I have asked many questions about Sigs and you guys have been a great help. I am a confirmed Glock guy and have been for many years. All of your statements about the Sigs got me thinking I needed one. The search was for a 229 Dark Elite in 357, but they are not a stocked item and you dont see them at gun shows in this area. Today I found a 226 in .40 for $540. The gun looks new with no wear that I could see. Thanks to all who answered my questions, and this should hold me over until I find my dream gun. Going to the range in the morning to see how it shoots.
