    Sig Sauer P6 (p225) German, Im assuming police pistol.
    My dad ran into a pawn shop owner that had a few of these for sale. He was wanting $379 each but my dad talked him down to $310 if he bought the last 2 he had. My dad gave me the pick of the two. I liked this one alot better because the manual and the test target were still with it.
    Side of the box has the name of whoever it was issued to. My dad's has 3 different guy's names

    I love its fit and feel in my hand. The lack of a safety leaves something to be desired but I like the slide release and decocker, which my CZ-52 doesnt have. Not a very bad gun. Although it seems 9mm has more than doubled in a couple years

    It was made in 1983. Its pretty good shape for its age but has some noticeable holster wear

    That one looks pretty clean.

    :cool: dad

    The safety mechanisms on the SIG P's are all passive and internal. Don't pull the trigger and it won't go bang.

    J&G Sales keeps advertising they have used German police Sig P6 225's for I think it was $259. Keep calling and they keep telling me the shipment hasn't arrived yet. Hopefully soon! They said with the last shipment they had all of them looked brand new or close to it. Hopefully I will be driving up to Prescott to pick one up soon!

    LOL I bought 5 of these guns for $225 each like 4 months ago, sold 4 of them last month at a healthy profit since supplies have dried up.

    They're great guns. Enjoy your purchase.

    i almost bought one of those a couple of weeks ago. gander had 2 of them but they wanted 449.00 for them, and they both had significant holster wear. bluing totally worn of in spots, and what appeared to be surface rust in some spots.


    i ended up with a very slightly used cz-75 for a little over 3
