P6/p225?

This is my first post on this forum as I have not been lucky enough to own a Sig until last week. I picked up a 220 made in 89 like nearly new in the box. I rate the condition at 99% with about 100 rounds fired until I got it. I am having such a good time with it I thought I should get another Sig. What is interesting me the most is a P6 or 225. Has anyone bought one of the P6's from Wideners? Is there a better place to get a P6 or 225? Any input on this would be appreciated.

Welcome to the forum from Pennsylvania.

The only thing I have read consistantly is the DA trigger pull on the P6's is pretty stout. I have no handling experience with either the P6 or the 225. Many positive comments about the ergos of both pistols.

The only reason the P6 trigger is so hard, comparatively speaking, is because they come with 28 lbs. standard mainsprings. The P225's come with 24 lbs. standard springs. It's a simple matter to swap it out. The P6 / P225 is a nice carry-size, single-stack pistol.

The P6 is the best SIG I have ever handled. If you find one for the price you are looking for, buy it.

One or both have feed issues with hollowpoints, though, because of a split feed ramp. Keep that in mind.

My 100% bone stock 1981 P6 fires hollowpoints just fine. So does my brother's 1982 P6.

It's all about maintenance.

A gentleman I work with owns a 225 and loves it. I have never had an opportunity to shoot one though.

That's good to know. Any tips, other than polishing the feed ramp?

Feed ramps have never been polished. Nothing but a good cleaning after use.

I did - love it

Dusty, I bought one of the P6 Sigs from Wideners several weeks ago (along with a Nagant) service from this is great - Andy is really a nice guy to deal with. My P6 was a German police "trade-in" that looked brand new - no obvious signs of use of any kind - not even holster wear. Came with two magazines, a holster and a magazine carrier.

Gun is superb to shoot - while the trigger pull in DA is long, it breaks cleanly (I have not scaled it yet but will this weekend); SA pull has short take-up and clean break. So far, even with the cheap Russian ammo - it has functioned without any flaws. Very accurate but the rear sight will require drifting slightly to the right as the gun prints about 2 inches high and 2 inches to the left at 7 yards.

I am delighted with the gun, the price and the service from Widener's and recommend them highly. No, I have no commercial connection with them, just a customer in North Carolina.

300 rounds later

Dusty, I don't know if you bought one or not but I have now run a little over 300 rounds through the P6. Assorted ammo - Tula, CCI Alum, CCI Brass and some WWB - not a single malfunction.

This evening, for the first time, I field stripped the gun and again noted no signs of previous wear - other than some hardened grease and the normal powder residue, gun was still clean.

I am becoming more accustomed to the trigger and find that I really enjoy shooting this gun. Midway has a "deal" on some surplus magazines but they are on back order. I am looking forward to them coming in so that I can spend more time shooting and less time loading magazines.

As I said earlier, I would recommend this gun to anybody seeking a medium framed 9 mm and I don't think you can find better people than Wideners.

I've had one for about 2 months, couldn't be happier, went out to buy a Taurus, went home with the P6 with 2 mags for $350.00.

Just picked up my P6 from my dealer got it off of Gunbroker for $360 with one magazine. Will get to shoot it in the morning. If everything goes OK I will order 4 more magazines from Aim. Looks like Aim has the best price going on the magazines now.
