I purchased my B6P last winter at a local Rural King ... $252 net after tax & 12% holiday rebate (5 weeks).
The cheapest I've ever seen was this summer during a Rural King weekly special ... $245 net ($229+tax).
http://www.rkguns.com/eaa-sar-b6p-9mm-f ... 00422.html

My B6P has never failed, not even once. It is accurate, durable, economical to shoot, and easy to clean.
I added a $6 rubber grip sleeve from ebay. Extra mags are widely available; Mec-Gar MGCZ7517AFC.
Of the dozen handguns I've owned over the last 40 years, it's easily my best-buy for target and HD.
It is slender (1.2") and lightweight (28oz) enough to carry comfortably OWB under a sweatshirt or jacket.
It's only concealment issue is it's long 8.2" overall length, so IWB carry is limited by comfort.
I'm 6ft 225# and still desire a pocket 380 and/or a single-stack 9 for deeper concealment. hth

I have just shy of $200 in rebates from the last 12% sale they had... waiting for the next 12% sale to use them. :D

Cost me $13 to ship my new pistol for repairs. They offered a shipping label but I don't print.

That's cheap.
How was it shipped? ... by an FFL via USPS? ... insured? ... tracked?
What repairs were needed? ... did the repairs fix the problem, better than "new"?

Pony Soldier --- Congrats on your new B6PC.

Here's a link to a $6 rubber grip sleeve on eBay ... http://www.ebay.com/itm/252532644369
I've got long fingers, and this sleeve fits my hand & full-size B6P very well.
There is NO palm swell (which are more common on single-stack sleeves).
And the rubber material has retained its clean, tacky feel.
It may need trimmed to fit your compact, easily done with a sharp blade or scissors.

I've also read that full-size magazines (17rd) work perfectly in the compact, including LRHO.
When brand new, both the trigger and the safety may feel very tight.
Mine relaxed after it was cleaned & lubed, and fired its first 50-100 rounds.
I've never adjusted the rear sight, just developed a better grip and it's been dead-on.

These affordable, accurate, reliable pistols are excellent for beginners and experienced shooters alike.
I hope your new SAR proves to be as enjoyable as mine. Cheers!

Re; B6PC.....Local dealer that I've worked with before quoted $260. My CPX2 and $100 takes it home. Decent deal, or should I shop on-line?

1) Does he have a B6PC in stock? Have you held it? Have you racked the slide?
By design, the slide is smaller than most other semi-autos, with less area to grasp onto.
If he doesn't have one there, perhaps he has another similar CZ model you can manipulate.
The smaller slide could be difficult for someone with weak or arthritic hands. Otherwise, go for it.

2) $260+6%tax ($276 net) off the shelf is a fair price, not a great sale price, but not a bad price.
So, his proposed deal of your used CPX + $100 OTD, values that CPX at $176.

3) A quick search of Armslist in Allentown shows relatively few used handguns for sale.
I've read very little about PA gun laws, but my understanding is that they are constrained.
You would know better than I about your local market & jurisdiction.

So, today it comes down to whether you want to haggle the used CPX elsewhere for more than $176.
If I've interpreted the numbers correctly, it appears to me that your LGS is offering a fair deal.
Especially if you prefer not to deal with the Armslist public, which is completely understandable.

I sold my CPX in two days on Armslist for $220, but it was a brand-new-in-box factory replacement.
I lost $48 net from what I had originally paid new, but I just wanted it gone. Worst gun I ever owned.
Despite the conjecture of others, a CPX is almost never a "keeper". Most handguns rent like draft beer.

So true.
Renting a handgun is small change...you'll more than likely have to buy there ammo.
In the end a great way to sample several guns on the cheap.

Yeah ship my dime is $80-$90 I'd print by hand if they sent me a label.

My parts came in so hopefully they are around long enough for me to keep fixing this thing.
