Connection too slow to post pictures at the moment. Some holster wear, particularly on front of grip. Mine was/is mechanically excellent.

You can easily find police trade ins but I've never seen or heard of a P226 milsurp for sale.
I doubt that you'll find a P226 Brit milsurp because of Britain's attitudes towards selling milsurps and because they've only been in service about 10 years. The MOD is notorious for stretching the life of equipment. Most Brit units still use the HP even though it's supposedly being phased out.:D

The AIM price looks good. Anybody else know of any other sources?

A few other surplus houses have the same offer. $400-$420 is about all the range I've seen. For the record, the night sights are dead, at least on the ones I've seen.
Looked through my photo collection - don't have any worthwhile shots of my own. Have dozens of random 226's, though.
There is a gallery section of sigforum.com, if you want a sensory overload.

Found a picture of mine. Sorry about the quality -- the bright spots below mag release and at the top front of the trigger guard are reflection, not worn anodizing.

Benjamin, is that stippling factory on the front of the grip?

It is factory. For the record, it's not stippling, it's just a set of rather fine lines cut horizontally. Not checked, either.
