Why do they say "is he known to carry any weapons"? like it is a bad thing?
Oh boy there are so many 228's I have yet to own like those 12131 has...and the triple S/N 228R is one that caught my eye...blink, blink, I now have several new grail guns to find!
It's not like I changed the slide on the gun, this is the way it came in from the Sig Academy. It has the special K Cote finish and the MP (magnetic particle) testing etching. And it's not only on one, I had two of these, but sold one, both same as what you see in the pic. I'll try and get a pic of the other one.

The 228 was featured at least once as Sig's Gun-of-the-Month (GOTM).

I swore allegiance to the 228 many years ago. Sadly, I don't own one right now. I've had 4 different ones, including a DAO which was a mistake but I ended up liking it anyway.
This thing had a Bar Sto match barrel, Crimson Trace grips, and was good time shooting at paper.
Sorry, I misread your post and thought that there were no proof marks anywhere on your M11B, but you were only talking about the slide. That was why I was confused and thought there might be U.S. assembled M11Bs. Are the three proof marks on the left side of the barrel hood?
When I was responding about running out of German proofed slides not making sense, I was trying to say slides are not proofed, just completed guns, so slides do not necessarily have to have a proof mark. And as I recall OTD saying before, triple serial numbers is not a legal requirement by Germany, but more of a tradition.
I thought I was doing a good job of staying out of trouble, but I guess I haven't been completely successful.
It's BA (2010). So, I will make correction. Thanks!
Hey, at least a glimpse of it?
Oh yes, you are right. How could I forget. Thanks for reminding. Will make an additional note. And, I invite you to post yours.
Always fond of those Swiss police P228s.
I thought the 228 Nickel I sold you last week would be unique (it was in my small collection) only to find out via this thread that you already have these!
Oh well, at least it's in good company.
Well done on the thread.

Okay, here's the other M11B, oddly S/N on the Frame & Slide, but not on the barrel (the barrel is stamped "DE"), I have seen some with the triple S/N as well.
Excellent thread 12131, please accept my apologies if I muddied it up a bit, but I think the M11B is now well represented, along with all the other awesome 228's you have presented.
Yes, 12131, an excellent and very informative thread. Glad you put all of this information in one place and in "writing".
Awesome post! I miss my P228R that I traded to a forum member here (I forgot his name!) for a P30 that I LOVE. But I still miss that 228R. I know I'm the odd man out but I really like the look of the rail on the 228. And I like the 228 slide so no 229 for me.
No apology necessary, D. I'm really glad you brought up the discussion, with pics of the M11B variants. It helps consolidating everything into one place. Thanks.
12131, you're welcome, appreciate you staying on point!
Thanks for all the time and effort you put into this posting
Do you know if the P228 started with the serial number B000 000 or maybe B100 000? I'm asking because I have a P228 with the serial number B100 6xx (JK)
