    I finally got the chance to check out a Sig P210. They certainly are the best pistol that Sig has made in my opinion. The frame size is similar to an Browning Hi-Power, and has easy operation. Very ergonomic in my hands, similar to a 1911 in feel, and with a nice smooth trigger; relatively lightweight pull, with a subtle break.

    I don't think they are worth the money they command, but I suppose the majority is the rarity factor. You are, however, getting one smooth shooting pistol. I was very pleased.

    I agree they are expensive but definately worth it. Did you pull it apart and look inside? The machining inside is just as good as outside.

    I have a 210-6 and a 210-5 and they are some of my "forever" guns. Too nice to sell and extremely reliable. I have like 40 mags for the me now so I should be set for life so to speak.

    Which 210 did you shoot? Adjustable sights or not? Heavy frame or light?

    Adjustable sights, wood contoured grips. I'm assuming it was a light, it was relatively slim.

    This is the heavy frame, not the lack of a cut ahead of the slide stop.

    This is the light frame. It has the cut and is noticeably lighter.

    Here are my 210's. The -6 is the top one and the -5 is the bottom one. Good shooters!

    Yeah, as I recall when they were still in production they ran somewhere in the neighborhood of $1000. If they were still producing them at that price, I'd buy one in a heartbeat - they're epic pistols.

    I think they are closer to $2k.

    You may be right, and I'm just looking through rose-colored glasses in my memory.

    for $2k, I'm not so sure I'd bite - I think $1,500 is the most I could possibly go for any firearm.
