    Thumbs up Opinion of Sig 225

    I have found a used Sig 225 in extremely great shape. I. it is priced at about $475.00. I realize it is only a 9MM. I usually carry a .45. Any opinions on the weapon and price is greatly appreciated.

    They have a great reputation, but the Sig 239 seems to have gained more ground that the Sig 225 and AFAIK the 225 is not in production anymore.

    I like my P6 (W. German police-issued P225) than any P239 I've fired; partially because the slides on the P239's I've fired never stayed lock back upon firing the last round.

    I had a short trigger installed on my by certified SIGARMS armorer....now the gun fits my hands even better.

    To get new mags for the best price I've seen and super quick (within two or three days of putting in your order!), go to Top Gun Supply (a member here): http://www.topgunsupply.com/P225-c-226.html

    I love it. Ive got a 239 and the grip is a bit short.Not a problem with the 225.

    I sometimes use it for a backup gun to my Sig220 that I carry on duty when I'm playing Deputy.

    Thats a good price. Id say go for it.

    I'd say at that price, go for it. Think I would.

    I have too have a P6 and must say I absolutely love it. It's my primary carry replacing my Kimber Tac Pro II .45, another fine weapon. I appreciate the size of the P6 being slim line like a 1911 and the weight and the feel of the thin grip. I'm not concerned with the the 9mm caliber or the 9rds. I carry a mixture of Remington +P 9mm and Black Talons. The inherent accuracy (being a Sig) of this weapon brings a smile to my face everytime and when I carry it I feel like I have an advantage. I know the only true advantage is being able to fire it alot and get to know the weapon. Being a 9mm I can afford to practice with it very often as opposed to my .45 so that's another bonus with todays gas prices.

    I'm sure you will be pleased with it. I was tempted to slug it out on Ebay for the Pachmayer grips that sometimes become available, but I've read that it detracts from the slimness you would otherwise have without them. I am a CHL instructor for Texas and I have encouraged some of my students to try it...many have and they too prefer it over the P239. Try aimsurplus.com or dansammo.com or cdnninvestments.com to find another one for a friend.

    I had the same problem, turns out the smaller frame placed my thumb on the slide lock, a slight change in my grip solved the probelm.

    HOLY CRAP those are the best prices I have seen on SIG mags besides Ebay. Thanks!

    I thought that was the reason as well, but it wasn't; I've tried different hand/thumb positions...no go; plus, my hands are small. Several co-workers issued with P239's reported the same "problem." Happened mostly in the 9mm guns; I only had it happen I think once in a .40 P239.

    Smile Sig 225 still in production

    My research shows that the 225 is still in production, but (and there is always a butt isn't there) it is no longer imported in the US of A. It still is available in Europe. The 239 has more or less taken its place so to speak in the USA.

    Its a great gun, but you wont have a huge selection of holsters etc. for it. Spare parts might be challenging down the road.
