...buy back a P228???

...hmmm...should I buy back my old P228???... ...

I bought a brand new P228 as soon as one was available after SiG announced the model back when...sold it to a coworker when I went SiG 220...it was sold to another collegue and then a co worker...when he retired he said "Bill...you have any interest in your old P228???...here's what I want for it..."

I snapped it up in a heartbeat...I installed the SiG refresh kit and sent the slide back to Trijicon to get the original SiG Lights re lamped... Then my brother talked me out of it...the locking insert has a little wear up front possibly due to others waiting too long to change out the recoil spring but that can be mitigated with the spring replacement in the kit...

Today...while my older brother was asking me about an old Colt Commander I asked if he had any interest in letting me have my P228 back...

...so...should I buy back my first year SiG Sauer P228 grooved target trigger in Electroless Nickel with SiG Lights, two 13 round magazines, box, target and manual???...I know it hasn't been shot too much since my brother got it from me after I tuned it up...

I'd really like to hear from all of you...I don't need it but he said I'd like what I gave you for it if you think it's fair (it is)...If I do...it will be a couple weeks until I can get my hands on it...

Bill

or that Colt 1911
or that Italian Beretta M model
or that Sig P239
or that S&W 66 snub
or that........................

YES, buy it back!

well my recall failed me so far as I thought it was a first year P228 and it may be a 1990 or 1991...no deal changer for me as I want it to shoot and not to collect...

Thanks...I was pretty sure that this crowd would tell me to buy it...

I have owned 9 guns. one was stolen, my AR-7 was stolen, my ex pawned my Taurus PT-92, I sold the SW40VE. the sigs the Mosin I will never sell willingly. the Remington 1911 is gone as soon as the sig replacement is purchased

I don't regret the S&W but i miss the hell out of that Taurus
