TT-33 vs P1

I've been saving for a TT-33 and was almost ready to order when I discovered the local Gander Mountain had a Walther P1 for $199, about what an online TT would cost. $199 seems cheap for a P1, and they claim that it has a new barrel. Mechanically, it seemed sound and the barrel did look good, but I really don't know what to look for in a P1. However, the few examples I've run across in the past were not great shooters. I know the P1 has an aluminum alloy frame, but I don't know if that's really an issue. And I've already considered the ammo issue of 9x19 vs 7.62x25 and figure it's a wash either way. So, assuming equal condition, any opinions on which would be the better buy?

Edit - the P1 comes with a holster and spare mag.
