Silly, this thread is five years old. The OP hasn’t been back to the forum in 2 years, he won’t see your post. Please note the date of a thread before you bring it back from the dead.
Somethin to think about with a W. German Sig...To start off the only Semi auto pistols I own is my S&W Shield 40 cal. That I carry daily, and my Ruger Mk III for woods walk competitions. All my other pistols are either Contender or Encores. My son has a Sig 226 W. GERMAN that he wants to sell me, if I got this I'd probably try some speed completions buy I'm not even sure I'd like it yet.
He has 4 magazines a target holster with belt and mag. clips as well as a leather carry holster, and he wants me to purchase him a Springfield Stainless Ranger Officer in trade so somewhere between $900 - $1000.
My question is this. Is the W. GERMAN Sig 226 that good of a target gun or would I be better off getting a Springfield XDM or Glock ## instead? I know the P226's are considered as one of the best when built but how have they stood the test of time? Has the technology over the last 20 - 25 years caught up?
Thanks for the advise
