While in my quest to get my first firearm, I've decided on a Sig, and have already tried the 239, and liked how that felt and was wondering how a 229 compares to that. Also I found a certified pre-owned 229 for $567
and was wondering if that was a good price.

I have had my 229 for a while and bought it new for a little over $800 so to me $567 seems really reasonable and would buy another if I could get a hold of one at that price. I love my Sig’s and would recommend the 229 to anyone. I shoot mine all the time and is my preferred ccw. The 239 has a smaller capacity mag and as such the grip will be smaller and fit some people’s hands better then the 229. In regards to quality it is a Sig and will be hard to beat.

If you do get the P229 do yourself a huge favor and get some houge finger groove grips for it....The P229 with finger groove grips is the best feeling handgun I have ever handled. Every owner of a P229 that I know who has held another with the grips installed have ordered them! You will not go wrong with them I promise!

I have a 226 with the finger groove hogue grip and I think it makes it shoot a lot better.

I have found a used Sig 220 in "very good" condition for the amazing price of $350, and have been thinking about trading my Witness P Compact .45 in on it. I bought the Witness from the same shop that I found the Sig, and for almost the same price. I asked them how much they would allow as trade and was told $200 at most. The manager wasn't there and I was tolld this by the asst mgr. I plan to speak to the mgr Monday to see if I might get more. I don't think I want to take a $150 loss, especially since I like the Witness. But I do so want the Sig. How about some feedback, WWYD?

A used Sig Sauer P220 in VG shape for $350? If you haven't shot a P220, you are in for a pleasant surprise! (I own a P220 Compact and love the way it shoots!) Does this shop have a range? Couldja fire it? I'd buy a used P220 in a heartbeat, but that's only one person's opinion. As for your other firearm, I only know of them through assorted forums. Someone must need the $$ to be parting with a P220 in VG shape. Any spare mags?

My 2 cents: It's Wheelin' & Dealin' time!

That seems like a very low price. If it is truely in good shape I say take the hit on the witness. Figure you loose $150 on the trade so it is like you will have $500 invested in the P220. It is worth that in my opinion. Now let me talk you out of trading a gun in on it. I say if you want the Sig go for it and keep the witness as well. I try to never sell a gun because I know I will regret it later in life.

You can't go wrong with a Sig Sauer P229 ... if you have a chance to get one at a good price, which $567.00 is... I'd jump on it, if I were you.

I've owned and still own a Sig 229, now in the Equinox... and would never get rid of this pistol.

The 239 is my normal carry. But the 229 is awesome as well.
Different guns. You'd need to handle and shoot them both. I sold a LNIB
229 for $525 last summer. Wasn't a CPO. The guy definately got a great
deal. I'd say $567 OTD is a good price.

I love Sigs. I bought a used SigPro 2340 (Sig certified) for $399.00. I love my gun. Fits my hand perfectly and it's a .40 cal (.357 interchangable).

Great gun for the price.
