    My P226 was stolen.

    Maybe I'll get lucky and find it in a machine someday...

    This has got to be the best thread derailment in a long time.

    I completely forgot the purpose of this thread once I reached the end. But I have to say, I much prefer the pistol discussion

    I would go Taken style on someone if they took my P226. I picked it up used (from a police department for a steal) and absolutely fell in love with it. The only downfall to it is that there is no rail on mine, which kinda sucks. I am a big fan of big heavy platforms, not composite frames. Now the next possible EDC would be after I win the lotto and either go with a USP .45 or a VP45. Ugh the grip on a VP is epic. The USP .45 would be nice because my wife already has one and wants to make it her EDC and then we could use the same mags.

    Honestly I am shocked it hasnt been closed yet, and not because of the derailment, but lack of anything from the OP regarding actually trying to help his own cause.

    I wonder why it is still for sale? I am sure it isn't the price. Please detect sarcasm.

    bosgarage57: I hate to be pesimisstic, but this looks and sounds like a $1500 dollar mill. Most people are looking for 10 X 50 mills, or at least a 9 X 49". I hope you do better, but I have been to a lot of auctions and don't think I am far off. Good luck.

    To even have a chance at $4500 it would have to be off a fresh rebuild complete with scraping, new bearings, and a factory type paint job.

    "?" If the OP doesn't even know whether it's for sale, that's not a good sign.

    That was my first pistol! It was a CPO I picked up and added Trij night sights, awesome shooter and dead nuts reliable. It's had exactly 3 failures in umpteen thousands of rounds.

    Location has a lot to do with pricing. These statements might be valid where the lathe is located but in other
    places things would change. Around here that machine would most likely sell for somewhere between $3000
    and $4000....possibly more. Very few lathes and mills for sale around here right now...

    Not to mention, $3000 worth of tooling added in

    I don't think you could find any equivalents in the USA of machine Siberia as you could find in Canada, your whole country has less people than our most populist state.

    bos: I swear I'm not picking on you, but I went back and re-read your description in post #1 and have a question. It reads that the quill dia. is 2" and has a quill travel of six inches. Nether of these sounds right. Bridgeports have a quill dia. of more than 3" and only 5" of travel. I'm sure that was just an oversight.

    I have been offered a J-head for $1200 or a large old Jet mill/drill for not much less. It is not as good-looking as yours and probably more used. It comes from a bloke I trust so I am hoping that with a clean up it will be sufficient for me as a replacement for a Mao's Miniature Mill from Grizzly.
