Older 228 Question

I found an older 228 but it has the word Kontonsplizei Zurich in white letters on the slide. It looks to be in very nice condition from the pictures I have seen. They want 500.00 with the box.

So what is the question? This is a Zurich Police Department gun, hence the name on the side.

If it looks good and is in good condition, I'd say the price is right!

if it's decent, that's a good price.

I was curious what the word Kontonsplizei Zurich translated to in american. Also the 500.00 asking price. I think you answered my question. Thanks !

There are dozens of Swiss Police 228s on GunsAmerica ranging from $469-$569 in price. It's value is going to be highly dependant on its condition. Yours is about in the middle of the road of that range, so I'd say it's probably a decent price so long as it's not totally worn out.

That is what I thought . The only plus on this one is that I can actually put it in my hand before I buy it.

When considering a police trade, especially one of the guns coming out of Europe, this is critical. The police trade guns can range from ruined to unused. Being able to actually see the gun, and inspect the internals before buying, puts you way ahead of the game.
