    What would be the use of the gun you are looking to buy. Target shooting, concealed carry, home defense?

    None of the above. Just to add to the collection.

    Look at a P226 or a P229. There are different cailbers to choose from for both and they are both good shooters. Good luck in your search.

    226 is probably one of the best representations of the Sig line. You can find police trade-in versions for under around $500 after fees and such. Depends on if you mind wear in a piece you are buying as a collector.

    I don't mind. I'm not really collecting guns for what they are worth. They have value to me and that's all I care about. I have never and probably will never sale one of my guns. Unless I absolutely have to.

    P226 in 9MM. Probably the most popular handgun in the world.:)

    If its for the collection then I'd go for one of the less seen models like the P210, X5 or sport series.

    Usually have to look around but atleast its something a little different if thats what your after.

    Also what about a Sig P6/P225?

    If you have no need to make a carry gun of it (and you possess reasonably sized man hands), get a P210, P220, P226, or 1911.

    Okay, the $2K+ P210 may be a little over the top. But if being small and compact is not an issue, the four guns listed above are arguably the best current Sigs. Apart from the P210, all are available in various finishes, designs, and price points, and they can be had for $700-800 (maybe better). Or you can go for a fancy version and spend a great deal more.

    Calibers available: 9mm, 357sig, 40sw, 45acp, and even 22lr.

    I'm turned off by the P250, P290, and Mosquito.
    I'd love to add a P239 (or P225/P6, P245) but they're more limited capacity carry guns.
    I also like the P228/P229.
    The P238, P230, P232, and P938 are all probably excellent guns...but again, carry specific.

    Love my p229. In my opinion can't go wrong with a classic P series sig.

    I also have the P229 and carried it for over 12yrs. I finally picked up a P226 to add to my collection of Classic Sig pistols. You can not go wrong with any pistol that has the name SIG on it.

    After much research and trying several different ones, I bought a P229 with the SRT trigger. I have medium sized hands and I found the P226 to be a little bit too big in my hands. The new 229 (E2) grips are a perfect for me and the gun is a great representation of the classic Sig quality and design. Love it. I have a friend with a G19 Ver 4, loved it....until she shot my Sig. Sold it and bought a P229. Yes, it is interchangeable in terms of caliber, so if you buy a 9mm, you can buy a conversion kit to .22, .40 or . 357 Sig. So it's flexible as well. A bit pricey, but worth the cost...

    Let us know how you end up...
