Hello, I'm new to the forum. Thank you for any advice or feedback and Merry Christmas.
So, I saw a pic of a P226 and I would like to do something similar in a single stack, a good P225 if I can find one or maybe a P239. Here's a link to the pic...
Firearms, Guns, Rifles. Grain Valley, Missouri.
Any recommendations how to get a good P225 worth putting money into, or should I just go with a P239 or maybe even a P226? I'm not knowledgable about conditions of barrels, etc, so want to get one in good condition.
What's the best way to get the slide, trigger, hammer, and other parts the goldish color and the frame the bronze-type color?
Any recommendations on grips similar to these that would go well?
Thanks you for your time.

I am not sure what you mean by bronze and goldish colors but you can customize your 225 when you get one with a duracoat kit.
Grips are scarce for 225's. Ebay has pachmeyrs(sp) for 225's. Topgunsupply has the factory grips, parts and mags. Good luck with your search.

It is all personal appeal. I have held a 225 and a 239 side by side. For me no question the 239.
I never got Sig's affection for contrasting controls. other than the trigger, I like them to blend in.
The 239 SAS two tone is a good looker. You could go the nickle plated controls.
Can't remember where, but I have seen blackwater grips for 239.
Lood luck with it, however you end up.

Agree DWG, I own both the 225(non p6) and a 239 SAS gen2 both in 9mm. I am fond of the 225 more due to its closeness of weight to the 228.
Sorry for the bad link on duracoat

I have a Sig P6 which is a Police trade-in P225. My LGS had some and I picked the one that I thought was in the best condition. I replaced the blacked out sights with Meprolight night sights and new factory grips. Also, I bought additional new factory mags from E-bay. My P6 shoots great AND I got a free holster with the deal.

I've read a lot of people say they like the P225 feel. I do know the P239 is newer so has some improvements.
I like the P225 for the history, the gun has been around a long time- we've been through a lot. However, as I want to add really nice wood grips and maybe send it for a coating to get a nice refinished tan-gold color on the slide, hammer, trigger, then I would want a 98% P225- so that being said I will be paying a premium.
It may make more sense to go with a gun closer to what I'm already looking for. I found a very nice, nearly new, P226 that has great wood grips like what I'm looking for.
For what I would have to pay for a great P225 and nice wood grips, this P226 is only $100 more and is like new, more of the modern improvements, and will probably have better resale value.
Going with the P226 seems the way to go, but hate the thought of not having a P225... not sure...

I also have a P6 and whereas mine is WELL worn (I like it like that) I have thought about some of the new Hogue grips in either G10 or aluminum.
The link below has grips for the P225 but only the aluminum and G10 grips are pictured.

I go tomorrow to look at a 2001 P225 that has been used but I don't believe was a police trade in.
Pics show gun to be in good shape, used but no extreme wear. Seller lists as 95+%. Hopefully get for between $525 to $540.
Anything I should be aware of or should stay away from when I look at this gun?
