The photo represents the overall condition of these Sig Sauer P226 police trades, all of which are in good condition.
Price is for one Sig Sauer P226 police trade-in pistol, which comes with two 12-round magazines. As with many used and police trade-in firearms, these may contain scratches and/or holster wear. This is not always the case, but should not be unexpected.
Please note that used firearms may contain surface rust, scratches and/or holster wear.
I was a Fort Worth Officer for 28 years and carried this type of firearm for the last 10 years. When a officer retired or is terminated most departments don’t reissue that officers weapon, instead they use it as a trade in in a new weapon for the next officer hired on. As a result these weapons are usually in very good shape and now become available as “Trade ins”. I purchased one of the SigSauer P226r Which was listed as “Good” for the value rating and was very pleased when I received it. It was in a case with all paperwork, manuals, the original safety lock, and in my opinion should have been valued as very good or like new in description. Super happy with this gun and would refer a friend to purchase in a heart beat. I also purchased 6 additional trade in magazines which were also very good condition. Thanks so much.
Pistol performed well out of the box. Night sights glow bright. Mags were in great shape. Had E2 grips, well worn, one side worse than the other. There was a large area on side of pistol where a large area of anodizng had been scraped off. Almost the entire length of the grip, 1/4 wide. many small dings. Finish worn multiple places, very sorry inside. Guessing it was rubbing against the seatbelt latch or something else on his belt. The surface damage was worse than anything showing good standards. Even worse than poor. I will refinish. Not sure I will buy another used here unless I have pictures of the exact item.
Firearm arrived a little faster than expected. The condition was good. I can tell the previous owner put a decent amount of rounds through it. Arrived with the black and gray sig box. Mine has the E2 grips with very few dings and wear marks. Still have yet to shoot it. I plan on adding a few mods such as a tac light/laser, night sights, and extended mags. Very happy with this purchase and will continue to shop from this company.
Was very pleased with my purchase. It was in very good condition.
Pistol was in mint condition. It was very filthy and stiff, but after cleaning it and lubing it, it's smooth as butter. Shoots great too. I've only shot 100rds through it. So far so good. I'm loving it.
Like another reviewer stated the pistol came in a box just wrapped up with paper but thats no big deal. Shipping was fast! Upon initial inspection the pistol looked pretty good. Slide and frame just had a little play. I was hoping this Sig wasn't shot out. Everything functioned as it should. Springs seemed good as well. It came with the Sig night sights, but they did not glow at all. Had some Trijicon HDXRs on order already so again no big deal.
The only thing that was making it show some age was the grips! It had the Hogue rubber finger groove wraparound grips on it. A dog might have been chewing on them! Lol. Not a fan of those grips anyway. I'll probably go with some G10s or just go the cheaper route with the OEM Sig grips. G10s are over priced anyway.
So to sum it all up I have a Sig P226 40 cal. Wished it was a 9mm for $400 including transfer and I could not be more pleased! I have about $375 worth of parts on order, but don't tell my wife. This winter I may Cerakote it, Magpul FDE with black slide and controls! SOSS thanks again for a great deal.
PS...I didn't shoot it yet. I will do that this weekend before disassembly and installation of upgrades!
The gun was shipped fast, it could have been better packed, it came in a FedEx box wrapped with paper. The condition was exceptional, very clean, nice shiny barrel with very little wear if any. The grip is almost in as-new condition. The slide of the one I have received doesn't say stainless, and the sights are standard non-tritium. Two Sig magazines were included and both are very clean and in good shape. I'm very happy with the purchase.
It's an accurate gun..though heavy considering I've been using Glock 40s all time. Received with an original SIG pistol case and 12+2 mags. It's dirty in and out from the box, I gave a good cleaning because it looks like it has never been taken care off. Anyhow, it's great and fun to shoot!
I would definitely recommend getting a good P226. I initially got a fair and wasn't satisfied, so I decided to try again and get a good, and it was definitely good! The good example I received was an E2 model that sticks to the cliche of carried a lot and shot a little!
I am seriously debating pressing buy on a 229 now as soon as I decide rail or not. This time my FFL said man you got a GOOD one when I walked in the door vs my last experience with a fair model 226.
I only rated performance a 3 to be neutral because I have not shot it, but all I can say is that the gun is in good shape. It's not mint or near mint, but I cant say enough that it is good.
If I had to nit pick the only negative is the night sights are dim, but that is expected. I even noticed I got better mags with the good model. The good model came with MECGAR mags instead of the USA made sig mags with the coating on them. Thanks Sportman's Outdoors SS for the great service.
Note: I was not paid nor did I receive anything for this review.
Very good pistol, being retired LE and now FFL dealer, I can tell you most trade in are shot little and carried much. The pistol is in excellent mechanical condition. You will not be hurt buying these pistols. Has night sites but are dim. New sights, recoil spring and some aluminum black, and will serve as my shop pistol for a long time to come. Just be advised they don't come with a box but well worth the money! Will do future business with this company! Thanks!
