    Just picked up a used sig P229, its pretty clean, PO says it only had about 300 rounds through it, Is there anything in particular I should do with it beside the usually clean and lube? This is my first sig, so I want to make sure I do everything right

    Thanks

    Cool. If you had gotten the stainless slide/nitron base I was gonna direct you to a thread on sigforum regarding excessive wear and how to prevent it. In your case, get a ton of ammo and enjoy!
