SIG P6 (P225) worth it?
Can't link but here is the text.

"This is a police trade in mint condition. I've put maybe 200 rounds through it, and it's a fantastic shot without a flaw. No holster wear. It was build 09/2001 and imported by Century Arms. I'm selling it with all you see in the pictures: two factory mags, one Promag after-market mag, the original shoulder holster, a DeSantis Pro Stealth holster, and the hardside case. I'm asking $395 OBO for local sale only. The thing to keep in mind here is that this thing is absolutely mint. You can take your chances online, but you're not likely to find one as cherry. "

Local guy selling this. $300 seems to be a good price. Few have sold for over $400 on Gunbroker in different states.

Worth it at $350? I'd be happy paying $325. Looks to be in good shape. I don't need it, but i'm intrigued by it. It looks like it is newer from 2001. I've just started reading up on them today.

Forgot to note that if I purchased it I would probably carry it a bit. As it seems less chunky than my P229 being single stack.

Can anyone confirm that it should fit any holster for a P225 correct?

I've owned a couple of P6's and actually owned a real P225 for a time. They are great guns as long as you don't mind having a low capacity single stack 9mm that may be cranky with JHP ammo. For a time, mags for these were very scarce and very expensive but I've seen them on the market again. The Pro Mag magazine is worthless so don't factor that in at all.

BTW, the P6 was a German police version of the commercial P225. The differences were a bit less "polish", a barrel designed only for FMJ ammo, and that goofy "ring" hammer. Parts are interchangeable with a P225...

If I was looking for a quality 9mm - I'd pay $350-$375 for it...

Please let me know if you are not interested and get me in touch with the seller. ;)

If I could find a Sig for 350 to 375, even if it was a 9mm, I would buy one just to have one in the collection. Never been a big fan of the 9mm for one reason or another.

Thanks guys! I might have just sold some ammo/mags so I have around $500 to spend so it is a matter of if I want this or pick up a Glock 30 or 23.

No comparison in my book...

Nothing against Glocks at all. I don't like them but they are well made guns. The amount of clean P6s on the market is finite - you can get a Glock anytime...

I agree. I'm waiting to hear back from the seller. He is only 10 minutes from me so I hope the thought of a quick sale allows me to get it for what I want.

He was originally asking $425 for it.

I'll let you know what turns up.
