    I want a Sig P-210. Ever single place on the net wants over $2,000 for a decent one. Anyone know of any shops around that sells these for under $2k other than the hard chromed on floating on the net.

    Looking for a P-210-6.

    As it happens, $2K is a reasonable price. A good one, in fact.
    Its all relative. If somebody wanted that for a Glock they'd get a big laugh and be shown the door.

    WOW! A few years ago, I came across a P210 for less than $1000. I walked away thinking it look very similar to a CZ 75 at almost 4 times the price...Now a days, I kick myself for not gobbling it up :eek:
    $2000 is steep but fair for what you're looking for...brown bag it for a while & enjoy the quest :D

    I didn't know sig 210 and decent price could be used in the same sentence.

    There are apparantly enough people wanting a P210 that they don't go under $2K. I think Collectors Firearms in Houston had an older one a while back for around $1800 but it had a pretty worn finish as I recall. They are just a fine piece of work, and unfortunately you have to pay to play, but good luck in the quest.

    The last 'decent price' SiG 210 pistols were a group of aluminum fram Danish service weapons that were imported and sold by DSA Arms from Barrington Illinois.
    This was at least eight years ago.
    They were priced from $895.00 to $1200.00 depending on condition and sold out in less than a month.
    The $895.00 guns now sell for $1500-$1800 and the $1200 guns sell for $2000 and up.

    I paid $1895 for one of my 210s and $2150 for the other.
    I sold both for a profit and now wish I had kept at least one of them.

    5 years from now, 2000$ will look like a good price.

    My 210's appear to appreciate at about $100/year right now. Not bad return on an investment of less then $1500 that I shoot routinely. I bought from Collector's here in Houston and yes they are top dollar but generally darn good quality.

    I suggest you do a search on the older posts and see what the going rate for 210's has been for the last say 5 years. I have just watched the prices go up with a smile!

    In very good condition, that is a steal.

    The aluminum framed m/49 exists only in several prototype specimens that command very high prices.

    The market defines what a "reasonable price" is.

    I wanted an HK P7 M10 about three years ago but thought that the asking/selling prices of $1100-1200 were ridiculous.

    A year ago, I went back and looked again. The asking/selling price is now $2000.

    Wish I had bought 10 or 20 of them at $1100 each. :rolleyes:

    I don't go back and look anymore...

    Did I mention that the first time I saw an HK 91 back in 1982 I wanted it, but thought that the asking price of $700 was "ridiculous"? :rolleyes:

    Guess I'll never learn...

    Trigger is smooth, but for some reason, I cannot group well with this pistol (do better with a Glock 26). Thing BITES.

    You can buy any number of LNIB SIG P210-6 pistols in Switzerland, for well under $1,200. Use the BATF Form 6 to import one or more for personal use. I recommend the serial number range between P59,001 and P94,000 or thereabouts, except for the early 70 thousands.
    The short tang of the P210 exposes the web of some shooters’ hand to being pinched by the hammer under the cycling of the slide. As I explained here, there are four ways to deal with hammer bite, in an increasing order of manliness: (i) weld up, glue, or bolt on an aftermarket beavertail frame tang extension; (ii) stone down the hammer tang about 1/8", as done by many Swiss target shooters; (iii) wear a shooting glove or a Band-Aid; and (iv) treat it as a character building opportunity. Real men look forward to love bites.
