FYI from their May 2007 issue on used 9mm pistols. www.gun-tests.com


Do good guns get better, or worse, over time? We didn?t know, so we shot a trio to find out. From Fountain Firearms in Houston (fountainfirearms.com), we purchased three guns with original boxes and owners manuals. They were the (counter price) $450 Astra A-100, the $525 Sig Sauer P225, and the $650 Walther P5 (which came with the original factory target). The winner: The P5 (above). It was priced higher than the other guns, but it was a real shooter and a bonafide collectible. After the test, Fountain told us there were several more P5s available for the $650 price of our test gun.


Regards,
Jeff

I believe the P225 was very collectable until the market was flooded with P6's (German Trade in's). Not sure how they differ from the P225, but all I can tell you is the bottom fell out on P225's.

The P225 is a nice gun, with limited capacity compared to the P228.

But like anything, if you look at the H&K P7's how they have sky rocketed in price - Some guns seem like a better investent then others (If you happen to think of the future)..
