1994-5 Sig 229

Are these that hard to find. I found one local to me and it is in like new condition. It has the original box,etc. I was trying to find out what they are selling for. I like the older ones with no rail so this one really interests me.
Is there much of a difference between the 228 and the 229. I know the slide is milled from stainless on the 229 and do not remember about the 228 slide.

No they are fairly common. I have a NIB unfired one myself from that year range. Terrific pistols.

The P228 has a carbon steel folded slide that is about an ounce or so lighter.

So not that much lighter. The owner had it listed for 750. He said 675 is the lowest he would take. Not a scratch on it I guess. I also found a 225 in near mint with 2 mags in the case for 525. Two guns that I really want but do not see many listed for sale to compare to.

I don't believe it is worth $675 unless it is NIB like mine which IMO is worth more than $675.

From what you describe I would say closer to $625 is the worth unless it is 9MM which is harder to find and in that case it may be a decent buy at $675. Most of the used ones in that vintage are .40.

The P225 (NOT P6) near mint for $525 is a great deal IMO, much harder to find, and I would personally snap that up.

40 or 357?

last feb i sold a nib/unfired 229/357, original cardboard box for $650.

if barrel & frame rails don't show much wear, manual, $550.

pic is what i mean by not much barrel wear on 1 of my '94 adxxx 229/357's.

It is 9mm. Thanks for the input. I am up in the air right now about getting it for 675. I am waiting on the 225 owner to get back to me also. Also deciding on the 228 for 500. The better deal sounds like the 225 and the 228.

Here is an example of a nice early P229 9MM with serial number on frame and barrel that recently sold on Gun Broker for $600.

Might help you bargain down a bit if you really want it though again pristine condition could make it more valuable.

I have a two tone 229-40 from roughly 1995. I got 3 wildly different manufacture dates from 3 people at Sig. Once in awhile for something to do, and for giggles, I call up and ask.
I learned here to get a Bar-sto converson barrel. Now my 229 is a 40 and a very accurate 9mm. With a 9mm recoil spring and my 40 magazines it runs 9 really great.
