For sale is a P220 in 9mm with an American mag release. Gun is in excellent condition with slight surface wear, total round count is <200. The only serious wear is a scratch on the mag release plate that I caused when I switched the release from one side to the other (visible in photos).
This is one of a very small group of guns that were imported by PW Arms in the mid-90s. It bears a PW import stamp and a KF date code (1995).
Comes with original cardboard box with foam insert, original multi-language manual and two magazines. I replaced the grips with Hogue wraparounds and hex screws; original grips and screws are included.
Asking price is $1200 shipped to your FFL.

Can you show pic of the other side of the gun, also? Thanks.

Is it one of the 38 Super conversions? They are great shooting guns if so.
My wife took the good camera with her for the weekend, so this is the best I could do. Here you can see the PW rollmark.
That's not clear, apparently there were some guns that were imported as .38 Supers and then converted in the US by another company, but those bear the stamp of the conversion company in addition to the PW Arms stamp. This gun appears to be one of a batch that was imported as 9mm originally. It's possible that Sig Sauer did the conversion before shipping, as the mags are marked '38 Super Auto / 9mm Para', but all the research I've done would indicate that this gun was always a 9mm, which makes it part of that one specific batch of imports.
And yes, it is a fantastic shooter. With the Hogue stocks on it, it's smooth as butter and very controllable. I used it to pass my CCW test, then switched to a 1911 for carry, so it went back in the safe. Brought it out a couple of times over the years and always loved it, but I don't shoot it enough to justify keeping it when there are other toys on the horizon.
Looks good. I've been shopping for an extra 9mm P220 lately. Thinking that the converted 38s didn't have the serial on the 9mm barrel. The double stamped 38/9 mags would be from a conversion. They started off as 38 mags and the spacer was crimped in and the plate was stamped as 9mm Para. Later on the baseplates were left blank to streamline production. I don't think the conversion P220s would have any noticeable valuation difference. Some of them shipped with the .38 barrel that somehow found its way into the box for those lucky few who wound up with them. While these aren't particularly rare, the asking price is a good value for what is being offered.
