German p220 price check

99%. Rails look unused. Only the slightest wear on slide at the usual point. 4 mags. Sorry, did not look at code or proofs. Box was great plastic like my 97 P6. Slide finish looks like nitride not like the bluing of my p6. Trigger is mighty stiff in DA, very nice SA. Could not have been shot much. Top of hood is white. Grips are pretty smooth. I like the old WG diamond ones much better. Feels fat fir a 220. Value?

Do these like the P6 just need a lighter hammer spring to make the DA nice? I could kick myself for not getting a 228 in LN condition some years back for 550. Thought the DA was too stiff.

A little update. 2 7 RD mags and 2 SIG 8 rounders. Box and papers. Finish as stated is great, and NO wear on rails. Round hammer. No proofs. I guess its a German made, US assembled gun. $575.

Lots of P220s on the www, though...

Doesn't sound too bad in that condition with the extra 8 rd. mags, gray case and papers.

Did you get the serial number?

No. Just talked to the store owner, and I'm certain without proofs, and not WG, it's nothing special, trigger was pretty stiff so not shot much.

Just for giggles: what if the slide was factory nickel/chrome - how would that affect value. It's not but just wondered.

The serial would just help put a date on it.

A nickel or chrome slide wouldn't add any value to me, unless it WAS something special.

How would the date matter? Its not German proofed, and the round hammer seems to indicate the beefed up frame and 'safe' hammer system which is desirable but not early. I assume from the box it is mid to tale 90s - I would definitely stop by and see, but it is NOT that close.

While I know the value goes up on a earlier P220 in great condition, I'd rather have a +P capable .45.


Thanks!

I might be collecting one copy for each year of production or something like that.

I only asked out of curiosity if you had the S/N, not for you to go find out. This is your baby to get if you want it. I gave you my opinion on the price, which I think is decent.

1998.

Pretty pristine. I have found two tiny dings in the TG I could NOT find in the shop. Upon re-examination, it was too nice a shape to pass up. Nothing I saw online looked this nice - nothing.

The slide finish is VERY nice - looks more durable than the older ones.

I doubt this was EVER fired DA. The trigger is smooth but about 98 LB. Grips are the newer fat plastic - I like the old WG better. The magwell looks unused, and the mags not much.

I MIGHT switch out the mainspring housing and consider grips. (Or i might just stipple - it is already a stipple pattern but smooth - doh). Wish someone made a modern copy of the German grips but a tad slimmer.

I also know why they moved away from the serrated trigger.

Nice! It looks to me like you got a great deal for the price, especially after seeing it. Looks just like my '99, but mine has some finish wear on the slide.

Those are the period grips for that model. They have a date clock on the back side which should be '97 or '98. The year straddles an arrow that points to the month.

If you're interested in unloading the grips, PM me and maybe we can work something out. I have a set of the newer slim grips too.
