Yesterday I picked up amost new 225-A1 for $495. One magazine was never used and after careful cleaning, the pistol looks new. The only thing missing in the factory box is the warranty card. One feature I really don’t like is that the magazine release button is too sensitive. Just a light touch and the magazine is ejected. Without a warranty this would be expensive to correct. Seems like best strategy to to wait for tax refund season and sell it on consigment.

Dude, I get it that everyone doesn't like to tinker but give me a break. Expensive fix? Did you do even the slightest research before you started bitching? Put it in the classifieds telling everyone about the mag for the 495 you paid for it and it will be gone by days end.
You got a great deal but you aren't happy. Sell it. You won't have an issue recouping your money.
I’ve never registered a single warranty card and have sent multiple guns back to manufacturers including Sig when I wasn’t the original purchaser. Don’t ask don’t tell. Never had an issue getting things fixed. For the most parts manufacturers want thier products to work properly. I agree with others, it’s an easy fix, changing out the whole mag release assembly would take you less than 5 minutes.

Personally, I like the standard p225 with the large trigger guard. As for repairs, I will do simple things, but I will have an expert do it, and understand that I am paying for his expertise. This is not a slingshot, it is a handgun, and if I would need it for self defense in a life or death situation, I would not want rely on my marginal gunsmithing skills, yet concentrate on my shooting skills.
