    NIGHTLORD,

    My P-6 absolutely has not been upgraded. As I said, it will not feed hollow points including the REMINGTON 115 grain jhp. These seem to work in everything else, but not the P-6 that I have. Exact opposite for my 225. Also, trigger is fine on my 225.

    Jim

    Purchased today for 850. Box 3 mags threaded barrel test target etc. Put a box of s&b fmj and 2 mags of federal 124gr hst through with no issues. Soft recoil easy to make hits on my small steel target. Fits In my g19 holster. Serial # looks like 2009 or10. Will post a photo.

    Beauty! Congrats. As you said it looks brand new. With the barrel and the extra mag you did really well IMO. Enjoy it!

    Outstanding! A far superior firearm to the cookie-cutter polystrikers on the market today.

    About 10 years ago, I paid $319 for my Sig P6, a surplus W. German police version of the P225. These have increased in value since then, but nine bills for a civilian P225 seems high. There were a lot of P6’s available on the surplus market back when I got mine, so you might save yourself some money if you go for a P6 vs. a P225. I’d avoid the ProMag aftermarket magazines, in favor of OEM mags in serviceable condition at a decent price (I have 7 OEM magazines).

    P225s are not the same as P6es and have always gone for at least a couple hundred more. 225s are relatively rare and are very desirable among SIG cognoscenti. A nice P225 is a very good deal at $500-$600ish, and an as-new one with $150-200 of extras including a relatively rare threaded barrel is a good deal at $850 IMO. Besides, prices now are not what they were 10 years ago. For anything gun related.

    Right, $900 would get my P225 right away. I'd stage something else for home defense.

    I may have overpaid but I might not see another in this condition locally. I won't buy online.

    Overpay a bit once, get exactly what you want, and enjoy all the time!

    A couple hundred more than my P6 got me my P228 which “IMHO” is a better shooting gun than a P225!

    What a beauty. I also have one (JH = '87) almost as purdy, with the typical "squashed bug" symbol under the chin, which most of us know means proofed Kiel Germany.

    My P225 looked just like yours when I first bought it new about twenty years ago. I replaced the plastic grips with Nulls. I've no idea if it was made in Germany or not, but it's a one-stack pistol and the sights were not night sights, just regular.

    Mine is the most "finished-challenged" pistol I own. Heck, it might actually be the ugliest GUN I own. :D
    I have purposely never tried to refinish or touch it up, since it is my go-to carry piece. Clean, oil, shoot, repeat......

    Congratulations! You can get a better idea of the build year of your P225 from the two-letter proof date code that should be on the bottom front slide chin of your pistoll and following the link provided by Ignition Override to decode it.
