Default New SIG-Sauer arriving tomorrow

My Mom stopped by last Wednesday and put a $1000 check in my hands courtesy of my deceased step-father who passed about 6 weeks ago or so.

I sure didn't see that coming.

Anyway, I love free money, especially when I can spend it guilt free on a new handgun, so straight to Gunbroker I went.

I've been wanting another SIG-Sauer P225 for a couple o' three years now to replace one that i sold many years ago and stumbled across a limited edition that was the last 400 P225's produced in Germany to mark the end of production of this fine handgun.

The Germans have already switched to several different Walther, HK, and SIG-Sauer handguns and SIG-Sauer decided this wasn't needed any longer.

This example is number 42 of 400 and has the roll mark, "German Police Pistol" on the left side slide slab. Now if you didn't already know, the P225 was not the 'Polizei Pistole'. That was the P6. This is just a commemorative commercial P225 denoting the fact it was this (P6) model used by the German Police and is discontinued.

I was only looking for a nice P225 or a former Polizei P6 pistol that could use some TLC from a can of Brownell's baking lacquer, but this one popped up and fell into my lap instead. I thought, hey, you got the money, you may as well get a nice one. Especially since it's one of the last made. 358 from the end of production to be precise.

I pick it up Tuesday.

The grip on the P225 fits me as well as the Walther P5, and I really can't tell you which of those pistols I love more. They are both outstanding examples of 9mm single-stacks of their era.

These are the auction photos I downloaded. The first one showing the overall pistol is the worst and I couldn't doctor this for nothing. I tried.

The rest aren't too bad.

Hey, thats a nice one! Think if I had the money, a 220 W German .45 would be my number one gun to buy. Dearly love those things. I lost both my 220 and 245, haven't been able to replace them.

Looking crazy. I've planned to buy one for me. Though using 220 at the moment, still loving it!

Should we expect a range report this weekend?

It might happen tomorrow or Friday, but don't expect it.

It's a PITA to get to the range on a good day, and we've had some rain here.
