Looks like they were both from the same production run.


+16. Probably a safe bet.

Without the box denoting a Satin Nickel, how does one go about identifying if you have one? I have an AF serial number 229 that looks like the one by the OP. It has the 40 barrel that looks to be stainless also.

Nickel SIGs are fairly easy to recognize. Whether it's factory or not is another matter. To me, a real factory one has to fulfill one of the following.

1- Original owner.
2- Original case/box with confirmation label.
3- SIG confirms for you, in writing, that it is facfory finish. Verbal confirmation means nothing. If it's not in writing, it didn't happen.

Everything else is wishy washy. Ymmv.

Yes i bet they were a small run.

Yours is the first i recall ever reading about here on the forum from the same batch of serial numbers and with the stainless steel Bbl.
I recall other members with all SN 229 coatings but not “AL” and stainless bbls.


The all stainless factory bbls are uncommon. I have seen them from the same or close years in the 226/9 & 220/45 over the years here but not that many.


Enjoy yours and shoot it. Also pick up a 357sig bbl if you want to shoot that rd.

Sean7 can you post us a few more pics please? I think it would be sweet if they came with a stainless barrel as Mustang states. Any comments of the gun with stainless barrel Q?

Wow, that's nice.



"We may consent to be governed, but we will not be ruled." - Kevin D. Williamson, 2012

"All the citizens of this land are of right freemen; they owe no allegiance to any class and should recognize no task-masters. Under the chart of their liberties, under the law of high heaven, they are free and without shackles on their limbs nor mortgages upon the fruits of their brain or muscles; they bow down before no prince, potentate, or sovereign, nor kiss the royal robes of any crowned head; they render homage only to their God and should pay tribute only to their Government. Such at least is the spirit of our institutions, the character of our written national compact."

Charles Triplett O’Ferrall of Virginia - In Congress, May 1, 1888
