    I had picked up a Swiss police trade in Sig P228 a while back and just sent it off to Sig for service and installation of night sights. I did not come with a case nor did it have the original grips, just some worn Hogue grips. Prior to sending it in I lost one of the grip screws (old age/bad eyesight) I'm thinking. Anyways it had some slide play in it and the finish was worn but it was a solid gun. I usualy wait for them to run a special but I was impatient and dind't want to wait. So I sent it off, all told it cost me just under $200 with shipping and such. I picked up the gun this morning at my local Fed Ex hub and boy was I impressed. At first I thought they sent back the wrong gun but it was mine. In addition to the servicing and night sight installation they had replaced the worn hogue grips with Sig factory P228 grips (including the missing screw) and they had as a courtesy refinished the slide as its finish was really worn. I'll add more pics later as this one I took with my Iphone, but the gun looks great! I couldn't be happier! Will be writing them a very nice note when I get home tonight. Oh and they sent it back in a nice black/grey Sig case too. Can't forget that........... that's a lot of work, all done in less than 2 weeks for less than $200........... Way to go Sig!

    The Sig Service Plan is highly recommended on various boards. Looks like they lived up to the hype.

    Very nice! I bought a CPO (certified pre-owned) P229 for $500 and it looks and functions like a brand new gun. Why pay new gun prices when you can find a CPO or used one for a lot less?

    Wow! That's impressive. In this day and age it's nice to see there are still companies that understand great customer service is a way to develop lifelong customers. There aren't many out there in any industry that look for ways to exceed customer expectations.

    Awesome! Got any shots of the refinished other side?

    I have a Swiss p228 myself that I'd like to either refinish (but considering parting with it). Refinishing would likely cover the Zurich police logo, though...

    I'm getting hesitent to keep recommending used P-226s and P-228s as the best value in used semi-autos, as the more people that uncover this secret, the fewer of these quality pieces will be available.

    SIG's service is second to none with regard to the package the OP described. And it's so easy to replace springs and parts in the 226/228 platform, one should be able to make his/her SIG last forever.
