    Great find and price I might add.
    Looks just like my trusted P226 that I carried
    on duty for more years than I care to mention.

    I still have it, and many thousands of rounds down
    range.

    I say that gun looks fine just as it is. The price is a steal and the gun's got a bit of character - you should see the "character" on my SA Mil-Spec...

    Unless it really bothers you or corrosion becomes a problem, I'd be tempted to leave it as it is and just enjoy the ol' girl. So, will this be a carry gun or a range toy?

    I agree, she looks pretty sexy as is. I would give it the Militec treatment and head for the range.

    I probably wont re-finish it anytime soon. It is free of rust ('cept for the grip screw heads...they gotta go) and I will be carrying this a lot of the time. It will never be a "range" gun for the simple fact that have never been to a "range". I'm a spoiled farm kid, lol. Target practice, plinking, and such, yes. But no formal "range" shooting.

    I expect that this will quickly beat up the little KT PF-9 that I carry now and take its lunch money!

    and lead him to a quiet place and kill him.

    That's nice and a great find! I'd keep it just the way it is, unless you find something that needs fixing.

    Nice. I got an '88 226 yesterday. Mine was a CPO, and had been renovated by the factory to some extent... and they do a very, very nice job.

    Interesting info here on the 226:
