I want a Sig P-210. Ever single place on the net wants over $2,000 for a decent one. Anyone know of any shops around that sells these for under $2k other than the hard chromed on floating on the net.

Looking for a P-210-6.

As it happens, $2K is a reasonable price. A good one, in fact.
Its all relative. If somebody wanted that for a Glock they'd get a big laugh and be shown the door.

WOW! A few years ago, I came across a P210 for less than $1000. I walked away thinking it look very similar to a CZ 75 at almost 4 times the price...Now a days, I kick myself for not gobbling it up :o
$2000 is steep but fair for what you're looking for...brown bag it for a while & enjoy the quest :D

I didn't know sig 210 and decent price could be used in the same sentence.

There are apparantly enough people wanting a P210 that they don't go under $2K. I think Collectors Firearms in Houston had an older one a while back for around $1800 but it had a pretty worn finish as I recall. They are just a fine piece of work, and unfortunately you have to pay to play, but good luck in the quest.

The last 'decent price' SiG 210 pistols were a group of aluminum fram Danish service weapons that were imported and sold by DSA Arms from Barrington Illinois.
This was at least eight years ago.
They were priced from $895.00 to $1200.00 depending on condition and sold out in less than a month.
The $895.00 guns now sell for $1500-$1800 and the $1200 guns sell for $2000 and up.

I paid $1895 for one of my 210s and $2150 for the other.
I sold both for a profit and now wish I had kept at least one of them.

5 years from now, 2000$ will look like a good price.

My 210's appear to appreciate at about $100/year right now. Not bad return on an investment of less then $1500 that I shoot routinely. I bought from Collector's here in Houston and yes they are top dollar but generally darn good quality.

I suggest you do a search on the older posts and see what the going rate for 210's has been for the last say 5 years. I have just watched the prices go up with a smile!

In very good condition, that is a steal.

The market defines what a "reasonable price" is.

I wanted an HK P7 M10 about three years ago but thought that the asking/selling prices of $1100-1200 were ridiculous.

A year ago, I went back and looked again. The asking/selling price is now $2000.

Wish I had bought 10 or 20 of them at $1100 each. :rolleyes:

I don't go back and look anymore...

Did I mention that the first time I saw an HK 91 back in 1982 I wanted it, but thought that the asking price of $700 was "ridiculous"? :rolleyes:

Guess I'll never learn...

Trigger is smooth, but for some reason, I cannot group well with this pistol (do better with a Glock 26). Thing BITES.

Looking for a P-210-6.You can buy any number of LNIB SIG P210-6 pistols in Switzerland, for well under $1,200. Use the BATF Form 6 to import one or more for personal use. I recommend the serial number range between P59,001 and P94,000 or thereabouts, except for the early 70 thousands. Trigger is smooth, but for some reason, I cannot group well with this pistol (do better with a Glock 26). Thing BITES.The short tang of the P210 exposes the web of some shooters’ hand to being pinched by the hammer under the cycling of the slide. As I explained here (http://larvatus.livejournal.com/33732.html), there are four ways to deal with hammer bite, in an increasing order of manliness: (i) weld up, glue (http://nill-griffe.de/baseportal/Site/Products/GriffSucheDetail&OrderNo_ueber=SI96&land=usa&pidd=H37XY1950K326&kd_id), or bolt on an aftermarket beavertail frame tang extension (http://nill-griffe.de/baseportal/Site/Products/GriffSucheDetail&OrderNo_ueber=SI94&land=usa&pidd=H37XY1950K326&kd_id=); (ii) stone down the hammer tang about 1/8", as done by many Swiss target shooters; (iii) wear a shooting glove or a Band-Aid; and (iv) treat it as a character building opportunity. Real men look forward to love bites.
