    New gun

    Boy this is really becoming an addiction. I started on this forum just a couple of months ago and have bought three pistols since. I started reading these post on the Sig P6s and wouldn't you know a local gun shop had two in stock. One of those followed me home today. I had to pay a little more than I wanted but I think its still a good deal. Came with orginal box,owner's manual(in German),the orginal test target, and two magazines for $400. It has worn edges and I would say it is in average used gun shape. Looking at the slides I could not tell of any wear. It shoots good and functions like it should. Two areas I think I will address are the DA trigger pull ( must be about 42#) and the sights are the standard issue hope to replace soon with nite sights like my 239. Anybody else have one and what have you changed? Any sources for sights and spring?

    my son bought one for his wife a couple of years ago to use as a "car gun"...I think he had to replace one spring (transfar bar spring?), but other than that, shoots great, functions fine. And yes, the stock trigger is just nuts. One thing about most of the "police issue" weapons from Europe, they were treated like Kel-Tec pistols as they were "carried a lot, and shot little". Internally, most of the PD issue Sigs and Star BM models (Spain) that I have owned or handled have shown very little internal wear...mostly holster wear.

    I think this one was a 1980 model. It has a lot of holster wear but I think it will be a good shooter.

    Thanks, they do look substantial. Size wise it is pretty much the same size as a 239 . The grips on the P6 have more of a swell whereas the grip on the 239 is thinner and straighter.

    Nice pistol. I picked up a P225 a few months ago myself. At first I thought it was a huge gun but the more I shoot it the smaller it seems to get. I used the Wolff 18lb trigger spring in mine. Made all the difference in the world.

    Yeah I may get round to changing the springs but I really want better sights first.

    more shooting

    Today I took the P6 I just got out for some range time. Very pleased with this gun. Some might fret over the finish of these guns and the heavy mainspring but man they sure do perform. I love the way they fit my hand and point. Also feels good to shoot a gun you know will go bang when you pull the trigger. ( Was shooting my P380 also today if only I could get it to be as reliable. Though it is getting better.) If any one is on the fence in regards to the P6s floating around I would recommend you get one. Great gun for the money.
