Originally I wanted to keep my German P220 9mm. But somebody on my local Canadian forum really liked it so I sold it, since I also do prefer the grip of the wider P226. On Sig's website, they advertise a model known as the P226 German, which comes in two configurations: E2 grips, milled slide, external extractor Standard grips, internal extractor, folded carbon slide and night sights. I am leaning towards the standard grips model with the folded slide and internal extractor. I don't know know if these are a limited run, or what they are. Each Sig German has the German proof markings, and triple serial numbers, just like the old style. I only have TWO concerns about the P226 with the folded slide and internal extractor: 1. Is it hard to find parts to service these types of P226s since all the new ones tend to be milled/external extractor? Parts availability might be scarce. 2. Is the milled slide a LOT stronger than the folded? Is the folded "weak" i.e shoot it sparingly, no +p/only mild ammo? I plan to shoot this thing...not in competition but shoot it when I go to the range and I don't want to worry about it breaking on me and not having parts around. Runner up is an MK25 Navy, which is a marketing gimmick sure but still a cool gun, though I hear so much bad crap about the Exeter made Sigs. If anybody could answer my questions about the internal extractor model P226 that's shown on Sig's website, that'd be great! I don't know where they're coming from but they look cool. I didn't know they still made folded slides. Thanks. My Visa is biting me in my wallet, and since I sold my P220 I want to use the money to put towards a new Sig before it gets spent irresponsibly!
