    Thread: let's see your Sig Sauer P6 pistol!

    1. 10-25-2008 02:45 PM #106
      I have been going to the range now 1-2 times week since I got this gun about a month ago. I love it. I have small hands that smell of cabbage (thanks, Mike Meyers) so the singe stack grip fits perfectly. I painted on some night sights too-they seem to work pretty darn well....especially for the price I paid-some used spray paint, half a q-tip and some butane from my lighter-maybe 10 cents worth of materials. Here's the sights, sorry about the schiesty quality.

      This coming week I'm starting to call a few local shops and see what their transfer fees run. AIM doesn't list them anymore, but Centerfire Systems does. I'm getting amped.

      I'd love to pick up one of these cheap, to burry in the backyard somewhere or keep as a "throw-away" pistol

    6. 10-31-2008 03:04 PM #111
      Good luck - the supply is drying up right now...plenty of online retailers are yanking them from their sites because they're gone. :-( Time to pick one up where I can find one...

    7. 11-04-2008 08:34 PM #112
      Since there are so many p6 owners in one place I think this maybe the right place to ask this, what sort of magazines are available for it, it comes with 8rd clips right?

    8. 11-04-2008 08:36 PM #113
      yea

      i posted a couple up about a group buy maybe....the cheapest ive found i think is $35 for new factory


    9. 11-04-2008 08:39 PM #114
      is 8 rd all that is available though?

      yep... that's enough when **** hits the fan?

      maybe there's a 10rd extended mag?

      the p6 is not a shtf pistol, imo

      and if you were to use it as such, its an "ill use this while i get to my real shtf pistol" pistol

      no you have it all wrong...you use your shtf pistol while you get your shtf shotgun while you get your shtf rifle

      i just changed out the hammer spring for a 225 hammer spring

      holy cow, what a HUGE difference

      it was a $4 part, and the trigger pull is SO much better now

      I'm still waiting to hear from several local shops.

      According to several of them, with as long as these have been on the market now, most of the "good" ones have been snapped up already. "Yeah, we moved a number of them back in the spring and summer."

      I found one 225 (not the P-6 version) locally in "surprisingly darn good shape" (according to the shop owner) for $400. Advantage here is you can see it before you commit to it. They have another with a full Robar refinish for $600. Pricey, and I'm not too concerned with character marks and simple cosmetic wear.

      Another shop said they can order a P-6 in for a $40 transfer, but it would be an unknown quantity until we open the box. Plus, there are almost no distributors left that seem to have them anymore.

      These inexpensive buggers are getting hard to get one's hands on. I'll have to get my mitts on a Shotgun News or something and start doing some digging of my own. AIM doesn't have any, neither does Centerfire Systems. A few shops through GunBroker has them, but they're already $400 by the time you transfer and ship one in.

      If anyone is interested, cross posting this.... I just signed up for a group buy regarding Bar-Sto 225 (P6) replacement barrels,,,,, If anyone wants the contact info on the guy running the GB, PM me....

      Here is the original info from the sigforum.com posting.....

      ----------

      Here's the info I have from Rebekah at Bar-sto.

      If you are interested email me at srairmanjeff@yahoo.com with your name, best phone # to reach you on, and what kind of barrel(s) you want. Options and prices are listed below. Once we have 50 then we'll call her directly with payment information. A 50% deposit is required when you place the order

      Attention:
      The email below is instructions on how to place an order for a 225/228 barrel AFTER we have rounded up all 50 or more orders. Please do not call to place an order for a 225/228 barrel until instructed to do so. Thank you!

      To place your order for a Sig 225/228 barrel, you need to contact me by phone with all your contact and payment information. If that somehow is not possible, please contact me at Barstoinfo@uia.net. We do not ship outside of the United States. When we receive all orders and payment, approximate wait time on the production of these barrels will be 16-18 weeks. If you do not want to wait that long, please let us know now. If you later decide to back out on your order, there will be a fee in order for us to refund your money. When you place the order, I need all the specs on the barrel. If you want it extended, threaded (need the thread pitch), ported, 6 inch barrel or standard. Pricing goes as followed:


      1) Standard barrel: $150.00

      2) Extended barrel: $161.25

      3) Threaded barrel: $161.25 plus $45.00 for threading, and $25.00 for the thread protector, if you want one.

      4) 6 inch barrel: $198.75

      5) Ported barrel: $161.25 plus $25.00 for ports.

      You have a choice between Semi Drop In (SDI) or Match Target (MT) barrels. 7 out of 10 times our SDI barrel drop right in, other times you may need some minor fitting. Our MT barrels are built oversized for gunsmith fitting. If you order the SDI barrel and it doesn't drop in, you can send the barrel and your slide in for a free fitting. The only thing we ask for is $18.00 for return shipping. If you order the MT barrel and you want us to do the fitting, the fitting charge is $175.00. We also require the cost of return shipping on the pistol which can be from $55.00 to $75.00.

      Marschal grips came in this weekend. I ordered the walnut with black finish. It is a little more brown than I expected, in some lights. The backstrap feels a bit bigger than stock. Overall fit and finish is excellent. You can see by the last pic that the parts mate up perfectly. But now I think I need to re-blue the gun to get the rest of it looking up to par with the grips!

      Sweet grips. When the grips on their 226s were looking shoddy and beat up, a couple people I know on the Southfield PD sprayed them with a bedliner or matte bumper paint type of stuff. It looked pretty good, felt "grippy" in the hand, and was pretty cheap. I'm not sure how well it wears, but I'd guess it's easy enough to respray if you need to.

      OTOH, I'm still looking for a decent copy.

      I'll take another! But I need to get this one refinished, and it needs some sort of sights besides plain iron, I can't make out what I'm looking at.

      My first and not my last Firearm... Came with 3 8 round mags and the case. Great gun so far.. Mags are iffy tho.. causes a round to half load and slide sticks.. sometimes the slide will stick with a round available, but release the slide lock and it will load. can anyone give me a reason for this? is something wrong with me gun? or operator error? Thanks PS: i paid 444 after all the CA crap...

      Those look like ProMags. They're generally, "okay," for range mags, but nothing I would use for carry or home defense. What you're finding is that there are a couple of small but significant differences in the ProMags when compared to OEM mags. IIRC, the difference is a slight dimension change in the follower where the follower would contact the slide release prematurely and cause the slide to lock back with rounds left in the mag.

      I think I still have an unaltered ProMag with my kit (my others have been tweaked and have worked well since just after I bought my own P6). If so, I'll try to remember to snap a couple of pics later when I get home from work and show you what I mean.

      Had one. Here you go. The OEM mag has a steel follower, while the ProMag has a plastic one.

      Here's a semi-side shot.



      The ProMag is on top.

      These two, the OEM mag is on the right.





      You can see that the finger on the follower on the OEM mag is a bit lower. With the ProMag having a slightly higher corresponding section of the follower, it's not too surprising that it's hitting the slide lock with a round left in the mag. My other ProMags have had the follower whittled away with a Dremel along the front on the left side (with the magazine oriented as it would in the pistol) until it's consistent in height to the same area on the OEM mag.

      My dad bought a Swiss Police P225 (with heel mag release) a few months ago from AIM... I haven't seen any P6/P225s in great numbers for a long time now.

      You and me both!

      I can't believe that CO Gun Sales has "surplus" P210s from Switzerland for damn near $4000!

      My dad bought a Swiss Police P225 (with heel mag release) a few months ago from AIM... I haven't seen any P6/P225s in great numbers for a long time now.
      Do you know what kind of pricing they were getting for them?
