    I found one at a local FFL I chat with for 379 slight bit of holster wear around the muzzle, thats about it. What's the going rate on these things used?

    I got mine used for about $425 a few years ago, sounds like you have a good deal on your hands. Mine was a gun that had been issued to a police officer and came with a 12 round mag, had some wear on the slide from the holster it was in, but I've never had any issues with it.

    cliffs: I'd do it.

    It has Houge grips on it, and 2 high cap mags, night sights that still work.

    It's a pseudo friend of mine that owns the shop, 379 would be my price. I just thought I would ask around about it.

    Not sure how old it is, I hope he still has it on monday :x:


    Has to be sorta newish right? it has the accessory rail. it's also .40 S&W

    Definitely get a 9mm barrel if you plan to shoot it a lot...Barsto makes a quality barrel. Does the grip have flathead screws or torx screws? The newer Sigs use torx screws on the grips.

    If it's there I will check on the grip.

    I already have a Sig mosquito, I shoot that plenty.

    Any opinion on the sig pro? 2022 i think is the model. seemed decent too. I just need a backup or something my wife can use too.

    I like the .40 since thats what I already have and carry. (glock 23)
