    Sig P6(225) vs Beretta 96D (Not actual guns but similar condition)

    [​IMG]


    German police issue trade in Sig Sauer P6 9mm with a good bit of holster wear etc (I have about 5 locally to choose from, and different grades at diff prices on diff. surplus sites) $399 locally, $270 for similar grade online, or $369 for a good condition one online



    VS

    Beretta 96D in 40 S.W, moderate wear but mechanically sound, great trigger. $299 locally


    So do I spend more on the Sig thats in worse shape and is 8+1 9mm which I like a lot more (Wish I could get a new 220 :hs: ) or go for the reliable, cheaper, local beretta which is 40SW and a pretty damn good deal?

    Edit: I also dont like the trigger on the P6 I shot, the DAO on the beretta was awesome

    What are you going to be using it for? Range? CCW?

    Also you have the same av as Lightsped which confused me :o

    Personally I'd probably go with the Sig. I like the 92/96 series OK, but I was never incredibly impressed. 9mm is also cheaper to shoot which is a plus.

    That said, the 96 for $300 bucks is a pretty good deal. $400 for that Sig is too much. AIM has them for $260 and they are suppose to be in good condition.
