Sig Sauer P226R 40 S&W w/ NS- Good+ Condition
Police Department Trade in Sig P226 40 S&W pistol w/ night sights. Night sights still functional. Pistol is DA/SA. Pistol comes with one 12rd mag, rail and night sights. Expect these pistols to have a small amount of holster wear, dings, scratches and normal handling marks. Overall these just are not in quite as good of condition as our Very Good pistols.
This is a USED pistol.

Received the order 2 days later, very little holster wear and came with the SIG case. Much better condition than I expected. I have yet to run some ammo through it, but with SIG checking it out prior there is not doubt that it will function as expected.
ordered a Sig P226 from Recoil Gun Works
I ordered five guns at once from this Recoil Gun Works the gun shipped quickly. I received my guns two days after placing my order. You can check out my full reviews of the guns I purchased at YouTube: Sig Sauer P226 SHOTCITY (Review Of Recoil Gunworks).
Pistol Was Rough! No way "Good+" condition! Boo
Heck I don't know, maybe $384 was a good deal for the pistol in the condition I received. I just can't help but feeling a little taken though.
Shipping was quick. Frame is German. All the parts were there.
I would never in lifetime call the pistol I received in "good" condition. It was rough. My pistol looks nothing like the "representative" pistol in their picture. If I had received that pistol I'd have been thrilled. They advertise it as 'just not quite as good as our very good". All of these words are of course subjective, but I think most people would agree on what very good means, and what not quite as good as very good means. I thought $384 seemed like a good price for a pistol in good, but not perfect condition. I knew I was buying a used pistol. I didn't expect a new gun for $384. That being said, the pistol I received was at best in "fair" condition, and that's being generous. I think a better description would have been "Rough", or maybe "Abused". As a previous LEO I can't believe someone carried and trusted their life to the condition of this pistol. I took the pistol down to the bare frame and slide, and the amount of grit and grime inside the frame and components of this gun was staggering. This gun looks as though it was shot a lot, carried a long time, and pretty much never cleaned. The finish is very dull and worn, like it rode inside a leather duty holster for 15 years, and was never wiped down or wiped off. Lots of dings and nicks on the frame. The grips are super banged up, not cracked, but almost worn smooth. They will need to be replaced. Grip screw are pitted and rusted. Night sights are dead, and the add specifically said they had life left in them.
Bottom line is, if my copy is representative of what they are passing off as "Good+", they aren't being totally honest. I'm guessing that most dealers are getting to the end of their Sig LEO trade ins. And as is the case, the ones that are left are probably like mine. Which is fine, just be honest with people about what they are getting.
I'm glad I took it home and tore it apart before shooting it. I'm probably gonna have to spend a couple hundred bucks on new parts to refurb it, in which case I would have just bough one in "very good condition". I didn't need another project gun, but now I have one. I feel like I rolled the dice and I lost.
