Here is something for P49/P210 service pistols fans in this group. Here is part of my P210 showing those pieces that were used in 'service'
While some may look at p210s as fancy target pistols, one should not forget that they started as true *service* pistols back in 1947 when the first 47/8 models were made.
Danish Military ordered M49s first in late 1948, Swiss Army adapted P49 in 1949. West German Berder police tool deliveries in early 50s.
Top row: MILITARY
- Late 40s and early 50s Danish Military M49s and early 50s Swiss Army P49s (both in polished blue and matte)
Center row: POLICE (all 4 with loaded chamber indicators)
- West German Border Police 210-4s and the 'super hard to find' Swiss Police 210-3s
While the pistols in top two rows were 'contract pistols' with specific features and serial numbers, the the third row shows regular commercial P210-1, P210-2 and P210-6 adopted by Thurgau Canton Police.This message has been edited. Last edited by: BullBarrel,

Pickin' stones and pullin' teats is a hard way to make a living. But, sure as God's got sandals, it beats fightin' dudes with treasure trails.
We've been tricked, we've been backstabbed, and we've been quite possibly, bamboozled.
Wow! Just wow!

The colored Swiss cross grips are rather sharp. Are you selling those now?
P220 - 9mm (JD, KF, KH); SP2022 - 9mm
That is a beautiful collection.
Outstanding collection of pistols.
No car is as much fun to drive, as any motorcycle is to ride.
If some of those standard duty grips were available for the 210A I'd buy one.
** Has anyone tried converting any "rubber" grips to the 210A? Large target grips is the only thing stopping my from buying one.

Beautiful collection! The fact that the P210 began as and remained for over 25 years a service pistol with target gun accuracy is what makes it so desirable to me.
That is one Fantastic collection BullBarrel, well done!!

Great collection of police and military 210s! Your mention of the 210's origins brought to mind a phrase Col. Cooper used, "combat target" pistols. The 210's legendary reputation led me to buy a new P210-2 back in the '80s. I was hooked, and have enjoyed owning several P210s since.
