SIG Sauer P6 (P225) 9mm, $350 (Grade: A)

Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

Looking compact and precise, the Sig P6 was an efficient single-stack nine that fitted our hands well. The DA pull was too stiff, but the SA pull was great. Unfortunately, you cannot carry this gun cocked and locked. There is no safety, just a hammer-drop lever from the ancient Sauer M38.

Takedown was a snap, as was reassembly, but we had fits getting that spring jammed back in. Workmanship was about as good as it gets. Updated versions of these guns like the P225 commonly sell for twice the price of this one, or more.
The pencil points to the decocking lever, which we often mistook for the slide stop. That lever is to the rear of the decocker.
We found this crud inside the Sig after we had a failure to feed, resulting in a stovepipe with a live round. After cleaning it thoroughly, we had no more problems.
