    New ("used") Sig P225-A1

    Just got this today from a sale on Gunbroker. LNIB Sig P225-A1 that I snagged for $599.00. Night sights, short reset trigger. Not a scratch on it, or the magazines.

    That's a great deal for a good Sig to carry around.

    Very nice! What plans do you have for it?

    I started having a desire to pick one of these up after watching Kurt Wallander (as played by Kenneth Branagh) carry one on the Swedish detective series. To date I haven't had a chance to shoot or handle one, but thought that since the Sig P229 has been the sidearm that I have carried the most over the years the P225 would work fine.

    Not really sure what it's main role will be. Like you, I carry a 229, and have for the past year. Prior to that, I was nothing but Glock and did not think I could shoot a DA/SA. I started with the M11-A1 (which I now consider my "practice" pistol) but daily carry is a Legion.

    I saw a video about this pistol and the design appealed to me for a slightly smaller and lighter DA/SA single stack. I think Sig will probably kill this pistol in the next year or two as the demand for DA/SA pistols seems to be shrinking. The guy I bought this from had just bought it at a prior auction, and says he never fired it. I looked up the prior auction and he was the only bidder on Gunbroker for that pistol

    I agree that the pistol will likely be phased out. In fact, I thought that it had been already and had been brought back again.

    After having it seem like a body appendage for many years, I seldom carry my P229 now and primarily carry single stack pistols or short barrel revolvers. I find it somewhat humorous that when the P229 first came out I found it amazingly easy to carry compared to full size handguns. Now, it seems so large and bulky, particularly through the grip, with it's double stack.

    Nice.

    How does it compare with the now-defunct P239?

    Good buy on a great gun. I hope Sig keeps an all metal, DA/SA, hammer fired gun in their lineup. Not everyone wants striker fired, polymer arms.
    They already gave up the p239 which this is pretty close to.

    I am unable to say. Never had the opportunity to shoot one of those. All of the reviews I have read on this pistol have been very good. It's similar enough to my two P229s that I am sure it will be nice.

    I have both, and the 225-A1 does feel better in my hand; better balanced and more grip purchase. But Sig dropped the ball by using a modified 239 magazine instead of designing a proper magazine that held another round or 2. The 225-A1 would be even better if it came in 357 Sig or 40 cal.

    Amen to that. There is clearly enough unused space in the magazine for them to have done this.
