** This is not mine. **

New member Fire Dude asked me to post pics of this P228 of his that he acquired recently from an estate sale, to see if anyone knows anything about this gun. According to Fire Dude, SIG CS couldn't help. This is an older gun, from 1997 production, according to owner. I told him that I don't know the origin of this particular engraved SIG, but based on the presentation case with the American Historical Foundation plaque on it, I thought that it is likely an aftermarket customization job, and not SIG factory original. The American Historical Foundation is known to do a lot of these types of commemorative engraved guns. Either way, looks like a nice job, imo.

Yeah....American Historical Foundation did a lot of similar guns. The Cabelas by me has a Thompson, M1 Carbine and a few others all by them. Similar style.

Must be more than one or, its part of a series of arms, maybe even all Sigs ? The oak leaf pattern is very pretty. Need that on your mantle 12131.

Awesome Karma! I'm in...

Thats a sweet looking P228 for sure. Anyone here would be proud to have it on display.



My other Sig is a Steyr...

When should we expect Fire Dude to file his range report?

Wow, with the American Gov't seal no less. NO. 3, wonder where the rest of them went to?

definitely looks to have been done to a "regular" P228 after the fact. the work looks first-rate, but aesthetically doesn't really fit with the ethos of Sig Sauer back in those days

I know a guy who has a Colt 1911 done by this company. Only a few hundred in that run.

Their website has some models with runs from a hundred to a couple thousand.
