    Found Sig 228 for sale

    He says its a factory Electroless nickel finish. Two 13 rd mags nickel. No box. 90% condition. Date code KB which is 1991. Nite sights say 1991 also but dim. Slide says Made in West Germany with German proff markings. Imported Exeter, NH. Reduced price to $700 shipped. What do you guys think. I saw a picture & it looks good.
    I prefer a black gun but I quess nickel is alright.

    If you want a black one, get a black one. New ones can be had for a little more than 7.

    They don't make the 228 anymore, you'd have to get a 9mm 229 which looks nearly identical, though I do believe it is slightly heavier.

    Any reason to get an older model? Better made?

    We have a new production 228 in the shop right now, they are making them. It's got the rail on it--- no go for me, I'll stay with the 2 228's non railed I have already.

    Some of the Sig "purists" prefer the older West German pistols. I can't tell any real difference between my "KA"s and my "KF"s. Some of the newer P228s hitting the market are railed models. I believe all of the new ones have the shorter main spring and strut.

    I've owned a Sig 226 in the past.. How does the 228 grip compare? I found the 226 was too big for my small hand. I know I could get thinner grip plates for the 228 & a shorter trigger.

    The p228 is a more compact version than the 226. Its just like a p229 in dimension.

    Factory nickel and W. German? Heck, you could make some money turning that gun around, I would think...

    But for the sake of those who like to collect such things, please don't buy it and refinish it. I am sure you can find a black P228 out there.

    Sorry, but I believe $700 for a used 228 is pretty steep. You can buy NIB 229s at a local store for $714 OTD.
