I might give $1500 for BOTH if I really wanted a nickel 226.

lol! nice! so i guess its gonna b higher if its new? he said its new and disassembled the gun infront of me, looks legit i mean no scratches like with my used glock’s slide that i shoot with.
that being said, how much do u think they will sell at a gunshop store? the p226 n p229 pictured. is there any site that i can find a collector that looks for this type of guns? thanks again and God Bless!

IMO, the P226 being a legit Nickel could push the price north of $1K and get close to $1500. But only because it's Nickel (factory finish / marked Nickel box being important, although it appears legit to my eye).

But the P229, even though it appears unfired (?) wouldn't be close. It's simply not a collector type pistol and I'd put price in the $800-ish range if he can find someone really lusting for an early P229 in pristine condition.

He would be able to get that much for them here in CA. Maybe a little more for the P226.

P229 - Plane Jane pistol in great shape probably made around 1995, pricing would depend on how bad someone wants an as new P229, nice weapon. Perhaps anywhere form $650 - $800ish.

P226 - Factory Nickel 1995, as new could get up there $$ wise pretty fast on gunbroker.com, easily North of $1k. Nice weapon.

The early P229 in .40 is not fetching much more than $700, even NIB/LNIB.
Now, if it's a 9mm P229 made in 1994 (AD prefix), with the triple serial numbers, it can fetch $900 NIB with collectors.

Was able to bargain and got the 2 for $2k, thanks to you guys! i really like the finish on the p226 and the triggers on both are a lot smoother than my glock i think. so i can keep both of them if i dont get a higher offer from my local gun stores. upgrade self def on p229. and will try to hold on to the p226 and keeping it new until price go up i guess. Thanks again guys for your help and God Bless us and America! ‘Murica all day errday!!!!

You did just about right for both. Not a bargain. But, did you buy them expecting to flip for a profit with a high offer from your local gun shop? Not happening.

was hoping on the p226 atleast.. and i can keep the p229 for defense.. dont they go up in price as it becomes older? i read more bout the gun with the proof markings. was made in kiel proofed in 1995 nickel, with the original purchase box and the target shooting paper. i hope some of the stuff matters to increase the price

Well the good news is you've bought what I consider high end hand guns.... I'm no expert on specific ones but do feel Sigs are top of the line...

To say more than I should... I've spent years buying $300 guns and have of late come to the realization that life is too short to own cheap guns... every thing is relative but now $800 -$1000 is what I like to invest in a handgun.

My only point is regardless of what those two pistols are worth today or in the future, you bought quality.

I really like the nickle 226, I have a Red-Box CPO SIG 226, in excellent condition, that I paid $659 for. That's the value to look for, mine is USA built.
