Just let me know when you want to trade!
I'll certainly pick up a West German P226 at some point soon.
The slide rails on that look to be in very good condition. The rails on that particular gun have the "stepped" rails or "mud rails". These style rails were associated with cracks forming in the frame, and I believe were only used for a couple years before going back to full length, solid slide rails.
I don't know about the warranty, but it only takes a phone call.
Now you've done it, went and got me all worked up so I need another one of these, W. German P220, .45 ACP.
Congrats, Mike. You got a very good deal on it, imo.
You're lucky I don't collect P226, or it would have been mine.
Thank you, I will take your rejects anytime.
I wish that I had kept my P220's red velvet box.
If memory served, the manual referred to the pistol as a "combat pistol".
The rails on this pistol are not the mud rails as I understand them. The mud rails were made in 86-87 I think and they would be several relief cuts where you see the single cut in my pistol. The rails on my pistol are the answer to the mud rail problem. If I am wrong some one please correct me.
Mud Rail version note multiple scallops on the example below.
The P220 is the pistol that replaced the P210 for service, so that would make sense.
you are correct...and I wouldn't worry about mud rail pistols unless you shoot very hot 9mm or don't maintain your pistol and don't do spring changes at the proper intervals...which to me is good advice no matter which pistol you shoot...
I would agree. I think you would have to shoot a lot of hot rounds to have a problem or abuse it in some other way.
I sold my mint 1993 P220 .45 for $650 and bought a G30SF for $500.
Used the extra profit for extra mags and ammo and never looked back.
It was a sweet shooter in SA mode. Needlessly long in DA.
Bulky with a high bore axis and a limited (7-8) round capability for it's size range.
