I found a P228

My latest prescription for my Signess was filled today when I found a P228 that was within my budget,top end of my budget,but still in range.It had come up on a (local) gun forum ,Michigan Gun Owners and I knew hesitating would be disappointing so early this morning I headed an hour west instead of sleeping in.
The best part is it happens to be a KA P228 Nickel finish!!! Sadly no box,test target,or postcard from the lucky(to be a ) German marksman from 25meters

The gun had been shot previously,possibly carried a bit as well .Since it wasn't a glorious NIB gun I had no problems loading up the 3 nickel zipperbacked 13 round magazines and head out to the range.Both a friend and I remarked at how smooth the trigger was.I'm not sure if this was a P228 thing,a nickel thing, or somebody somewhere tuned up this 27 year old beauty.

I think I did quite well on price,and was pleased with my range time as well.
I gotta shoot my P226 SSE at IDPA practice this week just to compare as it hasn't been out of the safe since last fall.

I dont know what it is, but my WG 228 is by far my favorite Sig. I need to find one for the safe.
