My most recent SIG's box:



Not quite as huge as the blue plastic thing that my Gen1 516 came in, but certainly big and awkward enough (to stow away).

Neat thread, btw.

The Royal Danish P-210 that lives inside this box belongs to a close friend.






Nice is overrated

And people wonder why I carry a SIG P320

Mid February 2015, Dan's Ammo had a new batch of Montage Suisse P225 Imports. I was quite surprised when the factory box was different than what I had observed in any other pistol box. The box was in excellent condition as was the pistol. I looked through the photo pages of the various boxes and saw none exactly the same.

If I could figure out how to post a picture I would share the box to my Browning BDA.

While going through E-Bay I saw an old Sig P230 Box that was a bit different than I had seen before so I put in a low bid and actually won it. I looked at this string but the closest thing I could find was a 225 box posted by Ugeesta near the bottom of page 1. This box is pristine except for a “crunch” on the left rear. The cardboard used in the box is noticeably heavier and of better quality than the later orange P230 boxes I have observed.

Unfortunately there were no other identifying marks on the box. Can anyone tell me what year this box was from? The P230 was introduced in 1977; I would assume it was from that era or the early 80’s.

I just purchased a 226 with a gray box last weekend. Serial # tells me it was from 1995. It is very accurate but with the Sig magazines it is not staying open on the last shot. After reading various blogs I maybe holding it wrong or need some MecGar magazines.

Okay, so my blue box looks like the other ones, however the label is completely different...



(Last two digits omitted.)



My other Sig is a Steyr...

Folks,
The value and content of this thread is diminishing because members are not keeping their photos posted. I was looking for a photo of an unusual tan-colored case and it is gone. If you change hosting sites, please move the photos to your new site. If you are leaving the forum, perhaps transfer your photos to another member.

Gary, I'm replacing my missing photo and adding a
couple more! Thanks for starting this thread!

Here is a black Law Enforcement that has been relabeled for a used 226.




And a blue one....



Here's one without the Sigarms name....




and one we don't hear much about....a Mauser M2
I believe Sig purchased the name in 1999 but the plant is now closed.

Interesting that this is a blue box with CPO labels; CPO boxes are usually red.

I really appreciate the effort from everyone and have learned a great deal from this thread.
My question is, when and what were the tan (light brown) plastic cases used to hold?

P239 40 S&W - nitron

Good question. Do you have one? The only one posted here was apparently taken down by the poster.

Sorry for taking so long to get back with you on this, I found a new P220 and the box was different.


Sig did make very few P220s in 9mm Steyr. I had a discussion in the pistols forum and it seemed to have little interest. You can read it by clicking here. I asked a friend of mine to send a request to the ATF to see how common the 9mm Steyr P220s are. A few months later she got a reply saying there were only two. Both of them are in my safe. There aren't any at the Smithsonian, the Cody Firearms Museum, or even Exeter NH.

Anyway, here is the box for a 9mm P220 X-Six made in 2016.




My other Sig is a Steyr...

Yes, with my P6 but I cannot confirm it was even close to original. I have never seen another and would like to find some parameters for that color. It would seem a bit different I guess. Please excuse my lack of knowledge.

GaryBF, this is one of those threads that I've been trying to remind myself for years to visit when I have a faster internet connection and more time... but I never seem to remember to.

An interesting effort, but I have to say that it is disappointing to see so many disabled picture links. I feel that I've missed a wealth of knowledge without them. I'd like to echo your comments and urge members to maintain their picture hosting links or pass their pictures on to someone who will. I can't imagine where we would be with the long running SN thread if members didn't provide that useful information.

On your first post, sixth picture down, of the dark grey plastic box, you listed a number of SIGs that came in the box, but you omitted one. The P229. I'll leave it to you to determine whether that small detail is worth editing your post.

Also, a question. Are you interested in having duplicates posted of boxes, or are you seeking to keep a single example of each only. I have a number of SIG boxes that are duplicates of ones already posted.

I also have a couple boxes that aren't currently pictured in the thread.

Email sent to profile contact.
