/k/, convince me to buy a P226 instead of a S&W Model 27... I was dead set until the urge for a wheel gun hit me...
>>
>>27800459
If you love two women, pick the second one.
If you truly loved the first one, there wouldn't be a second one.
>>
>>27801026
I'll eventually get both. I have a Sig P239 and want a P226 to go along with it. But I also have a S&W 442 and want a nice S&W .357 magnum to go along with that as well.

I just can't decide what to get first because the other might be a while before I pick it up.
>>
A P226 is the more prwctocalt weapon. If you're looking for a practical handgun for defensive or training use, buying a Model 27 over a modern autoloader would be silly.

If you're looking to make the purchase about collectibility, 'soul,' casual range fun, or class, then I can't convince you to not to get an M27.

There are fewer fun things than spending an afternoon at the range with a revolver.
>>
>>27801239
That's how I'm feeling, even though I want to get the big brother to my P239, I have and usually carry a Glock 19, so a fun gun is sounding nice.

Plus it'll give me an excuse to pick up a .357 lever action.
>>
>>27800459
lol just buy both. It's not like you need electricity in your house and you can go a few days without eating
>>
>>27801394
I just started another AR build and I'm putting money aside for a TA31 or 33. I can't buy both right at the moment.
>>
>>27800459
If the cylinder on the S&W is counter sunk then get the Model 27 if not ask what would Dirty Harry do?
>>
>>27801419
Not with that attitude
>>
>>27800459
I've found once that wheel gun bug bites you the urge must be satisfied. Get the Model 27 anon.
>>

The heart wants what the heart wants.

>>27802608
If you want a revolver get a revolver the sigs will still be there waiting for you. Plus isn't Sig doing some new legion version of the p226? Maybe the price on the standard ( 9mm 10 or 15 Rounds, .357 SIG 10 or 12 Rounds, .40 S&W 10 or 12 Rounds) , tacops ( 9mm (20 rounds) .40S&W, .357SIG (10 or 15 rounds), or MK25 ( 10 or 15 Rounds 9mm) will drop.
>>
>>27802683
OP here, it's hard because I want both. But I do want a revolver pretty bad. It's a bug that hasn't gone away and I love my 442 but want something larger and something more fun to shoot.

That said, If I get a P226 it'll be an MK25. If I went with a P229, it'd probably be the E2.
>>
>>27802716
If you want a big brother and not one that is practically the same size forget about the P229.

If your heart is set on the MK25 I'd highly recommend getting the SRT trigger. But try it first as you should with anything, alot of people do enjoy it but if your one who does not you just created a big hassle of having to sell the gun & purchase another.
>>
>>27802845
Yeah, I've been set on a MK25 since I bought my P239. It just makes it hard since I'm really wanting a Model 27 now too.
>>
>>27801057
Get the second one first you filthy polygamist. Then, the first one will bring you even more joy since you picked it up in addition to the other one.
>>
>>27801026
Damn nigga thats deep
>>
>>27800459
Why not both?
>>
Def get the 27. Sadly my father had to sell,his when we fell on hard times, I'm trying to find one as well. My entire family agrees that it was the smoothest firing pistol we've ever encountered. Like someone else said "there Will always be a sig for sale"
>>
>>27800459


Semi autos will be harder to get your hands on with the up and coming President race.

You can likely get the model 27 after.

If you can only have one I say get the 27. It's way more fun
>>
>>27803667
That was definitely a concern of mine. I'd like to get a P226 and a Glock 43 and finish my second AR before the Hillary storm hits
>>
>>27800459
flip a coin, when its in the air you'll feel whichever one you want more
and honestly both aren't exactly rare. Maybe the 27 more so, but its not like you wont have a chance to get the other one for a while
>>
>>27800459
wheel guns are fun. buy both.
>>
>>27804038


Get them and the mags. I think it's your best option
>>
Go with a model 29 .44 mag...hail to the king

Dirty Harry would get a real man's gun, a Model 29, and not settle for .357 Menopause.
>>
>>27800459
Automatics are a passing fad. The right choice is obvious
>>
>>27802716
A pre lock s&w is a little difficult to find and will hold its value pretty well compared to the sig. They'll be churning out sigs for many years so you'll have ample opportunities to procure one.
>>
>>27805217
I was just going to buy new and ignore the internal lock.

My only thing is that with Hillary's nomination, it may make Sigs, glocks, and their magazines harder to come by than a wheel gun for who knows how long?
>>
>>27802716
>>27802900
Mk25 isn't worth the price premium over the standard 226.

Get a tacops or legion.
>>
>>27804702
HEY im trying to eat here.
>>
>>27805380
A handgun ban will be extremely difficult. Stock up and magazines right now if you are sure you will be purchasing the P226 in the future. In all seriousness, get the one without a hillary hole. Better investment.
