    Just wanted to pass on to everyone that there are about 10 Sig P226 guns at Bear Arms in Kent, WA. I just picked mine up after the wait period. It was $50. they are LE buybacks that were decommissioned, so they are missing some parts, barrel, mags, etc.

    Here is a pic of mine:

    That's wild! I would have bought them all. Keep us updated on you build, when you pull out a 200 (or less) dollar Sig at the range jaws will drop.

    Typically I'd agree, but I may not have seen this otherwise so good deal!

    Except it looks to be missing BOTH the breech block AND the locking block. That is some serious $$$$.

    I got all excited when I saw this. Then started adding up all the costs (WHEW!!). Unless you have a line on the parts used, you'd be way ahead to just buy a used (and probably in better condition) P226. I stopped adding when the price exceeded used. I wouldn't be surprised to find out if you bought new parts it would be more $$$ than a new gun.

    Or keep an eye out for a good price on a 22 conversion kit

    I thought about that to. But wouldn't you still need the lock block? A $140 part, if you can find one.

    I got a fun question...why are these stripped out? Other LE buybacks are intact, why are these special?

    A lot of them are used in Explorer type or other training programs. Parts that make them fire are removed but retain most of the weight and feel for the trainees.

    There are numerous reasons but after my experience with a "reputable" vendor at the PDX gun shows selling me a P220 that was, "missing a few parts" and ended up having a badly cracked frame(all the way around the beaver tail area!) and not wanting to give my money back, I won't buy any of these guns except to build said .22 kit, maybe.

    Keep us posted on the progress if any of these get built back into guns. They would be great to do some fun patterns and go wild with melting the edges, etc.
