    I saw a NIB Exeter marked SIG p220 today at a gunshop with NO rail and NO beavertail. :dunno: The shop owner had switched out the grips from wood to plastic as he said many who handled it complained the wood was too thick. It had the solid slide pin as well & a stainless no-folded slide. What gives?

    Was it two tone with adjustable sights?

    Black as the ace of spades with some sort of funky green three dot (non-tritium) sight setup.

    Did it have a red box? If so, it's a CPO. Sig mixed and matched parts for a lot of those things. For example my 220ST is a CPO. Stainless frame and slide but the slide is not labled 220ST. Another possibility is that you're looking at an early run of P220's. That might be most likely if it has an internal extractor.

    Sounds almost identical to mine. Wonderful gun. Don’t understand your question.

    Good looking 220. I don't understand the question either. :dunno:
     
  7. The SIG factory indeed mixes and matches on the CPO's, they call them Frankenguns. My Frankengun is a 220, no rail, no tail, dating to 2006. Blue alloy frame, stainless slide marked 220 Elite. Absolute tack-driver and probably the last gun I'd ever give up.

    They look so much better without the rail.

    FYI, my 2007 NIB 220ST's frame is not labeled "stainless" and also has an internal extractor. It's been failsafe reliable.
