    Yep, pirate, sounds like the original P6 barrel. They are getting cleaned up for resale, but I don't know by whom. It may just be that SIG only makes the P225 barrels now, so if they get replaced at all it is with the newer barrel.

    I have seen this explanation a couple of places (a few threads on SIGforum and THR, IIRC), and some people have definitely gotten the P225 barrel in their P6s. I haven't looked that closely at mine yet because it is just a range gun.

    My buddy just picked up one of those. They are pretty sweet and I may have to get one for myself. They are going for $350 at a local shop here. :)

    I did a price check on 225 barrels and Midway has them for $199......whooo, not me, I only paid $299 for the P6 and its just a project gun for me and since I own around 8 handguns disignated and "field tested" for CCW, I will just find some ball ammo or some HP that will feed and stick with that. I am a decent "home gunsmith" (but who knows his limitations) so I may do some work on the feed ramp and see how it goes.

    I heard a lot of reports that slicking up the feed ramp goes a long ways in the feeding dept... but that second and third hand info, I haven't done it myself.

    Unfortunately, that could result in more harm than good. Consult with a SIG gunsmith prior to any polishing or dremeling the feedramp.

    Prior to June 14, 1989, the feedramp was manufactured at a 52 degree angle. After that date, the angle was increased to 54 degrees which improved the feeding of the JHP.

    It does. If you lightly break the lower edge of the chamber-ramp interface using a fine Cratex rubber abrasive rod, your worries will disappear.

    Well... I am one. I just never have done this particular project myself, and want those who want to take on the job themselves to proceed with caution.

    I saw these first advertised in Shotgun News. My questions have been answered now. I just don't know about a single stack 9mm, but for the price-one can't go wrong. Congratulations on your new piece. Have fun, be safe.

    Actually they started changed the design of the P6 barrels during their course of production...so some of the older P6s with matching numbers may have a 147gr hollowpoint feeding "issue" while some of the later models P6s with matching numbers have the new updated (P225 style) feedramp and will have no such issue. There are side by side pictures somewhere out there so that you can identify which barrel/feedramp you have. I'll try to find it. edit here you go:

    I had a P6 with the feed problems. The barrel on mine was loose, and when the barrel moved the rounded end on the ramp would catch the HP ammo. Ball ammo fed just fine. The real problem is that with the barrel so loose, it was very inaccurate. Sometimes it wouldn't even hit the paper. Luckily the gun shop had a good return policy.

    Keep in mind, this was an extreme problem and most P6's don't have problems that bad. Yes, quite a few of them have feed issues with HP. But they're still accurate. They're a nice little gun if you get a good one.
