Originally developed as a joint venture between Switzerland's SIG and Germany's JP Sauer & Sohn to replace the Swiss service pistol, Sig P2xx series pistols are today regarded by top-notch law enforcement agencies, including the FBI and the Texas State Troopers, as one of the most accurate, simple-to-operate, and easy-to-maintain side arms available. Professionals who carry it especially appreciate its "to hell-and-back' reliability, "quick-swipe" decocking feature (eliminating the need for an external manual safety), simple takedown, and straight forward sight system that produces the fastest and most stable target acquisition of any handgun on the market. The P228, with its high capacity but compact size, was introduced as the little brother to the flagship full sized P226 and big brother to the older P225. In the early 90's the US Military adopted the P228 as the "M11" for discreet carry by criminal investigation officers (CID, NCIS) in lieu of the big M-9 service pistol. This pistol bears "US M11" markings etched above the serial number on the right side, indicating its Government affiliation, rare on the civilian market. The FBI has also selected this model for field agent use. As shown by the photo, which shows 25-yd shooting results from a stock CPO pistol retained in the seller's collection from a previous lot, these guns are capable of outstanding accuracy. [NOTE: test results not necessarily of this pistol and no guarantee of accuracy for this pistol is expressed or implied in this listing.] Although no longer commercially cataloged, the P228 is still extremely popular and has its own "cult" following. Fortunately Sig Sauer does release small quantities of "CPO" factory refurbished and warranted guns from time to time to select dealers via their trade in program. Grade I is their top rating, and offers you a chance to pick up a fully inspected, refurbished, internally rebuilt, and warranted pistol in Excellent condition at a fraction of the new gun price!. Check out the photos! Don't miss your chance to pick up this outstanding and collectible combat pistol at an bargain price!
This specimen is styled as a standard police
or military service arm with typical SIG type controls,
including a US-style magazine release conventionally positioned behind
the trigger. The
pistol uses a standard Browning short, recoil operated,
action with trouble free barrel lock-up at the top of the
ejection port. This
often emulated but seldom perfected to achieve the rock solid barrel
lock up and resulting accuracy that is the hall mark of all Sig
down can be
accomplished in under 10 seconds via a simple lever mounted above
the trigger. Sig's unique frame mounted
quick swipe decocker is mounted on the left side of the frame behind
the trigger. The only other control is a slide catch mounted in
its classic Sig rear position on the left of the frame. What
this arrangement means is that the trigger is the only control you have
about when you absolutely, positively have to shoot.
The rear sight is a notch under embossed with a broad white bar which naturally lines the eye up with the dot on the partridge front sight. This system provides one of the most natural and easiest to acquire sight pictures available on any handgun. The slide is finished with Sig's matte black treatment, which matches the color of the corrosion proof alloy frame. The grips are pebble-textured plastic, also in black. The 2 original trademarked 13 round magazines are solidly built, and expertly finished in matte black. Made in the US and West Germany, the finish and overall workmanship on this gun are outstanding. This is a great deal on an accurate and extremely high quality factory direct auto-pistol at a fraction of the new gun price!
Overall condition of this gun (s/n B337xxx) is Excellent, nearly 100%. Bore condition is excellent although the bore, breach face, feed ramp, and hammer face clearly show evidence of previous firing. Burnishing of the finish at the muzzle end of the barrel and on the guide rod has developed at their lock up bearing points. This is typical of Sig pistols because of their tight fit. A trace of wear is also visible on the side of the breach block closest to the ejection port, again typical of Sigs. The exterior of the frame and slide are 100%. The two Sig-brand high-cap magazines are in excellent condition but previously used. The gun has been rebuilt internally. All accessories have been repackaged by Sig in original plastic bags. As a factory reconditioned item, this pistol comes with a full Sig warranty. It's also a great shooter and a fantastic self defense choice! Don't miss this great opportunity to buy this uncommon "US M11" Sig package at a price and condition that will not be easy to beat!
