    My understanding is the CPO Sig's are usually worth the money. I've got a local guy who is a Sig dealer offering a CPO P229 in .357 for $550 (taxes and everything) He said he has a new .40 barrel for it that would run me $675 for both. Is it worth the extra $125 or should I just use it as a .357?

    My brother has the P229 in .40 and my intention was to just get the same thing. The price seems pretty good for the .357, just wasn't sure if the barrel was worth that.

    Sigs tend to be pretty expensive. The new P229 in .40 my brother bought cost him $750. The other two guns shops in the area had the same gun for $889 and $929. Not saying those are average prices...but with that in mind, a CPO doesn't seem bad for $550.

    Sounds like a good deal and it would definitely cost you more than $125 to get the barrel later if you want it. If you think you want both, grab it now.

    Yeah I looked around and it looks like $150 - $180 is average for a barrel. I might as well.

    Yeah, that's a good price. You could sell the .357 barrel on Sigforum.com if you're only going to use the .40, probably cover a good chunk of the cost for the swap barrel too.

    Hadn't even thought about selling the .357 but that's not a bad idea. Really no reason to keep both if I'd mainly be using the .40

    That's what I figured. $550 for everything, or $675 for everything.

    got my used 229 in .357 a year and a half ago for $450. It was an old police gun, had slight holster wear on the slide but it still shoots fine. Cleaned it up last week and it feels like a new gun.

    Better yet just ask him if he'll just sell it to you with the .40 barrel. It'll save you legwork down the road and he may be able to get more for it.

    I was going to send him an email and see if he would be up for that. He's on Gun Broker a lot so no reason he couldn't sell it there. What would be fair...the gun with the new .40 barrel for $600? That's pretty much taking off $75 for the used .357 one.
