Leave it as it is. Dang near impossible to find stuff for them and it's
to nice a piece to put junk on.

I'd get a lighter weight hammer spring & maybe some sights..
The P6s come with a very heavy hammer spring compaired to a P225 as they were meant for hard primer use.. I'd get either a SIG spring or a Kit from Wolff and experiment..
Congrats on the P6!!

I'm picking up my 2nd P6 this week. So yeah I'm a fan. I install the 18lb hammer spring from Wolff and like the difference. The part number is 28418. You can replace the take down lever with one that has a ledge. I like that because it seems to reduce/eliminate the little swirl older Sigs can get from the flat take down. I dislike the P6 hammer. That little hook does nothing for me. Replace it with a traditional 225 hammer. Top Gun has the hammer and take down.

Take down lever: http://www.topgunsupply.com/parts-si...kedown-levers/
Hammer: http://www.topgunsupply.com/parts-si...rs_pivot_pins/

If you find your pistol has problems feeding hollow points this guy will modify the feed ramp. He also has some neat parts for the P6. I've heard very good things about his work, http://customizedcreationz.com/sigp6p225parts.html

Finally, there's a good old refinishing!

Someone already mentioned that the pistol is fine as is and I agree 100%. I like these modifications but if you decide to do nothing with it but shoot it you're still making a good decision.

I'd say you got an amazing deal on one of my favorite guns.
Shoot it and see how it feels. A lighter weight hammer spring is an inexpensive upgrade. The stock spring is 28 lbs on the P6. I've got a Wolff 20lb spring in one of mine that feels great. You might want to consider changing out the recoil spring and other springs as well since there's no way to know when it was last serviced.

Night sights are always a nice upgrade too.

Congrats on the P6 and good price . You can send them back to Sig and have it gone through . It's great deal especially when they install new night sights and replace worn and defective parts and clean it.

Congrats on a fine Sig classic!

Given the age of this previusly owned Sig, you may want to consider sending it to Sig for their tuneup/night sight package.

I bought one a few years ago and it became one of my favorite guns! The finish was fairly worn when I got it and I've been thinking of having it refinished but that's about all I want to do to it.
I have two factory mags and two Pro Mags. I've never had a problem with the aftermarket mags at all.

Or you could go ahead and trick it up with cerakote finish, black chrome controls, tritium night sights, pachmyr grips and skelton trigger/trigger job that makes it smooth as butter!

Skeleton trigger on a SiG combat pistol?

I own a pair of P6's, just got my 2nd one yesterday. I'll post pics by the weeken. Ahem, but I confess that neither looks as good as those two!!! WOW! What made you even think about black chrome over a black finish? Customized Creations does the skeleton trigger, did he do the refinish too? Sorry if I'm hijacking the thread but hey I'm only human and those are 2 good lookin pistoles!!!!!!
