Default Sig 226 trade?

I absolutely love my Sig, however it is not comfortable to conceal carry. I am looking at either a Xds or a Kahr CM. Due to my current financial situation I am considering trading in my sig for one of these. Is this a bad idea that I will soon regret. I have a feeling that will be the case, however I need a comoact carry gun.

How good of shape is the Sig? Seems like a trade down in value to me.

Sounds regrettable to me. Picture angus to top round, I like the CM9 but not a good trade for a 226. Just doesn't add up.

Its in excellent condition. I bought it brand new and have fired about 1000 rounds through it. I keep my guns very clean and lubricated. I know that it is a trade down that's why I am on the fence. Its a 40 in case that has any merit on this decision. I am definitely leaning towards not making the trade, however like I said I need a compact carry . Tough decision.

Keep it and save your pennies until u can buy one. Even if u stash $1 a day until u can afford it. U will regret getting rid of it and its not a fair trade anyway.

Trade it for something like a bobtail commander, neither the Kahr nor the XDs are comparable to the SIG unless you are getting some cash in the deal.

Thanks guys. I feel the same way, I guess I just needed some nudging in the direction I was leaning. I will just save a little here and there and keep my Sig.

One last one. My buddy just told me he who would trade me his CZ75 compact straight across. I don't know anything about CZ except a few reviews I read saying they are solid guns. Would this be a fair trade or is he trying to pull a fast one on me.

Comparable to the other 2 guns...I bought mine new for $499.00, still about half the value of a new SIG.

Yeah I payed 830 for mine brand new about 2 years ago. Sounds like I would be on the short end of the stick. I Will just save and buy a new compact pistol. Now to decide on which one?
