Here is an eminently serviceable, attractive specimen of the original Sig Sauer Compact, the P228 chambered in 9mm: 9mm Parabellum, 9mm Luger, call it what you will; The 9mm. This specimen’s finish is better, in some respects, than a factory CPO refinished Sig, or even a new one. Its slide has been Teflon coated by our friends at Black Ice Coatings in Utah, one of the most durable finishes on this planet. This 228 has served with the Swiss State Police. From its KG Date Code, it was manufactured in 1996; and this pistol is thoroughly German, and serialized on its frame, slide, and barrel. Its only U.S. marking is PW Arms import stamp on the right side of the slide, as the photos show. It is standard traditional double action: from a resting hammer, a long double action pull on the first shot, and then single action until the shooter engages the decocker. It has the automatic firing pin safety system used on previous Sig Sauer pistols, and the magazine catch can be mounted on the left or right side to suit the operator's preference. An essentially closed design concept renders the P228 particularly resistant to dust and dirt. The 228 is the best quality 9mm Compact pistol on the market, emphasis on best more than on Compact. It is the smallest variant double-stacked magazine capable descendant of the definitive P226. This P-228 has a matte blue slide, and matte anodized lightweight alloy frame. Barrel is 3.9 inches 6 groove 1:10 rifling; weight empty is 26.1 oz; length 6.9 inches; height 5 1/4 inches; maximum width 1.5 inches; 5.5 inch sight radius; 10 pound double action trigger pull; and Sig's classic crisp single action pull at 4 1/2 pound vicinity, with negligible felt creep. Capacity is normally 13+1 rounds, but we are furnishing two Mec-Gar 15 shot magazines. Sights are polymer filled white dot, refurbished from the old night sights. Frame levers and magazine release show moderate whitening; apart from that, residual surface detractions are not readily conspicuous, a few matte spots on the frame where we retouched it. We rate it as Very Good, perhaps even Excellent, refinish. Photos, at any rate, ought to suffice for our distinguished shoppers to judge finish grade for themselves. It is certainly Excellent mechanically; the Swiss Police are among the best worldwide for weapons maintenance. Replacement price on this pistol in our area, if a person can even find one, is upwards of $1,000.00. We're offering the Black Ice tefloned Sig P228 in the photos, however, for only $ 569.00.
