First time Police Trade - In
This was my first experience in several respects, purchasing this firearm. First dealing with Recoil Gunworks, and first time purchasing a police trade in weapon. I'd like to say it's been a totally positive experience. Recoil provided a easy to use site and great communication throughout the purchase and shipping of the firearm. The firearm arrived in a much better state than what I had expected. Although it was listed as "very good" on the site, my grade would be that it was "excellent". I'd like to thank Recoil Gunworks for making this purchase so satisfying, and I will do additional business with them in the future!
Recoil Gunworks was easy to work with. They had great communication with very fast shipping. The 229R DAK I received dates to 2003 and has a German frame. Recoil Gunworks is conservative with rating at very good as I would place it closer to excellent. Rails are in great shape and it only has some honest wear with the majority being in the grip/mag well area. Mine came with its SIG case which isn't detailed in the item description. I will be a repeat customer for sure. Thank you Recoil!
I bought this quite a few month ago, and after buying a 'very good condition' glock trade in which can not compare with this, I think I owe this a good review. To be simple: The slide is clean and nice, almost no blue damage; The lower has very small dings, one or two only; barrel have rings outside from round checking? rifle lines are clean and clear; night sight works, dim; the only thing might raise a complaint is the screws on the grip, rust and busted. I am very happy to have this at half the price with not too much difference from a new one.
Very Nice for the money
This is my second Police trade in from recoil gun works. This one is not as nice as my P226 DA/SA rated as very good that i got from them. However its also $100 less than the 226 was. It is an outstanding value costing less than half of a new P229. It shoots like a dream and had the added bonus of having a sticker on the box from the Iowa state patrol. Its always nice to know what agency it came from. Below are the links to my youtube reviews of this gun.
