Yesterday I was able to pick up my police trade in P228.
Here she is:

Today I took her out to In-Kah-Pah and tested her out. I made it there in 46 minutes from La Mesa.
We may have some bad gun laws, but boy do we have nice weather
It was a beautiful day. The Sig shot like a dream. Not one malfunction, even using the cheap pro-mags that I got free with it.
It was very accurate and shot beautifully. My only complaint would be the stock grips. They feel too plasticy to me, so I may change them.

Her are some pics:
This is my buddy setting up when we got there:

My wife was still asleep when I left, so I borrowed her car:D

Congrats on your P228. She is a beauty. This is one of the GREAT sidearms. This is the ONE gun that I will never sell.

Thanks, I couldn't agree more.

Congratulations on a fine piece of European goodness. :thumbsup:

It's tough to beat a stamped slide P-series SIG.

Very nice, congrats! As for the grips, maybe a set of Nills or Hogues.

Very nice! That still looks to be in pretty good shape for a trade-in. I may have to swing by Turners to see what they have in stock.

Thanks, I'll check them out.

When I got mine I looked at about 8 different ones. I actaully didn't pick the nicest looking one because I wanted one with the nicest insides. All of them looked very nice for being police trade in's IMO.

Actually it looks really good for a police trade-in! I'm gonna have to drop by Turners now for a looksie. Congrats on your Sig! It looks badass!

Check 'em out, but better bring your credit card.:D

I pick up my Zurich PD P228 from Turners this Friday.

You're going to love it:25:

How do these Sigs compare to a P6? Size? Reliability? Does anybody have a side-by-side comparison? I've been wanting a trade-in Sig for a project but I'm undecided on which one I should get?

I am of course no expert, but I have read quite a but about the P228.
From what I've read the P228 is slowly becoming one of the most highly regarded Sigs ever. The size, weight, and balance is ideal and many think it is one of the best pistols ever. I don't know if I'm fully on board with all of that yet, but after shooting it once, I am pretty impressed.

Congrats on the new gun. Looks like this range needs a good clean up.

You mentioned that you got some Pro-Mags with your Sig. I'm assuming the regular mags that came with it were high-caps, correct? Turners didn't throw in some OEM Sig 10-round mags?

Between the p6 and the p228 there is no real big difference just that the p6 is a single stack mag and the p228 is a double stack... this makes the grip a little different between the two but other than that they are real similar.....
Also the p6 and the p225 are the same.

To add to this, if you have normal size hands and would enjoy having the sharp edges of the bottom of the trigger guard and floor plate on the single stack magazine of the P6 (P-225) you'll love the P6. I think they designed those models for small female german police officers :D Also unless the P6 is modified, it may have problems feeding HP ammo.
As for the P-228.........hit slik up because he has both models of which you speak of and he almost ended up with two P6's and no 228. If he had to make a choice between the two I'd be willing to wager on which one would be the keeper:38:

Yes if I had to keep one or the other it would be the 228 all the way.. and probably even over my p226.:D

I read somewhere that a P6 has slightly different feed ramps than a P225. I know the hammer is a little different as well.

Very true.

I also have both the P6 & P228. My P6 was mainly for my wife and she shot it very well. The slimmer single stack fits her hand like a glove. I do like the P6 & mine shot JHP just fine. Eat everything. First thing I did with the P6 was changed out the recoil spring & mag springs with the upgraded Wolff. Also hand polished the feedramp and block. Not a single hiccup with all ammo.

Yes if I had to keep one or the other it would be the 228 all the way.. and probably even over my p226.:D
Me too! Love my 226 but the 228 is an ALL-Around gun for me.

I read somewhere that a P6 has slightly different feed ramps than a P225. I know the hammer is a little different as well.
The older versions have a slight angle difference (2 degrees if i remembered it correctly 52 & 54). Some reported problems feeding the "bigger mouth" JHP rounds but with the mag spring replacements, mine had NO feeding issues at all.

I have more 228s than any other handgun (except single action revolvers)- they're the best Sig has (had) to offer.

Love my P228, but its a safe queen. Like brand new still, but the Glocks get the workout.
