    :eek:


    It's the most common used glock and you can find police trade ins for 350 +\-. A quick gunbroker search saw Traditions for 450-900. (Completed auctions) Fanboyism aside :confused:

    I take no insult in regard to this. Many a time I thought I had a silk purse and it turns out to be a pigs butt. I just know for each and every gun some have a specifice type gun for each situation. Again not to prsent my O/U as a $20,000 dolllar gun, my remark about a very nice weapon was just beacuse it is a very nice gun.

    tipoc I have read the reviews on this shotgun and stll feel it s a solid platform. As I have said in othe sections I do beleive my best bet is to sell ths out right and just buy what I need.
    Thanks to all

    I suppose it would make a difference what make or model of the shotgun one had.

    Some reviews I found had the O/U bought for $499. at Wal Mart.

    If the one the OP has is worth more than sell it for more.

    I have a Gen 4 Glock 22, an H&K USP 40, and a Sig P226 .40 S&W, and I like them all, I think the H&K has the best workmanship, the Glock carries the best, and the Sig is a better range gun. Strictly "MHO".

    I like both and have both.

    1) The SIG looks nicer and shoots really well. You'll have to learn to deal with the heavy double action trigger. You can take the SIG armorer's course and learn to do all the maintenance. The SIG shoots 40 S&W and 357 SIG in a softer way.

    2) The Glock is easy to work on. You can fix anything other than the barrel, slide and frame yourself. Their guns are accurate and reliable, just like the SIG. Recoil is harsher in 40 S&W and 357 SIG.

    Since it's THR, my duty is to tell you to buy both. I would compare the SIG P229R and Glock 23. If you go full size, look at the SIG P226 and Glock 17.

    I have carried both on duty, as with my department we are given a few choices of duty pistols in one caliber and we have to personally purchase them.

    The first pistol I ever bought was a sig 226 that I still own to this day, its a quality pistol. Upon entering the academy, I bought a 226 in .40 which I carried until about 8 months after I graduated the academy.

    I hated this pistol, not only did it not fire a few times in the academy, it was not in the same league as my older sig. The trigger wasnt very smooth, its got a plastic guide rod and it was just not of the same quality of my older sig.

    I then bought a Glock which has been flawless and made me a fan of the brand. Its simple and it works.


    On a side note, I have noticed several officers that have had serious rust issues with their pistols and magazines. Usually with the slide and the hammer....it seems like a serious problem lately.

    On a side note I would stay away from the XD, we recently removed them from service due to a few officers having failure to fires with the pistol. It was found out there is a serious weak link in the pistol and if it breaks the pistol does not work until sent back to a smith.

    Is it a secret weak link or can you share more information?

    Try both

    Walker,

    I have carried both guns on duty and would trust my life to either design. That said, I started with the GLOCK in 9m.m., then went to a SIG 226, same caliber and then went back to the GLOCK as it was lighter.

    Ask if you can shoot both of them with you buying the ammo and maybe lunch thrown in.

    Then decide which you would like to shoot. I always found the .40 S&W recoil to be more than I wanted in a GLOCK. That may be just me, so try both and decide which YOU LIKE.

    Jim

    Sigs and Glocks are both excellent guns. I own and shoot multiple models of both make. I think that Glocks are probably able to take more of a beating and still look good and function, especially because of the tennifer finish, but Sigs seem classier, more refined, and as though you're holding a true piece of engineering and mechanical beauty. I'd keep the Sig.

    I think you've made the right decision in selling your O/U and buying something else. For my money I would go with a SIG as their designs and ergonomics just suit me better than the comparable Glock model would.

    Depends what u want it for. The Glock is good For CCW and to leave in a hot car all summer long in the Florida heat, which is what I do. The Sig makes a great HD and tactical weapon. Which is what I do.

    The balance and triggers are pure art IMHO

    ...

    When I was offered to shoot a PO's Sig 226 40cal DAO or DAK and I offered to let him shoot my Beretta Px4 40/G DA/SA for some reason I thought I was shooting 45cal, until after the mag was empty and he said load another if you like and I said, you're out of 45 ammo.. lol He laughed too and pointed to all the 40 ammo.

    That was an eye-opener for me as the recoil was more of the push type, a tad softer, dare I say, than my wonderful soft shooting Px4 40.

    Not trying to sell ya a Px4/40 but it was his first time with a DA/SA 40 and his first DA shot into the following 9 SA shots were in a hole smaller than a quarter at aprox 23ft. He was amazed with both the rotating barrel and the lighter, balanced, polymer frame effect/forgiveness of my Px4

    They're (Sig/40) worth investing in, no doubts here

    I can never decide, so I have both. There are advantages to each. The SIGs are larger than the Glock 19/23/32, but tend to shoot better.

    There are 2 Glocks I like. My good ole 2nd gen 19 from 1991 (as time tested friend with sentimental value) and 3rd gen 18C (for collection and when in need!)

    Rest I have no use for nor desire to buy unless its one of those impulse buys.

    DA/SA with decocker over "safe action" for me. I do like the position of the Sig's decocker, too.

    Trade him heads up if you can, for the Glock. The Sig may take an extra 100 or so. Good luck.

    Not a hard choice for me. Value (which the op stated is not a critical concern) aside, the SIG for certain. Nothing wrong with the Glock for others, I'm sure, but I am most comfortable using a "traditional" da pistol due mostly to my many decades of experience with them. I don't think that I could ever get used to the trigger pull of a Glock-but that's just me.

    Iam a Sig guy. Don't get me wrong, Glocks are great,cheap and as reliable as any. I have just always preferred a Sig and a hammer.
