    Need speedy advice

    At the local gun shop last night I saw a Sig P220 in great shape (newer model) for $550. LESS than a month ago I purchased a Sig p239 9mm for $525 from him, its still in great shape, two mags, box, manual. I just called and asked the store hand if he would trade the one i bought less than a month ago for the one he had here plus $50 or less, he said call back in 10 minutes when the boss was in.
    So...question is.
    p239 v.s. p220? Should I? Worth it?

    In the last month this owner also accepted my buddies taurus as a trade for $350 and let him walk out with a Ruger sp101 for all of $75. (goes down in my book for most excellent deal on a pistol in my history of buying and selling firearms)

    They are two different animals. If you want to step up to .45 then I think it sounds like a good deal.

    ^^^^^What he said^^^^^

    What model 220 is it??
    The 220 (carry) is bigger in every dimension, they are equal in weight, but I'd rather have 8rounds of .45 over 8 rounds of 9mm

    The price sounds good to me. I carry and practice with 9mm handguns (including a 239), but I also own a 1911 and an older Sig 220. Lots of people carry 1911s and Sig 220s, just a matter of personal choice. I don't thing there's a wrong decision to be made. Sig 239 - great gun. Sig 220, same thing. How's that for advice?

    Well I have owned .45's before and dont have a problem stepping up (other than more expensive practice shooting). The 220 looks to be a larger frame, certainly bigger than the 239 I have. I was suppossed to receive a phone call about it a little over and hour ago so...maybe I just need to try back at lunch. thanks for all advice given! Please give more feedback as my eyes will be in the forum all day.

    okay so I just went to the gunshop again to eye out the 220.
    Im guessing its a 220 standard("4.5 bbl). Made in Germany, 8 round mags (x2), box. He is trading me for my 239 + $50.
    I had him put it in his safe for me but here are some things that caught my attention:
    It has a weird braided wire guide rod spring. Is that normal? Also, the slide isnt flush with the frame, it looks like towards the rear of the gun near the hammer, there is some of the slide rail exposed. Is this normal?
    Also It was a Police issue gun in Louisiana and has Trijicon night sites. Does it up the value at all being made in Germany?

    The braided recoil spring is normal, as is a small bit of slide rail exposed at the rear. At least, is is on my 226.

    Blame it on Sixto - now that is a viable plan.

    Braided wire recoil spring is normal. It's normal for there to be a little of the rear side of the rail showing. As long as the slide meets up with the front of the frame correctly.

    I don't know if it being German made makes it worth more but some people feel those are better than the current US made models.

    Just curious, does the box look like this?

    [

    And did it have a test target as well as the manual. No big deal, just curious.

    No it was a hefty blue box with two sliding grey locking bars. The blue box says Sig Sauer on it and I didnt see if it had the test fire target in it or not. had original blue mag well lock.
