I've been looking for Sig p228 for a while. After bidding on 3 different guns on Gunbroker...and losing them all, I tried calling gun shops on Sig's list of dealers (here in Jersey, and 'nearby' dealers in NY, CT and PA.) I was hoping to find a CPO model.
I didn't, but did find this pristine 1992 West German p228. The PA dealer said he thought it was new. A guy was trying to sell it on consignment, and got desperate. It certainly appears to be new. Looks like the only rounds through it were the 4 shot by manufacturer. Original box, mags, target, and instruction manual. (All the serial numbers match too.)
The price seemed reasonable...550$ plus shipping.
I haven't shot it yet. My wife thinks I shouldn't. Keep it as is, as an investment. Any thoughts? Thanks.
