Hi all
I was at the gunshow the other day and found a Sig 228 for $575.00 It was more then I had to play with at the time and it didn't look like the gun was jumpping off they guys talble so it should be there next time around. I thought I read that the 228s were no longer in production? True or not? Either way for a decent looking gun with one mag, was $575 fair or way to high? I would have to try and barter him down a bit on it just on it.

$475-$500 is good price IMHO

I wouldn't pay that. I think $500 is more reasonable. Also, Sig is starting to put out a P228 with a rail that they're calling the M11A1. I paid about $500 for mine with six magazines.

I wouldn't pay $575 unless it was an as new all German P228. Hard to beat the older German SIG's. Dealer near here had an entire showcase full of P226 trade ins for $450, some looked excellent. That's about what I'd put into a P228 as well, unless as I said, it is "as new".
I just got a P229.....only newer, non all German SIG I own. Don't care for the rails & crap personally. Not gonna be hanging crap all over it. Just one of those things I just had to have. :biggrin:

For $575.00 I'll sell you a nice clean German one with manual, 2 mags and a like new Galco holster. :)
