For those not aware of it, a prototype SIG-Sauer pistol was revealed in this thread. It is our privilege to host its auction.

Some of you have asked the identity of the SIG employee who willed the pistol to waynewash. His name was Lee Salter, who was a Manager of Technical Services for SIGARMS in the 1980s.
Wayne tells me that Lee was a former US Navy fighter pilot, Air America Pilot, and a gunsmith at Odin Intl./Collectors Armory.

His ID badge and business card will accompany the pistol.


The story is contained in the thread on this pistol, but, briefly, three prototypes were crafted and two were destroyed, leaving this one pistol extant.

As the photos show, the pistol exhibits wear and marks indicative of its toolroom origin. Both the P225 slide and the P226 frame date to 1984.

The auction will run from 7:00 PM EST Wednesday, October 5th, to 7:00 PM EST Sunday, October 9th.

The reserve price for the auction is $4000 (4000 USD). The minimum bid increment is $25. Payment will be certified funds or PayPal.

**Who is eligible to bid?**

To bid on this item, you must have been a member of this forum for at least 120 days and you must have at least 40 posts.


All questions should be posted in this thread.

Waynewash, i wish your auction the best. It is out of my price range to say the least. It is however the coolest gun i have seen up here for a while. Certainly the best gun sale on here that i can remember. Thank you for thinking of this group, and choosing to offer it here.

How will the auction end? Will there be a 15-minute rule, or similar (like GunBroker), or will the highest bid time-stamped at/before 7:00 PM EST on October 9th be the winner (like ebay)?

Good luck guys. 4K seems like a very very fair reserve.

Very cool. Way out of my range, but I am sure this will go to a good home.

It sounds like this is indeed a one of a kind item. A hell of a collectors piece.

One incredible piece of SIG history that I wish I could bid on. Best of luck, sir - she'll find a good home amongst this crowd.

Is that a standard 228/229 9mm mag in the first photo?

How many of the original (sloped mag plate) mags are included?

I missed the original topic for justifiable reasons and just found it last night. (Meaning that I was not financially prepared for this auction.)

How much time is allowed for the highest bidder to deliver funds?

Out of my money range but what a significant Sig item it is. Love to have it but we need to eat, etc. for the next few months.

Beautiful and a true collectors item. Good luck with the auction.


I'd rather be hated for who I am than loved for who I'm not.

Congrats to Para and waynewash for getting this done.

Excellent piece for a collector.

I'm sorry to hear that Lee has passed. I frequented a gunshop he worked at in Sterling, Va. and bought my first SIG there.
