Know they are getting scarce, wondered if anyone still had them for less than $300. Should have bought two.

Haven't seen any that cheap lately.

I heard that there was a shipment coming later this spring, and there were a few more staggered after that. Don't know the validity, so maybe I'm just perpetuating the rumor.

As far as I can tell, they're not at reasonable prices anymore. I would have jumped at $250 or so but now they are $300+ and often with only one mag, no holster, etc, etc.

I thought so, makes those Walther P5's and HK P7's look better.

SIG website has no mention of the P6 / 225 in their product lineup.

Um, you know people have been buying these as surplus police trade-ins imported from Europe (Germany). I don't believe these have been made (at least for the civilian, US market) in many years if ever. The P6 was a LEO model I believe.

I've seen one in the local pawn shop for somewhere around $500. Saw a P225 at a gunshow several months back for $320 something. Looked good, box, 2 mags. Came close to picking it up. They guy seemed willing to deal on it.

The P-6 is the German Police/Military model / name for the P-225.
It was never sold in the U.S. by SIG or anyone else.

The commercial P-225 was dropped by SIG in the U.S. several years ago because of low sales against the double-stack guns.

I own one. Came with a holster and two mags, and gun cleaning kit and rebuild kit with firing pin and new springs, the rebuild kit had a German name. The name of the German cop was signed in the holster. The gun works great, never misses, never jams. I paid $250.00 for it and had the slide Parkerized.

For a while there the P6's were BAR-NONE the best 9mm's for your buck, but alas, even they've gone up. I saw 3 of them at a local shop the other day for $325-$350 though, which isn't rediculous.

Today I became a Sig guy with a P6 on layaway-local store. It has practically no wear on finish as determined by this picky inspector: minor holster wear (2 on scale of 10). Top end inspection revealed a well oiled, very low mileage keeper!

Included for $373 incl. tax:
P6 in very good+ cond. w/ small import marks on left side; 2 mags; Blue Sig plastic box; Blk. Flip Leather holster; Blk. Leather mag holder (1);
:D

Obviously not the same deal, so I am likely throwing mud on the water, but the GM in Wichita has had one of the old butt-magazine release Sig 220's in 9mm for a while; last weekend I noticed it was marked down to $315, or thereabouts...I thought hard about it, but getting magazines, etc, and the mag release where it is would have made it more of a collector than anything...maybe someone bought it...it is a Sig 9mm after all

I always have to ask, but my gunshop almost always has some pretty good ex-LE guns in stock. I've picked up Sig P-220s and 226s on the cheap. I've sold most of them for some other needful guns, but did keep my ex-LE Sig P-226, which I like (ok, love) so much, I will never sell it.
