Gents,

Am considering getting a P6 just for giggles. Seems like the SIG bug dun bit...
Will the P6 reliably feed hollowpoints?
On the other hand I just found a outfit that sells CPO SIGS for $499.00 including shipping. Hmm, P239, P220...

Howdy Mr. Wes,

I have never owned a P6/P225, but those I saw on our range as personally owned handguns would handle any hollowpoint round we were using at the time - to include Winchester Black Talons (now called the SXT), 124 and 147 Hydra-Shoks, 124 Golden Sabers, and 124 Gold Dots. They also handled our 9mm frangible ammo without a stutter too, which was more than I could say for our newly issued mandatory handgun at the time.

But I also understand what you mean about the deal on the Sig CPOs too sir. It is not nice to tease the bears you know, hehehe.

Whatever decision you make I think you will be happy with the results. As someone who has been afflicted with Sigitis for a long time, please give us a range report when you have purchases another Sig. Whatever you get I think and hope you will be happy with it in your collection too Mr. Wes.

Its my firm belief that you can load a SIG with old cigar butts and it will feed them. All SIGS I have seen fired or fired were and are, truly world class.

demented,

Reliably feed old cigar butts? Now that IS a statement. Guess that because of the smaller caliber 9mm round it would have to be "Swisher Sweets".
Will let you know how my new P225 does. Suspect it will feed anything I can stuff in the magazines.
I have only heard of some P6's not feeding hollow points. I can not validate that one way or another.
Guess that's a moot point now, as I have a P225...

Hello. The P225's I've owned over the years have all been 100% reliable with any JHP round I've fed them. I've owned perhaps a half-dozen or so over the years and all were just stone-cold reliable and decent shooters. They do have a heavier DA trigger-pull than other SIG-Sauers but it is my understanding that when these pistols were being made for the German police, they specified a heavy pull for the first shot; SIG-Sauer simply designed their pistol to these specs. FWIW, I've known a couple of narcotics officers who carried these pistols by choice and in some very dicey situations.

Best.

The sig P6's have a different barrel then the p225. The P6's feed ramp is not "opened" up like the newer p225. The older P6 barrel is fine with
fmc but a lot of people experience problems with HP's.
I worked on my P6 barrel feed ramp and opened it up some.
Mine will feed 115 & 124 HP's with no problem. However...147 gold dots
jammed on me a couple times. This is discussed in detail on the sig forum. Hope this helps.

John!

Hi weshowe,
Went to Gander Mtn today just to look around really didn't have anything in mind just looking.When at the gun counter a guy asked the clerk how much for the Sig P6 will my ears went up and
I just listen in the clerk said that it was $349.00 plus tax.
So I asked if I could see one of them he handed it to me and I gave it a quick look over, out of the three I saw it looked to me that they were all in about the same condition. Some Holster ware, don't know about the inside and the parts couln't tell by such a quick inspection. But for $349.00 I think one would clean up just fine.Sure would like to know were I could fined a CPO
220 for right around $500.00 shipped any help is appreciated.
One other thing I did buy a P6 tryed to get the best one out of what they had there. Has anyone eles taken a look at the P6's
that are being offered for sale.What do you think as well as others . Thanks
