Just found and bought this P220 German w/nickel slide Login/Join

No one else bid. Did not have to pay $100 more for the buy it now. Best sub $500 gun I have ever bought! (Well, maybe that Colt 357 in rare 6 inch barrel that I got at Cabelas 4 years ago for $350 was a better deal !)

Are the nickel slides fairly rare? I do not know much about them.

Congrats! TT SIGs are not at all rare though, even in LNIB condition.

Thanks. This one has some use on it, but that is ok. Using it for a suppressor host, since my threaded barrel does not work in the P220s compensated. Gunsmith says P220 and P220s have slightly different barrels. Not too many p220 models out there less than $495!

Most of the two tone uppers are stainless, not nickel, correct?

What do you mean when you say 220s? Have never seen a 220s designation.

Folded carbon steel slides are nickel plated.
Stainless slides are stainless.
As to the exact numbers, no one knows.

My WAG is that he was talking about the ones with the stainless slides.

Kind of what I was assuming too.

Great looking P220 you have there. The Nickel adds a nice touch.

Another P220S here. This one was made just about 11 months ago.




My other Sig is a Steyr...

Very nice. I bought some grips like yours but they are sao (for supermatch model), and do not fit my da/sa 220s.

^^LOL$$ Bet that S model wasn't a sub $500 gun:-) Fantastic deal OP. Congrats.

BTW, I thought Sig exports to the US were done. Apparently knott. That S is a beaut. Was it closer to @ $1700 or so ?

Actually, my 220s sport compensated is older, was at my regular local gun shop on consignment last year. The owner of the gun shop brought it to my attention, as he knows I like Sigs. The owner of the gun died, his son, a non shooter, wanted it gone. The gun shop owner never looked the value of the gun up. It is a sig 220, he thought, so $650 out the door was the price! In box with all paperwork. I could not buy it fast enough. Someone posted they bought the same model used for $1600 the prior month, and thought that was a good deal. I had posted here about this when I got it. The compensator finish was spotty on the side laying in the box. Sig Academy Store sent it back to Sig (I live 2 miles from the Sig Factory here in Portsmouth, NH). Sig refinished the compensator for free,function checked the rest of the gun, gave me the proper hex key to remove the compensator (my hex key was stripped) mailed it back to me. THAT was a deal. I have been taking it to the range every warm day. Yesterday, today, and a day last week. So smooth shooting and well balanced.

There are ways to still import them, but not through Sig.
