    Just received my P6 (German surplus guns) and am rather pleased. Looks a little holster worn but the internals don't look as though it has been shot alot. Probably carried more than shot

    Bought it for the girlfriend to have around so I can reclaim my 226.

    Mags are a bit tough to find....and pricey too!

    Who else got in on the cheap sig P6 deal?

    From what I've been hearing on various forums, apparently the Sig P6/P225 mag supply has been drying up a bit lately. I think they used to be somewhere around $18 a piece or so. I just saw someone on Gunbroker trying to sell a pair for $100! :eek: There were a couple auctions more reasonable around $60-70 for 2-3 mags.

    Germany and Austria must have shipped a container load (or several) of those things over because everyone that handles surplus pistols is selling them.

    AIM Surplus

    Military Gun Supply

    Beware that these are old pistols (friend of mine bought one stamped 11/79), and have definitely been used. Holster wear and polishing on the chamber are guaranteed. The grips probably won't like solvents and are both difficult and expensive to replace. Magazines are nearly impossible to source.

    Having said that, my friend loves his.

    I bought a 6/225 for my mom (mother's day/birthday) and purchased a couple extra mags at time of sale for $12/each. Gun easily does 1" at 15y, just not with me.

    I called all the one's you listed, none available. BTW the guy I talked to at military gun supply is a butthole! I wouldn't buy any from him if they were the last on earth.

    MGS is not my favorite place to shop in-person. It's not in a good neighborhood and attracts some unsavory characters to boot.

    AIM Surplus is supposed to be accepting pre-orders for their next shipment if their website is correct.

    Promag. Ugh. Hope those work out for you - my experience with their pistol magazines has been rather bad.

    I'd call him. He may have the real thing too.

    The ones I bought are not Promag. They are used Police trade-ins. They were listed as G-VG (see my quote) I would rate them as good.

    It's worth a call.:)
