    One of the local gunstores is offering TOPD Police trade in Sig P-239's in 40 S&WS for $350.00!
    I already own a Sig, but this is too good a deal to pass up on.
    They come in the cases with 2 hi-cap mags... Score!

    That is a fine deal. I'd have to jump on that even if just to flip it for a profit.

    No fooling! New they are $850.00 locally. Spend the $180.00 for the Sig Factory check and rebuild with a new finish, and it's still a sweet deal!
    Now I'll have to get a ported Barsto barrel to match my P-225.

    They traded in for Glocks, if you can believe that madness!
    A Sig for a Glock? what manner of craziness is this??

    Okay I misquoted, the pistols are P-229, not P-239, and they have no boxes left, so it is just the weapon and two magazines. The store had only 4 on the shelves this morning, but had more "in the back" that were awaiting parts or whatever. The store is: Diamondback Police Supply 170 South Kolb rd, Tucson Arizona The phone number is (520) 886 8338.
    I bought mine today. It belonged to a K-9 officer that I knew when I worked on the Tohono O'Odham Reservation. It's gonna get refinished and I'll buy new Wolff springs and a Barsto barrel in 357 Sig, as I understand this frame can accomodate switch barrels.

    I love that finish on the photo, nice deep black , the pistols turned out to be P-229, and full size, which was fine. I am thinking about a tan and green refinsh as the slide paint is spotty with holster wear. The slide is stainless steel, though, so no worries there.
    Gotta scrounge the requisite 3 more high capacity mags, as I just hafta have (minimum) five magazines. Two sets of mag pouches and one for the pistol. I may try on a pair of the etched rosewood grips, though I like the factory stocks and a grip condom like the one shown below.

    If it's a .40 Sig 229, a Sig .357 barrel can be purchased for about $150. It should drop right in and the Sig .40 & .357 use the same springs. Go to Barsto for the 9 mm conversion barrel which is a semi-drop in (may require some fitting) and generally uses lighter springs. These run about $200. As far as mags, get the MecGar 18 round P226 mags and the X-grip spacer. Then you have a mag that holds 13 rounds in either .40 or .357 and, of course, 18 - 9mm rounds. MecGar is the manufacturer of Sig mags and work very well as described above. I also recommend the Hogue wrap around finger groove grips. Not particularly good looking like the Nils wood grips, but very very good for shooting.

    What you have said all has merit. I will do most of not all of those things, cuz I am obsessive about pistols. I hate those Hogue grips but they feel awesome!
    Mecgar mags are awesome. I always look for those when buying spares, especially for my CZ's. AVOID any PROMAG product! they are crap and off spec. Just garbage.

    Ahmen to that!!! By MecGar or factory, which sometimes are the same thing. Anything else will lead to disappointment, unless it's a 1911 but we won't get into that...

    I agree. Though on 1911 mags I almost always use Chip McCormick Power mags. The magazine is the part most likely to lead to failure to feed issues. I'd rather have spent more $$ to get the best than trust my life to a cheaper mag.
