Recent purchase from Aimsurplus, Sig P226 40s&w LE trade-in. Thought I grabbed last one as it showed "sold out" soon after. I see they have more..no regrets.

They typically get a steady supply in. Also check out CDNN as they get trade in guns, too.

How do you like your trade-in purchase?

Love it! It was meticulously clean. Nicks all over, grips worn down, but night sights have life. Rifling looks ok.
Here's a 7yrd 10rd string @ 7yrds

I think your pictures need to be bigger, I can't quite tell if there are any corona viruses on the gun or target....

for all the hate on 40sw, the 226 is a fantastic choice for a 40 cal gun.

Congrats.

Those aren’t “nicks and scratches” that is the much sought after “battle worn” patina.Smile
You did good.

Also, from whence are you posting the pics?
Phone tablet, etc?
I use “image size” on my iPhone and iPad to resize pics.

Thank you. I feel lucky to have scored it. I fondled a tac-ops desert tan/camo one at gun shop and felt great. Once I got used to bore axis I was grinning.

I couldn't agree more. I have one and love it.
Congratulations on a nice pistol.

you can get a rehab kit with new grips and springs for less than $50 and a threaded 9mm barrel for less than $150. For less than $200 you have a refurbished 9mm suppressor host in 9mm.

Thanks for the suggestions. I like it in its natural condition though.

I picked up 3 surplus 226 frames a couple of years ago. I assembled a 22lr


a 40sw, and a 357sig p226. You made a good choice. Pick up a rehab kit and enjoy.

Congratulations. You scored a great pistol!

Under the chart of their liberties, under the law of high heaven, they are free and without shackles on their limbs nor mortgages upon the fruits of their brain or muscles; they bow down before no prince, potentate, or sovereign, nor kiss the royal robes of any crowned head; they render homage only to their God and should pay tribute only to their Government.
