Value Indication of Used Sig P226 in .40 S&W

I just did a little research of recent sales on GunBroker of used Sig P226 pistols in .40 S&W. These all appeared to be law enforcement Trade-ins.
All these sales were from seller with a very high feedback rating.

There are 13 sales on the below list. All of these were listed as in good mechanical condition and in various levels of appearance from Good, then Good+ (plus), and the top tier was Very Good. They all came with two factory magazines and some had boxes and manuals.

The overnight shipping charge was $35.00 or if you were a State resident you could pick it up free. All State residents had to pay sales tax.

It was rather interesting to see how auctions go bid price wise since some in lesser condition sold for more than some in better condition.

The market for .40 has been very soft.

I just rec'd. my new (to me) P226 Elite through Gunbroker. German Frame, Exeter upper and internals. Gun was almost new, but had no box, spare mag., or papers. Paid $599 shipped. IMHO, a better deal than a rework, which generally have dinged up frames and high round count. YMMV.

[QUOTE=bearone2;1702826]l e trade-ins aren't reworked, just passed on.


Yep, the police trade-ins are simply passed on, and examination of the wear markings on the barrel's exterior finish near the muzzle and on the feed ramp, the frame's rails, and the breech-face of the slide can give one an idea of the round count. It's my understanding that the CPO redbox pistolas have the slides redone and internals replaced as needed, as well as a 1-year warranty. The frames are not re-anodized, so any nicks, scratches, dings and dents are "character".

My New to Me (NTM) .40 P226 Elite's frame has no dings or scratches, barrel has almost no wear markings from cycling, the feed ramp finish looks like new, as does the breech face. Somebody's house gun-or a divorce gun.

I bet most of those soft price cheap ones are DAO or DAK, they typically go for at least a hundred lower than DA/SA guns.

You'll also spend a pile of money to change them to the traditional SA/DA, so you won't save any money. That DAK trigger is terrible.

Most non-LEO shooters prefer the P226 in its original caliber - 9mm.

Now the P229 is expected to be in 40SW.

I've bought a couple of police trade ins of GB but all were DA/SA with several pictures from the seller.

Bought a P220, P226 and P229 as police trade-ins.

If they are using the NRA grading, you want Very Fine or Excellent IIRC. Several of my GB-purchased 3rd gen Smith and Wessons and Sig were in at least VF.

Top Gun supply has a P229 with legacy slide, brand new with night sights E2 grips for 699. They are for sure dropping in price, the 40sw pistols.

In the batch I was analyzing, all the pistols were DA/SA. Very Good was the top quality handguns. I looked at a lot of these pistol, and there was not a bad one in the bunch if you just wanted a good shooter. The very good and good plus were actually in great condition. Some came with boxes and all came with at least two higher capacity magazines.

I like to get a good deal, but in the long run it hardly matters, You might be better paying a couple hundred to get what you want. All the above had Sig night sights but some were dimming. That is at least sixty bucks right there if not more.

I believe Top Gun has had those Legacy .40 P229s around for a few years already (NOS in the ad) at that same original price. I think in the case of this gun it is more that they did not sell rather than current dropping prices.

Also, in my opinion, those low prices on Gunbroker are because the guns are LE trade-ins rather than the fact they are .40 caliber (although that is also a factor). I think a CPO .40 P226 would be at least $100 more, but that is just me. Whether the CPOs would actually sell is another matter because of demand, or lack there of.

lamarw,

I just did an advanced search on gunbroker looking at completed sales too (limited to 90 days and sorted by number of bids on completed sales). I did not locate the number of DA/SA $300 to $400 guns your search turned up. The majority in that range were DAK DAO. The DA/SA feature is easy to spot and confirm, as the hammer has a normal spur, while the DAK DAO guns have a rounded off hammer.

Here's a DAK example at $317

http://www.gunbroker.com/item/589302227

There were some nice looking DA/SA 40 sold in the 4 to 500 range, which is about what I'd expect and has been so since the market has been saturated with LEO turn-ins. I see nothing in the pricing to suggest average price decrease over the past two years, at least in the DA/SA guns.

CDNN is a good place to watch for police trade ins, also. Right now, all they have are three DAK's, but they move quite a few through at reasonable pricing. I picked up a P226 in 357 SIG a while back at a great price. It was like new even though the listing said good condition.
