Yeah, with the K-Koted slide, the entire pistol is jet black. These are very handsome SIGs.
It's funny- the very first time I saw a P225 was in the pages of the old Handgun Tests magazine. There was a brief article about a guy who had stopped a bank robbery with a Chief's Special, a Model 60 IIRC. Phil Engledrum, the editor of Handgun Tests gave the man a SIG-Sauer P225. Phil felt that anyone so brave should have a bit mre firepower. There was a picture of the man holding his new pistol. I thought tit was the ugliest thing I'd ever seen. I couldn't understand why the trigger guard was so HUUUUUGE.
The trigger guard was what first attracted me to the P225 and SIGs in general. I sent away for gun catalogs as a kid in the 80’s. The P225 looked so entirely different from every handgun I’d ever seen (mostly old colts and smith revolvers and .22 autos of my Dad’s).
I was fascinated and aroused. Took me about 30 years to get one.
Stupid question: what’s K-Kote

Ever notice how some (or maybe all) of the early P225s have a trigger with a slightly different contour at the rear? There's less if a curve near the top of the trigger, at the back of it, resulting in a slightly thicker-looking trigger.
