    My son has been interested in shooting some pistol competitions (already shoots rifles in F Class). Been on the lookout for a suitable pistol and came across this P229 SAS at my LGS. It included all the extras you see here (12 mags, 2 gun holsters and 3 mag holders). Pretty much everything he would need for an IDPA match. (Also, sights had been upgraded too)

    Cool! The SIGSauer 220-series is my favorite family of duty-style pistols. :) I owned a Robar-tuned P-226 years ago that I traded away, so all I have left is a P-228

    Let us know how it shoots for you when you get a chance to fire it :thumbup:.

    Stay safe.

    Solid choice with a nice set of mags and accessories. I always like the non railed SAS frames and slides.

    A great deal, good kit , adequate magazines :) and good looking holsters. The 229 is about my favorite Sig , over all. Having your son take up the sport; PRICELESS !

    My first and only Sig is a P 320 in .45acp. Makes me look like a great shot.

    Thank you for buying this gun and not the P320 abomination.

    I hate it when I click on a new Sig thread and instead of seeing a beautiful p-series it's a 320. Even worse if it's a Legion :mad:

    I have an M11-A1 and a P228 and these are both great shooters if you train and practice with them. You got a nice setup with a lot of mags and a few nice holsters, and you can never have enough of either.

    900$ out the door with everything included is a great purchase, especially considering the fact that that's how much one would spend on those accessories anyway.
    That pistol is going to be a great shooter that's for sure.

    Congrats on the most excellent purchase! And I thought I did really good getting a LNIB P229R with 3 extra mags and night sights! With all of those mags and the two holsters and three mag holders that's like the Deal of the Century!

    Nice acquisition! Be forewarned, SIGs are addictive.

    Love the looks of a P series without the rail!

    Very cool. I love me some Sigs, CZs, and 1911s.

    I think you win the Understatement of the Day award. I'm not an expert on Sig prices, but that sounds like a fantastic deal. Heck, the magazines alone ought to be ~$300 worth or so. I hope you'll bring us a range report soon.

    Me either, so I did a little after-the-fact researching (this is a bad habit of mine)

    6 of the 12 magazines are Sig brand. Internet prices for those run $40-$50 ea. Bottom line rough math, I basically got all the accessories thrown in for little or no costs.
