That's an awesome deal, but I would be weary. Look them over really well. Police Officers are well known for not taking care of their service pistols.
The good thing about the Police trade-ins is that the majority of them have been shot very little, but they have a lot of holster wear.

Below is a link to a "Sig Inspection" article on the Gray Guns website. It may assist you in picking out a good Sig.

well here in Houston, I have seen it sold for 450.
I usually buy locally because I can see the condition.

I hate to bring up the rear, but I too, would like to know the dealer's name. I have two P series SIG's, including a nickel 1996 P220, and they are great guns.

The website is vanceoutdoors.com and it is only a 1 day deal. If it doesn't pop up when you go to the site just click the deal of the day banner. It is a local shop near me and I have bought alot of from them. Great guys...Russ

No, sorry, I haven't. It was advertised in their weekly (email) sales circular. I would purchase one, but prefer the 9mm and already own 3 P226's.

That is an excellent price for a 220.

We had a police supply house that was selling the 226 9mm for $399 (remember this is in CA), but when they sold out the LGSs were selling the same gun for $450. The 229 is going for $479 and the 220 for over $500

You can't go wrong with a LE trade-in 220 for less than $400...unless you get the one belonging to the rare officer who actually practiced...most will only have holster wear

I've just sold my XDM, so I think I'm going to take the plunge an order a P229 40 from Express Police Supply. I just emailed them and retired military qualifies for their first responder price, so I might have to check out their new Sig's.............

Vance's is in Columbus Ohio. They got a whole bunch of I was told State Patrol guns recently. I bought my P220 there. It helps to go in person and select, some have more wear than others. I would have no problems dealing with them, they are the biggest/best priced gunstore in Columbus.
They did have these in the store for $449 with three mags, I guess this was a special deal.

The thing to watch for is wear on the frame rails; Sigs like some wet lube there or you can gall the aluminum rails. Mine was a German made 1996 model with slight holster wear and like-new inside.
