Sig 228 prices all over the place (Update with pics) Login/Join

I have been looking for one for quite a while and finally found a NIB 228 locally for $925. That seems awfully high. The only reference I have is GB and everything on there is wayyyyyy overpriced. So, decent price or pass at $925?

Watch Sigforum Classifieds. 12131 drops one of his occasionally, as do others.

I bought two from Q at $700 (a 1994 gun) and $760 (SAS w/night sights) last year. His were pristine and came with everything, but I guess not NIB technically. So IMO you are paying more now.

The designer of the gun had clearly not been instructed to beat about the bush. 'Make it evil,' he'd been told. 'Make it totally clear that this gun has a right end and a wrong end. Make it totally clear to anyone standing at the wrong end that things are going badly for them.'

Sounds as if you came across 2Malamutes's P228 that sold recently on Gunbroker.

I saw a couple on Gunbroker today for about $850, well the M11A1 pistols anyway.

So I haven’t really looked since but around time mine sold all in similar condition were going between 12 and $1300. Guess it was just the going rate then... at least there. No complaints as a seller Cool

Recently paid $950 for a damned close to NIB with Legend parts, including sights. Paid a bit more for extra mags and a horsehide holster and he threw in 3 sets of springs.

Got it back from Mr. Burke today and it's action is better than my M29 that Mr. Hamilton did for me years ago.....dreamy

I was a bit surprised by the price but considering "they ain't making no more" and the P228A1 is not the same.....grab 'em while you can

Not a good comparison. M11-A1 is a P229-1 dressed up as a M11/P228. Real P228s have long been out of production.

I agree but the originals are getting pricey and trying to find parts for the originals will be harder as days go by.

I did not purchase that one. $950 was out of line for me and I was looking for a shooter. Notice I said was. Today a very clean West German 228 came up for sale on the same local boards. $750 with factory box and 12 factory mags. I spoke with the seller and will be picking it tomorrow. Sometimes patience pays off. Big Grin

If most of those mags are vintage dovetail &/or zipperback mags w/ German Triskelion stamp, then you'll be making out like a bandit.

I picked up the 228 today. It is a clean KE dated gun. 9 of the 12 mags were new in the bag. One zipper back, and 11 dovetail mags. I paid $750 for everything. That was a hell of a deal, and it came with the factory box.

It looks as if the roll pin in the slide is starting to walk out of the right side a bit.

Congrats on your pick up! You got a P228 that's much better than 'shooter grade'. Cool

10 extra mags alone are worth at least $500, well beyond good deal.
