However, if you care about the ability to shoot multiple calibers from one gun then consider looking for the .40SW or .357 Sig. This allows you to swap out the barrel and shoot 3 calibers from the same gun, 9mm, .40SW, and .357 sig. (To enable yo to swap barrels you must start with the larger platform of the .40SW and .357 Sig. The 9mm is too narrow for the lager calibers).
These barrels can be had from several different companies such as "Barsto" but I always picked up the spare barrels used off the various gun forums for about 80-100 dollars.
Carries well in an OWB Galco holster too. Glad you got one!
That thing is immaculate, I'd half expect to see the factory tape and tags on it.
That is my dream gun, exactly. Especially without the rails. You're lucky. If they weren't $750 new, I would have gotten one long ago.
As it sits, I'm just trying to find a Sig Pro for $450 and call it good enough, but everyone local is either sold out or has hiked prices, and I'm not going to pay out the arse for a "plastic" substitute for a P229
i love my 229r elite in .40 ($899) and my 239 in 9mm. ($699).
I'd say you got a killer deal.
A gun stamped KG would have been manufactured in 96.
If it has proofmarks
