

I bought a 1991 Sig 228 in pristine shape with three thirteen magazines for $950 USD on January 31st. It goes well with my 1988 P226 and 1994 Sig P229 .40 S&W.

Sig P series pistols IMHO are stupid easy to work on; not as easy as Glock or even S&W M&P’s, but with the Sig Combination tool plus the half moon punch it can easily be taken apart. I am looking for a P229R, even a DAK to convert over to DA/SA, and they are close or over $600.

I have will always  say this about the Ruger P Series: they may be cheaper that Sig P Series, but they are tough and run  right

I debated selling my MK25 not long ago, as it was a California model, but apparently those are going for even higher amounts now as the people in Cali. want them even more. I bought it years ago from a gun shop pretty cheap and made a decent profit on it. The P228 I had years ago was a pistol I never should have sold.
Link Posted: 2/13/2021 4:14:09 PM EDT
I got the signess bad starting around 2008.  I have 11 of the P series guns.  I recently sold a P245 DAO and did pretty well on it.  I don't think I could part with what I still have.

Last summer I got a Sig Red Box 226 in .357Sig. My LGS had a shitload of hi-cap mags for $15ea or so. I scored a case of ammo before the price insanity began. I'm real happy with this entire deal.

I never thought I would part with mine, but I did put my 93 West German P228 on SigTalk and the EE last year and had no takers for $1,000...just tire kickers.





I suppose it didn't help that I was only willing to do F2F and was only including the 2 mags that came with it.  I have 8 OEM Sig mags for her, 4 pre-ban and 4 post-ban.  




Perhaps I'll try again. Getting old enough that I'm thinking of lightening my load a bit.  Just need to determine what the pricing would be in this new world.

P229 and P228 are some of the best handguns ever made
Link Posted: 2/14/2021 12:52:52 AM EDT
Love my P228, also my first handgun purchase. Nothing pointed as naturally in my hand as one of them did.  Don’t shoot it as much any more which is a shame due to lack of backup parts.

It’s not just the W. German ones.

When the P220 Legion Carry SAO, limited series of 500, was released back in Nov (MSRP $1,329) prices on Gunbroker for them immediately shot up north of $3,000.



My LGS is a Master Dealer for SIG so I was able to get one at $1,190 when they arrived at the store. All 3 that came in that day were gone within the hour.

Gun prices are  ridiculous at this point; bought a pristine P228 DAO for $950 with three original zipper back magazines for my birthday. Getting parts Saturday to convert it over to DA/SA. I have been looking at used P229’s .40 S&W as a fun project to rebuild, even in DAK. prices are sky high right now compared to  2019. That and a H&K USP-9, the only gun I ever regretted selling

I've managed to amass a collection of three P220s, five P226s, a P225-A1, and a P229.

None of them are going anywhere, but it's nice to know I'm sitting on a small fortune.
Link Posted: 2/17/2021 8:58:37 AM EDT
93 P226 and a 94 P230 were 2 of my first pistols.  Other 2 were a Buckmark snd an IMEZ mak.

Link Posted: 2/24/2021 2:42:36 AM EDT
Down here, prices on Sigs are a bit higher but not what I'd call outrageous.

I'm seeing NIB samples selling at MSRP, no discounting at all. I figure that with emptying shelves they are having a tough time replacing stock and need to elevate the selling price a bit to help keep the doors open.

Recently I replaced a P229 that I sold a long time ago with an identical lightly used two barrel sample in 99% condition for just north of $700. It's not plastic and IMO worth it.

I lost three auctions on Gunbroker for three beat up P229 .40 S&W I was going. To strip down and rebuild with shirt bobbed hammer, Gray Guns internals, Hogue G10 grips, Trijicon  night sights, and Cerekoted M-17 FDE. All three went for Mid $500 to $600 USD. A  Year ago those guns were $349 used. For that price I ended up buying a P365 with four twelve round magazines and still waiting for my work P320.

I just picked mine up from my FFL today.  It definitely is a used pistol!  The grips date it as Jul 2003 (I don't think the grips had ever been removed!) After a couple of hours of cleaning, it now looks pretty good.  The grips are almost worn smooth, but other than that, it doesn't look too bad. One interesting thing was there was a sticker of the Dominican Republic flag on the baseplate of the magazine. I'm not sure if it came from the DR, or if the last owner just really liked the DR!

I just got off the phone with King's.  They are going to swap out the pistol with the nicest one their armorer can find out of the 65 they have remaining. They are sending me a pre-paid UPS shipping label and they are going to refund my FFL fees.  I guess it can't get any better than that.  I will post an update once the replacement pistol arrives.

They said the pistols came from FL, so the sticker was probably placed there by the LEO who carried that particular mag.  

Here are the photos from this morning, after some heavy duty cleaning last night

That's stand-up of them.

Sig's Service Plan might not be a bad idea. Have them do the Action Enhancement Package and SRT, too.

Sig does good work with the SSP/AEP/SRT.

I've never bought a new classic P-series Sig, always looking for deals, especially police trade-ins. I've had a bunch go through their shop for the above services, and my Legion-owning friends are jealous.

Bought a pristine Sig P228 DAO (1991 gun) with three original zipper magazines but no box for my birthday last month; just converted it to DA/SA, and added SRT package,  TJ Cuatoms blackened stainless steel grip screw and TJ Customs stainless steel Teflon coated short trigger . It has Trijicon night sights that were dead, so I sent slide back to Trijicon for re-lamp. For $57 USD it is a hard dead to beat.
